Hi.I'm new to DSLR and I am considering several for my first. I really like the Pentax WR since I want to be able to bring my camera in most kind of weather (even cold, I'm Norwegian). But I am unsure if the Pentaxes AF is quick enough to do sports, animals in flight etc. (will also do other kinds of photography, but what it to be able to do stuff like that too).I know I have to practice my aim and timing etc to get good action shots, but I would also like the camera to be able to handle it....

Hi.I am buying a DSLR, but I cannot make up my mind (not the first post I post here either). :pI will be shooting much handheld while hiking and like to take pictures of animals. I don't have any lenses or brand preference. I want the camera to be able to do some action (moving animals) and sports too, in addition to landscape/nature/architecture and well.. an all-round camera. :)I've found these "bundles" that will cost me the same, and wonder which I should go for (which of these will give...

Hi.Is the AF quick and precise enough on the K-30, K-5 and/or K-5 II with the 18-135WR kit lens good enough to get most pictures in-focus (as long as I don't miss completely)?I think I'd rather want the K-5 (because of price compared to the K-5 II and buffer size and LCD-screen compared to the K-30), but as I've understood it I might have to opt for the K-30 or the K-5 II instead (the latter is a tad out of my budget if I'm going for the 18-135 WR kit).Any thoughts or experiences?(I might get...

Hi everyone,I regularly follow DPReview articles but haven't participated much in the forums.  However, I am in the market for a new DSLR and am having just the hardest time deciding which direction to go.  Let me first give you a little background on what I am typically shoot.  Most of my shots are of the travel, architecture, landscape/nature, and macro variety.  Most importantly though, I need something to take pictures of my very active toddler.  I tend to shoot mostly in manual mode, so...

I recently read some information regarding a Pentax camera and thought that the camera was better than most Nikons! However, as I have invested in Nikon lenses, I would only buy a Pentax camera if there was a way to attach Nikon lenses to a Pentax body without damaging the lenses. Does such a way exist? Do lens adapters greatly affect image quality? Thanks!

I know there has been a lot of discussion on some of the questions I raise below already, but this is scattered all around over the forum. So here my hope is to open a "summary thread" on the question:"K5 II vs. K5  - What is improved and how much?"Specifically, my questions are:- How much is the AF system improvement noticeable in practice, under a) good light?, b) low light? ("Improvement" meaning better AF speed and reliability under these conditions)- Particularly, how much is continuous...

So I have a K-5 II that I'm using with a Tamron 28-75 mm f2.8 lens, and so far have been less than satisfactory results with sports and action shots. I am going to set up some focusing tests here in the next day or two, but I was wondering what settings people have been using successfully for sports and action?

Hi,I am thinkingabout to buy the K5 II with the 18-135 for 1350 €. The shop gives a refund of 150. Then I could buy a good prime for ~ 400 € (Probably I would need to buy it somewhere else).The alternative is to buy a Nikon D600 for 1600 € (which means to get a Nikkor 50mm F1.8 for free) and buy a Nikon 24-85 fpr ~ 400 €.What does make more sense to you?What would you do?

Hi,I am thinking about to buy the D600 in a shop that will give a 150€ refund. That money would buy me a Nikkor 50mm F1.8, which is as far as I heard a quite good lens. So I would get a D600 with a good prime for ~ 1600 €.Then I plan to buy a 24-85, which will roll in front of me for 300 - 350 € in used condition.Does this make sense to you?The alternative ist to buy a K5 II with a 18-135 lense for 1350 € and later a Pentax prime for 450€.What would you do?
