I consider myself as a hobbyist ever since owning a Powershot A560 when I was 13, 7 years ago. I haven't used my camera for a long time due to school, yet I would still shoot with my phone or a colleague's DSLR during school events. Recently, my phone's rear camera stopped working, and my old camera is now worn out (my brother used the camera for quite a long time), thus I'm looking for a new camera. I like to shoot in low light, thus sensor size is important. DOF also seem to be important....

Does anyone know anything about the rumour that when Ricoh took over the Pantax brand, some of the top lens designers for Pentax went to work for Tamron?  I was wondering if  this could explain why Tamron doesn't offer anything new in K-mount any more?  Or is it totally rumour & nothing to it. Cheers.

Hi, I am wondering if anyone has heard of a K-mount adaptor for the sony E- mount that allows you to connect to the camera electronically, i.e. the lens can be controlled by the camera. I have bought an adaptor that allows you to connect the lens but everything has to be completed manually. My original camera was a Pentax MZ-60 and I have recently purchased the Sony Alpha 6000. Just trying to use the lens I currently have, rather than spending heaps on new ones. Lis

Hey guys, I'm looking for a pentax K-mount telephoto lens I can shoot fully manual (aperture, focus) on my non-pentax mirrorless camera. One of the lenses I'm looking at is the Pentax-FA 100-300 F4.7-5.8 along with the Promaster 70-300 f4-5.6 and finally the Sigma 70-210mm f4-5.6 UC. The Pentax 100-300 looks to be nicely light-weight but I had read somewhere it can only be manually focused if attached to a pentax body that has a mf/af switch. Is that true? I'd appreciate any thoughts you...

Hi guys, I just got an old lense for my nex5, but I have no idea about pentax's mounts, I have googled it but I am still confused. Should I but m42-to-nex or k-mount-to-nex? Thanks in advance.

Alright. I have the NEX-3 and while I do enjoy the camera very much I just can't live without a viewfinder. Not to mention the AF is atrocious compared to phase detect AF. So anyway, I'm planning on getting an a6000. However, I'm not happy with lens options. I have an a700 as well and the KM 28-75 f/2.8 lives on it. I want a 2.8 zoom for E-mount as well, but it just doesn't seem to exist. So. I did get the 16 f/2.8 with my NEX-3. Keeping that. I'd like to supplement it with something in the...

Hello Everyone, I need your advice please, but maybe a newbie question :) I recently purchased a Nikon AF-S VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED. The first time I used it I shot a car rally. The lens has allowed me to make great shots but, in some of these, the details in background appears splitted (not in all). The camera was hand-helded, with stabilizer on, AF-C and Af-ON used. At the moment of shoot, Af-ON was pressed, in order to retain focus on the front bumper of the car. Linked photo: 1/1000...

On my old Minolta Dynax 7 (film camera) and KM Dynax 7D i could test trigger the flash by pressing the AEL button. The same doesen't work with my A7. Is there any other way to test trigger a flash with the A7? Thanks

I have a bunch of old K-mount pentax lenses from my father. I'm thinking of buying a dslr camera (probably thinking about pentax K-5) but I would like to know if this lenses will work on the dslr body. I know pentax Pentax likes to brag that ANY lens ever made for a Pentax 35mm camera can be used on their new digital cameras, but is it true? How does it work? Doesn't it need any kind of adapter ou converter ring? Is it possible to get autofocus? autoexposure?  Thanks a lot
