I can get my hands on a number of K-mount lenses from a friend. I see myself picking up a Pentax down the line, so I wanted to see if it would be worth it pick these lenses up now if I plan on getting one of Pentax' higher end cameras in the future. If Pentax does indeed come out with a full-frame camera in the next few years, would it make one that supports K-mount lenses without an adapter? It doesn't look like the company does so with its medium-format cameras, so I'm a little apprehensive...
I have the KonicaMinolta 11-18/4.5-5.6 and use it, primarily, for landscapes. I think it has too much CA, and problems with being sharp at the corners - but is there a better alternative? I see Sigma 10-20 and Samyang 10/2.8 as the best alternatives, but are they any better when it comes to image quality? It is to be used with A77 and I have no plans on going to FF. I have both Samyang 8mm and ZA 16-80 in my line up, so it's the gap between those two I would like to keep closed. Any...
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...
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...
