Hello all.  Can anyone recommend literature on how to make the best of the Pentax K5ii, for someone who needs a bit of hand-holding?  The manual can be a bit too dry:).  Thanks.

Hi, I'm looking for a compact case for carrying my K-3 and one medium sized walk-around lens - the largest lens I'm thinking of would be a Sigma 17-50 2.8 that I just got on the black Friday sale. It should also work other lenses like my (smaller) DA 18-135 and even my Rokinon 8mm Fisheye. Bonus points for a case with changeable front ends for different size lenses, if such a thing exists. Of course any case for a K-3 should also work on the K-5 series or just about any other recent Pentax...

My new K-5lls is at 1.0. Which is the easiest way to update: via cable to computer or to memory card? Thanks, Tom W(ret) --...a bad picture is like a missed putt, it's never your fault.http://photographybythomaswhitehurst.zenfolio.com

Just received mine yesterday and was trying to find some info on the AA filter. Is it off as default or on? Where in the menu does it appear? Here are two I took indoors, Weather did not cooperate for using outside. Lens was Tamron AF 17-50mm f2.8 IF it is new to me also. I think I'm going to enjoy them both. Thanks, Tom K-5lls very low light no flash. K-5lls with on board flash very low light  --...a bad picture is like a missed putt, it's never your...

Hi, I have a K5 that has two, probably related, problems, and I'm looking for a K-5 service manual and/or repair advice. I don't know how the problems occurred. The problems are: 1) I cannot make the focus knob turn from C to AF.S so it appears something may be broken inside. 2) When I press the shutter or engage live view the first time, I hear what sounds like the shutter closing, but it takes about 1/2 a second when the setting is for 1/125 second. Similar things happen under live view...

I'm sure this has been ask many times. I'm getting a new K-5iis and will put my K-5ii on ebay. Someone will want to know this. I know its very low but that won't do for an answer?

Hello fellow Pentax bird shooters. I have not posted in a while because I've been tied up with other things. I'd appreciate your advice based on your experience (not test charts) in photographing birds, and specifically BIF. Please note that I have spent several hours searching this forum and others and have seen many examples of what Pentax and other brands can do in the BIF department. However, the pricing on the K3 in particular now is pressing me to consider options and if I'm going to...

I may have missed something, but I suspect there isn't yet such a converter.  I would love one as I've just managed to acquire a Pentax K 28/3.5 shift lens.  Unfortunately that gives a 42mm crop on my K-5 and wouldn't I very much enjoy getting 11mm of shift in any direction at a crop factor of 28mm. Thanks in advance, --BAB

I upgraded from the K-5. I have the impression from lurking around various forums that the while the K-3 features many, many important improvements over its predecessors, the K-5 series still reigns supreme in terms of usable ISO range. Of course, I am NOT stating this as fact. It's only an impression, a gathered notion. What do you think? And what do you feel is the K-3's usable ISO range? Do you use Noise Ninja or similar software when you edit your serious photos, as a matter of routine,...
