Does anyone have a white K-50 or K-30? I just bought a K-3 and was planning to keep my K-x as a second body. But since I needed a couple of WR lenses for rainy-day shooting, I think I've decided to sell the K-x and just get the WR lenses in a kit with the K-50. Comes out to be about the same net cost, and I get a new camera for the backup. Anyway, I really like the looks of the white K-50, and that kit is only $20 more than the black. But I have two questions first: Does the white part of...

I just ordered the K-3 as a replacement for my K-x, and I’m trying to choose a WR lens or two. There are two situations in which I find myself wanting WR: Hiking, usually shooting waterfalls. Typically I shoot these with the DA21, but it’s not WR for times when it’s raining. Shooting youth flag football. I almost always use the Tamron 70-200/2.8 for this, but again it’s not WR when it rains. After spending the money on the new body, I can really only afford to spend ~$300 for now. So I...

Hello to you all, My wife and I are planning a trip to India in February 2016. We love India, and it will be my fourth trip in this wonderful country, but it will be our first journey with some wildlife photography in mind. We’ll visit North India : Rajhastan, Taj Mahal, and we plan to spend some days in national parks : 4-5 days in Corbett for sure, and maybe Keoladeo with birds in mind or Ranthambore for tigers. What kind of lenses would you advise us to take ? We already have bodies :...

I just picked up a beautiful KX dslr. I will need a lens or two and am thinking a 28mm or 35mm K-mount. Any thoughts about this? I have a good bridge camera with plenty of focal length so the KX will be my walking around camera.

Sorry for the long post. Thanks to those who read it, and thanks in advance for any input, suggestions, etc. OK, first, I'm all excited! I bought a K-3 today! I should get it by Monday! But I have a question: I currently shoot with a K-30. I bought a K-3 in part because of the improved AF performance. I own only ONE lens with the motor built into the lens itself: The Sigma 18-250 OS HSM. I like to shoot sports, but only when my kids are involved. (I'm not a "serious" sports shooter.) I shoot...

Hello everybody! I have bought some day ago a Metz 52 AF-1 for my K-x. The behaviour of the flash seems erratic. Half of the shots are good (or even underexposed 1 stop). The other half results from a heavily underexposed to almost black; these shots are unusable. I wonder if it is the flash in error or the match between camera and flash. Gear tested: K-x + (16-45 or 18-250) + ISO 400. Thanks!

Hello, I used Nikon D5000, Pentax K-x and Sony A65. Now i want to use either Sony a7 or Pentax  K5IIS. I have some good M42 lenses to use with either of them but i need some advice about both cameras from who used both of them to check the advantages and disadvantages of both even they are belong to different kinds (Full frame and APS-C frame) with regards.
