  • Replying to your own post is a bit pathetic, but here it goes with a bit more. I also looked at my overall usage singe 2014 (i.e., 3 2/3 years) and the KP has been my most used camera (even though ...
  • Oh, you mean the K-01 ;-)  Actually I have one and I like in certain situations.  Good IQ too. Doug
  • Interesting.  You don't miss having something between the DA15 and DA40, e.g., a DA21? Doug
  • Two things come to mind... Have you AF fine tuned it?  Also it is best stepped down a bit.  Try it at f4, although it won't give you the narrow DOF you might be looking for. Doug
  • I very much doubt the Pentax's primary goal was to save money on this, nor that it adds significantly to the cost. OTOH is is well built and very flexible in its use. Doug
  • I have used it on my last 3 vacations and it works well.  Before I got it I used to use the DA21 + DA40.  Although a bit bigger than the 2 primes combined it is more convenient. Doug
  • The Q is no longer made and is getting hard to find.  It is a fun and well featured although limited by the small sensor.  My one regret is they never got around to making a telephoto macro, ...
  • I could have done  NT reply/like to this but did a full text reply to emphasize it.  A few minor edits for me but basically the same response.  Compatibility and value for money. Doug
  • Hi, Thanks to all those that provided their thoughts. General consensus seems to be to forget about the DA20-40 + DA1.4xTC combination. Also, a few of suggestions were to add the DA70 to replace ...
  • I think I know where this is ;-) I did a tree fan shape picture a few months ago that I thought was so-so on but others liked.  Maybe a bit of cropping to emphasize it? Doug
  • I do want the Macro ability of the DFA100.  The main purpose of the TC is to stretch it out to 140mm. Doug
  • Replied in Humidity
    Ahhh, I was there in December, that explains it.  Still surprised at the humidity level though! And again nice picture.  It reminds me a bit of a Canadian photograper Freeman Patterson who did a ...
  • Replied in Humidity
    I like the picture, but... Is uae = United Arab Emirates?  I never associate it with that level of humidity!  It was not like that when I was there! Doug
  • Created discussion thread DA 20-40 Ltd + DA 1.4x TC?
    Has anyone tried this combination? I am going on vacation next week and going through the typical "what lenses to bring angst".  I am not asking here which lenses to bring overall, but specifically...
  • Replied in 6 Lenses
    Fair enough.  Some have replied with both FF and APS selections.  All is good, have fun ;-) Doug
  • Replied in 6 Lenses
    Good response so far, and a lot of variety! FWIW, my list based on what I have, shooting APS (KP, K-3, K-01): DA15 DA20-40 FA31 DA*50-135 DA70 DFA100 I have a DA 14.x TC so that would extend my DFA ...

    The converter is a freebee ;-) Doug
  • Replied in 6 Lenses
    I almost said APS and not FF since this is what I shoot but left it open.  When I post my list the longest will probably be 135mm but I know a lot of people will want 300-500mm for the type of ...

    Actually I started at 8 but that I thought It might be a lot for some.  I am starting from 24 current k-mount lenses so the *pruning* is the fun challenge. Doug
  • Replied in 6 Lenses
    You have a bit of a gap from 77 to 200.  Is that OK? Doug
