  • Created discussion thread K-3 III First Impressions..
    This is not a review, just some initial impressions from using the K-3 III for a week. Bit of background, I've used Pentax with K-10, K-20, K-5 and two K-3 bodies. After using the K-3 III for a ...
  • Replied in Portrait lens
    Primes are generally better for portraits. I recommend 50mm or longer. I either use my 50mm f1.4, my 70mm ltd.
  • Nice mention of this on the petapixel website. https://petapixel.com/2023/12/07/pentax-gives-the-k-1-ii-the-gps-free-astrotracer-the-k-3-iii-got-last-year/
  • That's a shame. My DA 35mm ltd is one of my favourite lenses. Why would they not have included it? Shame on you Pentax.. I don't have the k-3 III yet, but this would have been an additional ...
  • I still have 2 X-700 bodies I bought new in the eighties. I became discouraged with Minolta when they changed the mount for the autofocus cameras later which would have orphaned my glass if I'd ...

  • Created discussion thread New puppy..
    I haven't posted much for a long time, and lately I have even less time. Much of it is taken up with a new family member. Meet Sarah.. This was back in June and one of my first photos of her. She's ...
  • Created discussion thread K-20 IBIS Failure...
    I mostly shoot with my two K-3 (mk1 classic) bodies these days. But once in awhile I blow the dust off my K-20 and do some shooting with the 16-45mm attached. Last time I tried I was shocked to ...
  • Created discussion thread Toronto Pentax Dealers?
    I used to like going to Downtown Camera. They don't even list Pentax anymore. I'd like to see (feel, touch) the K-3 III and the monochrome version. (I have 2 K-3 classic bodies and thinking of ...
  • Replied in Transformation
    Beautiful, yes. Cheers.
  • It's my favourite lens. As sharp as many primes. Have fun!
