  • Since AF in the K100D is screw drive only, it can be used to convert a dead (or dying) SDM AF motor to screw drive in some (not all) older Pentax lenses. A while back, I bought a used DA*200/2.8 ...

  • ...your Canon 'lessons learned' do NOT translate to success with your K-1? Have you researched how to properly fine-tune the AF focus points of your lenses paired to your K-1 and applied ...
  • My experience, as well. If you use third-party plugins (NIK, Perfectly Clear, etc) in the older version of LR(CC), you'll need to move the respective folder(s) from the old "Plugins" location to ...
  • Replied in ETTR
    Seemingly due to their quirky proprietary sensors, I've found ETTR is mostly advocated by Canon DSLR users. Since Pentax uses a different sensor and implements exposure controls differently, I've ...
  • How do you know subtle improvements have not happened? Assuming your DPR gear list is up to date, will your off-brand lens line-up be able to recognize the benefits? Magical thinking is easy but ...
  • For some composition tips, see... http://www.fotografiewimvanvelzen.nl/publication02.htm Cheers... M
  • Replied in Yep...
    ... that's one more reason I love the built-in GPS geotagging feature of cameras more modern than the K-x (as good as it was... I used one for years :-D ). Cheers... M
  • Replied in Pssst...
    TP... You forgot to add <sarc></sarc> tags... eh? Cheers... M
  • Replied in Perhaps...
    Thank you for your clarification. Again, here's how my K-1 behaves using a DA 21 with AF-FA set to +10 in TAv mode for testing purposes. The lens has never been paired with or saved to any of the ...
  • Replied in Perhaps...
    ... a USER Mode requires a saved programmed 'purpose' before it will recognize the AF-FA of an attached lens. In an attempt to reproduce the OP's issue using my K-1 (FW ver:1.41), I found my ...
  • Have you considered editing your RAW file "in-camera" using the provided editing tools, converting the resulting image to a downsized JPG, then uploading the JPG to your smartphone for distribution? ...
  • I'm in the field travelling from location to location almost everyday. The built-in GPS of the K-1 seamlessly documents my photog activities. For me, it's a 'must have' feature. Cheers... M
  • Replied in Good Decision...
    Know the feeling... converted my pokey SDM DA*200/2.8 to screw drive. The low buzz of the focusing mechanics passes without notice. Lens is fast and accurate... works great, again ! BTW: Is your ...
  • Replied in Perhaps...
    Pentax's home market prospects/buyers know something others have yet to figure out... eh? Enjoy the season... M
  • Replied in Good Decision
    Good decision. I like to work fast with the freedom to maneuver easily. The DA*300/4+HD 1.4 TC is my field kit of choice, as well... paired to a K-1 (vignettes in FF... but I crop to compose ...

    ...and bookmarked. Thank you... M
  • Replied in Lens AF...
    ...switched to select AF, NOT MF? Just curious... M
  • Replied in Did you...
    Yep... I did the same check, as you on my K-1 & K-3II and got the same results as yours. I don't have a KP, but I have a hard time imagining how it's going to be different. Stranger things have ...
  • Replied in Did you...
    My bad... MM is correct. There's really no reason for camera settings saved to a User Mode to include lens AF adjustments. After making the lens AF adjustment in AV mode, did you check to see if ...
