  • 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 ...
  • Replied in Well said...
    ...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 ...
  • Replied in Did you...
    SAVE the camera settings ( including AV-Mode setting (+10) ) to User-1 Mode before selecting it? Just curious... M
  • Replied in the topic
    Next day, or two at the most... If it breaks, buy a new replacement. Repair the broken one when convenient, then keep it as a backup, or sell it. No problems... M
  • Congratulations: You've taken the first step in the right direction... Digital photography is all input --> post process --> output. Your most important decision will be your post processing ...

  • Replied in Next Step?
    OK... What are you going to do now? Cheers... M
  • Replied in All bets off?
    New K-1 firmware version: http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/digital/k1.html Does this mean we get an endless 're-do' on this thread? Cheers... M
  • Replied in Huh... ?
    Previous version(s) work great for me... K-1<~~~>Android Easy... peasy, no problems... Cheers & enjoy the season... M
  • Do you have the most recent firmware installed? My friend was grousing about the performance of his K-1 only to discover he had never updated its firmware from the original factory setting. Once ...
  • Replied in Lens Issue?
    You're sure...? Which Pentax branded lenses ( you do not indicate ownership of any Pentax branded lenses in your profile)? Again, when acquiring focus, the camera must instantly communicate with ...
  • Replied in Lens Issue?
    Do you get the same results with Pentax branded lenses ? Could it be that your third party lens might be on the poor end of the manufacturer's QC spectrum making it unable to deliver consistent ...
  • Replied in Huh...?
    OP's observation at total odds with my experience over the past several years. The K-1/K3 II/K-3 paired to the DA*300/4+HD 1.4TC produces consistently pleasing excellent results with ease. In ...
  • Perhaps, you need to get out more, or hang with a different crowd. I know plenty. How about these folks? http://us.ricoh-imaging.com/index.php/community/ambassadors Cheers... M
