I am about to buy my first DSLR. After browsing through the internet for days and reading practically all available reviews, I short-listed the following- 1. Pentax K-S2 with an SMC DA 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 ED AL (IF) DC WR lens 2. Nikon D5500 with an AF-S DX 18-140 f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens I was very excited about the K-S2 but here in India we don't get Pentax cameras except on Amazon. And the lens too is unavailable as part of the kit. I'd have to get it imported from the US by B&H. Thus, I can't...

Hi, I currently have a midrange zoom and a long zoom for my K-3. The long zoom performs just fine. The midrange zoom seems to have problems with autofocus, and I hear that this is a common problem when people mount non-Pentax lenses on Pentax cameras.

I had it checked out and there is nothing wrong with the lens. I would like to get something a bit lighter and with a wider angle than 24mm. The 16-85mm WR would do this well and looks on paper to be a better lens than the other possible. that is the 18-135mm WR. Both of these are less than...
I am not a technical guy with respect to camera & lens equipment, and have just purchased a K-3 with the 18-135mm WR & 55-300mm WR lenses & a 1.4x TC. I am doing some "desktop experimenting" with these and a Polaroid 500D close-up lens, and find that the listed spec for minimum focusing distance on the 18-135mm is shown at .4m or ~16". I get a min. distance of ~7.5" at 18mm, and ~9.5" at 135mm with the bare lens. What am I missing? Thanks. CraigK
