Currently, I use my K100D mostly with my M42-lenses. I encounter one problem tough: Many of these lenses have a pin, which when not engaged means the lens will remain wide open, regardless of the setting of the aperture ring. Meanwhile I have 2 adapters which do not engage this pin. They are cheap and work well with the lenses without the pin. However, I am unable to find an adapter which does engage the pin and also still allows for infinity-focus. Probably I am looking in the wrong...
I want to get an all-around zoom for shooting in conditions where I don't want to change lenses. I'm looking at the Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro and the Pentax smc DA 18-270 f/3.5-6.3. I have Pentax k100 and k10 and soon a k3II, so was leaning toward Pentax figuring same maker, better compatibility. But learned that it is actually made by, I think, Tamron. So now I wonder if that makes compatability a non-issue. Otherwise, specs, reviews and comments are similar, and Sigma is $100...
My path with Pentax has been: K100D, great little camera but back then I didn't take this that serious, with primes and raw and post processing. K5 - awesome, loved it, still have it, still works, kinda worn K3-II - similar to K5, needs to be taken to repairs KP - just bought and is great, takes awesome pics, but feels slightly downgrade-ish due to smaller battery and slightly weaker burst in RAW. LOVE the controls. Will probably buy a K1 to see what FF is all about, but maybe there's a...
I have been a Pentax user since the early 1960's, my first SLR even had a screw lens mount. I have had many Pentax cameras over the years. This was the first, but not my only Pentax digital camera. The e-dial has become faulty and often does not change parameters correctly. I sent it to Precision Camera. They returned it stating parts no longer available. It appears they did not even try and open it, perhaps a cleaning is all thats necessary. I am a retiree now on a fixed income and don't...
I have several lower end Pentax mount lens that I previously used in a 35mm Ricoh. Rather than buying an entire new system of some brand I'm questioning buying a used Pentax that can still use these. I am very, very much a novice who would like to experience a bit more potential than provided by my point & shoot Olympus. Ease of use is a priority, too. If I shouldn't go this route I'd appreciate some recommendations on a newer easy to use system of some sort that I can get into for around...

I have a Panasonic 7-14mm modified (using Anders W method of installing the 8.5mm fish-eye rear filter holder) to take gel filters. I have two different 75mmx75mm Kodak Wratten gelatin filter sheets - one is ND 0.9, the other is 2B. I want to install these filters (and swap them in the field, while hiking) - the first to shoot running water/etc., the second to get rid of the purple blobbing issue which is somehow really bad on my lens. Questions: a. How do I figure out which size to cut? Is...
Hi all, decided that I needed a "serious" flash (at least compared to the built-in one) to go with my K100D Super and bought a cheap, non-TTL, non-HSS flash that is often regarded as a good product for newbies (Couldn't spend five times or so as much in order to get a Metz). I have started researching and still in the thick of it regarding all things flash (reading The Hot Shoe Diaries, great book!) but I still have black spots here and there. :-| Question: can I trigger the Yongunuo with the...
