I have just downloaded and installed DCU 5.6.1. I usually develop my RAW photos with Lightroom, but from time to time I also use DCU. To my surprise, it seems that Ricoh-Pentax has apparently dropped PEF support, as I cannot open PEF files from my former *ist DS or K10D with this updated version of their software. Now I use DNG on my K-7 and K-S2 bodies, but even some PEF shots taken with the K-7 cannot be open with DCU 5.6.1 Has Ricoh dropped PEF support intentionally or is it a bug? Or...
Sigma Zoom Master 35-70mm f2.8-4 or here Lately got a chance to buy this lens for small money. Knowing nothing about this old goody I thought I´ll give it a try on my trusty old K10D. Here two samples of what it produces mounted at the K10D : 70mm / f 5.6 Not a superfast and automatic lens, it still looks well built and gives the feeling of old time shooting style, but I wasn´t not looking for an all automatic fast lens. I think for really small money (~ 30,- to 40,- €) one can get...

Hi there, I recently purchased a K-S2 body, and am trying it out with my lens collection. For some reason, my Sigma 50-200 4-5.6 HSM acts weird. It sometimes works, but very often it won't focus, and the indications in the viewfinder go berzerk. The lens works flawlessly on my Samsung GX-10 (Aka Pentax K10d), and all my other lenses work fine on the K-S2 (although the Sigma is the only one with a built-in focus motor) Anyone experienced something similar? Regards, Peter.
I'm new to photography and would like some advice. I have a K10D with the kit lens. I'd like to try shooting bird photos. Is 300mm zoom enough to get usable pictures? Sigma, Tamron and Pentax all have similar lenses in this range but the Pentax is $100 more. Is the picture quality better with the Pentax that justifies the extra cost? Money is a real factor for me so Sigma and Tamron are what I'm leaning towards. Thamks for any input. And I really like reading the forums. Great group.
So ive been having mixed results with my Pentax K10d, just curious if you have any recommendations. Tonight, I turned on the debug mode because ive had a lot of soft results especially at 18mm with the 18-55mm kit lens. With my 50mm F1.4 M lens I am to blind to manually focus. The catch in focus has been consistently wrong too. I set af in debug mode +60 and now the manual focus lens is much better with catch in focus (or I am getting lucky) with the 18-55mm lens I was getting better...
I think my search skills are not up to scratch, but I could not find the information. Anyway ... I need to finetune AF on both my K10D and K-5; for the latter because the +10 adjustment no longer seems to cut it for a number of lenses. K10D V1.30The AF test menu has an entry for an af area test; I can select numbers from 0 to 3. What are they? K-5 V1.16 (if not mistaken)Except for af area test, the AF test menu also has an entry for af area number; I can elect numbers from 0 to 10. What are...
Learned folk, I know it will be very old hat for most of you folks, but I have just acquired a Pentax K10d, as a progression, and to supplement, my beloved K100d. Not being at all familiar with the K10d, I wondered if the noticeable feeling and sound of a "bump", and a light thudding, when rotating the camera, was a characteristic of this model. The camera seems to perform fine and I wondered if it could be something to do with the sensor cleaning mechanism? Any ideas folks? Regards...
Hello, I have unfortunately lost all my photo gear in an accident. My gear bag containing all my equipment got crushed under the wheels of a 40t truck. :( So I am back to square 1. I used to shoot with a Pentax K5 + Pentax K20D, a DA* 50-135 f/2.8, the DA* 16-50 f/2.8 and the F 70-210 f/4-5.6. Since I have to completely rebuild my full gear on a tight budget I have been studying several options. First of all I mainly shoot Football (Soccer that is for our US friends) Rugby Union, Polo and Ice...
