I just bought the Sigma 18-50 (2.8/4.5) [https://www.sigmaphoto.com/18-50mm-f28-45-dc-os-hsm] to use it with my good ol’ trusty Pentax K10D. Both the lens and body are stabilized, so te question es: should I turn off the IS on the body and rely on the system built into the lens or the other way around? Thanks!
Do you know a good Android app that can trigger the shutter of my Pentax K10D on bulb mode? So far the only apps that seem to work (kind of) are Camera IR Remote (shoots on whatever speed the camera is on and that's it) and DSLR Remote (same result). Those apps (and every other one on the app store for that matter) are supposed to work with my Pentax and every single camera with a IR sensor, but I've tried them on the K10D, my Olympus EM5 and a Canon XSi and got the same results. I have a...
Is the Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM fully compatible with the Pentax K10D? According to the Sigma support website It works just fine, but they tell you that "Please update the firmware of the camera to the newest version before using this product". The thing is, I found a few blogs and forums where users say the lens doesn't get along all that well with the K10D. I have a few primes, but I want a "carry everywhere-all purpose lens" that's actually a little better than the kit the K10D...
I'm taking a trip to the countryside to take some astrophotography pictures with an old manual lens from my first camera: a Super Takumar 50mm f 1,4 (M42 mount). I've used it before with an Olympus EM5 and the Orion constellation fits perfectly on a 100mm equivalent. I'll shoot with that camera and my good old trusty Pentax K10D. So, here's the question: I know the focal lenght of the lens changes with the sensor size, but what about the distance scale? In short, if I put the focus on the...
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...
Hello guys, I am new to dslr and these photography stuffs. I just bought Nikon D5600 camera(Used Pentax K10D before). I have a Sigma 70-300mm Apo DG lens, and I tried to mount it on d5600 but it won't mount.I am afraid to force mount it. How do I know if the Sigma lens is compatible to d5600?I read some reviews and I found out that sigma 70-300 and nikon d5600 is compatible. Thank you :D

I'want to to buy an old (in technology years) Pentax DSLR to use my old M42 50mm Super Takumar (it's from a Spotmatic, the very first camera I ever had). I only need one dial to control the shutter speed, as I'll control the aperture right from the lens. I was thinking something along the lines of the "old cheap reliable workhorse", maybe a Kr or Kx. Is there any limitation regardless metering, or something? I already have a high end Pentax, but I want the "new-old one" to be attached to the...
I got an old set of manual extension tubes and wanted to give them a try in combination with my Samyang 85/1.4 - which is a great lens, but can only focus down to 1 m. Wanted to have a look at its hidden macro capabilities ... :) So I got my manual PK extension tubes out; they have both the aperture control lever (for stopping down the aperture during exposure and for DOF preview) and the aperture simulator - not used on the digital DSLR line. But I had to discover that you can't stop down...
