Ask a new question
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...
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 currently own the K10D and am looking with envy at the K-30 or K-50 models for their larger pixel count and much improved high iso performance, amongst other things. However I did wonder if the improved high iso was at the expense of base iso? I'd appreciate some feedback from users who have upgraded from the K10D. Besides being a bit bigger are the raw files just as clean at base iso? Are they just as maleable in post work?
