I have a large amount of Pentax gear, including 3 bodies and 8-10 lenses, which I've used for years.  I also now have three Sony e-mount cameras, including the a6000, and 5 e-mount lenses.  I have an adapter to use the Pentax lenses on the Sony cameras, but can't seem to find out anything about using my Sony lenses on the Pentax cameras.  Can it be done?

Hey all, first post.  I'm looking to upgrade the 8-year-old K20D, and it's down to the KP and Nikon D7200. My main area of contention is the continuous AF tracking. I take pictures of my dogs and my friends dogs often, and the K20D can't keep up. The D7200 seems to be proven in its ability to track moving subjects well, and the test here illustrates its capabilities well, but I can't find anything very thorough about the KP. I've read the threads here and on Pentax Forums, tried numerous...

Hello Does anyone know the story behind different K20D grip design? Was the one with indentation for a specific market? Just curious if it was a prototype or a fewer number production. Majority of K20D has the straight finger grip area like this below. Thanks for any info that you may have.

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...

Hi. I have recently been trying to freshen up my knowledge on DSLRs. Though, I am a beginner eventhough I have had a Pentax K20d/K7 from they where new (about 10 years). I have basically gotten that since I am a beginner, it´s me and not the camera that is the fault. I would like to know where to find information of how to take good pictures of running dogs, playing dogs, dogs that are runnung towards me, etc. I have no point I can set the AF at so to say. I know that there is hugh...

Still... learning the K-1's UI... and settings... coming from K20D and K-01.  Q: The LV button switches the screen on and off. 1 user action. Is there a way to do the same for the info-settings screen? I mean, with one action on or off? For now i have to press info twice and then use 'the arrow keys' and select the 'off' or 'on' choice and press ok. (1st or 3rd from the left) Thx in advance. ;-) rgrds. Henk (K-1&01, K20D&DBG-2, GF2+14042X & LBA).

Not sure about the 15-30 and 24-70 yet. Used to have the Macro 35mm limited but it took a hard hit and broke!  If I get the new 3 FF lenses and the K-1, It will be more than $8000...

I think it might be handsome to start en new thread?  Something like: "PENTAX FullFrame". Just a suggestion :-) --;-) rgrds. Henk (K-01, K20D&DBG-2, GF2+14042X & LBA).

Since I shoot mostly in available light, I have not invested heavily in modern flash units. I have successfully used my trusty Vivitar 283 on my K20d via the hot shoe extension cord of the flash. I am hoping that might be an option with the K-1 as well, especially since it has no on board flash. Maybe someone here could tell from this information in the manual, whether or not my flash would be safe: "Caution• Flashes with the reversed polarity (the center contact on thehot shoe is minus)...
