I have my camera set to AV and front edial to exp comp and rear to shutter speed.  When I use the front edial for exposure compensation the indicator in the view finder does not move from the center but I can see the adjustment on the lcd screen.  Is this normal and if so is there a way of setting up the camera so that I can see the adjustment in the view finder in AV mode?

I currently have a oly M4/3 but would like something a bit bigger to handle. been looking at K30 and couple from the Sony,nikon and canon range but as having a previous Pentax Dslr i thought give them a try again. i do have a couple of lenses for this so this is is my favour. would the K30 be good for motor sport? ill be getting a 4-500mm lens later. should i get the K30 for motor sport? weather sealed is also a bonus.

I am still shooting with my old trusty Pentax K-20D. I want to upgrade, to get sharper more precise photos. Ive read about KIIs and K-30D. Should I upgrade for the modest 2M.P. gain, or is the sensor much better , or not that big an improvement. Should I wait for the next Pentax in hopes for a better and faster sensor, good low light shooter , faster etc.

Not sure exactly how to ask this but hopefully I'll get the message across. I'm looking to buy my first prime to go with my K30.  I also have the 18-135 WR it came with and a Sigma 70-200 f2.8. I haven't really narrowed down the exact focal length I'm after and reading the threads here has really told me I need to experiment more by seeing what length I would find most useful. Be that as it may, and all other things being equal, is there any disadvantage to buying say a 50mm f1.4 over an f1.8...

After some consideration and reviews from this site and other, I think I want to buy the K-30.  Part of what appeals to me about the camera verses some comparably priced others is the weather resistant feature.  The Kit that I have found on most sites with the DA L 18-55 lens, which I understand is not weather resistant.  Do you think I should not get this kit and pay more to buy a WR 18-55 lens or do you think it does not matter as much with the lens?  I am probably more concerned about dust...

Is it any bigger or brighter?  Does it have a longer eye relief for eye glass wearers than the K20D?   --'I got a Pentax camera. I love to take a photograph, so mama don't take my Photoshop away.'

OK. So I have $800 dollars to spend on a camera and after searching & searching online I've decided that the Sony seems the best. My friend also owns one. But, seeing as the Sony A58 is coming out in a week or two I thought of buying it instead of the A57. My questions are what about lenses? Is a plastic lense mount bad? (saw people were complaining about the A58 having a plastic lense mount), should I go with the Sony A57/A58 or should I look into something else?  I have looked into a Nikon...

Hi! Honestly I have no clue what camera to buy. I only want to spend about $850 on a camera and might go a TAD bit higher if I must for a better quality camera. I do know that the lenses are more important than the body, and I also know that it is not just the camera but the person who takes the photo's. So no matter how good the camera may be, it's up to the person taking the photo to make it look amazing. I listed three camera's I've found in my price-range up in the title but am definitely...
