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...

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...
