The image below is straight out of my K-30 except for straightening it using the DA 18-55 WR kit lens. Please judge if this lens is performing as it should. Mostly interested in sharpness/resolution, but other considerations are also important. This image responded very nicely to post processing. Would the 18-135mm WR or the 16-85mm WR really be much better? Thanks, Dan --Christian Amateur PhotographerChoose life's involvements carefully with an eye toward eternity.
Is it harmful to the camera lens for the camera to sit on it ? Some cases including holster types cause the camera to rest on it's lens. I have a Pentax K-30 with the 18-55mm WR lens. Seems that the everyday up-down and side to side movement of the case while walking would cause harm to the lens. I am sure there are those that have always done this without harm. I am interested in those persons comments, but especially those presenting evidence of the potential harm or lack of it to my lens....
Does anyone have a white K-50 or K-30? I just bought a K-3 and was planning to keep my K-x as a second body. But since I needed a couple of WR lenses for rainy-day shooting, I think I've decided to sell the K-x and just get the WR lenses in a kit with the K-50. Comes out to be about the same net cost, and I get a new camera for the backup. Anyway, I really like the looks of the white K-50, and that kit is only $20 more than the black. But I have two questions first: Does the white part of...
Hello all, I'm a wildlife researcher working in Madagascar and I'm going over for my second field season in a month. I currently have a Pentax K30 camera and three lenses: A Pentax DA 300mm f/4 for lemur shots A Tamron 90mm f/2.8 for macro shots (insects and herps) A (little-used) Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 for landscape shots I'm pretty sure that I can do rather well with this set-up, but I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions for lenses. I do think I want to focus more on...

I just bought a brand new HD DA21 f3.2 limited to use on my K30with firmware 1.05 (=latest version, which is announced by Pentax-Ricoh for better AF with HD limited lenses). I usually shoot JPEG or RAW+JPEG, and I use LR5 for PP. The lens works fine and I think I will like it, but, wether in LR5 or in Silkypix developer studio (the latest version of Ricoh-Pentax bundled software), the exif data of pictures show exif version (0230), firmware version, focal length and aperture and other exif...

Hello to you all, My wife and I are planning a trip to India in February 2016. We love India, and it will be my fourth trip in this wonderful country, but it will be our first journey with some wildlife photography in mind. We’ll visit North India : Rajhastan, Taj Mahal, and we plan to spend some days in national parks : 4-5 days in Corbett for sure, and maybe Keoladeo with birds in mind or Ranthambore for tigers. What kind of lenses would you advise us to take ? We already have bodies :...
Sorry, I know I've asked about this sort of thing in the past. But I keep waiting and waiting, and I'm finding these tempting offers for lenses, but NOT the exact one that I "think" I should get.... The background: I was looking for a 70-200 F2.8 lens, which I will use primarily for my kids' outdoor sports - tennis and Ultimate Frisbee. I was shooting a K30, with a Sigma 18-250, mostly because it's HSM, i.e., my only lens with the motor in the lens; my Pentax 55-300 and Sigma 50-500 are both...
