Hi everyone, i finally got to change my camera and upgrade to a DSLR. First I thought my choiche would have been between a Canon and a Nikon, and then I found out that Canon does not perform very well in the Mid-Entry Level. And I also found out that Pentax, with, K-30 outperforms over other competitors in its price range. So (I thought) I had to chose between Pentax K-30 and D5200 (that was actually my first choice). When asking to some more competent friends, though, turns out that there is...

Hi all, I'm considering my first dSLR and coming from a combination of a Nokia Lumia 920 phone (crazy good pics considering it's a phone) and an old Panasonic Lumix Z28 superzoom. *LOVE* the telephoto reach of the Z28, but I've never been entirely happy with the color it captures and it's not quite as versatile as I'd like. My primary uses for a new camera are: Landscape & Nature - lots of outdoor shots, water, clouds, etc. and hiking in the mountains Wildlife - this was the main reason I...
I've had a camera now for over a year, Pentax k-30. I'm looking to get a flash that I can use to give me a lot more options for lighting portraits and still life. But I know very little about them, what do other people find the most useful features on their flashes, are there any features that are a must have? I'd like something that can be used both on camera and off camera, give me your best suggestions and why Cheers.

I just inherited two lenses and have no DSLR body on which to put them. The only camera body I have is an old Pentax SLR (on which these don't fit) and although that is nice when I want to shoot film, I've decided that the time has come to buy a DSLR on which these lenses fit. These are the lenses: Auto Rikenon 1:2 f=50mm Kenlock SS Auto 1:2.8/28 52mm That's all the information which is written on them, which as you can probably tell, I don't really understand. Therefore, I would love it if...
I have owned a Samsung GX20 for 5 years. Bought at an airport VAT free for just over £300 in 2009. I have put about 10,000 shots on it and it has never let me down. Prices for the GX 20 have now fallen just below the £200 mark. So before they drop too far, i want to up grade. My choice of models are in the heading. A lot of my photography is wildlife, pets, landscapes and nightime astra photography. I have a selection of lenses both auto and manual, having owned Pentax cameras since my first...
Sorry if this has been asked before. I have a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 APO DG EX Lens - It is the non macro version. I have the ability to buy a 2nd hand Sigma 2x DG EX teleconverter. I just wanted to know if it will be compatible. I have heard it is not compatible with the new macro version of the lens. Any help will be really appreciated. Anthony PS = I am using a K30

I own a K-30 and have the kit lens 18-55mm WR it works well and coupled with the legacy primes I have gives me a good choice of focal length to use. I own 50mm f1.7, 135mm f2.8 and 200mm primes. Unfortunately I have recently managed to put a good scratch on the 200mm and given the focusing ring has stared to slip that lens is basically unusable now. So what I'd like are suggestions for a zoom lens to cover the 55mm+ range going up to at least 200, but if I can get more range without losing...
