Hoping to upgrade to K5 II and broaden my kit. If I can afford just one accessory with this purchase should it be: 1) the battery grip. 2) DA 18-135 walkabout lens 3) DA 55-300, What I already have is K20 w/ DA 16-50 2.8, Sigma 70-200 2.8 (last pre-digital edition) 1.4 and 2x Sigma 2x teleconverters, DAF 100 2.8 macro, that equipment is what I normally carry and use. I also have the FA 24-90 from my film days, the DA 18-55 kit lens (never used becuase of the DA 16-50) and my original 50...
I have been reading through this forum and trying to get a grasp on the Pentax cameras. I was recently shopping for a new DSLR, I was a Canon guy that transitioned to m4/3. That format doesn't seem to be right for me. I have tried, but the same reasons that drove me to it, are driving me away from it. Anyways, I happened upon the Pentax K-30. The specs seem great, and the look of it is also very nice. I see that there are plenty of lenses, at least for me. So onto the questions. 1....
Hello, I would like to get feedback from other users who have upgraded from the K-5 to the K-5 II or II S. My experience with Pentax started in 2010, with the K7 and a few Limited lenses (43, 70, 15). I really like the built, ergonomy, view finder, WR, and, small size of the K7 and K5. Those qualities and the Limited are the reasons why I chose Pentax DSLR, and, why I keep using them. Now, I'm very happy with the results with the K-5 and those Limited lenses for travel photography (see Japan...
Hi, Reading as much as I can about these two cameras. It will be my first DSRL. I still own my Minolta Dinax 505si that I still use specially for slides photos and a compact Ricoh R8. I've collected quite good impressions on both cameras, maily to be used outside. Photography is still a hobby for me but I pretend to make a good investment in a camera that will allow me to make future progresses and enter into HDR. Can someone help me on this choice to be done? Thanks in advance. Edrisse
Hi.I'm new to DSLR and I am considering several for my first. I really like the Pentax WR since I want to be able to bring my camera in most kind of weather (even cold, I'm Norwegian). But I am unsure if the Pentaxes AF is quick enough to do sports, animals in flight etc. (will also do other kinds of photography, but what it to be able to do stuff like that too).I know I have to practice my aim and timing etc to get good action shots, but I would also like the camera to be able to handle it....
Hi.I am buying a DSLR, but I cannot make up my mind (not the first post I post here either). :pI will be shooting much handheld while hiking and like to take pictures of animals. I don't have any lenses or brand preference. I want the camera to be able to do some action (moving animals) and sports too, in addition to landscape/nature/architecture and well.. an all-round camera. :)I've found these "bundles" that will cost me the same, and wonder which I should go for (which of these will give...
Hi.Is the AF quick and precise enough on the K-30, K-5 and/or K-5 II with the 18-135WR kit lens good enough to get most pictures in-focus (as long as I don't miss completely)?I think I'd rather want the K-5 (because of price compared to the K-5 II and buffer size and LCD-screen compared to the K-30), but as I've understood it I might have to opt for the K-30 or the K-5 II instead (the latter is a tad out of my budget if I'm going for the 18-135 WR kit).Any thoughts or experiences?(I might get...
