Hi, I'm a long time Pentax user (since film camera days). My first DSLR was the *istDS, and I've moved up through the K10, K20, and finally the K7 which I bought at B&H in May 2009. It's served me faithfully but I'm long overdue for an upgrade. Since 2009 my financial situation has gotten quite a bit worse, so I'm really trying to maximize camera for money spent. The first Pentax K3 looks to be pretty much exactly what I need for the best price. The price looks like it's dropped a bit (and...

Help. I dropped my K7 the other day and cracked the eyepiece lens quite badly. Does anyone know where I can source a replacement? No other obvious damage. These are tough cameras.

At this moment I’m shooting with a Pentax K-7/K10, which are both fine camera’s but I need an upgrade. De K-7 has recently past de 150.000 clicks and the front-wheel doesn’t work that well anymore (sometimes it gives random values for apertures, very annoying). And the K10 only has a global af-tuning system so I can’t quickly change lenses. A logical upgrade for me would be a K-5II(s), K-3 of K-3II. But I have doubt about sticking with Pentax because I want a full-frame sensor and better...

Hey guys, My father used to collect Pentax cameras and lenses until he finally moved on to digital cameras in the mid 2000s and I recently found half a dozen or so when digging through boxes in our attic. I'm far from knowledgable on cameras (I know what ISO, shutter speed etc mean but that's where it ends...) and understood that the old lenses can still be used although you'll have to manually focus them. The lenses I found were: 2 big zoom lenses (forgot to write down the type), both...

My lightweight set-up includes a K-5, K5IIs, 31mm, 77mm, 60-250mm and Ricoh GR. I would like the option of something wider but want to keep size and weight in keeping with the above. Some years ago I had the 15mm Ltd SMC on my K-7 and found it disappointing for a Ltd lens; only under ideal lighting, stopped down and with careful composition of a flat plane of focus did it render sharp, contrasty images. I know there were allegedly some quality control issues in the early days but I'm...

I have a Pentax ist DL and a K-x. As I live in Brazil it is very difficult to find Pentax equipment here. Now I have the opportunity of buy an used K-7 with 30,000 shutter actuations and 18-55WR for a good price. How does the K-7 compare with the K-x, AF, IQ, etc.? What about to change the ist DL or K-x by the K-7? Thanks, Danton

Hi everybody. I'm planning on upgrading my gear a bit. I do mostly landscape and love (a bit too much) wide angle so I think I need to change my photography habits to improve my skills. I'm going on holiday in Iceland this summer and to make sure I make the most of it need some new gear. The trip will be expensive enough so I know I won't be going back anytime soon, hence the need to have a good reliable photography gear. For now I Have: - K-7 (with rear dial occasionaly not responding for a...
