Hi there I own a Pentax K-7 and a 16-50mm f2.8 lens.I shoot mostly during while traveling in major European cities.I am looking to buy a telelens so that I 'll be able to capture details in urban (or natural) enviroment. Anyway, I found these two lenses (used) in the same price (about 130-140$): Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG Macro Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG Macro Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database and SMC Pentax-FA 100-300mm F4.7-5.8 SMC Pentax-FA 100-300mm F4.7-5.8...
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...

I am an avid -non- pro photographer, i have the knowledge but not the equipment :) I have recently picked up some Mamiya/Sekor equipment from an estate sale.

I realize the title is very vague and open-ended so I'll give a bit of background and refine it a bit below.I recently moved to Nikon (from Pentax), and currently own/use a D5100 body. I can't stand it. Coming from the K-7, it feels very cheap and plasticky, and digging through the menus and seemingly jumping through hoops to change settings I used to have instant access to is tedious and I just don't enjoy taking pictures as much as I used to. Additionally, focus is slow and seems to miss...
My new question(s) for the forum is regarding setting the focal length of lenses when specifically being used for macro and close-up work. The camera system is new to us, and we have chosen two lenses to use with a K-7 body, namely a Rokinon P 105mm macro, and a Tamron SP 35-80 zoom. The lens focal length setting is confusing for me since my wife will be shooting somewhere in the 1:5 - 1:1 reproduction range with the Rokinon, and judging by its length it seems to be more like a 150-180mm...
My wife just acquired a K-7 body used, and while we were inspecting it without a lens or battery in we notice a pronounced clunking sound when the camera is rotated on multiple axis. I am assuming that this is the image stabilizer rolling on bearings without power, but before we get to excited, could someone please tell us if this is normal for this model of Pentax body? When I did a search on noise it came up multiple times as an image quality result, I am looking for the physical...
