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...
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...
Hello, My name is Chris and this is my first post haha. 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...
