My ancient K100D was stolen and insurance has luckily replaced it with a brand new K30! However I can not get it to work like either the K100 or my K7: When using flash, either popup or the Metz 58 AF2 I have noticed the following issues (others I am sure) using the 18-55WR: Av consistently sets the shutter speed low. At 55mm shutter speed is 1/40 zooming out to 18 it drops to 1/15. Changing aperture or ISO does nothing to these shutterspeeds selected by the camera. With flash down, it...
I recently tried my Vivitar Series 1 28-90mm lens, purchased with a K-1000 in the early 1980s with my K-7. Not even the shutter release worked! When did this happen? Does it mean my hoarded lens is now good for nothing? Any comments? I expected manual focusing, maybe manual settings, but usability.--http://www.flickr.com/photos/julian_w/collections/72157622610009199/
Fellow Pentaxians,I recently sold my K-7 because I've been disappointed in its performance indoors and in low light when compared to my Canon S95 P&S. I never made the investment in fast zooms or primes, so I do know that I limited my K-7 quite a bit. Now that the K-5II is out with a high performing sensor, I'm thinking that I should see a tremendous improvement, especially since my plan would be to purchase the body only and a fast zoom or prime as my first lens (no more kit lens). Of...
I'm hoping to get some thoughts from those that have been using the OM-D as a primary camera or replacement for a DSLR. I have a Canon S95 P&S that does a terrific job indoors in low light but could definitely use something with more versatility and better performance beyond that which my P&S can offer. In fact, in preparation for my next camera purchase, I just sold my K-7, mainly because I wasn't impressed with its low light, high ISO performance when compared to my P&S. I'm thinking that I...
I have 7 lenses and K-5IIs. One of them (Tamron 17-50/2.8) requires more than 10 points of autofocus correction. Is there way to use debug menu? I used it for K100D and K-7.If I change AF in debug menu will it be active for all lenses or for mounted lens?

I'm currently contemplating the idea of switching over from my Pentax K7 for making short mini documentaries to something that can record higher quality video (let's say, BBC HD minimum standards). I also have a handful of pentax lenses and I would be very sad if I had to get rid of them - but I read that there are adaptors for the NEX and GH.If you were in my boat which camera would you choose if you could pick between the NEX-6, NEX-7, or GH3, and why?From what I've read online it seems the...
Hey everyone. So my first camera was a Pentax k-7, which I got after much research. It was stolen from me a few weeks ago. I want to get a new camera before my upcoming trip, so I need to decide relatively soon. I need help deciding what I should get. My budget is around $1,000, preferably less than that. Ive been looking at the Canon t4i kit that comes with a 18-135 mm STM lens. I've always liked how canons colors looked. Another camera ive looked at is the pentax k-5 II, which is a little...
