Somehow it's impossible to get a new long range tele zoom for K-Mount in Germany - besides the Pentax DFA 150-450 which unfortunately is too expensive for me. Neither Sigma nor Tamron do sell them here; Sigma lists the current 150-500 available for Pentax mount on their German website, but don't offer this version even in their own (german) online shop. So in search for a more affordable long range alternative to the DFA 150-450 I've now bought a used Sigma 50-500 - the beloved Bigma - which...
Hello all, I'm having an issue with my NX30 when I use an adapted lens on it (I use Canon FDs & Pentak K-Mounts). The camera will meter correctly at first, but after a couple of shots (or a short period of inactivity), it will not meter correctly and I'll get an underexposed shot. I then have to turn the camera off, and then back on again to get the camera to meter correctly again. I usually shoot in manual mode with AUTO ISO. I tend to see this more when using "Center-weighted" vs...
A little while ago I was using the rear screen in the extended position when the screen flickered, then banded with dark lines, then went out. Now when I try to use it, it will power up, back lighting and all, but will not display anything. No photos, menu information, nothing. I looked up some information on replacing screens, but I don't think the symptoms indicated a bad screen, maybe just a connector. I have a shoot next week in North China so I really don't want to mess around getting it...

Does anybody know about the camera equipment on the New Horizons space probe? How did they manage to get images in focus? It may be a stupid question, but sometimes it is easy to miss focus even here on earth :). And near Pluto, you need high aperture value and I assume incredible short shutter speeds and don t have sufficient light. Not exactly a wedding job.
Hello folks! I own a KM 17-35D as my common UWA and I'm thinking to take a Minolta 24 2.8 RS for landscape and interior uses. I'm sure that some if not many of you had the opportunity to "play" with both and so, in a word, does it worth the extra bucks or I should not expect much better results with the M24 2.8 than I can get with the KM 17-35 at 24mm? Assuming that it's not for the gain on the apperture as I shot mostly at f8-f11. Thank you all :)

I debated about whether to post this in the Sony or KM forum, in the end I decided on the Sony forum because I suspect I'd have more chance of finding the right answer here. I want to set up a cheapo studio at home for photographing items for our small business. Nothing too fancy or expensive, but there are a couple of pitfalls I don't want to fall in to. I'm currently (still) using my KM 7D body, and that will continue to be used for the time being. At some point I am sure that I will...

I am a K-30 and K-M user and am thinking of upgrading. The K-S2 seems to be a feasible choice but the current price of the K-5 iis is quite attractive compared to the K-S2. I've heard that the K-5 IIs has better sharpness than the K-30 due to the lacking of the low pass filter. Also high ISO performance is better as well. I've held the K-5 original before and have to say the overall construction of the body is way better than the K-30, but heavier as well. The K-S2 obviously has all the...

Could I have some tripod/head recommendations from the forum regarding what is sturdy enough for 2kg camera + lens and at the same time light enough to carry a 1000 yards (0.9 km) or so? It also has to be tall enough to bring the camera to my eye level (6ft) - this lens requires careful focusing. The problem I'm trying to solve is rotational vibration in my current setup. The tripod is a bit light for this camera and lens as it is rated at 11lbs but ball head is rated for 40lbs and should be...
