Hi, how good is the Pentax K-50 with old Pentax K mount lens?

I want a discrete street camera, but I also want to upgrade my K50.  Thinking about a KP with a 21mm (tried the GR but I didn't like the ergonomics or 18mm).   Can one set it to live view, electronic shutter and keep the display off to conserve a little battery?  Then I would just zone focus with small aperture and fast shutter.

I'm running into a brick wall here; My K50 , set on high speed shutter will only do 2 pics per second, on low it does about 1 1/2. set to 1/6000 speed f8, iso 200. even manual focus, all enhancements off. What am I missing? where is the 6 frames per second? or is it broken?

Relatively speaking. I've had a desire to get into digital photography. I've investigated various Nikons and Olympuses (Olympi?), and etc. While I've tried to stay around $500, I just cannot seem to find a time when my money supply (short) and my desired camera models intersect. So, now I'm considering backing down my bar a bit, and looking at older tech. I really...really...want to do interchangeable lens options. In addition, I would like to get a system where, if in the future I get a...

Hello, I am very curious about this lens and I saw some users still use here. My question is whether it can still be used on a new generation Pentax DSLR or it is time to retire. I also found some versions of these lenses are produced in a short time and limited number because Sigma always do product renewal. I tried Pentax K-70 can not work at all but on Pentax K-50 does not matter. So, I want to know the last camera body you use? Thank you, RTogog

Hi.  Set the camera to B&W for the first time and was surprised that the DNG file was also in B&W.  Is this normal - and / or can it be adjusted so that the Jpeg is B&W and the RAW colour?  The camera did a nice job I have to admit, and I worked from the RAW file as (I think) it gives more leeway in the shadows, but I usually do my own conversion from raw which means I can do adjustments etc.   Kind of unexpected as I'd read elsewhere about people setting cameras to B&W so that they could use...

Hello Everybody. I'm experiencing a malfunction shooting with the couple in subject. Some as one picture of ten but up to one to three are "dark": I mean  that they are so underexposed that the image can be seen with difficulty. I tested either with random interval shots that in burst mode. It seems that a burst of ten shots with a 3 seconds interval has the maximum of underexposed images. A burst of ten with an interval of 10 seconds displays a unsuccessful of one (of ten) and one or two...

I have a k5 that seemed to miss focus a lot.  I came across a beal on a k50 I couldn't pass up on so bought that.  It seemed to focus better with the 18-55 WR.  This evening I was playing around (inside, low light) and was very disappointed in the image results.  I compared them to my small sensor compact xz-2.  The xz-2 looked better.  I tried manual focus on the k50 and was able to get much better shots.   Is the focus control, or logic, in the lens or the camera body? I've been thinking...
