My current K200D is just like the first one I got years ago - very unreliable with autofocus. Back in the day I was loaned a K7 while my K200 was being checked over, and it could focus all of my lenses accurately. I am also happy that the K200 will pull ISO800 easily and cleanly for what I do - I'm assuming that the relatively noisy K7 will be at least as good and probably better. I'll probably also get another DA 16-45 to go with it, and an F or FA50 Thanks Trevor G
I've been using Pentax since 2008 more or less and so far I've owned six models (K10, K20, K7, K5 and K3 plus the MX1). I recently sold my K3 and bought a KP, which required some research, reading forums, reviews, etc. It's funny because even when the camera has good reviews and excellent IQ, Pentax users seem to dislike it. I mean, there are many negative comments regarding the size and capability, but even when I haven't received the camera yet, the test images I see online are superb. My...
Hi all, I've recently invested in a K-1 after my K-7 started to show it's age a little. I have a AF540 FGZ which I use to fire my stobe's for my portable studio work, but I have had one blow on me in the past which resulted in an interesting event using the pop-up on the K-7 and a flyer for the evening. As the K-1 has no pop-up I am looking to add a little redundancy to my kit so I'm looking for a cheap alternative to use just in case the AF540 FGZ dies on me. It is unlikely to ever be used...
I have just downloaded and installed DCU 5.6.1. I usually develop my RAW photos with Lightroom, but from time to time I also use DCU. To my surprise, it seems that Ricoh-Pentax has apparently dropped PEF support, as I cannot open PEF files from my former *ist DS or K10D with this updated version of their software. Now I use DNG on my K-7 and K-S2 bodies, but even some PEF shots taken with the K-7 cannot be open with DCU 5.6.1 Has Ricoh dropped PEF support intentionally or is it a bug? Or...

I have the Pentax K-1 with which I am most pleased with the exception of the performance of the Image Synch app. I have read that the Live View function works only on certain iterations of the Android OS. I am rather ignorant on the various operating systems so any help on what version of the Android OS gives me full functionality on the Image Synch app would be appreciated. I have something about a version 5. I s that the same Lollipop 5? I'm in the dark. Help!
I am expecting my new to me K5 to arrive any day now. I have been coveting Pentax cameras from the time K7 came. I like a good pentaprism, IBIS and the Pentax cameras give more adjustability than I could imagine. But reading the manual I discovered that I can not use wireleslly the AF540FGZ in HSS mode with the built-in flash as commander. That is a disappointment because that is the way I am used to use external flashes. The manual says I must mount another AF540FGZ or AF360FGZ on the K5 to...
Hi all, I've been reading some interesting articles about finding stolen cameras including searching for images that contain the serial number of your camera or your name in the "photographer" fields of the EXIF or IPTC data. Using ACDSee I am not seeing any entry in the field for serial number for my Pentax K3 or K3 II. I downloaded PhotoME and that seems to agree that one of my raw DNG files does indeed not contain a serial number. Can this be right? I heard that the K7 does indeed record...
