Hello Everyone,    I'm receiving my dad's K5 and am new to the Pentax world. I previously had a Sony A700 and A200. I am in need of a good general purpose lens and would like to know everyone's suggestions. I currently have a stock 18-55mm kit lens, and an old 50mm manual focus prime lens. I do a lot of rail fanning and landscape photography. Just trying to get something that would handle them both adequately until I can purchase a really nice lens. My price limit atm is 250. Thanks in...

I recently purchased a A330 body.  I really wanted a vertical battery grip for it.  But it seems even though Ownuser made one, they are just not available!  So the question is, and doing this on a budget (body under $250), which second body would be a good choice/matchup to get that would have a vertical battery grip for it? A200? A500?  Thanks for any input!-------------------------------Sony E SeriesA330 - 35-105 and 18-55Nex-318-55, 20mm, 60mm Sigma

My Sony A200 is using up battery, even when off. Around 2% every half hour.  If I go on a trip or leave it with the battery in over night, the batter drains completely. Very frustrating,  Any ideas,  Thanks,  Malky

Hi all. I was a A200 shooter and now just bought a A77II. I do have many problem with the AF. When i use my a200 with only center AF point. No matter how the background is, i can easily focus on the bird but not the background. However, for A77II, even i use center AF, 9 point AF (I can hold my center AF point at the bird body). All shoots goes to he background not the bird. Even with eagles with around 50m far, all shots dead. My af motor speed is high and my AF tracking time is 5. Did i do...

I hope this is the right place to pose these questions and seek advice. Looking for a camera to replace my well-used(and broken) A200, I am trying out a GX7, having chosen it over the K50. I'll use it to photograph grandchildren, landscapes, family, some wildlife and sports. I'm really drawn to the compactness of MFT, and the GX7 seems a good fit for me...except for one issue. The EVF is...disconcerting. After about a week with the GX7 and Panasonic 12-32mm lens, using both the evf and touch...

I heard a lot of praise for the CCD DSLRs such as the E-1, A350, and K100D Super. Some say they have better color rendering some say they have a "film-like look". I'm eager to actually experiment and test as to what these claims actually mean and so am thinking of getting a used 2nd hand DSLR with a CCD sensor. I am not considering Nikon because I do not have any Nikon glasses atm. The Sony CCD DSLRs such as the A350, A380, A390, appear to have the newest CCD (for a DSLR not including Leica...

Hello, Having spent a through days trawling the search functions and still being a little unsure I thought I would stick a question post up. I'm an amateur interested birding / wildlife, portrait, band photography (so lowlight...) and landscape. At the moment I have the stock Sony 18-70mm F3.5-5.6, a Minolta 70-210mm F4 and a Minolta 28-135mm F4-4.5 I'd like a minolta prime to round of the collection and replace the Kit lens as I find the IQ/Colour/speed to be lacking.  For what I'm doing...

I recently had a small accident with my A200 where I was trying to get a shot low down and near the ground. I either jarred my arm or hit my leg but the result was that the camera slipped from my hands and hit the ground. It was only about a 1 foot drop if that but it was enough to kill the SuperSteady Shot and in turn also messed up the sensor position. I'm not hopeful of repairing it given that I've seen prices listing about £120 so I'm also considering newer models. The problem I have is...

I have been shooting with a Sony A200 since 2008 or so. Been using it for about 6 years now. I have the basic 18-55 kit lens, Sony 50-200 lens, Tokina 11-16 lens, Sony 1.8 35 mm, & the Sony 50mm 1.8. I enjoy using it quite a lot. It is reaching its age though. I'm going to guess that it has about +-60,000 actuations by now. I have been looking at the A77II & the A6000. Both of them look pretty awesome. Both of them have features that I want & features that I don't want. I'll be good with the...
