Was this shot with a K3?

I am a PROFESSIONAL! I took those pictures using the 18-135mm attached to a K-x. That camera is amazing, even better than a Nikon D40. It has the most amazing picture quality ever, more than any real pro could ever need. But it's all a moot point, since pros like me don't care about gear.

Anyways, I have a wedding to shoot now. My buddy hired me for $40 because I have a DSLR. Plus I get free food.

Hey, I can't be bothered with details, gotta go get some stitches thanks to that retina slicing sharpness. It missed my retina by about 3 feet or so.

But..... but.... but..... your K-X doesn't have 51,000 AF points, heck, it doesn't even have a focus indicator!

You don't need a focus indicator with an 18-135mm - it cuts out the scene with lazers. It's actually 100% lazer construction body.

Adam posted a link earlier for a special B&H is running where the 18-135 comes bundled with a field medic.

Thanks. I usually don't critique others' reviews.... but I have to say I feel like this review was even less objective than most...

I'm just calling out the OP when he says he's a professional, everybody knows that Pentax gears cannot be used as a professional tool.

It's APS-C, the system doesn't have an 85/f1.2, it' screw driven noise will distract any bride and its AF is too effing slow to capture anything that moves faster than a sloth. So, by rule Pentax will always be banned in professional events, especially weddings.

(Ricoh is trying to circumvent this rule by defacing everything Pentax and converting it into.... wait for it.... wait..... wait.....RICOH!!!!)

I just pre-ordered the new Pentax 10-600 f1.2 Limited. I went for the silver version. I also ordered a 49mm UV filter for it (just amazed about how compact it is).

Amazing coincidence. Whenever I open Pentax forums without logging in I get unsolicited advertisements in all posts. It seems this lens comes complete with laser eye surgery. I think I need it.

After I gave myself whiplash by performing the above test repeatedly, I noticed that the lens also weighs relatively little compared to my friend's FA* 600mm F4.
But if you want the steadiness of a FA*600 you can always attach a 15 pound weight to it....Small and light when you want, heavy when you need it to be heavy.

Why so many "Professional" photographers must live in trailer parks now becomes amazingly clear.....

My canera set up

Do you think I should get this len?

Uncle Harry asked me to take pictures at Susie's wedding. Here is my camera set up. Susie is a pretty sharp cookie and she likes my camera since it can change lens and use Audio-visual Settiing. And I can send them to her Instagram Wedding account right away, too!!
