But, I meant it as a compliment!
Yep, and normally I'd be pleased with that logic...but not with my K5IIs! I truly love it, the K1 had better be as good!

I chanced remounting the Bigma this morning, had to see if it still works, been really worrying me.

The camera works in MF only and with no aperture control, but other functions like ISO, speed and such seem OK.

Have to shoot wide open 6.3, but that is not bad on the Bigma anyhow. This can hold me until the K1 arrives and the K5IIs goes to the shop for repair.





The Bigma appears to be undamaged, which takes a load off my mind!

Regards! ...and don't lose confidence in me.....I'll be working a scam on Mrs Rupert again in the future......you can count on it! I just didn't do it this time!

For the record - it never once crossed my mind that the K5iis had been murdered...

until now. LOL

Well, rest assured it was not attempted murder! In particular with the Bigma mounted on it at the time of the crash! That would only make sense if I was going for the K1 and 150-450 all at once......I'm a lot craftier than that! You don't want to push too hard and fast, and end up with nothing.

The 150-450 can come later when Mrs Rupert starts asking why a "Pro" like me with a new Pentax Pro camera still gets lousy shots?.......got an answer ready! Bet you can guess it!

Best Regards!

I have the 150-450 + k5IIs.... Just a mess with AF at 420-450mm, even on static subjects... Now, i've the same question, k3 or k1 for wildlife & birding.... But the 150-450 really need one or the other, k5 generation can't manage effectively this lens

.and I am ashamed a couple of you thought so lowly of me! It's unimaginable you would suspect me of such a thing!
