New KP

Just got a KP with battery grip and the free flash from Adorama. It arrived on Thursday and here is link to my first photos. Taken with the 55-300 PLM.

It will take some getting used to the new controls and figuring out how to customize it. First thing I did was set Fx1 to depth of field preview. It seems to focus better than my K3 especially with the 55-300 PLM.

Looking good there. Nice shooting.

There are some other places you can post those photos, like this one.

That is a great combination. The DA*300 also seems to focus a little faster on the KP for me, but I was comparing to a K-50 and not a K-3. Better accuracy too. Nice photos of the Titmouse.

Nice shots! To add more regarding the KP's AF, I noticed increased speed and accuracy with my screw-driven lenses also.
