I have a problem

Hello, I am a new user and registered because I have a problem I want help solving. I have a K-5 with a bunch of juicy lenses, and am working on getting some talent to match.

Welcome aboard! You have questions? We have answers! Some are even rational. So, what's your problem? [Note: That isn't a cue for an ELIZA-like AI script. No Turing Tests here.]

BTW talent is highly overrated. Practice practice practice, and study, and more practice, that's how to gain expertise. The story is told of JS Bach playing one of his magnificent keyboard pieces. Afterward, a member of the audience rushed up and gushed, "Oh maestro, you play so wonderfully! You are so talented!" Bach snorted and replied, "Look, if you'd been keyboarding for 50 years, YOU would sound good too!"

Photography can be like that. Talent helps. Work helps more. Cheers!

Thanks very much! I have been practicing, and I posted another thread about my little problem.

I just ordered a new lens to practice with. It has a aperture wide enough to toss a dog through, and that clunky look that only comes from being out of style for a few decades. It should help me learn focus.

Sounds great! What is the lens?

Oh yeah, the K50/1.2 will keep you busy for awhile! That's about my best lens, awesome at every aperture. Don't forget to use a hood. Have fun!

I have the 43 limited, so I doubt it will be my 'best' lens, but if it is, all the better!

Welcome to the forum, Darren 8306. I haven't had the problem you posted, but the new memory card seems like a good idea. All the best with that.
The 50/1.2 is fast - will love to see some of the photos it takes.

I hope I am up to the 'speed'

I will certainly post some images as soon as I get done slurping up some local photons with it.
