Hello and welcome,
You are definitely correct, this forum can greatly help you with information about your next possible camera. I just purchased a barely used K3ii from another forum member among many lenses. Do not hesitate to ask many questions. Good luck!

Welcome. Definitely would have been nice to have your old "good" glass. That's one reason why I love Pentax so much, backwards compatibility and I truly believe they have some of the best lenses ever made. You'll find a treasure trove of Pentax information on here. Also check out the marketplace, a lot of good deals on old and new glass. Enjoy!!

Figured I couldn't go wrong with Sandisk Extreme, especially since the new Extreme Plus was on a huge sale over the weekend.

New SD cards on K5ii

Thank you for the info. I figured the K5ii won't max out those speeds but never hurts have a fast card. I was just concerned about possible compatibility issues since the U3 cards were made after the K5ii came out.

When you say consistency do you mean much more consistent speeds when the camera is writing to the card?

There have been some new SD cards to come out since this topic was broached for the K5ii so I figure I'd ask it again. Has anyone had experience with UHS-1/U3 cards for the K5ii? I am thinking about buying a USH-1/U3 card ( for my "new to me" K5ii. Does the K5ii have any capability problems with the new USH-1/U3 cards? If so which cards would you recommend?

This is really good to hear as I have/use many of the same photo editing software you do and I have also been hesitant to upgrade to 10 even tho it's free. I will read the rest of the thread but any updates after using 10 for a while?

Telescope / Astronomy

I just purchased an Astromaster telescope as I want to get into some astronomy. Anyone here taken that up as a hobby? I live in a highly populated area of the Bay Area, CA so lighting is a huge problem but I would still like to try it out. Has anyone tried attaching their camera to their telescope for some planetary photography? How did it turn out?

The Pentax DA 10-17 FishEye does not give my photos a professional polish but it is so much fun to shoot with that I would purchase it immediately again. As for the professional polish it would be the F 28mm. I am on a budget so for the price I think you cannot beat the quality of the F 28mm.

Computer and software suggestions

I give a thumbs up for OnOne (Perfect Effects 8). I use that add on with Photoshop and I love it. Photoshop was expensive, although you can now do the Adobe Creative Cloud. I believe Adobe CC can go as low as 10$ per month and maybe even less if you choose only Photoshop or only Lightroom.

If you want to go the completely free route I would suggest GIMP. I have heard many good things about it and have tried it but definitely not all of the options.

As for a computer, you really can't go wrong with most run-of-the-mill computers. I use a PC so I cannot speak for Macs but any new PC will most likely have an i3, i4, or i5 processor and any of those will be fine for basic photo editing.

Hello. Welcome! I do not shoot either a K10D or Spotmatic (I have a Kx, upgrading to a K5 soon). I do however have some m42 lenses, they can be extremely sharp, but you came to the right place for information on both of those cameras. Enjoy!

K-7 or K-5

I think the K5 is definitely worth the extra $$ and I also think you can find one less than 200-300 more than a K7. A K5 sold on this website for $400 with very little shutter actuations. I will say though, you cannot go wrong either way because if you get the K7 (still a very good camera) you will be able to get a decent/good lens with the money you save over a K5. Its everyone personal preference whether the extra $$ is worth the extra features and it's only my opinion that a K5 is worth it. You should come up with a checklist or just ask yourself if a K7 plus a lens is better suited for you than a K5. Good luck with the decision.
