Repair KS-2 or buy a used KP

I had a K-30 that had aperture block failure. I upgrade to an early version KS-2 and it has been perfect. Then upgraded to the KP. Regardless of the aperture control solenoid, the KP is a definite upgrade to the KS-2. Autofocus and quieter shutter alone make it work the upgrade, at least in my opinion.

If budget won't allow, you can always try to gently file/lube the original solenoid. I did that on my K-30 and it's been fine since. Evidently not a permanent fix, but might get you by.

Considering the global economic situation, the K-new should be priced around $600 USD.

In my dreams at least!

Welcome to the KP club! For sports I use AF.C with the medium group setting (SELm I think, it's been a while since I set it up). I also use back button focus. I typically shoot outdoors, and the 55-300 PLM has worked great for me. I know there's a bunch more settings, but that's all I can think of off the top of my head.
