Thats so true, also you can rent any lens you like for Canon and nikon, for pentax its even hard to buy one.

Dont get me wrong guys. K10D is great camera for hobbyist, but just cant stand in pro challange
K10 was not design for that. Its nice, some of the futures almost reach other brands so pentax users don't feel so much behinde.

Ben no offense, but i bet you would not take k10 for fashion week. In studio when you work on "artsy" project. You have time and lot of space K10 can do the job, sure.
But other can do its faster and achieve better results.

I shoot yesterday side by side with D300 and K10d. My k10d with tamron 28-75 f2.8 and couple shoots with 50 mm f1.4. D300 had sigma 24-70 f/2.8 and 50 mm f/1.8.

Out of focus pictures mentioned before......... its just different way of focusing, its operator fault.
On like 200 pictures i took with D300, first 3-4 frames where out of focus but that was totally my fault. D300 shutter button is more sensitive then my k10. It take me couple minutes to just to it.

There was couple thing that drive me crazy with my K10D after yesterday.
I was not able to work with my strobes in small space , D300 can. On D300 i could rise sync speed, save some stops and shoot almost wide open.
In ambient light .I was not able to get a shoot when D300 can. Simply i cannot focus and D300 can with AF assist beam turned off (!). (well we all know that)

But something more, speed. Hist 6 fps is a huge difference compared to 3 fps, really huge.
His bracketing was smooth, when mine not.

I don't know how good K20d will be, but there is one thing. Availability
D300 is now, K20D 4 more months to go................
Of course there is large gape in prices but i think D300 is worth money you pay.

Im divided now

really?
How about if you try to shot using studio lights in limited space and keep small DOF under f4? When you cant move your flashes away, power setting is at min. and you dont have ND filters?

eBay Store Gadget Infinity: Search results for trigger.

You have to find adapter matching your flash.

But why not start from pentax wireless system? Its works fine when you dont have others photographers around and offer p-ttl.

Your other option is :
- elichrome skyports
- pocket wizards

and couple other brands of wireless triggers

Here is my entry.
MY understanding was its contest for pictures taken during this contest week?

Anyway , it was rainy this friday and not much to do, so we went to store pick up flowers for 14$, shower curtain for 3$.




Setup:
K10D hand held crappy ebay wireless trigger on my sigma flash, secound flash ABR800 + moon unit (sort of octagon softbox).
As background white shower liner, sigma flash set to fill, 1/2 power like 3 ft away. Secound light left as hig and far as i could (8 ft celling in my apartment). Model ( hihihi, sounds better then wife ;) )placed 1 ft from background. I was like 6 -7 ft from her. Everything in 8 x10 space.\

oh, and some PS work to smooth/fix skin, and clean background. Little color manipulation

How did you make them work with 1/200 on k10d? i can't pass 1/125
At 1/160 1/4th of frame is black.
I cant make them work in any mode over 180

Personally i think its a piece of c*** after todays battle with hot shoe version. I just can't put them any father then 10 ft away from trigger
I'm trowing them away next week

Kemal they will work with AB's, both hot shoe and studio version

I hate to read all this voices who expect 1Dmk3 for 1500$ price range.
After reading reviews, looking at photos i think , as for cheap DSLR i think pentax did good. Not excellent/ground braking , but good.
But there is noone who can please everyoone.Of course some more improvement like faster sync speed, faster fps (witch i use only ocasional), faster AF would be nice. But i can live without it, as i did till now. Also i dont belive they dont tweak them for K20D.
IQ as ISO100-200 is what convince me to K10D combined with ergonomy of the body.
IQ of K20D is that what is most importand for me, thats why im going to get one as soon as they will be avilible.

Tamron 70-200 f2.8, anyone have it allready?

Is there lucky man who have it already?

I thinking about buying this lens and pair it with teleconverter. Here is my dilemma, x1.4 or x2. or mby both.
Should i stick to tamron teleconverter or i can use any of pentax telephoto converters for it?.
As for my primary use 70-200 will be used to "shoot" people (that why i need it for good DOF control), secondary airshows (200mm is little short for that, im not sure it will work well with x2) or mby stick to other telephoto lens like bigmo?

your thoughts guys?
