Kim,

Congratulations on your new :) camera. I own a K-30 too (though its now on loan). I always try to keep the settings the same as much as possible with the 16 MP K cameras. One setting on the menu I always do is to make it remember its last place in the when the menu button is pressed. You can probably turn off the AF light assist on the K5ii (it's pretty good in the dark).

So what else are you planning to buy. Can I talk you into some non Pentax mirror-less ? :)

hi Jeff, Sell Kim the K5ii. He now has my Sigma 17-50. They need to be reunited :) Seriously, it's a good match considering the near silent shutter of the K5 family (vs the K30, K50) and the HSM of the Sigma. Very good for event photography.

Hi Kim,

Now that you got my Sigma 17-50. Maybe you can buy my K5iis. I've used all 3 variations. K5ii and K5iiS are pretty much on par with better autofocus than the K5. Between the two, since you have the limiteds, you will see some better sharpness with the K5iiS. Not by much though.

Incidentally, the K5ii that is now on sale here by Jeff was originally mine. I can vouch for the quality of that particular one.

Samy's Ricoh $100 rebate on S1, K-50 & S2

Thinking of pulling the trigger on this one (KS-1). Despite its quirkiness and handling issue, its advantage are size and weight. Better than the Kx which I sold long ago. The sensor as well is very good. I've tried it through the Sony A3000 which I use for my Pentax manual lenses.

$$200 is a very good price assuming no issues with the rebate. This is the concern I'm sure most have.

Just as Micro 4 3, 1 inch sensor will continue and flourish, APSC will go on. I think more and more users are going with dual approach - large format sensors for wide to normal and smaller sensors for telephoto extra reach. I would certainly try out full frame once the price goes down but would likely limit myself to the wide normal lenses.

Scenes from the garden. 08 at its widest. Straight JPEG, no PP. It performs well at close range.

Drop by and I could lend you the 08 for you S2000. Warning you though, you might now want to give it back. Might have to keep the Honda.

DA 55-300. You will have a lot of fun capturing people. If I had the 18-135, I would say that should be the one lens I will bring. But definitely, need telephoto reach more than wide.

Here's mine. Just did a clutch slave cylinder job so now its ready to go back from hibernation. All stock. Have it for 13 years now. Needs some TLC, cleaning and better pics. Amazing how PP on the pic makes it look clean and shiny. This pic was actually taken with a Pentax X-5 superzoom.

Hey, you did not tell me you had a Miata. I have one too. 1999, emerald green. Some mistake it for British Racing Green. A little bit neglected though. I blame photography.
