Seling a K-5 on ebay and it didn't quite hit its reserve but I believe it to be worth more than even that.

Reserve was $325, asking $350. Best bet was below $300.

Selling with Sigma 50mm 2.8 Macro, the kit lens and charger and manual flash etc. All equipment good to great where the K-5 is in great condition as well as the Sigma.

Can I eek out $400 on some other site?

Sorry I searched for sale and sold forum but not many K-5 in last 1-2 years.

Just thought this was interesting, they havent changed their formula in years. Pentax should gain from this.

I am about to buy the 18-135 WR lens on Amazon from a seller with a great 4.8 rating for a great price ($401.) Seller: DavisMAX. But if it is not from Amazon directly and through a seller on there will I receive a full warranty or is this potentially a grey market item? I don't want to buy it through someone with a chance I will miss out on a warranty. Its roughly $100 less than B&H. Thank you.

K-5 For Astrophotography

Last summer I camped out at the lake on an island and took some amazing Milky Way pictures with my KX. This summer I have camped once and will again this weekend. These are the pictures I took with the K5 I recently purchased. Could one of you give me a bit of critique so that I may improve some of the technique this weekend?

I stacked these around 5-6 pictures plus a dark field image. I felt the noise was very noticable at ISO1600. I think my settings are anywhere from 10-30 second exposures. (Each picture had 5 matching shutter speed settings though.) I can't find them on my flickr but when I do I wll post them.

Thank you.

Here they are!

Did the same thing, got tired of waiting and with the D7100 supposedly not a giant leap in picture quality I figured now was the time for K5.

If April comes and goes with the same familiar silence will you guys worry?

I just bought a new K5 at $700 because of the price but I am still drawn to this board to see whats next.

You guys seem to have a healthy amount of camera shops. Around me we have large B+M stores like Best Buy and they arent selling Pentax. Target has got a great p+s collection though.

I bet they scrap the K-01 nametype and if they release a next gen itll be named different so not to bring up K-01 memories.

K-5IIs - when to buy?

I'm a few millimeters away from pulling it on a $729 K5, and I think I would spring for a ~$1000 K5IIs but no more than that. If the K3 doesn't beat the D7100 specs while being more than a couple hundred more i'm not touching it. It either has to be similarly priced or blow it out of the water and not that much more expensive.

He is obviously reading forums like this, probably even this thread. He has seen us cast doubt and now that we are showing skepticism (until he took it down) he probably faked the NDA story.

I just realized I am making too much of this, I need a break haha. I wont be back until Mar. 27 10am at the earliest.

Can we get like a list of actual usable digital FF lenses currently available and then call it a day. It seems each thread moves in circles about which lens currently is FF ready. I just don't understand how we have't actually determined this yet because it seems this topic starts up and repeats constantly.

I'm not angry it just seems to be like a never ending discussion. Ya know?

This is like the boy who cried wolf. When a real genuine thread with pictures, videos, physical samples, heck free K-3 samples, coupons and even cold hard cash embedded, I will yawn and go back to work without even a glance haha.

All very worrying, if we are months or years away from the K3 then it appears we are months or years away possibly for the next top end model. I for one have already waited so long already. If he was calling it the K1 I would be less nervous/skeptical because that fits with all of the other rumors. I just can't wait for April.

Are we expecting (guessing?) this so called K-3 to be near the D7100/70d or more like a 7dmkII?

I think it will be a big day for Pentax, I havent seen so many products go up on discount like this in a long time. Nothing like the week before a big reveal.

I just hope they release a FF finally so I can stop listening to the FF chatter.
