I've got some money from my photos, so FF with 21-25Mpix will be fine for bigger prints, crops, details, retouching, etc..

I wrote to support pentaximaging, but it's 10 days ago and still no answer :-( Problem is, it sometimes happens without flash too, ie. I tried it in low light Av mode f 2.8, iso was auto (2500) and shutter speed was 1/400 .. same problem low fps ..

Hi,

I've got issue with my K-7. When I set FPS at hi, it works fine at 5.2FPS. When I mount flash on K-7 even if the flash is turned off, only mounted, FPS became slower to 3 or less in modes Av, Tv, Sv, P. In M mode is everything ok = 5.2 FPS.

Flash is mounted only, not switched on. Same problem in AF.S and MF (in af.c i understand, it needs time to focus)

Flash is metz 58 af-1, somebody tested it with same results with some sigma flash ..

Thx for any help

Did you try to set AF correction to all lenses to -10 and then tune it for every lens you have? I had big FF with K-7, and setting value to -10 with FA 50 1.4 didn't help me. So I set -10 for all lenses and -7 for FA 50 1.4 and looks it works now ..

Still blind? Open your eyes man .. I wrote only "why it is plastic, why not magnesium as body", is it bad to ask?

1/180 is deal breaker for some peple . there is a bigger thread about x-sync.

I gave money to pentax, so I'll write what I want .. and you can reply anything here .. it's your choice...

Peace man...

Troll? Come on .

I guess you are a family photos shooter, so you don't need even K-m. Try any compact.

Be decent...

Hi,

does anybody know if this corrections for DA & D-FA lenses are "real time"? I mean if I can set corrections in menu & every files (RAW & JPEG) will be affected or it is only choice if I'll develop image in camera for JPEG or TIFF output?

There are no gorillas here AFAIK :) But I prefer size of K20D. And days of film cameras? We don't live in past .. It's far away ..

1/180 is usable, but for some people (like me) is 1/250 better .. that's all. (Entry level DSLRs from C & N got it, so why not pentax in semi-pro?)

On other side, I tried cheap radio triggers with k10d & k20d and it was not usable. There was a black strip at 1/160 & 1/180. Only 1/125 and longer was ok. I tried 3 different K10D and one K20D. Problem remains. I tried same trigger on C 40D, 450D, N D300 ant there was no problem .. it works at 1/250 perfectly ....

RMabo: I'll stay with pentax, I'll probably buy new K-7, and I'll hope that pentax will introduce PRO APS-C camera with 1/250 or maybe 1/500? :-) And with slightly bigger body?

Everything on new K-7 is cool, if it's AF speed & accuracy is really improved.

I am missing some kind of cropped RAW . maybe 6-8Mpix .. I guess that's not hard to implement?

I feel K-7 small with attached grip .. sry .. but k10d/20d with grip is min size I'll probably accept. But I can't say yet .. I've no K-7 in my hands.

1/8000 HSS is nice, but only if I use another HSS system flash. And power of HSS is small. Today's solution is shorter x-sync. When you wanna shoot moving objects (like sport etc.) with external lights (wchich could be 20 meteres away) you have to use radio trigger and when something is moving, it's better 1/250 then 1/180

Pentax cameras are very very good, but here is gap .. gap which can discourage many newcomers or people which already shoot with pentax...

Yes it is .. it will be the best DSLR from pentax. But pentax doesn't listening much people who shoots fashion. Or pentax will be only for landscape & macro photographers?

And what about solution for people like me, who wants bigger body? K10/20D is perfect size. New way of pentax is small bodies? If yes, I am running out.

I don't wanna say, that pentax is bad system, but I've other requirements which pentax is not giving me. I know there are few others like me.

But that cheap chinese radio triggers works directly with x-sync. How do you wanna with pentax shoot 1/250 wit 3 studio lights away from body? If you have solution write it!
