Official K-5 Praising Thread

In my opinion, the ONLY serious weakness of a Pentax body is its weak AF :ugh:

From what I witnessed so far, Pentax seems to have gotten it right this time. We should all rejoice :D

My personal experience tells me: it's always easier to complain than to praise. While complains usually need not be supported by facts and actual observations, praise usually only comes after lots of convincing. This may explain why this thread is unlikely to catch up with the other until much much later. We just got to be patient :)

Well, I'll end my post with this comment: no matter how good a body K5 is, there will still be lots of complains about it. But let's be fair with Pentax. They have yet to come out with a complete piece of junk! In fact, recent effort like the Kx is nothing short of excellent ;)

Good work, Pentax :D

My friend has the SDM of his 50-135 replaced about 3 over months ago through Pentax's agent in Singapore :(

He paid only US$230 and that included shipping charges to and fro Singapore - Japan :ugh:

You should spend lesser I presume :)

DA* 50-135mm SDM Squeak

My friend's copy started squeaking more than a year ago :(

He has it checked by Pentax's service centre and was told it's initial sign of SDM failure :eek:

He was advised to keep using it until it failed or the squeaking becomes too annoying :hmm:

He had the SDM changed about 3 months ago though it doesn't fail. He just couldn't stand the squeaking noise which is getting louder by the day :ugh:

If you can still return your copy and try another, do it. I think some of these copies just kept going from one to another as actions weren't taken to remedy them :hmm:

Congratulations, Peter :D

Frankly, I love those K50/1.2 shots of yours and would certainly miss them if you go by the votes and sell it :ugh:

Well, glad that crisis is over ;)

Now, let's have more shots from you :p

Thank you very much, goubejp and borno :)

I just realised just how bad my technical knowledge on lenses is :ugh:

I don't seem to understand much of what both of you have written here. Really, it's my fault :o

Hope you don't mind putting them in even simpler language for me :o

Thank you very much :)

Hi everyone:

I just received my K500/4.5 and just couldn't get it to work :o

I purchased it from a dealer and he hasn't any idea how the lens operates :hmm:

Hoping those who have handled it before can share their experience here :p

I must admit. I don't know even know how to change the aperture setting :o

Then there's this free rotating ring in between the focusing ring and the tripod mount. What's that for please? :eek:

Finally, any tips on how to get the best out of this monster lens please? ;)

My sincere thanks to everyone for their contributions :)

I wouldn't recommend selling the 10-20 as 31 just isn't wide enough on APSC :)

Between the 43 and 50, there's always this temptation to keep a full set of the FA Ltds. More so when they are the silver ones :p

But, IMHO, between the 43 and 50, your main concerns should be: can you achieve what the 43 is best at with the 31 and can the K50/1.2 fullfil the role of the 43 and still give you more :hmm:

I too have them both. If necessary, I'm more likely to keep the K50/1.2. Chances are better that I can at least try to emulate the 43 with the 31, but there's absolutely nothing else except another f1.2 that can give you that magical 1.2 look ;)

Just my thoughts :ugh:

Yes, Zhou Yu. Kids are indeed wonderful subjects :)

In fact, a major part of the reason why I pick up photograpghy is because I wish to capture those special moments myself and my family spent with my daughter :p

That's why I'm so grateful to you for sharing those fabulous pictures of your kids with me :D

Thank you very much ;)

Hi Brian:

Please allow me to answer your question to Zhou Yu :ugh:

I did purchase a copy of the K135/2.5 from Zhou Yu, but that certainly isn't the copy you now have, as I still have Zhou's copy with me :)

But these pictures weren't taken with Zhou Yu's copy either :o

Following are pictures taken with the Porst 55/1.2, Pentax K50/1.2 and A50/1.2 at around the same time, under the same lighting conditions and wide open :)

I have removed all filters to ensure accuracy of their performances and they were all taken at their minimum focus distances :p

Please share your kind opinion on these lenses :ugh:

Ist picture with Porst, followed by the K then the A :D

Thank you very much ;)

70(80)-200mm users: what the focus range you use more often?
Posted By Just12hvFun

I have the 1st generation Sigma 70-200 :)

Before I have it, I was playing with my primes: 77, 100, 135, 150 and 200 :p

In a way, I already know what to expect from these focus ranges before I handle the 70-200 :hmm:

I love the 70-200 because I no longer need to change lenses out in the field within the range :D

Initially, I find myself changing focus length intentionally to achieve the effects I need and the Sigma 70-200 never disappoints ;)

Now, I just let my imagination flows and uses the full range of 70-200 at will :ugh:
