I moved to Qatar about a year ago to work as a photojournalist for a small government agency, which was a huge change for me since I'd spent the three years prior doing it for the U.S. Army. When I got here I didn't know what to expect and eventually settled in the best I could. One weekend, a local friend took me out into the desert for a camping trip by the Arabian Sea and on our way out there we stopped at what used to be an abandoned military installation. I took out my Q, which is perfect for this type of stuff, and started shooting around until I found this wall. The textures were perfect and the sun gave it this orange glow that just amazed me. It looked quintessential of that moment, the area surrounded it and I suppose of my time there at the time. So anyhow, I thought I'd share that with you.

P.S. I know that we were supposed to post a link to the camera from Adorama, but it seems like the no longer sell the original Pentax Q model so I can't.

The K-5o doesn't have a stereo mic jack, correct?

Thanks for the idea! That is probably some of the best advice I've seen yet.

Right now, I have two zooms and I'm not sure if I will get another anytime soon. I own the 16-50 2.8 as well as the 50-135 2.8 and I love both of them. Like I said previously I was looking for something to walk around with however that wasn't so imposing as a zoom.

Good to know, thanks for the insight on that. I will be comparing the FA28 and then the 21 LTD over the next couple months while I wait to save up some money haha.

And I think that is why I want to get that. I want something I put on the camera and take out without feeling constricted. I want something light and compact, but able to handle a "normal," as you say, focal length.

How intrusive is the SWIVI viewfinder? Does it allow you to mount your K-01 on a tripod still?

I would lean more towards the 21 anyhow since it is a little more compact. Thanks to everyone for their input.

Yeah, I know that's a very open ended idea because a general purpose prime for one person is much different than for someone else. I will certainly look into the DA 21 or DA 15, which of those two are more compact?

First, my question. What, in your opinion, is a great general purpose prime lens?

Now for some background, I already own the SMC FA 50 1.4 as well as the DA 40 2.8 XS so I'm looking for something that is a little wider, but still allows me the ability to shoot with a more versatile depth of field, if that makes any sense. It will be going on my K-01 if that makes any difference as to what I can and can't use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Panoguy, that was great information. I know it'll make it bulkier and I don't mind. I carry around a 3Dx at work right now so weight and builk are not something I'm bothered by. Thanks again.

Because a camera would cost me much more and this, in theory, could work for now. I was going to purchase the k - 5 IIs, but I don't see the point in purchasing a whole other camera body. My current camera creates great images and I just wanted something to help during day shoots.

Hello all,

I've never actually posted before, but at this point I think I could use some help on an accessory I'm interested in purchasing. I purchased a K-01 about six months ago and it works great. However, I recently moved to Qatar and it's a bright desert environment creates a problem. I can't view the LCD screen very easily. So I'm looking at purchasing a view finder.

This is the one I'm looking at, any opinions?
