Same thing happened to me. If you search just on the flash, the site says it is "discontinued". I suspect they ran out of stock... This is probably a deal breaker for me.

Importing K5ii DNGs into iPhoto

I had a problem with PEF files and Lightroom for the K5iis. Come to find out adobe had to do some updates for the K5ii/iis to be able to read the PEF file. Maybe the same applies here?

Note: Until the LR 4.3 release was available, I changed the format to DNG in the camera, and that worked fine.

Certainly all an "interesting" discussion!

All I know is I took the plunge and bought the K5iis, and took pictures at two church low-light events using the 31mm, 77mm, and a Tamron 70-200mm, at ISO 800-6400, and was VERY pleased with the results, considering IQ, noise, etc. I saw no moire, and all people did wear clothes...

I just got my K5IIs and discovered the same thing. What do you mean Adam by a candidate version? Is this something we can access?

Am I going to run into compatibility issues with CS5, and having a RAW plugin that works with both CS5 and LR4?

Choices, choices....43mm ltd or 77mm ltd

I have the 31, 43, and 77mm - they are about all I use. For a walkaround, I would definitely go with the 43mm (sometimes it is even a little too close, and I go to the 31).

Once you have it, I bet you will be saving for the others!

LBA 2011: what did you buy/keep in 2011?

Interesting scanning all the purchases and sales (hire and fire).

Selling has not yet entered my vocabulary (I still have the K100D and the K10D)!!

I only bought the 43mm, to go with the 31, 50, and 77mm primes. I did not really plan to become a "prime lover", but I am very happy with one, and then buy another, and another, and another!

LR3, CS5, and Raw+JPEG

Hi Miquel,

Thanks - this helps....

No where in this flow am I given the option to edit the picture with the adobe raw editorer (that I am aware of). What work has LR done already here, and how can I get the option to do the raw edits myself if I so chose?

LR3, CS5, and Raw+JPEG
Posted By krs
Replies: 3

As a bit of a LR/CS5 beginner, I recently shot some pictures as RAW+JPEG. I then loaded them into LR3. In LR3, it seems to know that I shot RAW+JPEG, but it is not clear which I am viewing/editing. If I then launch into CS5, I go straight into the normal CS5 editor, not the raw editor. If I edit the raw file directly from the file, adobe launches the raw editor first.

My questions are then as follows:

1. In LR3, what am I really editing - the jpeg or the raw file?
2. Similarly, which am I editing if I then launch into CS5?
3. If the raw file, why am I not first placed in the raw editor in CS5.
4. Can I tell LR or CS5 to edit either the jpeg or the raw file?

Note: If I shoot just raw or just jpeg, I think it operates as would be expected!

Any general insights or pointers would also be appreciated!

I have had reasonable success with the FA 50mm with indoor martial arts competitions. I have also used the Tamron 70-200 F/2.8 and was having trouble. I later realized the aperture was going sticky, and have since sent it in for repair.

Shooting manual focus I assume is an option too....

Thanks for the insights! I have the FA 31mm and like it very much. The 77mm is on my list for next year, but if it looked like it was going away, I would buy it now!

I suppose I could pretend it is going away ....

Hi Adam,

I did find that thread as well, with references to Sigma lenses, but I cannot find the actual profiles. They did not come with LR 3.0 that I have, they are not on the downloader, and I see no links to the profiles themselves...

I am sure I am missing something...??
