What gear to take on Central Australia Trip?

Thanks @SandyHancock and @SilentStreet for your thoughtful suggestions & recommendations, they are very helpful as I plan our itinerary.
I am a little limited on the length of walking I can do (my cancer has left me a little on the fatigued and slow side), but I am determined to do and see as much as I can, still so much to do/see and potentially little time.
Hubby and I keep talking about doing this (and other trips) so, when the cancer returned (for a 3rd time) we said, bring it on, let's go buy a caravan and do what we said we'd love to do!!
I really appreciate ALL the advice and suggestions. You are all So great, I feel like I haven't been away from this place!!

I do have a Sigma 100-300mm F4.5-6.7 DL. Do you think that would do the job?



I agree, I think the Tamron large Tele is too heavy to cart around. The others are definitely on my take list.



I think that lens above was Meant to be Sigma 70-200, and no WR.
The WR lens I have is the kit lens that came with the K3, Pentax SMC DA 18- 55 3.5-5.6 AL WR.

I also have a Sigma EF-530 DG Super flash unit, will that be useful??

Thanks, I have a tripod and monopod, and was planning on taking both those. Somewhere, I have a wireless remote, might try and hunt that out!

I would love to add one of these, but I don't think I can afford it 😕

Thanks for your replies. I am liking the idea of K3/17-50 and K7/50 combo. The tamron 70-200 Is very heavy, but I do, but have a 70-200 3.5-5,6 WR kit lenses ��
As we are travelling in a van, I can leave the other suggested lenses and do the changes there if needed.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated, Thankyou.

Hi all,
I have been away from here for a long time (off fighting cancer, and related stuff!!), anyway, I have a question, not sure where I should ask it, so I figured I'd start here, and someone would move it if I am wrong. (Sorry!)

So, we are going on a caravanning trip to Uluru and surrounds, and I was wondering what gear I should take. 🤔

I have a: Pentax K3, Pentax K7, and even an old K100D kicking around.

For lenses I have:
Tamron 18- 50mm, 2.8
Tamron 70-200mm, 2.8
Tamron 90mm, 2.8, 1:1 macro, AF
Sigma DC 18-200, 3.5-6.3
Pentax FA 50mm, 1.4, SMC
Plus a multitude of old kit lenses lying around!!

What will I need?
Will these lenses do?
Should I leave some at home?
Do I really need a super wide angle to get good shots of Uluru?

Thankyou so much, for taking the time to read this post, and help me with some suggestions.
Cheers,
Judy

Thes are SOOC ... I shot RAW + JPEG. These are the JPEG image.
They need some tidying up ... there are a few marks that need cloning out, put I am really happy with what this camera and lens can do.

So ...If I dont need the GPS, I am probably better off with the cheaper K3?
That is where I am heading I think ☺

Hi
I am thinking of upgrading my K7, I thought I was going to get the K3ii, but after reading many reviews I am not sure there is any advantage over the K3. Here in Aus, there is ~$400 difference, so I am thinking of just getting the K3.

Why would I need the K3ii over the K3?

Cheers

It has been pretty wet here too, and I need to take photos for my photography class tomorrow.
You have made me want to go and see what water is 'hanging' around :)

Kx Owners - 18-55mm Kit Lens Upgrade

I have got the Tamron 17-50mm and have been very pleased with it :)

Just a question, but why would you want to spend the money for the OS in the Sigma lens, when you already have SR in the body of your Kx?

Cheers
