No. I do love my KP's though , and consider it the last camera I will buy.
I donate quite a bit to two Schools and Im always looking for nice used gear to buy.

Rony !!! I do thank you for selling them to me and they just went to new homes this morning. Three young Pentaxians in the making. Haha.

At my age LBA is a given after decades of being a Pentax user. It simply comes with the Territory.

battery life for Pentax KP
Posted By HelenJo

The battery issue is somewhat of a bummer from what Ive read , but not in real life from what Ive actually experienced.
However did you ever think that if they used the LI90 our KP cameras might also be bigger ?
In 70+ days of travel I used LV quite a bit , shot anywhere from 10-300+ images a day , and I always just carried two extras with me (DSTE) , and 2 in the charger back on ship or resort room.
Only once did I even change a battery that was depleted under shooting during the day.
I solved any problem I might encounter just by simply buying 6 DSTE batteries for less than $45 shipped from Amazon. Problem solved Haha.

So Theoretical and Hypothetical situations on paper may have you wanting for More. But real world usage shows its just fine unless you live in Antarctica , or shoot Astro for extremely long periods in a setting.

Remember , Im from a generation that only got 24-35 images from Film. And Film takes 20 times as long to load than a simple battery change.

I absolutely love my KP's and am quite sure they will be my very last cameras as stated before.

---------- Post added 07-05-18 at 10:14 PM ----------

Exactly Right above.

---------- Post added 07-05-18 at 10:18 PM ----------

This is what I used and also Rony has used for several years on his K-30 and K-3II. DSTE is at least consistant , and neither of us can tell a bit of difference from the Pentax branded ones. I got 6 extras for less than $45 shipped. All have been used quite a bit in my KP's.

---------- Post added 07-05-18 at 10:22 PM ----------

Just about same results here. Thank you for confirming what I already suspected.I never did an actual image count , but thought it well over 400+ one day , just afraid to falely state that without knowing specifics.

Mine is a 2008 Kia Sportage AWD. Nice shape and only 100K.
However Im thinking about getting a new Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 with the larger Turbo Diesel this fall. I need it to complete my "Bucket List" Haha !
I never thought I would be doing this at my age , but getting stuck several times in the Kia isnt much fun.
Looked at Ford and Chevy trucks yesterday , Then the Dodge trucks today. I like that straight live axle in the front like a Real 4x4 should have. Im Sold on it now.

Haha ! Im not concerened about the 5000 shots you put on my camera. Im upset because you potty trained Ms Pygmy and now I have to get up at the crack of dawn to let her out , or suffer cat litter all over my kitchen floor !

Oh , I almost forgot. Now that you have your very own KP ? The small grip is Mine ! Put it in your bag and I will get it when I go to the pool. Thank You Rony.:D:D

I offered. Rony wants one so bad after borrowing one of mine. However , he wants a full extended 3 year warranty and mine doesnt have it. Hes buying a brand new one on wednesday. I think hes getting two warranties just in case. Really dont blame him.

The 2 lenses for me that come to mind are the FA 20-35 on film , and my recent HD DA 20-40 Limited on a KP. The latter impressed me so much.

---------- Post added 06-27-18 at 06:56 PM ----------

No , its really my fault. Ive been so stressed the last couple months I cant think straight. I have such an inquiring mind at times Haha.

---------- Post added 06-27-18 at 06:58 PM ----------

I feel such a relief Rony:D I feel so foolish letting my mind get in the gutter.

See what you instigated naming your "Ladies" Haha ! Seeing Rony's post just about gave me a Heart attack !

---------- Post added 06-27-18 at 07:10 PM ----------

Rony , as we discussed its about time ! Im so pleased that you are getting all the lens mess straightened out.
Your next trip will be much nicer even with the DF-A 28-105 or the DA 20-40 limited alone.
I was a hard sell also on the modern Zooms also , but once I went there I never looked back as you now know.

---------- Post added 06-27-18 at 07:15 PM ----------

Your Funny ! I have names for a few of mine also after my extended trip. However I cant post them here or I would be "Banned" for life. Haha !
You "Men" Haha. If you only knew what truly goes on in a old Lady's mind you would not sleep at night.

If you dont mind my straight forward input here. Ditch the FA 24-90 and the FA 35. You have them covered already.

Rony ! Very Funny.
My spine is Ok , Its my ribs that are bothering me.
I see you have been up to no good while Im gone. Haha !
And I didnt crack my ribs riding the waves on the Seven Seas as you proclaimed. I cracked my ribs when I went out of a side door and got blown hard against a metal rail and almost went overboard.
And my lumbar fracture didnt come from a Jet-ski , it came from falling off the bed during rough seas going around the Cape of Good Hope and I landed on my Tailbone. Haha.
So get your facts right Rony !
Im home for good , so come over and bring my 20-35 with you.
I think Pigmy misses you too Rony. She keeps looking at the door ?
