I keep checking this thread for the same reason. I suspect when there is some news on the availability of this lens, or it actually starts showing up somewhere, the thread may then get back on topic.

K-3 Power-on issue

Here's an update on my power-on issue. I got a replacement D-BG5 grip from the latest batch received by my local Pentax dealer. It did not solve the problem. Since it now appears that the fault lies with the K-3 I decided to send it and the grip into Pentax for them to fix the problem under warranty. I was told to expect it back in 6-8 weeks. :(
That should be the end of it for me. I will report back either way. Hopefully when it comes back fixed, an explanation will be included.

Power on issues

Same thing here. Seems to only happen with the grip attached and with a battery in the grip.
Steps to reproduce:
battery in both body and grip
attach the grip
power off
after a varying amount of time, but usually no more than 20minutes, it won't power on without pulling out both batteries
Thought it might be just me.
I smell a bug.
So far, leaving the grip attached but with a battery in the body only avoids the problem.

Pentax: Metz

From the website:
"Improvement: HSS function with Pentax K-30 and K-5 II will be enabled."

Haven't tried it yet, so can't comment - I just wanted to post the news for any who may care.
I am curious to see if there are any new options for the slave/servo wireless operation.

Sigma 8- 16 mm lens correction / metadata in PS & LR - especially at 8 mm

This post inspired me to make a batch file which, since I have found it to be quite useful, I thought I'd share here.
Assuming you already have created/edited your .ExifTool_config file as described by the OP, you can put the following into a file called something like "Process_8mm.bat"

O:\Photography\Utils\EXIF\exiftool -progress -overwrite_original -k -ext dng -ext pef -r "-exif:FocalLength

Now you can drag and drop either an individual file or a folder full of files onto this batch file. All the parameters are documented in Phil Harvey's Exiftool onboard help listing, but here's a rundown.
Only PEF and DNG files whose focal length value is not greater than or equal to 10 (meaning <10 or missing) will be affected, no backup will be created, and the output will be displayed for your confirmation.

Hope this helps someone.

Bought mine yesterday as well. It is an upgrade from my K20D and will take me some time to get used to the differences. I picked up the grip, a spare battery and the GPS unit while I was at it.
I like it.
