I've shot mine for a long time (one of the first lenses I purchased when I came to Pentax) and have tried alternatives. In that price range there is nothing better, even in low light. You might check your camera settings for the light you are shooting in too. pepperberry makes a great point - if you are shooting primarily at the long end why not try a 200mm prime?

Large Pentax collection being sold in The Netherlands

Pentax set

Total purchase value of this set (note, before overhaul, cleaning, etc.)

~ € 1,900

Collector value *

~ € 14,000

( This value is based on the average of 1-to-10 price listings per camera, registered since 2010 )

Because we want to get rid of the set due to lack of space, we certainly do not ask for trade prices but we are willing to sell the complete set for a nice price.

Not precisely true. Click on "New & Used" and look at the list. If under "Seller Information" it says "Fulfilled by Amazon" then its not their own stock. If under "Seller Information" it says Amazon then its their own stock. You get to pick which supplier you want.

K-5IIs - still like it best of all my Pentax cameras. The K-1 is better in many regards but also bigger. When I want to do candids its the Q though.

Thanks. Yes, but its the principle of the thing. They lie and say its for OUR convenience and to ensure we have the MOST up-to-date software. I call BS. Its all about profit and control on their part. Just like Office365, etc. I'm using LR5.7 right now and I'm mostly fine but I'm considering something more robust that will handle the K1 output.

Adobe Photography Plan Price Increase?

I've been forced, due to my profession, to use cloud computing for a variety of data analyses and other functions. I've conducted an assessment and the process now with the online process and the highest speed office connection takes 5.2x longer than the desktop native program that I was using prior to this "improvement". Add to that the fact that the server was down yesterday at a crucial time, they have "planned maintenance", and other hassles and Cloud computing has been nothing but a PITA for me every single time I've been forced (yes, forced) to use it. Buy the software, install it on my computer, run it whenever I want is far and away better in every regard from my experiences. Part of why I asked a while ago for recommendations for alternatives to LR and PS as I will not pay monthly for online software access. Rant over.

You can also use the 2s delay so as to dampen the effect of touching the camera on vibration.

I've tried them and they're a kludge. They are neither fish nor foul and just don't really add much to the situation. Not stable enough, IMHO, to leave your camera attached without you holding on and not as portable and easy to reposition as a monopod alone. YMMV.

GR III doing very well in Japan

Does this Translation of their post on the GRIII read right?

RICOH GR III released on March 15th is 1st! ... I mean, it is the top of the cutting edge. We have a big difference in the double score in the sales number in the second place.
Prices over 100,000 yen are not cheap at all in the compact camera category. But compared to the price of single-lens cameras these days, is it a price that is easy to put out?
Even so, the popularity of the GR series is immeasurable. 35mm size conversion: It is a style that has not changed from the first series with 28mm equivalent wide-angle single focus lens, but has always attracted high support from users.
This time, the main parts such as the lens, sensor, and image processing engine have been completely revamped, and the start-up speed has also been improved with a great deal of attention to image quality and performance. It seems to have won a lot.
