Wow! same price as a used one (almost). Is this lens compatible with K-1 (in full frame mode)?

Welcome to the forums!

I have the K3 and K50, K3's auto focus accuracy is much better than the K50 (in my opinion). Use a top quality glass with K3 and it will keep you smiling for a long time. Low light noise is what I am not a fan of with respect to K3. But a noise reduction software can fix it.

I would go with KP which has advanced focusing and features which should keep you occupied for a long time.

my 2 cents.

One of the best and least appreciated lens Pentax designed. I am enjoying mine. F4 wide open sharp from 17 to 70. One of my friends who is long time Canon fan, was impressed with the pics from this lens and wanted to borrow my Pentax setup to try it out.

Good luck with the sale.

Microcenter is having a sale on 128GB PNY SDHC UHS-1 U3 type SD card for $39.99. Thought I will get one for upcoming vacation.

According to the Camera comparison, memory card type the cameras can accept is SDXC (UHS-I Compatible) - does this mean it will not recognize UHS-3 or it will not take advantage of UHS-3 speeds?

If I put it in hopefully will not cause corruption.

I did a non-scientific test, 4 shots burst at RAW + JPEG, writing to 2 cards, took 7 to 8 secs to display the pic while it was still writing. I guess my cards are way slower, but works for my needs.

I just checked the cards, Main is Professional Gold SDHC(10) 400x and Second one is Platinum SDHC(10) 200x. Both are 32GB cards.

I am not a pro, just a parent who likes to take pics of family and friends.

I have 2 x Lexar Professional cards in my K3, Main is Gold and second is Platinum (lower speed). Writing RAW to Gold and Jpeg to Platinum, I didn't feel like it was slowing down.

Last Saturday when I was shooting at my son's concert, I did 4 shot bursts with RAW+Jpeg, didn't feel it was writing slow.

Probably have to do some testing with a stop watch.

I bought the 28-300, 2 yrs ago when I was very new to K50, I kept the *istDS in a box. Used the lens for almost 2 yrs, on K3 it wasn't sharp enough, so sold it for $100. Luckily the *istDS gave life to the K50 even after it was dead.
:D

My opinion, the part used for K50 is sub-par or crap. I used my K50 camera almost daily, family even run other direction to avoid me lol, but it still failed. I replaced it with white solenoid and the camera has been rock solid since then. My main is K3, so this K50 is used less now, still works fine. In fact the white solenoid was borrowed from *istDS camera that died because of water damage, the solenoid from it works like a charm!!

Note: I didn't kill the *istDS camera, bought it from Craigslist, the owner listed as water damage, came with Tamron 28-300 lens, he was not sure if it was dead too. Luckily the lens was in pristine condition. $20 well spent for both:D

Good to see the little battery can keep going for long. One thing I noticed when using the battery on my K-50, Pentax OEM battery lasts longer than 3rd party with more capacity.

Pentax 18-50 f4-5.6 little zoom - what do you think about this lens? Is it fast with focusing speed?

Like you said I like the first image, it gives that extra pop and when you print, it might look even better - my preference tho (I am just a casual family photographer)
