I would absolutely love this for my daughter. She is desperate for a Pentax but I am struggling to afford one for her.

I use an old FA 70-300 that I got off ebay for about 70. No WR and has a screw motor but it was only 70 and it performs well. You can then use the 130 to start to save up to 300 for the 50-300.

K-S2 wifi vs K-1 wifi

I think Ricoh's complete complacency over the compatibility issues with image synch is shocking rather than ensuring their app works across the android platform. All I get from them nowadays is 'take it up with your phone manufacturer'. Like LG are going to be bothered about adapting their OS for the benefit of a relatively few Pentax owners who want to use the Pentax app on one of their phones - a tiny minority as opposed the relatively large proportion of Pentax K-S2 owners that are affected. It is a disgraceful way to treat you customer base.

K1 pics new update with da lenses this time

Both as in bigger sensor equates to more mp. Going on the correct figures, a K-5 APS-C sensor scaled up to FF would have 36mp. Therefore, if they are making a APC-C sensor with 24mp in the K-3, why not scale this up to give higher mp in the FF and 24mp in crop mode?

Probably a thick question but if 32mp at FF translates to 16mp and APS-C, why don't they make a 24mp APS-C sensor bigger - more mp across the FF format then.

However, I wouldn't bank on the wifi working. In fact you might want to check with Ricoh to see if the app works on your phone because if it doesn't, they won't do anything about it.

I seriously hope that Ricoh do not regard this as 'resolution'

because I will be very disappointed and will ensure that they know it.

Buying a KS-2 - Which lens?

I love the 18-135. It is a bit more than the 18-55 to lug around and it is a bit loose on the zoom front so I have to keep zooming it back in as I walk around because motion means it zooms out. It has more or less rendered my 55-200 redundant as I have an 70-300 FA for longer reach; the 55-200 is still useful for its WR though.

I have lodged the issue with Ricoh. They asked me to try it out on another phone and I used my partner's Samsung; still not joy. I have emailed them back and they have escalated it so hopefully a solution will be found and the app updated.

Alternatively having a screen protector on a K-S2 may also slow down hinge wear as you won't have to flip the screen round just for short term carrying etc but only when you put it away.

I have searched for this on here but cannot find anybody else who has the same problem. I have a LG G3 running Android 5. I can connect Image Sync to the camera using NFC and it will take photos and dispaly thumbnails of those photos. I do not get live view though and the enable live view icon is greyed out. Anybody know how I can sort this please?

I can't see the problem with just holding the shutter to lock the focus and using the AEL to lock the exposure.
