A K-50 Thank You!

I often browse this site, but I rarely post anything. I don't feel comfortable sort of jumping into a conversation. However, somebody really helped me, and I hope they learn about it. I have a K-30 and a K-50, and when both are "working" life is good. Recently, the K-50 shot craps on me. I was suddenly taking pictures of a black cat in a coal bin at midnight. I tried customer support, and the first time - no help at all. I accessed this site, and just typed in K-50 to see what would happen.

Someone had developed a short tutorial about the aperture problem that apparently had run amok among K-50's. I worked my way through it, and the final step - looking in the lens to see if the iris moves - did it. Problem diagnosed. I was lucky. The camera was still under warranty, but only by a couple weeks. This time the guy on the other end of the customer service line was good. He sent me to a place in CT called Precision Camera Repair. I just got notified that, after four days in the place, my K-50 is on the way back. I asked a couple questions of the repair place since I'd never heard of it. I got a response the next day, with all questions answered. So far...it's been a good experience. The camera is supposed to be taken back to "original factory settings."

In summary - my thanks to the person who came up with the method of checking out the aperture. It was quick, easy, and saved me a ton of time. It probably enabled me to get the camera in the shop while still under warranty.

Thanks!

Gauging hand grip K5 / KS2 / Nikon D5300 / D5600

My 16yo daughter just got a K-S2, she has, until now, been using my K-70.
The grip on the K-S2 is smaller and she says the K-S2 is easier for her to handle.
I was considering buying her a K5-II, but ended up with the K-S2, I did consider size/weight.
She's very happy with the K-S2, and I'm happy she's happy 😊

Should I buy a second K-S2 or a K-70

I can't compare K-S2 with the K-5 but I can with the K-3 and K-30. I'd describe them as Pappa Bear (K-3), Momma Bear (K-30) and Baby Bear (K-S2). For me, the feel of the K-3 is just perfect: the bottom right corner rests in the heel of my right hand, the middle finger wraps around comfortably, the thumb falls neatly on the AF button (for back-button AF) and the index finger on the shutter. The width is ideal, and the balance and heft are excellent, particularly for lenses >500g. The K-30 (essentially same as K-50) was very good - quite comfortable for each, although back-button focusing is more awkward; the lighter weight was good for carrying and for light-weight lenses, but not as good for big lenses. The K-S2 is the least comfortable for me: the tip of my middle finger presses into the body, and my index finger overshoots the shutter, and having to flex it gives less control. The body is less wide, but quite dense so it feels a little less balanced to me - even compared with the K-30 which is close to the same weight but slightly bigger.

My partner would list them in the reverse order of preference. She finds the K-S2 the most comfortable of the three - more like the old K100D Super that we used to have. I'd say her hands are average size for a caucasian woman - maybe slightly on the smaller side. It has been said that the K-S1 and K-S2 were designed with Japanese women in mind - I don't know whether that is true, but it would not surprise me.

One thing that is noticeable when I go from the K-3 to K-S2 is that the dials and buttons are not as raised and therefore less easy to use; but I guess they are less easy to knock too. The four-way controller is not as easy to use, even compared to the K-30. The PF review specifically mentions that the K-70 is better than the K-S2 in this regard. And of course not having a dedicated ISO button as on the flagship model is less convenient.

You do notice the extra weight of the K-3 compared to K-30 or K-S2 when carrying it for a while. I took the K-S2 and DA-L 55-300 on a walk yesterday and hardly noticed it. With the DA 35 f2.4 it would be rather like a mirrorless.
