Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC FLARE PROBLEM
Posted By zippythezip

If I shoot mine towards the sun or the sun is in the shot someplace, the lens will give me flare 90% of the time. This is with no filters and with a UV filter. I just live with it or keep moving till the flare is at the bottom and I can crop it out.

You have far too much gear, tell you what, you use it for a few days and sell it to me =)

I look on Ebay now and then and it seems only Japan has nice used K5IIs.
Let me know what you think of the camera?

Same here for my Oly, I love the Oly jpeg engine, but still let DXO show me what it thinks and sometimes I agree with the choice.

In for September

I am going to put out the idea of an Olympus EM10 mark2, which with 14-42 and 40-150 can be got now very cheap. Pairs nice with a smart phone and a lot of fun.

What's a decent budget DSLR for a newbie?

OK, now to put another of my different ideas out there. I find now that my eyes are not what they used to be I find it hard to manual focus with a DSLR. So I switched over to using K-01 cameras.
This old camera has the same sensor as the K5 but has focus peaking and zoom focus. Now it can be hard to see in the sunlight but there are ways around this, hoods etc.
I still have my K10 and nice old camera but the rear LCD screen is tiny.

I have read that the grips are similar, been a while since I held a K50.
Now, this is where my lack of reason comes in......I never liked the K50 so I should have read a bit before buying the K70. I was looking at the KP but the lack of IR remote put me off and I don't have a cell phone.

Well for $350 I would be tempted to part with my K70, just dicker over shipping costs as I have never sent anything out of Canada

I vote for a tilt screen on the new K3, dont like the flippy things. While they are at it they can put an EVF on the new K-01 =)

I am going to throw out a different option,
Used Olympus EM10 mark 1, should be going now for around $200, get a $15 pk adapter from Ebay, have a modern setup with auto ISO, easier to focus due to zoom focus and focus peaking. In body IS 3 axis.
All these photos were on EM10, using adapters, more crop factor on Oly though, 50mm becomes 100mm, even on K10 it will still be around 70mm

I think my 18-55II which is a little harder to find now, is better than my other 18-55's and do like the 16-45 but its a bit longer and extends out to get wider which seems odd now.
