Very disappointed with K 5 photos

I did check the histogram on most of my Raw images and it did not look underexposed. That is what surprised me when I saw the LR histogram. My lens was my old standby. Sigma 17-70mm lens

Just got back from vacation in Carribean and WDW. All photos were underexposed. When looking at LR histograms showed a 1 stop underexposure. I rechecked to make sure I did not increase exposure compensation, and I had not! Is this common for the k5?

Took photo opening day at track. Didn't know he was going to win the Indy 500! Taken with K-x and Sigma 17-70mm lens. Was about two feet away from him.

Best Pentax KX & prime Europe travel kit?

I returned from 12 day Med Cruise in early November. Visited Toulon, France; Cinque Terre Italy: Vernazza, italy: Sorrento and the Amalfi coast: Venice: Dubrovnik, Croatia and Corfu Greece. Weather was mixed lots of cloudy and rainy days.
My lenses for my white KX were Sigma 17-70mm, Sigma 10-20mm and Pentax 28-105mm. Never used the Pentax but used the Sigma 17-70mm in all areas but Venice where I used the Sigma 10-20 lens. The Sigma did a fantastic job and my MyPublisher book just arrived and I get "Wow" comments on photos taken with camera and lens. Also did panorama of Amalfi using 9 photos and producing a 11" x 33" photo.

I posted this item to point out how far digital cameras have come from my first Canon 2 mg to my new K-x. Also, the photo I took was with my new Ipod Touch the newest generation of Ipod Touches and has a less than 1 megapixel camera on the back for individual photos and also HD video (which is best). Don't over analyze! Just take it all in.

Wow! Just took photo of my wife with my new Ipod Touch 4G with less than 1 mg camera...then took same photo with K-x! WOW what a difference! The K-x blows it away! Seriously folks, appreciate what modern technology does...the K-x is fantastic and the Ipod Touch fine for fun....and that is the way it used to be with the small megapixel cameras. We have to appreciate how far we have come.

Thanks to everyone who answered. I like the idea of taking my first choices 17-70 and 10-20 and adding a fast prime as suggested in several posts. I really appreciate everyones input.

I am taking my new white K-x on a Med Cruise in October. I plan on taking my Sigma 17-70mm lens, Sigma 10-20 lens and Pentax 28-105mm lens. Do I need another? Thought about buying a Pentax DA 35mm f2.8 macro! I am not taking my Sigma 70-300mm lens...want to get closer to subject. Past European experience has shown I don't need a long focal length lens.

I love the Nikon 18-105mm lens and hope Pentax puts one out with similar range. It would be a great travel, portrait etc. lens. That is the lens range I would like to see!

Upgrading from K10d to Kx--Should I do it?

I own the K10D and a new white K-x. I love the K-x!!

I have had good luck with my K10D, and have had excellent results with the camera, but I like the K-x even more! Yesterday I was out shooting during 10-12 of course one of the worst times of day to shoot and with a little fine tuning use of Exposure comp, got great JPEG's right out of the camera. I love the HDR and special filters. Just in looking at photo comparisons of K10D and K-x side by side the K-x Jpegs look better.

The K-x is much easier to lug around all day and I plan on taking it to Europe on a Med cruise in October. I can hardly wait to take great images with it.

Close to buying K-X

I have owned Nikon (D40), Canon (XT and G11) and still own Pentax K10D. I have held and tried out the Canon XSi and the Nikon D3000 and D5000 and they feel light weight but cheap in my hands. Recently I bought a Pentax K-x in white from B&H and I believe it is the BEST Pentax I have owned. Great photos and lots of useful and fun features. This is a SOLID really feels great in my hands. Check K-x in use in DSLR Forum here to see a recent picture I took at a model shoot at the Pop Photography Digital Days workshop. Go with the K-x you will not be disappointed.

I attended Digital Days workshop presented by Popular Photography and Sony last weekend. Part of this great workshop was a photo shoot of pro models set up in professionally set up lighting. I used my Pentax K-x White camera to shoot 199 photos of female, male, kids and family shots complete with young girl. It was fun and the 45 in attendance with their Nikons and Canons did not surpase what I achieved with my Pentax. This is a new camera, just got it last week to compliment my K10D. Here is an example. Shot with Sigma 17-70mm lens at wide open Ap priority and 800 ISO.

Anybody had this problem with K-x. Cannot get ISO range and bottom number set at ISO 200. Have had to go into Menu and reset to Default settings to then access ISO range and bottom number to ISO 200. BUT once I go in and change any settings like Custom menu, such as increased Sharpening, Hue etc. and then go back to Capture mode in AV etc. the ISO range is now 400 and above and will not go to ISO 200 unless I start over by Reset to Default. The camera is brand new..and this is an aggravating problem. Any ideas?

Thanks to many members of this forum, I followed their advice and purchased a Sigma 10-20mm lens for my K10D. I did my due diligence on the lens and read several articles on how best to use a Ultra wide lense including the Ken Rockwell article. Now I'd like to hear from you. What is the best way you have found to use this great lense.

I own K10D and have following lenses and accessories:
Pentax 18-55mm, Pentax 28-105mm, Sigma 17-70mm and Sigma 70-300mm lens, also own AF360 flash. Trying to decide if I want to just add Sigma 10-20mm lens or go for the Pentax K20D!! With K7 now doubt K20D will come down in price. What should I do...New K20D or just add Sigma 10-20mm lens to collection. Thanks
