Thanks! So if sending just the lens, it will probably take much longer?

I attached a shot at 150mm f/2.8. Focusing looks okay? I was focusing on the row which didn't quite align with others.

Got mine today. Everything looks good except that it wouldn't focus in LV. I will have to send it back for firmware upgrade. Does anyone know how long it will take? Thanks!

Got an email From Adorama saying that the lens is discontinued and my order is canceled. Too bad!

Did anyone receive any order updates from Adorama? Even I was able to place an order to Adorama through Amazon while there was 1 left, mine was still reported backordered a few hours later. I really have to wonder if it will come back in stock...

used FA 50mm 1.7 or new DA 35mm 2.4?

I was in the same boat a few months ago and I picked the 35mm f/2.4. 50mm is just too far. The 35mm is even good enough to take pictures of your friends sitting across the table in a restaurant! That full stop does not matter. The 35mm does very well in low light with the K-x.

I recently purchased the Sears 135mm f/2.8 macro. Even at f/8 in non-macro mode, it is not sharp. I suspect that there may be some focusing issue on the lens and I will check on that with debug mode. However, when I slightly shake the lens, I could hear some sound! I wonder if this is something wrong with the lens, or something with the modified mount where the dreadful Ricoh pin was already removed...

What lens to take on holiday?

I would take the 55-300mm for all the outdoor shots, and the 31mm for indoor shots (like shots of great food in a fancy restaurant).

I was in the same boat as you when I picked up my K-x back in Feb. I ended up getting the Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4 AL lens for $199. It is great for indoor photos as well. I stopped touching the 18-55mm kit lens after acquiring this lens.

Your shots are very nice - obviously better than mine: sharper, brighter, and better composed. I still got a lot to learn. :p

Thanks, everyone. I think these photos are okay. But when I tried to take a picture of my family in some of those indoor scene, I could not focus sharply on their faces easily.

I am a newbie here. I visited Hearst Castle this past Monday. It was very nice. With my K-x, I attached the Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM IF Lens. My other option was the Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4 lens. I picked the zoom lens because I would need the 18mm focal length for small rooms. The place was dark but not that dark. f/2.4 was nice but f/3.5 may be okay. Did I make the right choice? Any feedback/suggestions on the photos would be welcome! Here is the link: Hearst Castle (2011-04-11) - a set on Flickr

Thanks,
Kai
