Hi guys,

Can anyone suggest fast image viewer for raw files (dng)? I need something to go trough 4-500 images, delete those which are blurry or out of focus and then to open the rest in Lightroom.

Thanks.

At the end from so much thinking and choosing i've ended up with Tamron AF 70-200mm F/2,8 LD Di MACRO. Can anyone suggest me what will be good teleconverter to use with it on the K-3?

Since my options are limited regarding the new Sigma 150-500, and the Pentax-D FA 150-450mm is out of my budget, i started thinking about getting manual focus lens.... anyone here tried one of those Pentax / Takumar / Vivitar / Riconar etc. telephoto lens for motorsport? If so, what should i look for?

Hi guys,

i got my K-3 couple of days ago, i've set it up right away the copyright info (both photographer and holder) and i've checked the marker on the "Embed Copyright Data". I was shooting an event yesterday, and i've noticed that theres no info on the pictures. Now i've updated the firmware (from 1.11 to 1.21) and yet, there's no info on the file... what am i missing?

I've ordered the K-3 today (Adorama deal: body + 50 f/1.8) and i still have the 18-55 from my previous kit. At the moment i can find only used Sigma 150-500 (800$) on Amazon, and the Pentax DA 300mm F/4 is around the same price, so again, i have to think this over... From one side i want to go with the 300 because it's weather sealed (and i do shooting in dust and rain, especially on motocross races), and from my experience so far i won't have problem with the end reach. Previous lens i was using lengths over 300, but it was not because i wasn't able to come closer, what i'm saying is even thou it's good to have the coverage it's not so necessary. Anyway, my issue is that i'm going to miss more the range from 55-300, so perhaps 55-300 WR + DA 300 would do the trick... I wish i had a chance to try the DA 300, that way i'd know if i should stick with the 150-500 or go with the prime...

OK thanks everyone for the replies so far, you've been very helpful. Yes I've sold the old 150-500 together with the k30 body, and the Pentax 150-400 is over my budget, so I guess I'll go again with the Sigma. The shots I've missed were because of missed focusing speed as the motorcycles are sometimes quite hard to catch, I had situations were I'm pre focusing on position but the shutter simply wasn't firing. Because I always go across the track I'm shooting handheld, so many times I set the lens on manual focus and I get quite good results. I thought that maybe the DA*300 will be faster with the focus but hey that's why the forum exists :) thanks once more, ill be watching the thread until I get the money for the new camera, but as I said at this time I think I'll go again with the Sigma 150-500.

Now that's something you got me thinking about...

Hi guys, last week I sold my k30 with sigma 150-500 I was using for motorsports.
I'm getting my K3 body, so my dilemma is which lens should I get now. With my previous set I had great photos, but there were times when I missed some great shots, I'm not sure if it was because of the body or the lens. I'm thinking now if the 150-500 would perform better with the K3 body, or should I go with Pentax 60-250 f4, or maybe 300 f4. In this period I realised I do need flexible Len (not fixed) so I'm more toward the 60-250 with eventual tc (1.4). Does anyone here had the 150-500 sigma to compare with the 60-250 Pentax? Also whats your opinion on the 60-250 vs 300 f4? Let me know what you think, I have a week or two before I order.
