Forum: Pentax K-3 III 06-16-2021, 09:20 PM  
How difficult are K-3 III AF points to see through the viewfinder?

Yes, sir! It works for AF.C!

All the AF points are red all the time. AT the moment you press the AF back button they become black and you are still not sure absolutely which AF point was chosen to focus. At the momeny you release the AF button the AF points (group) are red again.

BR!

If you go to C2 "Fx Button" and select(program) for some of the buttons "Viewfinder Light" then the AF points are lit in red all the time and just at the moment of focusing are dark. Then are red again automatically.
For some reason it seems to act different than when selected from the menu Vewfinder Display/Viewfinder Light.
This is workable solution for me.

HD Pentax DA 560mm f/5.6 ED AW replacement : what are your thoughts ?
Posted By mocker

I absolutely agree with redpit!

Something to add: Pentax sometimes surprised us with new lenses (not mentioned in the road map) so I expect replacement for sure. And it won't take so long as developing new camera.
For me personally the best option is 400F4 or even better better 500F4 (but not more than 4 kg.) which may be combined with 1.4TC.
Of corse new version of DA560 - but with the motor as DFA150-450 is an option, but I am not sure this will make the users of DA560 to pay another 5K euro for optically more or less lence. But if they offer the mentioned by redpit upgrade option (which I believe will be technically difficult if not impossible) it will be great!

DFA150-450 with 1.4 TC is not an option.
Same as DA560.

I cant make proper photos with K3 + 150-450 + 1.4 TC.
K1 + 140-450 + 1.4 TC the only proper photos were made with electronic shutter.
I am eager to test on K3III.

Depends on what you are going to shoot and which lenses are you going to use, but K3 is still unbeatable on some characteristics.

Question about DA*55 or FA50 f2.8 macro

DA*55 1.4 is a great lens, there are lots of samples in the net! Superb IQ and it was fixed to my K3 several times for long periods under heavy rain - and no issued. Its still in perfect condition. AF is a bit slower compared to other lenses, but after all it is for portraits and you do not chaise speed with it. And It works with K1 as well. I never tried FA 50 2.8.

Can you give some more details?
I want to make something like U1 = fast (ISO fixed to 500, max aperture, AFC) U2 = very fast (ISO fixed to 1000, ...) and U3 = I don't know?!
Probably the front dial to be set for ISO.


So if I make some landscape pics on tripod I have enough time for the right settings, but if I see suddenly a bird or other animal I would like to change it to a fast setting immediatelly. But I am not sure which will fit me the best so I think its better to try some of your already tested setting.
