Thank you all for your answers and suggestions :-) I got a great offer for the 16-85 and 55-300. So I will test this combination. Maybe I will add a prime lens later. It's great to see that so many helpful people are here. Thanks again :-)

Lenses for Landscape and Travel with K-3ii

Hi everyone,

I am looking for 1-2 new lenses for my K-3ii. I had an 18-135mm, but it's broken. Now I am looking 1 or 2 new lenses for travel and landscape photography.
I am thinking about Pentax HD DA 16-85mm f3.5-5.6 ED DC WR and Pentax DA 55-300mm f/4,5-6,3 ED PLM WR. The 16-85 for landscapes, and the 55-300 for wildlife and also landscape.
I've read many threads and thought about getting 1-2 limited primes, but I think the option with the two zoom lenses is more versatile.
What do you guys think?

Next destination will be Azores ;-)
I hike a lot and love to shoot photos in all weather conditions.

Thanks

Philipp

Abstract Milkyway, first time with Sammy 14mm f2.8

Hi everyone,

this was on of my first attempts in shooting the Milkyway. I used a Samyang 14mm f2.8. Lens was brand new and never used before. So I had to learn how to handle the lens ;)
Hope you like it. Maybe you can give me some tipps how to do better ;)
It was quiet hard to focus at night. I read that some people fix the focusring with tape. But I was shooting also in the day, so this was not a good option for me ;)

Hi,

I think it might be a stupid question , but how do I choose 14mm in the camera menu when I will use a Samyang 14mm lens?
It just offers me 8,12,15 ... :D
I have a K-3ii. Hope someone can help ;)

Since I am shooting with K-3II sometimes I have the same feeling. After a little edit in LR everything looks fine. Imho the jpegs from the K-30 showed somehow better results. Maybe someone can confirm? Just post some pics, we will help you:)

Hey guys, please put me off the list.
I have to travel a lot for my company in August/September and October and the chance that the lens will be returned to the sender is very high :( Sorry that I can't take part in...

Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Banff, Jasper, Calagary.
I thought the same about the 16-45. Maybe I will leave it here and instead pick my 70-300 Tammy ;) For some bears and birds :D

Hey everyone,

I am traveling to Canada in 2 weeks and at the moment I'm planning which camera gear I will take with me.
K-3ii, 18-135mm, 16-45mm ist already packed.
Now I am asking myself, if I need a ND or polarizing filter. What do you recommend?

Best regards,
Philipp

PS: If the sectionis wrong, feel free to switch ;)

Hi everyone,

what is the best way to get images from my K-3ii to a tablet? Samsung Galaxy Tab or Apple iPad Mini.
I am going to shoot some fashion pics and like to show the made pictures to my client :)
I thought about using a Flucard or maybe a wired solution.
So I need help what solutions are available at the moment :) Thanks so far

Hi everyone,

I have a more or less simple (maybe stupid) question.
Can I use any flash with my K-3 ii?
I don't get which models fit on the Pentax K-3 ii hotshoe.
Saw some stuff fitting on Canon and Nikon comaptible that fits on Pentax.
Is that a golden rule? That stuff fitting Canon/Nikon always fots on Pentax hotshoe?

Hope my question isn't to stupid. As an longterm Pentax-User I should know that, but I'm absolutely not sure.

Looking for one or two flash-models and a remote for my K-3ii.

Tamron coming back to the K-mount???

I think it is a clever move, if Tamron will produce lenses for Pentax and brand it like pentax lenses. More sells for Tamron, a wider range of lenses for pentax. Win Win :) Of course the new lenses have to be WR :) But before the new roadmap isn't public, we just can speculate

Thanks for building such a great DSLR. I think all Pentaxians are proud of you. Not only because of K-1. K-3 and K-5 are also great gear! Keep on rolling!
