That's great news for those already using a K10. For me however, I actually need a lighter body than my DS due to some physical issues. I'm hoping for a mid level between the K100super and the K10, maybe with 8 mp and a better buffer capacity.

I have enjoyed this thread. I bought my Pentaxian tee shirt to wear to a friend's bar--que because I knew a number of canon and nikon fanatics would be there, I had to stir the pot a little. Actually my DSLR and SLR equipment is pentax, my compact digicam is canon my binoculars are nikon I bought kodak compacts for both my kids and have convinced my brother that nikon is his best option for his needs..guess I'm multinational.

vivitar 28mm 2.8 A lens, keep or sell

Okay folks, I took a chance on Ebay and got burned. I bought a K1000, pentax SMC 50mm f2.0, Star-D 70-200 zoom, vivitar 28mm 2.8 A lens and a fantastic camera bag. This is the last time I buy from a "dealer" who stated that he was selling for someone else and the owner said everything was working but things were being sold "as is"


1. K1000, can not get the shutter to wind
2. 50mm lens had a lousy filter on it, went to take off the filter and the lens fell apart
3. I know the star-D is a C*** lens but my son who uses only manual lenses
gave me $10.00 for it

I had spent $53 on the whole kit (including shipping)
I love the vivitar lens(which works great and does a nice out of focus background rendering) but had hoped to sell the rest of the stuff to pay for it.
Soooo, is $43 too much for the vivitar and a really cool camera bag or should I sell it to recoup some of my losses and try again.

damn, this probably means the release of the 100super has been delayed, and I've been counting on picking up a 100d for a song after the super was released

"torties rule, we have had a couple of them here's peanut-she's black on the other side'
I agree, but if you look at Morgan's leg, technically she's a "torbie"

I just got in my new (to me) 50-200mm lens (i wanted a lightweight traveling lens). I took it outside for some test shots and when I came inside there was five month old Morgan sitting so nicely for me. I know I should have stopped to correct the dreaded green eye, but it blends kind of nicely into her own.

well, I've priced some of the 300a lenes on the market right now but it does add a third option for me.
Thanks

Hi Tom, great goldfinch shot. I'm using the Tamron 70-300 (newest version optimized for digital) not the 100-300. That said my question was more MP for better cropping ability or a longer lens.

I love the capture, you can really see the individual hairs on the bee. I'm usually too scared to get that close. Hats off to you :-) But the colors strike me as "off" maybe it's my moniter but they don't seem natural.

Hi all. This one was done with the Tamron 70-300 without the TC. now this leads to a question. Since despite my closeness to my subject i still needed to do some cropping. If and when I have the cash would I be better off getting a camera higher than 6mg so I have the crop room or spending it on a longer lens. due to my physical issues most of my bird photos will be taken on my deck which has always had feeders and is now getting more natural perches and landing spots so I can try and mimic more natural settings.

Thank you.I feel that with practice this TC will come in handy, but I will keep it away from the zooms.

Hi all. Last week I posted an image taken with a Tamron 70-300mm lens and a Tamron 1.4 AF TC. The general concensus was that the image was pretty poor and that the TC had a lot to do with that. This image was taken with the same TC but with an SMC Pentax-M 1:1.4 50mm prime lens. I know it is slightly over exposed, but that is my fault not the TC.
I am looking for opinions in relation to keeping this TC or not. Thanks,
Judy

I forgot that I even had a tamron AF 1.4 TC, so I matched it to my Tamron 70-300, put it on a monopod and went outside.

Wow, you guys have not only given me food for thought but have helped kick start me into finally starting two (of the many) projects I have been toying with. e
Each will get it's own "Gallery of the Month " and I will go from there. When July's are ready I will be posting links with questions and requests for input. Thank you all again,

I've been working on trying to devolpe my "eye", here is a first attempt. (same lens setup as the honeybee photo). I know that I didn't meter properly for the cat so the white fur on his belly blends a little too smoothly into the grass, and the photo is unsharpened but those are technical details aside from what I am attempting to learn.

Short of taking a course in fine arts and composition. I know my equipment. I can usually nail the exposure, but, I just can't seem after so many years to "get it". I create what I think is a good image and someone posts one that uses the same subject but blows me away with it's look.
I was once critiqued by a NG photographer who said that my images were perfect for textbooks but lousy for art. soooo, how does one learn art?
