When I tried to leave feedback for this transaction, this error message kept showing up, even though I've filled out all sections:

"There were the following errors:
There was an error in your deal details - make sure your URL is correct and all fields are filled out!"

Any clues?

Asking Price
$240 obo

Item Location
oakland, CA USA

Item Description
Works great. Not heavily used. Only blemish is that there is a nick on the LCD screen (scratched by the camera strap buckle when i first bought it), hence the lower price. It is circled in red on the pic. (the other specks you may see on the pic. are just dusts)
Otherwise works great. Selling it 'cos I bought a new camera.

Upgrading from K10d to Kx--Should I do it?
Posted By annod

Kx it will be then. Before I had the K10D, my last SLR was a MF Olympus Om-2N with only one lens: 50mm f1.8. It was small and light, even with its all metal construction (and inexpensive). I took it everywhere, used it for candid portraits, and general street shooting. So putting that in perspective, I think Kx will be a lot of camera for me, even though it is supposed to be an "entry level" camera. I like the K10D, and I think the new features/improvement on the Kx will be an upgrade for me personally.

Thank you all for your replies.

Posted By annod

Hi all,

I have had a K10d for a coupla years now. I haven't been taken the K10d out of my house because it always seem just a little too heavy and bulky. Among other things, the Kx is attractive to me because of the smaller size and lighter weight. I only use small primes so the I expect I would feel the weight difference. Video is nice. I don't really care about the extra megapixels.

I wonder if the Kx will also improve on the following:
-AF speed, especially when taking candid portraits
-High ISO IQ
-dynamic range or overall IQ
-Better out of the box jpegs


With my own wedding (no official photog) coming up, I would like to be able to hand my camera to a friend to shoot some nice pics (preferably jpegs if good enough, so it will take less time to process) and videos for us.


Things I may miss on the K10D:
-The top display. Are the controls on the K7 harder to use?
-better sealed body. (I do feel okay taking the K10D out in light rain with my cheap A 50mm f1.7 lens. Maybe I will need to be more cautious about using the Kx in light rain or on the beach)

Thanks,

I have a K10D and it fit mine. The ebay description said it fits K10D/K20D/K100D etc.
But obviously I haven't tried all cameras.

Anyway, I got it from ebay seller "shoot-ing", since I get that question a lot.

Item for Sale
smc PENTAX-DA 16-45mm F4 ED AL

Asking Price
SOLD

Item Description
Excellent++ condition. Only lens cap/ lens hood, box shows some signs of use. The lens itself looks almost new.

The image quality of this lens is outstanding. It's just as good (actually may have even less purple fringing) as the DA 21mm lens I just got. It's 97% IQ of my FA 50mm (unscientific test).

In some ways, it's my most versatile lens.
I am only selling it because I prefer the smaller, faster primes. And I can't afford to keep all the lenses. :eek:

Item Description
This is a PK version. Cosmetically, it's excellent +. No scratches. Glass is clean. Included front and rear cap + leather case (faux leather?). The leather case has slight scruff.

Bought it last week on ebay 'cos I thought I would try this and can sell my DA 35mm macro to finance other lens. But I like the DA 35mm more.

Oh well.

(shipping to Canada will cost more)

Thanks,
Donna

I cleaned the TC, and made sure both the TC and lens are clean. Now it is okay, which is good news.

I think I know the reason now.... The TC is the PK version, so there wasn't any pin sticking out, so this isn't the infamous ricoh pin problem.

I just tried putting it on my K10D again. This time, I put the MF/AF-C/AF-S lever in the K10D to MF first, before screwing the TC on, and it doesn't get stuck anymore.

Whew! what a scare.

Thanks,
Donna

I got this vivitar 2x teleconverter (pk) from ebay. Aside from being stuck (I managed to unstuck it, but don't want to put it back on until I know why it gets stuck), I also noticed that there is a brown spot in all the pics I took. I don't see any brown/ black spots on the TC. I don't see any fungus in it either. It looks quite clean, actually. I did see very small smudged area (less than 1mm in diameter) on the edge of rear element of the TC. But the brown spot on pics appear to be towards the center (not exactly...but it is certainly not on the edge)

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Donna

Thanks for the info. I finally got it unstuck with the help of a metal tape measure and some force. However, I am confused as I thought only the p/k/a/... would have the extra pin problem. Mine said it is P/K. I couldn't figure out why it was stuck. i don't want to put the lens back on until I have this figured out.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Donna

Hi all,

I just received my vivitar 2x teleconverter (macro) from an ebay auction. Unfortunately, there is a black/brown spot on every pic. I took. The more serious problem is that the teleconverter is stuck on my camera (k10D) and I can' t get it out!

Has anyone have problem with that? What should I do? (My camera was bought refurbished. Forgot if it came with warranty...)

Thanks,
Donna

Thanks for your suggestions.

I just got the Light: Science & Magic book from the library. Seems like to do it properly, I will need more equipments than I would like to invest in at the moment.

So I decide to go with a pro photog this time, and take mental notes how he does it. Maybe I will invest in equipments later.
