I have 4 total batteriies for my K3. I bought the K3 used and I didn't realize it came with an additional battery so I bought a 2 pack online. If I knew it came with 2 batteries I probably woudln't have bought the 2 extra.

Got these two shots today using the Pentax 100. Tried a few with the Sigma 17-70 too, but the 100 came out better.

Those shots are amazing. I just got the Pentax 100 macros and I'm definitely having a rough time getting bugs to stay still long enough to get them in focus. Coudln't imagine gettign shots like yours.

I can't think of any time that I used the flash on my Kx so replacing that with the GPS/Astrotracer unit is a definite positive.

From a couple years ago when I went to Europe, but I had never posted them. Been getting back into photography so I've been running through some of my older stuff.

So I posted back in August about being interested in a Pentax 100 or a Sigma 17-70. Well, I actually ended up getting both. Found the Pentax 100 for $150 (non-WR version) locally and bought a Sigma 17-70 Contemporary off someone in the forums. Additionally, about 20 minutes ago I ordered a K-3 II to replace my Kx. Pretty excited for the new body. Recently printed off a few of my shots and I'm hoping the K-3 helps with some of hte larger prints. Here are a few shots I've taken so far. Haven't had too much of an opportunity for animals/bugs.

Thanks for the recommendations/advice. I'm leaning towards the K3-ii just because it will be cheaper, but I may hold out until Black Friday and just see what pops up then. GPS is important to me, specifically the Astrotracer, but I can get a KP with better IQ and tilting screen and just buy the GPS separately. I think it'll come down to pric e.



Well.....I just said why not adn bought a used K3-ii for $620 with a 2200 shutter count. Seemed to be a decent deal from what I've seen on the forums. Decided that the GPS was the most important piiece for me and this will save me money from having to get the separate unit.

I have a Kx that I bought back in 2010 with my first "real job" paycheck. Was really excited and used it often. The last couple years I haven't used it much, but I recently moved to a new position/location and there are several people who are interested in photography in the office. This has got me back into taking pictures. I recently bought a few lenses, Bower 14mm f/2.8, Pentax 100mm f/2.8 Macro, and Sigma 17-70 Contemporary. I've been debating moving up to a newer body. I really like the K3-ii, specifically because it has the built in GPS and I really like astrophotography. However, it seems like the newer bodies like the KP and K70 have superior high-iso performance and some extra features. Is the KP superior in IQ to the K3? I can always buy the GPS module if i'll get better images from one of the newer bodies.

Additionally, the guy I bought my 100mm from had a K5 with a battery grip. I really enjoyed using the camera much more compared to my Kx. When I hold the Kx my pinky and part of my ring finger have nothing to grab. If I'm looking at battery grips, will 3rd party ones from ebay be an issue?

Thanks for any help.

Hey, I could use some advise. I'm interested in landscape astrophotography and I'm looking for a good lens. I've seen the Samyan 14mm, 16mm, and 24mm all mentioned. Do you guys have any advice on which I should go with?

Hey, I could use some advice. I'd like to get be able to get some macro shots, mostly flowers, and I'm looking at two lenses. First is the Pentax 100mmm-D FA WR and the second is the Sigma 17-70mm. The Sigma is $50 less currently and seems to have pretty good reviews, however, the Pentax has better reviews. If I'm using it solely for macro, would the Pentax be better? Thanks for any help.

Also, there is a person selling the 17-70 on CL for $300, which would be $250 cheaper. If the IQ isn't that significant, that might push me towards the Sigma.

I like the Contrejour 40, but the Nanue Outlander is only $150 from Amazon. Seems like a great deal compared to the alternatives.

Amazon.com: Naneu Outlander Olv Adventure Pro Outdoor Camera Hiking Pack (Olive): Camera & Photo

This was the Naneu I was looking at. While its out of stock, Amazon has it for $150. I'm not in much of a hurry so I'd be fine waiting for it to come back in stock for that price. I also like this Clik:

http://www.amazon.com/Clik-Elite-CE009BK-Series-Obscura/dp/B00DTXSFVQ/ref=sr...rds=Clik+Elite

One think I really like about the Naneu is that the camera pack portion is removable and can be used as a separate backpack or attached to the front of the main pack's straps.

I currently have a ApeCase 1700 sling bag and I do not really like it being a sling so I'm looking for a new backpack for my camera. Ran across the Naneu which is a hiking backpack designed for a camera. I liked the concept, but I don't know anything about the brand. Anyone have experience with them? If not, can you recommend a bag that would hold 3-4 lenses, the camera, some accessories, and then have storage for a bit more stuff?

Thanks for any help.

So I'll be flying to Europe (Germany, France, Italy, Croatia, & Romania from the USA) in June and am looking to bring my camera and three lenses. I'm looking for a bag that will carry that and also have room for storage of other items like light clothing, batteries, and chargers. More importantly it will need to be the size to fit under the seat of a plane; I am hoping to not have to check a bag. I've found a few that hover around $100 such as the Fastback 350 or the Flipside 300, but I'm not really sure what would be best. I currently have a ApeCase sling bag, but I do not find it comfortable.

Well, at the exposure time, the 50 should be better.

I was leaning towards the 35 more than the 50 because I've ran into difficulties with the 50 in doors when using it, but the 50 should be better in low light, correct? I really like the idea of a fisheye as it seems like a fun lens to mess around with.
