I shot baseball with the 120-400 with no issue. It is not as fast as the DFA 150-450, but it served me well.

Lots of pics here

No - It's nearly a condemned property. The only thing saving it from the wrecking ball is a will to preserve heritage buildings.

This is an image of the same building from a few years ago.

I've been shooting with the K3 iii predominantly since its arrival. Today was a quick jaunt to the falls to renew my annual parking pass... man I love the files out of the K-1.

Its nice to have a compact APS-C kit again. Today, I was out with the SMC 15mm Ltd. so light and small.

Just use it. The WR feature necessitates a tight fit and finish. As you use it, it will loosen up.

Pentax HD PENTAX-D FA 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6 ED DC WR question

Iím curious. Why buy a 28-105 for your K-x? The 18-135 has a bigger range and delivers on much of the same features as the DFA zoom. All in a similar sized package for a lesser price.

I have both. I like both. I have never had a complaint about softness. I suggest for travel you will appreciate the extra bit on the wide end, and the extra reach. 18-135 is a favourite and Iím glad to have an APS-C body again to shoot it with.

K3 iii performance vs previous Pentax DSLRs make room for some fun with the ďextraĒ frames.. and content for social feeds.

I shoot baseball with DFA 70-210 or DFA 150-450. Normal through my nemesis Chainlink fence.

At the end of the day, the kids think itís cool. YMMV ;)

It's a matter of taste. I find myself adjusting W/B to get the right feel often.

Posting EXIF is more about how you output your photo. Depending on your software, there will be a setting to include/exclude various file info. For example in Lightroom you will see the pull down below in the Export Dialogue.




Make sure your shutter speed is high enough. Your previous remark was that the image was blurry, not necessarily out of focus. blowing grasses, and moving birds need high shutter speeds at least 1/1000 or greater - in many cases you can adjust your AF all you like, but if you dont have fast enough exposure, you will still get motion blur.



Catch in focus is valuable only in Manual Focus. It is also known as "focus trap" - there is lots to read on the forum about that feature, particularly in Macro section.

... I'm still getting used to the new machine. I park this one here as the AF-C seems to have grabbed the ball instead of the player.. (!!)
