Lens compatibility when upgrading from K-x to K-70

Good choice for the weather, I got soaked taking this shot and a few more of returning fishing boats. The lens hood kept the rain off the lens and I always wipe the lens down before retracting the lens as I hate to take the rain water into the closed up lens.

Battery issues with *ist-DS

I had battery problems with my ist DS and my K200D, both showed "battery depleted" even with lithiums and Eneloops. If you search Pentax battery depleted you will get plenty of similar tales.
Cant remember if the DS has an external power option but I remember other Pentax owners saying it worked. My DS in the end would only give me about 50 shots before any battery would show "depleted" my K200D about 10 before dying. I avoided Pentax cameras that used AA batteries after this and have no problems

Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC FLARE PROBLEM

If I shoot mine towards the sun or the sun is in the shot someplace, the lens will give me flare 90% of the time. This is with no filters and with a UV filter. I just live with it or keep moving till the flare is at the bottom and I can crop it out.

Is the K-01 still worth buying in 2018? Hell yes!

Love my K-01's, use my Bumblebee mostly. I carry the XS40,15, 35 LTDs, and the 18-135 all in a small bag. I also have a blue and two black "Bricks".
Battery life is really good for having to use the rear LCD all the time, get twice the amount of shots compared to my Oly EM10's and even my K70.

You have far too much gear, tell you what, you use it for a few days and sell it to me =)

I look on Ebay now and then and it seems only Japan has nice used K5IIs.
Let me know what you think of the camera?

I love taking photos but hate PP.

I use DXO photo lab, for any RAW shots, it auto downloads the camera and lens info and in seconds its done. I look at what they think it should look at and sometimes I adjust the sliders for black etc, another few seconds and I am done. Try the free demo some time?

I also shoot in JPEG and use DXO or even Photoscape as its free.
That's why I enjoy my Olympus EM10 cameras, make adjustments in the viewfinder, shoot JPEG and done.
Now my shots are not great, but they are all done the easy way with no fake things added =)

I put my K70 up for sale and then changed my mind...again. Everyone else likes it so it must be me?. I have got it up to 3000+ shots and still don't like it and yet it's still hard to sell. I find Ihave a problem letting go of camera gear.

Replacement for my Q?

Heres what I use on my Q7, works great. Had the little Q out today in bright sunshine, no problems. You bring the camera to your eye, use one hand to block top light or a ball hat will work.

For replacement, what I did was get an Olympus EM10 or mark2, put on a Lumix 12-32 and you have a camera that fits in your pocket. Get the cheap 35-100 Lumix and you got a two lens set that takes way better shots than a Q and takes up less room than a 01,02 and 06 set

I can vouch the K70 feels like the K50. I know a guy in Canada who might sell his K70 cheap if your interested =)
