How to Carry It?

To travel light and stay warm, I highly recommend swapping out the 9mm for a .380 Walter PPK - itís the pistol version of a Pentax KP with HD DA 40 Ltd. Swap the rye for a flask of Laphroaig and everything will fall into place.

A gently used K-3, DA 15, DA 21, DA 40. Or perhaps a DA 12-24.

I typically use a monopod with the DA* 60-250. The Vanguard VEO AM-264-TR fits nicely in the Think Tank Perception Pro with the folding feet upwards. I'd take stable ground over anything self-supported.

For me itís the DA* 300. I got the 60-250 and the HD DA 1.4 x TC. I will probably pick up a DA* 200 as well for the extra speed and lighter weight.

The lens is a beauty as is your photo. I consider my copy of the D FA 100 Macro WR to be ďoptical perfectionĒ.

For me the grip should be an add-on. The adaptability of the Pentax system is the reason I shoot it. When Travelling I carry a K-5II and take 3 HD DA Limitedís, all within a small Domke F-5xb shoulder bag. When shooting sports with the DA* 60-250 my kit is carried in a backpack and the grip is attached to the camera for balance as well as the second set of controls. The ability to increase or reduce the size of my camera body based on the shooting requirements for the day is important to me. Lately I have been looking at the K-1. The body isnít much larger than the K-5II. The K1 and FA Limitedís would make a nice compact kit for travel or street photography while a grip would be handy for the massive FF zooms.

Went from a very cold rainy to very warm dry environment with my DA* 60-250. Had to put it in a container with rice overnight to dry it out. Had a canary when I saw the fog inside the lens!

I tried a K-70 yesterday at PEI Photo Labs and was pleasantly surprised. The handling was great and the AF totally smoked my K-5II.

I like my humble crop sensor (K-5II) and it is very fast with the HD DA Limitedís. The IQ from the DA* 60-250 is stellar but the AF is a touch slow for initial lock. Point-to-Point AF is much better. I love to see a DA* 16-50 replacement with faster AF.

Small camera bag for KP + 2 lenses.

The Domke F-5xb carries the following combinations for me:
1) K-5II w/DA 21 Ltd + DA 40 and DA 70.
2) K-5II w/DA 15 Ltd + DA 40 and either DA 70 or D FA 100.
3) K-5II w/D FA 100 + one extra lens.

When you remove one divider the bag will hold a spare lens and leave 6 3/4" in length for a camera with lens attached.
Ensure you place the camera in the bag: grip up. The photo below shows the D FA 100 on camera and DA 15 in the bag.

Each time I purchase a new lens; I shoot with it almost exclusively for a month to learn. Today I'm still learning the DA* 60-250 and get a little better each time I take it out.

Which lenses are you planning on carrying? I can take a photo of the F-5xb with a K-5II HD DA 70 and D FA 100 Macro WR if you like to give you an idea.
