The K-01 offers high image quality and can be fun to shoot with but I find focusing with it very challenging in lower light. So, hard to recommend as a primary camera.

I agree. Great lens. I use it on my K3. Was wondering how it felt on the much smaller KP.

Hi,

Has anybody been using the KP with the Pentax 16-85? Wondering how well that balances. My concern is that it is not a good match and between body size and lens size. What's your experience?

Thanks

I know that there's been a lot of issues with the SDM motor on this lens, but has Pentax solved that so that the new ones don't have the reliability issue?

Thanks

Sounds like TMax has the edge if you are careful in what you do.

Not sure about Bridge, although I think it might be available from there too, once installed it should be accessible through either LR or PS.

I just picked up a Spotmatic F which came with a M42 55mm f1.8 Super-Multi-Coated Takumar attached to it. Turns out I also have a M42 55mm f1.8 SMCTak sitting around. The Super Multi Coated is obviously a tank and the SMC more compact, but is there any advantage of using one over the other, outside of the Super Multi Coated appearing to be nearly indestructible? I believe both can support open aperture readings on the Spot F.

Too bad if it's not working. I've bought through Rakuten (Pentax MX-1, a kit lens, etc.) a number of times in the past and never had a problem and did take advantage of their coupons.

It would be great if they had a showroom like this in NY to expand awareness of the brand, esp Pentax. Not sure if it is economically feasible though.

Suggestion Ban Paypal surcharges on Marketplace - It violates Paypal user agreement
Posted By Spodeworld

That's not realistic as there's really no way for them to know that since there isn't an explicit surcharge called out in the Paypal interface. It is that there are sellers who expect the user to cover Paypal fees and pay an additional 3%...it's couched in terms like "net to me" or "convenience fee" or stated outright. I believe that it should be a guideline on the marketplace rather than a "police action."

I disagree. There are sellers who say that they expect a 3% surcharge beyond the stated price for buyers who use Paypal.

I originally posted this on general talk, but it may be more appropriate here:

If anyone is asking for the buyer to pay for the PayPal fees he or she is violating the PayPal user agreement

"Accepting Payments From Buyers for Goods and Services
Receiving personal payments


No surcharges

You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions."

PayPal

This should be enforced in the Marketplace
