K-3 and P-TTL

Legend?
I speak from experience. The fact that my K5 with the latest firmware updates (both body and Metz AF 560 2) has always had problems with bounce flash is a fact, not a legend. The legends are all those wars on formats (FF vs APS, etc.etc.) created by amateur photographers and not concrete data reported by a photographer who works with photography.

Nice to hear it.
On the K5 the situation was intolerable and I had even thought of switching to Nikon (reluctantly). But if the problem was solved really is a great thing, especially because it allows me to stay in Pentax.

I am a professional photographer and frankly I'm tired of the management of the P-TTL on the K5. I want to change the camera body specifically for this reason. Does anyone know if the management of the P-TTL is REALLY improved on the K-3?

Thanks for replies guys.
Tanzer i just compared in equal light conditions, my flash is a Metz 58 AF2.
During my last wedding i noticed the trouble much more.
I think that will send my Metz in assistance.

K-5 + flash on camera and AF problem
Posted By Vinfer

Greetings to all. I have a problem with my K-5. In practice, when I mount a flash on camera (p-ttl), the green LED that support AF stops working, and led from flash replaces it. So the AF with low light slows down drastically.
Has anyone ever experienced this penalty?

Pentax K-5 hangs when doing digital preview with AF-360 flash

I just have found the source of the problem: is it option "lens correction" in camera (distortion and chromatic aberration). If one or both options are active, the problem returns ;)

I have a have a Lowepro Fastpack 250.

It is not too bulky.
The extraction system of the dslr is very comfortable.
It's very sturdy and keeps in it a 15'' notebook.

You can found here a video:

Dear Pentaxians :D
Today i have received my K7.
Now I have a question.
On the camera body, you try to turn it upside down in all directions several times: from within the body comes a mechanical sound as if something is moved. Is it normal?

K-7 test video start flying out from Japanese users
Posted By Vinfer

I am not surprised of the excellent performance on high iso. Think a moment. Part of the noise is caused by overheating of the sensor.
Now, cause of the video, the sensor has been optimized so as not to overheat even when the shutter is open continuously. This could also reflect beneficially on the images at high ISO with a sensor designed to less heating and so..less noisy.
It's my simple conjecture.

However i will receive the K-7 this week and i will test it personally :D.

first Pentax K-7 full review w/ FW 1.0

A review written by incompetents.
This is the evil face of moderm journalism. A Copy / paste here, one there, and a shameful article is good and ready.

Best funny tale of this review:

1) First Pentax with battery grip (!!!!!!!!!!)

2) "utilising 77 metering segments (notice the 7 and 77 theme here) for improved autofocusing" hahaha.
At most is the AF that help to improve the exposure. NOT the other way.

Bah...I have read enough.

Anyone else dislikes the comparisons of the K-7 to the D5000/T1i or D300/50D even?

In my opinion the real problem recently is that we (in general) tend to associate dslr size with the dslr class. This, in my opinion, is wrong and misleading. We forget too quickly the era of 35mm film camera and fantastic professional slr where compactness and portability often was synonymous with professionalism.

For me the class of the K-7 is the same of Nikon D300/50d.

Comparing a dslr as K7 with D5000/T1i or with Olympus E-620 (!!!) has absolutely no sense.

Ephotozine is a great web zine, undoubtedly.
But...K-7 compared with 620?!?!? It's sound very strange to me. This guy are a little mad :)
For me no sense have comparing an entry level dslr (e620) with a pro/semi-pro dslr (K-7).

They simply will adapt the lens for the new contrast AF system for Live View...like Olympus with any Zuiko.
Nothing alarming.

Would be perfect if the LCD of the K7 was steerable/adjustable. With an LCD monitor adjustablethe live view has a real sense on a dslr body.
