IMHO, if people would spend more time learning how to properly set up and use whatever camera they have, they probably
would be surprised at the quality of the resulting pictures

Question for ON1 Photo Raw users...

I, too, am just getting started with ON1 Camera Raw. Been hampered by using it on a laptop, as my only desktop does not have a
new enough version of OpenGL and no video card. I can't answer your question, but can tell you that on the two occasions that I
contacted their customer support, a got a prompt and very pleasant response, that fully answered my questions. You might check
with customer support to see what, if any, plans they have to solve your problem.

Best regards.

If true, it apparently hasn't concerned the many thousands of customers who have purchased the NEX, a6XXX, and a7x line cameras over the past few years.

Maybe for hardcore sports action. I have used both and cannot agree
with your second hand information regarding AF in non-sporting situations.
Many of the assertions regarding Pentax K-1 AF are made by those who have
never used one. They are merely repeating second hand information.

It all depends which features your sister really needs. I have the a6000, and have seen no need to upgrade, based on my needs. My a6000 was purchased like new with under 1000 shutter
clicks for well under $400. I have recently seen a similar condition a6000 offered for $300. Hard to beat deals like that.

Pentax lens adapter on Sony a6000?
Posted By jlstrawman

Personally, I have had good success with Fotodiox adapters, this adapter in particular:

The Fotodiox North American office is in Wisconsin, and they have good customer support that is accessible by phone. I have had no problems with my Penyax lens becoming stuck..
I use this adapter for both K mount, and with an additional k-m42 adapter. The most important thing is not to over-tighten or force a lens. That can lead to problems. That is my experience.
I also adapt Minolta, Konica, Canon FD, and Olympus lenses to my a6000 and a7 cameras.
