I am looking at the FEISOL Elite Tripod CT-3472 Rapid its cheaper then gitzo but seems just as good. I need a better tripod to support a 500mm f4.

I have given up on this lens and I have my eyes set on a canon 500 f4. Still keeping my Pentax though its weather sealing is hard to ignore.

I kind of like it but I also still love my k5 but the af on the canon is night and days better the my k5. Even the full auto mode seems to no what you want to focus on 85% of the time. The best part though is how can customize the af system I have also change my af focus from shutter to another button. So if I hold it it will keep tracking and if the bird for Example stops I just have to let go and it lock focus. So your always ready for action.

So anyway I was browsing kijijiji just for the hell of it and came across a guy selling a 7d, with battery grip ( canon brand) 2 battery's, 2 high speed CF cards, 50mm 1.8, 28-135mm lens, tripod, and camera backpack. I emailed him and told him I would give him $1500 while I ended up getting everything for $1650 and the camera shutter count is only 2732.

I have used it the last 3 days and it works perfectly I picked up the 400 5.6 for BIF and as my long range tripod lens.

I am keeping my trusty K5 though since I like to shoot in the rain and its better for hiking. Also from my tests the K5 blows away the 7D in noise performance.

I guess the guy just needed money.

Is pentax AF that bad

The AF is Slow to lock on and because there are only 11 points it makes it even harder if your subject is small like a bird., they need at least 19 points. Even so you can still get awesome photos you just have to try a bit harder though especially with birds and you cant reliably track a bird if the background is not clear at least I cant.

I took that last night.

I got my K5 really only because it was on sale and my k100D super was kinda long in the tooth I really didn't think I would use it all that much. Shortly after buying the camera I became interested in Wildlife photography it only seems natural I guess since I am outside and always fishing, hiking or what have you. Anyway even though I had a K100 I never used it like a dslr I only used it in auto mode so I count the k5 as my first true real camera and its been a great to learn on. I have to say Pentax makes one hell of a good camera in terms of ergonomics and build quality I have dropped my K5 and DA300 combo off my car on to pavment and the other day I dropped it into a pond and it still runs like a charm. I have tried the Nikon D7000, D300 and Canon 7D and the K5 is overall I think a better camera that far easier to use and built better. My only dislike is the AF I mostly photograph birds and its not very good but for if your doing anything other then action then its fine for 90% of people.

I am really hoping the K3 or what ever it will be called is awesome and has a new AF with at least 19 points and that 560mm lens comes out if not I think I am going to move to two brands probably Canon just because they have such good lenses for wildlife and good AF and keep Pentax around for bad weather and general stuff.

You can see my photos here Flickr: coreyhkh's Photostream
I think I do pretty good for just having a 300mm

I have gotten a lot of looks mostly from the old Canon guys who say why are you using Pentax my answer is because they make a better camera lol

Was just looking at other brands mostly Nikon and it seems most are not weather sealed. If this is true Pentax should really push this as a selling point. For me its one of the things that is keeping me from switching brands.

Is the K5 supposed to focus fast at F5.6?

Ok I just did some testing with 3 other lenses the 18-55, a sigma 70-300 and the 100mm macro. Results where surprising the af on all these works really good and fast with no hunting. This was done at night in my living room with dim lights. This means it's not the k5 but the da*300 and tc just don't like each other I think it's because it's SMD and if I am not mistaking all the tc that work with SMD are really just hacks and where not design with it in mind. Also of not the macro which is a 2.8 lens was the slowest of the 3.

Hello I have a question I am using a Kenko TC with my DA*300 and AF is kind of shit, like it has a hard time locking on and by the time it does the subject has moved on, in my case birds. Is this more the TC and lens combo or is it the camera. I am wondering because the 560mm that's coming is a 5.6 lens and if the AF is anything like my combo its going to be crap.
