Thankyou :) And yes, we've been having tops of 10's and night below zero and it's not even winter yet. It's going to be a cold one this year!

Lol, Thankyou yes that is me and these are my kids..:) ..I do it a lot, especially with 2 kids and there is always one pulling a goofy face, have their eyes closed or aren't looking lol .. or I chop off one of their limbs ... So I've had a bit of practice :).. Also, in the first photo, I cloned out a large bush in the back corner, it was too distracting.

Ok, nevermind, it would seem I only originally uploaded 4 photos. I think lack of sleep has confused me and I mixed it up with the pending photos. Gosh, I feel silly now lol .. But there is definitely no rejected photos.. yet lol :)

I would lessen the vignetting, but that is more personal taste. The black and white conversion looks great though. :)

Hi! I received my new lens a few days ago and took it out yesterday to give it a test, these are a few photos I got of my kiddos at the park :) ... Would love to know if there is anything I should change.. In the photo of both kids throwing the leaves, I had accidentally chopped their legs off, so I combined their legs from another image.. All the other shots of them throwing leaves, without their legs cropped, had leaves in front of their faces -__- lol .. :)

Pentax k5 problem with fully charged battery?

I have been searching online all day and just found this, and it describes what is happening to my camera .. https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-k-5/152033-k5-mirror-flops-smoking-gun-found.html ...

Since that thread was posted 2 years ago, does anyone know if there is an update? Have pentax said anything about this issue at all? Does anyone else currently have this issue? And most importantly is there a way to fix it? Because damn is it annoying lol :)

Pentax k5 problem with fully charged battery?

Hi, I have had my k5 for a few months now, not long into owning it, it started doing this weird thing where the shutter would release, but not take a photo on any button that I pressed, usually if I put the camera into live view or took a bunch of photos with the flash and wore the battery down a bit then it would stop after a few minutes. Today after charging the battery, it did it again, but this time it was happening continuously if I put the camera into live view, I had to take the battery out for it to stop, turning the switch to off position did nothing. The shutter was also going off when I changed the shutter speed and aperture. I recorded a video of what happens, it was going on for about 20 minutes, but of course it finally stopped towards the end of the video lol .. But you can get an idea of what it does.

It only happens after I charge the battery, and usually goes away after 'wearing down' the battery (not sure if that's the right terminology lol) .. Any idea what the issue is? It never happened with my kr. :)

What about the green glow on the out of focus areas of the paper clip at a wider aperture? I might try the same test in the am with a ruler, that might make it easier to see the focus point (should have thought of that earlier).

Here is a link to the photo on flickr, I've labeled the apertures below the photo. I cropped at 100% and tried to keep enough foreground and background in so you can see the focus is on the middle of the paperclip. I do use the lenshood, and these photos were taken on my back verandah, in the shade with the sun on the other side of the house. This fuzziness has always been there, I had read online that sometimes the photos are soft at a wider aperture, so I assumed it was that, but it's really bugging me I can't open it up further, so I thought I would check if it was normal or not.

I usually use auto focus, but even when I use manual focus, the image will still have glowing edges regardless of whether or not it is in focus. If that makes sense, I will upload some sample images at different apertures in a minute :)

Hi, I have a Sigma 50mm 1.4, and a pentax k5, I usually stick to 2.5 or smaller as anything wider then that starts to get really soft, even if it's in focus, it looks like everything has glowing edges. Is this normal of the sigma lens, or is there something wrong with it? thanks,

Ouch! My mum had a similar accident on her bike on the way home from work, brakes wouldn't work as she was going down a steep hill, she hit the curb and flew over, broke her wrist, and landed on her face. She's had to have a few surgeries on her face and needed a rod put in her wrist.

On a similar topic, I find it really odd that some pro photographers will laugh at you if you ask them what they use as "it's not the camera, but the person behind it", which I do agree with, but then some of those same photographers will look at you like an alien if you say you use a pentax. And chances are, they've never even shot with one!

I'm mostly after something nice and sharp wide open, I do love the bokeh! lol .. I have an album on here in the sample photos, I usually always shoot at around 2.5 and don't usually have any focus issues, but lower then that it does get a bit tricky. I'll look into all the new lens suggestions, just makes my decision more difficult! lol

Hmm, I can't remember exactly what I did with the processing, I usually just fiddle around until I find something I like lol .. But number 2 and 3 I used a Florabella action on them with he opacity reduced and I tweaked a few things.. It may be cheating, but oh well :)

Thankyou everyone for the compliments :)

Hi, I am wanting to buy another lens (currently have Sigma 50mm 1.4) but I'm wanting something longer. I mostly take photos of my kids. I am not sure if I should get the Pentax 77mm 1.8, the Sigma 85 1.4 or the Tamron 90mm 2.8 di macro. The Tamron is about half the price of the other 2 lenses, price doesn't matter too much, but it will just take me a little bit longer to save up for either of the other 2. Should I wait and save up for either the 77mm or 85mm? If so, which do you recommend? I really like how much lighter the 77mm is..

Like I said, I was just curious. No other reason, I'm just a curious person. I loved the lens, it worked great, but it was stolen so I haven't had it for 6 months.

Thankyou! I used to have the kx also, when it got stolen they replaced it with the kr. I was only taking photos of my kids and sometimes friends kids as a hobby, but I would love to get into it more seriously! .. All of the photos above are of my kids, except for the newborn. :)

I guess I was just thinking along the lines of when you buy counterfeit clothing and there is a typo on the label.. I am purchasing another camera online soon and just wanted to double check there was no chance of a counterfeit. Just being overly paranoid I guess lol

I just went and looked again, it actually says "Printed in Jappan" .. I didn't even think that Japan wasn't called Japan in Japan.. lol ..

Like I said, I was just curious. Lens is gone now anyway :(
