I upgraded from a K-S2 to a Kp and the leap is massive.
Is noticeable better at autofocus, build, shake reduction, burst rate and incredible high ISO capability.

Absolutely love the 3rd wheel, use it for ISO control.

Can the limited 20-40 handle a wedding

I did a friend's wedding (small & intimate) and used 20-40 and 50-135.
I ended using the 20-40 much more, as you are going to take more group shots than headshots.
Bring a flash and you'll be fine. (A macro lens will be useful for details like rings and cake)

Pd: it will be quite tiring, so go ahead well rested.

Could you please help me to choose a graphic card?

I suggest another route: get AMD's Ryzen 5 2400g processor and new motherboard.
The processor has powerful integrated graphics and low power consumption.
It went from an AMD Fx 8120 plus dedicated graphic card to the Ryzen 5, and the leap was massive.
Both gimp and rawtherappe load and run quickly.

Well... I bought it and finally, after 8 days, Amazon shipped it. I also bought the original poster 's, but Amazon cancelled my order for no clear reason.

Thanks for the head up.

That joy talk reminds me of BMW's tacky marketing campaign...
Great to hear they are committed to the dslr K mount and working on stuff like better autofocus.
Will wait patiently for the 85mm.

Fotasy Pro adapters have aperture ring; you'll miss the focus confirmation, but most mirrorless have focus peaking and the likes, to tell you what areas are in focus.

The flash release button is still there, however.

Delighted to see the 85, and even more delighted at so many releases and announces these days.
So Ricoh/Pentax are not that doomed, aren't they :lol:

I'm wondering if is good for video (1080 60p finally)
I just bought a Panasonic Gx85, nice little camera but too much iso noise; if the GR III video is good enough, will definitively get it.

Why these particular suspects have not been banned yet, is beyond my rational thinking.

Is pretty obvious they only come to troll and express their negativity and nothing else.
What a pity.

I really don't get all this whining about the DA*11-18 price.... is similar to both Fuji and Olympus (m4/3) wide angle f2.8 zoom. It seens Pentaxians can't have their cake and eat it.

And remember, it is the initial, introduction price; most probably will go down a couple hundreds in some months, just like every other lens and camera body they have produced over the past years.

We haven't finished january and already people is forecasting bankrupcy and doom, because they improve the coatings on a production lens. Dear lord....

It does. I've used in very, very low light and it focuses well. Is very slow, though.

Thematic Buildings past their best

An abandoned building, between some parks and in front of a public school. Felt almost like an anachronism; I'm guessing there was a juridic problem with it and was abandoned.
I wanted to take a better picture but: it was late, there are many trees around which take off light, and there was a car parked outside this building.

A note regarding the DA*50-135mm: it has outstanding image quality (sharpness, colours, bokeh, rendering) but is very, very slow to focus. I wouldn't consider it for any kind of fast action photography.

Wishful thinking: I hope Pentax makes a 85mm 1.8 in the near future, too. Or at least reduce the price of the 77mm ltd. Nowadays, an used 77 is more expensive than a new 85 1.8 from Sony...... ��
