Hi all. There's a superbike practice day at my local raceway next month and I'm going to try my hand at taking some pictures. I'm pretty new to photography with a DSLR. I know that my K-r has a SCN setting for fast moving objects but if I wanted to do things a bit more manually what settings would you recommend?

Light meters?

I haven't used it to take any photos yet but it's been very illuminating :-) walking round seeing how much light is available according to the meter compared to my brain's estimation of the same thing. You'll have to excuse me if this stuff is obvious to you but it's all new to me. My previous camera was a Lumix P&S so I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the new stuff I'm learning.

To finish the story off I bought a 'Leningrad' lightmeter from Ebay which cost me 5. I don't use it to take photos but playing around it taught me more about the relationship between light, aperture and shutter speed in ten minutes that looking at the figures in my camera's viewfinder for a week. A great investment!

I just like to know how things work and I thought a light meter might teach me a bit about the relationship between light and camera settings. I don't necessarily want to use it to take pictures.

I'm afraid we don't have B&H where I live. I'll have a look on Ebay for a Sekonic.

Just had a look. The cheapest is 100- $150! Anything cheaper do the job?

Another noob here with a lovely K-r which I've just started to learn to use. In order to learn a bit more about photography in general I thought it might be a good idea to buy a cheap light meter off Ebay and have a fiddle about with it. What do the experts think?

Here in the UK prices for used kit seem to translate directly from dollars to pounds sterling plus a big percentage. I keep an eye out for used deals at the local camera shop though.

Is the DA version of the 50-200 worth the extra that it costs over the DAL version?

I've just snagged a K-r with a DAL 18-55 from Ebay. It's my first SLR camera. I think I probably need a lens with a longer reach to complement the 18-55. Am I best to stick to a Pentax 50-200 or are there other lenses that would make sense in my situation? I don't want anything too big physically.
