Just convert it to screwdrive if you are out of warranty. Way better than splashing the cash for something so unreliable

Wow wow wow. Brilliant shots there. The sigma 500mm looks like an excellent lens. Is the screwdrive noisy on the K3? Does the sound alert the animals?

DxO to support Pentax SMC DA* 60-250mm f/4 ED [IF] SDM

Is it easy to use DXO for their lens correction and catalogue everything and make minor adjustments in Lightroom? From my experience, a DNG file in lightroom has to be exported to a tiff file for nik software's silver efex2 to work, and the size increases dramatically. I can see how this would be a major pain if the same applies to using DXO in conjunction with Lightroom.

Wow. This makes me wonder if I should head over to Tokyo Pentax service centre when I am there on vacation and get them to fix the wobble on my FA31mm. Wonder if they would charge or I can say its a manufacturing defect?

No doubt mirrorless is smaller, but a compact FF the size of this canon with a big viewfinder and the 3 FA limiteds would make a killer combo. Pity canon doesn't have anything like the FA limiteds.

I have carried on this tripod on my trips before without a problem. But I suppose checking it in and keeping the ball head in your carry-on might be safer, knowing how anal the TSA can be. Why not ask the check in counter staff?

I am not sure if screwdrive is a bad thing. It makes the lens less likely to fail and that's a good thing IMHO. Despite the lack of complains about Nikon or canon in lens motor, I would take the security of screwdrive any day.

Get a Billingham Hadley. It looks excellent, though it is a little pricey.

There is the prospect of a FF Pentax coming and the 31mm limited would be FF ready. I don't own the sigma 30mm but the 31mm is fantastic.

Hmm I see that the price is now $1199 instead of $1149. The 50-135mm and 16-50mm are still $749 though.

May I suggest the OM-D EM-5? Its stunning for its size. I doubt the WR can hold up to the standard set by the Pentax cameras though. Pair it with the Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8 for a highly versatile kit.

Assuming they only honor a single rebate, it's still 649 less 75. 574 bucks. Versus 721. Try getting a friend back home someone to call to enquire?

Oh, it so cheap now? I thought it was $649 before rebates. Anyway don't the double rebates apply for B&H as well if you buy a DSLR from them?

Is this wide angle ring something new from LEE? I am interested in getting some knock off rings and filter holder from ebay to use with hi-tech filters. Not sure if this wide angle ring is available though.
