Pentax 10-17mm or "Samyang" 8mm?

Your comments are confirming what I was already thinking and I do appreciate that. The 8mm would be for price only and I'm trying to get away from that.

Looking to take some fun pet pictures. What would you buy? I bought a Tamron 10-24 in order to get all of my daughters marching band in one frame and wouldn't be against selling this and picking up the 10-17mm if it would serve both purposes.

A reset is worth a shot. Thanks for that, I didnt even consiser it.

As for the partial battery charge, that was only to get it to working codition so I could use it. I have been fully charging both batteries after every couple of heavy uses in order to avoid these type of problems. I think I'm going to send it in once I'm done shooting soccer games. Too many problems for a seven week old $1200 camera. I had to return my K-r once as well.

It was on the shelf with the power off on both body and grip. Turning it on gave me nothing. Put AA's in the grip and still got nothing. Tested the AA's with a meter and they were fine. Tested the body and grip batteries and found 0.0 volts in each. One of the batteries is aftermarket but the grip is Pentax. I charged the pentax battery for and hour which gave it a weak 6.9 volt charge. I placed this battery in the camera which gave me a weak battery warning on the body. I then placed the AA's in the grip and attached it. This setup got me through the game I had to shoot but I still want to know what happened. This body has froze up three or four times in the seven weeks I've owned it. I'm thinking its got to go back but I need it for a couple more weeks until soccer is over. Anybody have any ideas?

Body is less than three weeks old. Firmware was updated immediately. Pentax battery in camera, third party battery in Pentax grip. Both batteries on about the second charge. Froze until grip was removed and body battery removed and then replaced.

Asking Price

Item Location
Sterling Heights, Mi (United States)

Item Description
I marked condition as excellent as I cant find any reason to call this 90%. The integral hood feels loose to me as its not as tight as my Ltd lens hoods but I dont thing that there is anything wrong with it. I think I can see a couple specs of dust in the lens but nothing anywhere near what I think would cause an IQ issue. Blades look nice and clean. I will ship in the con US for $10. Canadian buyers will have to contact me for shipping charges.

No comment on the lenses but I just ordered a K-5 as well. At this point I'm going to keep my K-r as I wish I had kept my K-x.

PF support through B&H purchases

Since Nov of 2010 I have spent over $1300 buying items from your online store. I chose to do business with your store in large part because of your promise to support PF. I find out today that despite all the directions I attempted to follow and follow up e-mails that none of my purchases have garnered PF any support. It seems stupid to me that with all the directions given on this forum to get this done that nothing has worked. Wouldn't it be easier to provide a coupon code for the users of this forum. You leave me no choice but to purchase from another retailer and see if PF receives the promised support. Maybe Adorama might share a little bit of my next purchase with PF.
