Who else would like to see a retro Pentax camera ?

This was my first thought when I read the original post.

Pentax's bodies are already somewhat retro in feel. As one of the only companies bothering with mirrored DSLRs, I suppose that camera bodies will contine to feel "retro", "vintage" or "classic" no matter the actual formal design.

I would, however, like to see Pentax offer a higher-quality silver/chrome finish on their newest models. I've never really felt that their silver bodies for DSLRs quite match the feel of their silver 35mm bodies...

This is a wonderful depiction of one of the most beautiful landscapes on Earth. The West Coast of NZ should be considered a natural wonder of the world, in my opinion.

Thanks very much for your message and encouragement!

I've had a chance to take some photos over the past couple of weeks, and I am very pleased with this K-5. It has quite a different 'feel' than my Panasonic body, but I'm planning to keep on using both for the forseeable future!

Hopefully promotions like this will become more common worldwide!

Might this be an indicator that profit margins for the K-3 III are doing better than all the hyper-mirrorless anti-DSLR fanboys thought?

I appreciate the advice!

I have tried to read up on this forum about AF calibration, but haven't quite got around to it yet on my new-for-me K-5. It sounds like "dot-tune" is a relatively straightforward and effective method...


Am I correct in thinking that I can save the AF calibration settings for both my Sigma 17-70mm and HD 55-300mm lenses in the camera body itself? In other words, will I have to re-calibrate the AF every time I take a calibrated lens off my camera and start making photographs with another lens?

Your pictures certainly illustrate that the lens can produce some wonderful images!

I've made the purchase, so I'll be experimenting with my copy of the HD 55-300 (non-PLM) in the days/weeks/months/years to come!

Excellent photograph, and a testimony to the virtues of focus-stacking, a technique that I haven't yet had a chance to explore!
