After K-7, K-5, K-3, K-1 on the negative side then Pentax can continue with the positive side with K+1, K+3, K+5, etc to K+infinity. The possibilities are literally endless :)

LOL I had the same experience and ended up with too many lenses. I finally cured my LBA by buying only the best :) I can't wait for the FF so that hopefully I can cure my camera buying addiction as well :)

DA 60-250 f/4 OR Tammy 70-200??? Others
Posted By Doanh

I have both lenses. Out of the two, I'd recommend the Tammy as it is more versatile (f2.8, semi-macro capability). For landscapes and building, I think you need a wide angle lens (DA 14, 15, or 12-24). DA 35 macro works too. Good luck with your trip.

You don't need to convert since the files are already DNG files. Just Copy or Add.

Hi Tim,

May be you pressed the button down the whole way. You should only half press the button for metering without taking the picture.

Check the metering switch. You probably accidentally switched to Spot Metering.

RAW vs JPEG - Needless Controversy
Posted By Doanh
Replies: 21
Views: 3,111
I prefer shooting RAW since I can correct WB. Memory is so cheap nowadays so saving space is no longer my concern.

By the way, some people prefer shooting JPEG, other prefer RAW; never a controversy. Calling people who prefer shooting RAW bragging or superior air is insulting and useless in conversation.

I recommend the Think Tank Urban Disguise 40 or similar. For longer lens mounted on camera such as the 60-250 combo, I use the Urban Disguise 35 ver.2 (I have both).

In theory, I agree with Adam, but if I recall correctly, MightyMike did a SR vs. focal length test and the results point to setting to the long end.

Whats the difference between 'exposure bracketing' and HDR?

I would like to add to what enoeske and crew1 already said: In camera HDR only work in JPEG, while you can shoot raw with multi exposures which give you more control.

Canon 5Dii/ Nikon D800E impression
Posted By Doanh
Replies: 11

My wife's cousin (who is also my friend) has a D800 while I have the K-5. I can say that K-5 WB is really superior to the D800. High ISO of the K-5 is on par. However, focusing speed is way better on the D800. Anyway, I just want to say that I agree with the OP from my brief experience with the D800.

BTW, when I first got the K-5, I thought the color looks washed out and lower contrast compared to my previous K-7. Later I realized it's because of the wider DR. The K-5 is a really good camera!
