I'm a cheap bastard hobbyist with a wife and 2 kids. My wife's solution is to tell me to just keep backing up if I want a wider angle.

I'll spend the rest of the day contemplating what would be fair and get back to you. I appreciate the opportunity.

Considering a K-70 and 18-50 (HD preferred)

1. Does the K-70 do USB charging? Nope.
2. Realistically, how many shots am I going to get from a battery in ~15C weather with no use of video, and mainly through the viewfinder. Either one shot at a time, or a time-lapse? 400+ More if just raw or jpg
3. I've read the reviews here. How do people find the above lens? Especially compared to the 18-55 WR, and 18-135? More interested in far field and curvature at distance, mid apertures, low ISO. Metering? I have the 18-135. The reviews of this lens are much better than of the 18-55 from what I found
4. Does pixel shift help this specific lens' apparent resolution? Don't have that lens. I did comparison shots with the 18-135 and I could easily see improvement.
5. How is the WB accuracy on the K-70 in daylight or cloudy? YMMV - Seems good to me
6. Could I expect aperture block failure within the first 3K shots? I have over 3k shots and have not experienced it.

I've been training with the Samyang 85mm 1.4 manual focus lens on my K70 and I absolutely love it. I'm using it for indoor portraits. Haven't taken it outdoors yet as it's still a little skiddish. Another nice lens not on your list is the Pentax DA 50mm f1.8.

The K70 is awesome, especially for the price which allowed me to purchase more lenses on my budget.

Will this strobe work with my camera?

Will the Orlit 450 KWIK light listed here ORLIT 450 KWIK Series Studio Flash With Bowens S Mount work with my K70? I see that it works with the built-in wireless functions of various cameras and I know my camera does not have that so I need some sort of transmitter as well.

I'm just a hobbyist trying to figure this all out and the strobe seems super cheap so I want to grab one and an appropriate transmitter. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

The only problem I have with my K70 is that sometimes I take photos of really stupid stuff with it. I wish the camera could prevent that.

Lens Correction in AfterShot Pro 3
Posted By Jondolar

Well, the exiting news for me is there are more lens profiles in AfterShot. I just can't seem to find them.

Based on your answer clickclick, I installed the camera profiles for the KS1 and KS1 (DNG) to see if maybe the K70 didn't have the lenses but other camera profiles did. It made no difference. Just 2 lenses listed. Interesting, the K70 is listed under Ricoh (parent company) and almost all other cameras are listed under the Pentax brand. Regardless, I only have 2 lenses but now have 3 cameras listed. Frustrating.

I've checked for updates and I have the latest. I'll open a ticket with Corel.

I found them. They are all listed under smc Pentax. The first two lenses (in alphabetical order) were listed under "Pentax". Scrolling through the dozens and dozens of Sigma and Tamron lenses brought me to the "smc Pentax" section where there are a ton of lenses.

Thanks for the info that lead me to just keep on clicking around.

Lens Correction in AfterShot Pro 3

Can someone point me in the right direction to set up a lens correction profile in AfterShot Pro 3 for the following lens:
SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 ED AL [IF] DC WR

Where would I get this info?

If I compare the jpg files processed in the camera to the PEF files, I can easily see the difference and realize that one of the key elements to successfully processing from a RAW PEF file will be to have lens correction information. I've done some searching hoping to find a landing spot already created that has this detail on every Pentax lens ever made (or, at least, my one lens), but, alas, Google was not my friend on this trip. I've selected from the TWO (yes, only 2) Pentax lenses listed in AfterShot and even selecting those "wrong" lenses makes a quality difference.
