Help! Lightroom 4.4 no longer able to preview PEF from my K-3
Posted By HermanLee

I haven't used my K-3 for a while and forgot which format I used before to be able to download.
Now that you guys mentioned it, maybe it was in DNG. That explains why my current PEF won't work.
Too bad that these PEF file are photos of my newborn baby.
Can I use Adobe DNG Converter to convert it to DNG and will it work with my LR 4.4?

Help! Lightroom 4.4 no longer able to preview PEF from my K-3

Hi,

Today, I tried to import some PEF file from my SD card to my computer and all of a sudden the Lightroom 4.4 says "Preview Unavailable for this file"
I had downloaded other PEF file before using same K-3 and had no issues.
Usually I shoot in PEF and copy as DNG when imported.

I didn't change anything since the last time successful imports.
I've tried to purge the cache (edit>preference>file handling) but still can't preview.
I tried to import the file without previewing but a pop up came out and says "This file is not recognized by the raw format support in Lightroom."

I check the update in case there is new update but LR says the software is updated.

Please help!

It seems many are using Picture Perfect. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try to contact them if the ones nearer to LA can't do the work.
My K-3 is no longer under warranty.

Thanks for the link info.
I did bring the camera to General Camera Repair but the owner said he can't fix it because he cannot order the part anymore.
He suggested to send it to Precision Camera.
I'll see what International Camera Repair say.

Replacement Cap for the 77mm LTD

Just a word of caution if you're going to purchase this cap from B&H.
Make sure you call them first and verify if it's black or silver.
Last time I was trying to look for the same cap for my 77Ltd and bought this from B&H.
Back then the picture showed black color on their website and I even got confirmation that it's black.
When it arrived, it's actually silver and I had to return it. Since then they change the photo to silver.

I couldn't find it anywhere here in US. Luckily a forum member here is from Japan and was going back home at that time. He bought me the replacement cap direct from Japan.

Camera bag frustration

Hi mtngal,

Just want to share my experience with my Kata 3N1-30. If the tear on your kata bag is due to normal wear, you can try to contact Kata (in this case Manfrotto as distributor in USA). Last time, mine got a tear on the clip rubber cover and they replace it with a new one. Kata has a lifetime warranty if you purchased it brand new.
So you might want to try to contact them for this and you won't have to worry to buy another bag. Unless you're trying to find an excuse to buy another bag like most of us do...:p

I like that Tamrac Evolution 8 and have tried that in the store also. If you don't like 3N1-30's weight then forget this Tamrac because it's even heavier. But I like the chest strap that connect the shoulders strap. I wish my Kata has that. the Tamrac seems better built also but it's heavier.

I have an old Pentax Super Program.
Recently my friend borrowed this for her photography class.
Right now, I can't get to change the shutter speed anymore when switched to M mode.
Somehow, the top LCD display only show 1000 (sometimes) or nothing at all.
It's not dead yet because it still show 125x or B when I switch to those modes.

I've tried to take off the lens (A 50mm 1.7) and re-mount it again but it doesn't do anything.
It worked for a few second where I can adjust the shutter speed and see the exposures compensation through the viewfinder lcd but then it went dead again.
Now it doesn't show anything anymore.

Anybody can please give me advice on how to fix this problem?
Is my Super Program totally broken?
I really hope I can fix it myself.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know where is better to post about this so I made similar post on K-5 forum. (Mod please delete the one you think not appropriate).

I don't have K-5 yet but I guess this is what everyone has been arguing about.
Link:
Latest K-5 Firmware Update : Software Downloads : PENTAX

It says
Changes to V1.03

* Improved the accuracy of auto focus in low-intensity light condition.
* Improved stability for general performance.

Have fun for those who have been waiting for this.

Dead AF With K5 and FA Lenses
Posted By HermanLee

Are you talking about the FA*28-70 and FA*80-200mm?
If yes, I suggest you to try to push the black front grip (between the hood & distance scale window) AWAY from you until you see the word AUTO FOCUS.
This is a unique method that is specific to these lenses.

Look at this review for better understanding of what I'm talking about:
Fast Sports Zoom Lenses for Pentax | Sigma 70-200mm vs. Tamron 70-200mm vs. Pentax FA* 80-200mm F2.8

I hope this helps solve your problem.

Front/Back focus testing.

What I meant is, for a long zoom like 70-200, adjust the focal length that you use the most.

I have the same problem trying to adjust my 80-200. At the end, I adjusted it based one the 200mm because that's the focal length I use the most out of this lens.
I've posted this same question long time ago and that's the best answer for my case.
Or if you have a good memory, just remember what's the setting for 70mm and what for 200mm, then adjust the micro AF setting according to your need in the field.

Thank you for the photo samples, sevenarrow.
Those are really helpful samples. Since no obvious winner, I think I should go with the widest & cheapest one then :p
The shot from Pentax 12-24mm looks very good. Too bad it only goes up to 12mm.
But I like the constant aperture, sigh..:(

Thank you for the suggestions, guys.
I am actually really interested with the new Sigma 8-16 since it goes all the way to 8mm. Has anyone got a problem using this lens at 8mm for interior/exterior photos?
Many people give good review of the Tamron 10-24 so I think I'll consider this as well.
I love our Pentax Limited, in fact I was thinking to get the 15 Ltd, but I realize that it's not that much different with my 16-50 except of the weight :p

Hi guys,

I need opinion especially from those who already used this type of ultra wide angle lenses. What would be the best one for shooting real estate photos (exterior & interior). My widest lens right now is DA* 16-50mm and it's not wide enough for interior.
I assume a good one at least should have the least distortion.
So what would it be?

So far that I know the available lenses for my K20D are (feel free to add if you can suggest other than these):
- Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6
- Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5
- Sigma 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6
- Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5
- Pentax 12-24mm f/4

Thank you.
