Should I sell my Pentax gear?

Right now I've slapped the 70-200mm onto the K-5, and use the X100s for everything else that doesn't need the reach. Maybe it's time to sell my FAs...

Some FA 31 goodness. Needed some tweaking in Lightroom though.

Thanks for all the advice guys, I think I was having a bit of a knee jerk reaction after sorting through a ton of baby photos and feeling like I needed to tweak all the Pentax ones in Lightroom, but could use a lot of the OOC JPGs from my Fuji.

My equipment is old enough that I don't feel like there's a rush to get rid of it, so I'll keep playing around with the colors (with my wife's approval of course).

Next big test is the booked outside. Haven't had a chance to take the baby out to a park with trees and leaves in the background. Should be fun!

Problem is that I'm colorblind, so I rely heavily on the camera's white balance and JPG choices. I like usually use the Astia setting for people and Velvia for landscapes.

Any suggestions for Pentax? Going from Bright to Portrait seemed to help, but something about skin color still doesn't seem right.

Hello everyone, long time no see.

I've been busy lately with work and work-related travel, and fell in love with the Fuji X100 and X100S. I've since settled down into a more location-stable job, and have a new daughter.

I still have my FA 31, 43, DA 16-50, Sigma 70-200, and I've gone back to using them for my daughter, but the Pentax colors are just driving me nuts.

Fuji's OOC JPGs have great color, particularly for skin. Whereas I feel like I have to tweak every DNG coming out of my K-5 to make it look good.

Am I crazy to just say, screw it, sell all my Pentax gear, and maybe just get a teleconverter for the X100S? Anyone else out here have a similar experience?

Hi guys,

The last three years I've been shooting almost exclusively Fuji X100/X100s due to constant air travel for work. I fell in love with the size, ergonomics, and the OOC JPGs.

I've always felt that OOC JPGs on Pentax have been lagging, so I always shot RAW then processed in Lightroom. Even then, I still liked the Fuji colors better.

Now that I'm thinking about picking up my Pentax K5 again, any thoughts on camera settings and/or Lightroom settings that I can try? I still don't think Lightroom has Pentax calibration profiles.

I haven't checked the warranty status yet, but has Pentax been covering this outside warranty as well, or should I be prepared to pay for it?
