I am not sure people buy pentax SLRs for video purposes. I bought a dedicated sony cam for that specific usage.

Could be a challenge based photo contest with specific points of interest to shoot by November.
Generate a list of PoI all over the world with associated points depending on how easy / hard it is : winner would be the one having accumulated the highest amount of points (based on EXIFS). Multiple winners would be those reaching 100 points!

Thank you for letting us know the end of story ; most of us would have done the same.
I hope you wont give up on the KP because of that and chase a better condition copy soon!

Could you please elaborate on that?
Did you buy it primarily for better handling or autonomy?
I was thinking of buying one but can't find any retailer having it in stock where I live so hard to test it

Keep in mind that silver finish is probably more subject to scuffs than black one.

I would persevere with KP as well (I have one, bought in March, and I am getting used to small grip now).
There is also the D-BG7 grip that is an alternative

AF is what kept me away from K70, more than low light perf ; in any case K70 >> K30 on many aspects.

It really depends on your patience, budget, willingness to get the very last innovations from pentax.
I was waiting for K3 III for almost 2 years and finally decided to go for the KP some weeks ago with no regret.
From K5II it is a huge upgrade and there are opportunities here and there to get KP at a very affordable price tag, which wont be the case for K3 III for sure.

It must be an electronics oriented issue that poped up too early.
Thankfully, warranty exists for a reason ! Please let us know how and when it is sorted out.

What lenses do you use on your KP?
Posted By fsge
Replies: 28
Views: 2,091
My walkaround lens is 18-135, I often add 55-300 for the cases I need more range and light weight.
If I know I dont need range I will take 8-16 instead.
Specific lenses such as macros or 150-450 are out only for dedicated photo sessions, I dont carry them so often...

I also dont understand this as beginning of 2020 is supposed to be release date of K3 iii (from CP+)
Then starting inventory flush of KP more than one year earlier doesnt make much sense.
Either there was a huge quantity of KPs to get rid off, or K3 iii will be released later than expected, or they want to restore some higher price tag in collective mind for KP so that highly priced K3 iii will not be to much of a scarecrow

I only have one ltd which is the 35 macro.
I find it a perfect companion of KP, very good quality with limited weight.
Ltd portfolio as it is today is rather comprehensive and I am not sure I would need any of these, unless new lenses come in line soon

I suggest you get it fixed to clear the doubts about performance and reach full value of this very rare lens
This japanese maintenance center is efficient, they are doing very good work for a reasonable price. I was more worried about shipping than fixing when I used them...

I have the feeling KP is having a 2nd life now that pricing is sweeter.
Another wave of buyers jumped in recently (including me) and immediately started appreciating this camera
