@kfreeburg84

I am at the same state as you are now buddy and as long as you are happy with your gear, you are good to go but if you are that of a pro photographer that is earning and dealing with all the rocket science-sorcery of photography well definitely an upgrade is needed. as for me I am happy with my year old K-50 but I just don't have the enough time and resources to go out and use my gear in the proper way hence it will need a new home soon.

Hey how are you? I don't mean to hijack your thread but I think I am selling my K-50 with the kit lens 18-55, 50-200, 50mm prime, AF 200 G flash and a tripod bag and an sd card all complete with all boxes, just PM me if you are interested. RFS don't have enough time to use it, its just laying inside my closet.

Wow I have been looking for such a setup a K50 with a custom battery grip, can you post more images buddy? What mods did you do to make it fit to the K-50? More pictures would mean more help to hungry DIY heads like me!:D

Yes I can imagine my self having a ultra wide angle lens for landscape photos and macros for flowers, animals, and nearby subjects!
Is it very costly in NZ?:confused:

Which lens is used?

Can the Q series be considered a Pocketable camera?

Yes it can be considered! Few nights back (yeah after work) I went to a pentax dealer in my area and handled one QS1 camera and so darn impressed it made me think to buy one for the wifey's birthday! in white and gold! Very nice solidly build cameras and the buttery smooth shutter button once its pressed down gives you that oh so nice feeling of a quality P&S compact camera. Otherwise for the ladies, I think it can fit into a small-medium size bags and for us guys a small leather bag will do!

this lens is faster than the 18-135mm WR lens?
And correct my noobness that Pentax is suppose to be using green colored rings around the lens instead of red? (Canon L lenses = red)
so now its silver, green, red and gold for the top end lenses am I right?

I recently went to a Pentax dealer in my Area and they had it on display so I was able to try it, it had a DA 50mm f/1.8 mounted on I was able to take some shots and damn how smooth and buttery the action was (how the camera performed) it has a way better sounding mechanism than my K-50 which I brought that time, shutter sound was just oh so nice, will the K-3 be replaced with a new flagship? I noticed the price drops and the bundle offers!
Dang if I had the enough cash..

Best 50mm for Pentax K-50?

Yes I have tried to check out that Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 online but it is almost out of stock, if not full retail price, probably like $499 bucks so hmm.
I remember I did manager to try the 18-35mm SIgma lens back in GITEX 2014 last month here in Dubai, but the thing is that he mounted it in a lowest DLSR canon which is the SL1 so hands on quite sucked, I noticed right away the focusing issue! Probably I had it wide open at f/1.8. Here in the UAE there is only one sigma dealer in which I have to travel for total of 2 hours so figures, including that limited 31mm limited is being carried by one store only too! Jeez
The rarity of our gear is a bit tough but challenging! =)

Pentaxino, really in Ghubaiba? Yes I have seen those shops and I thought they did not sell any pentax gear, where I mean which name of the store that carries lenses compatible to our gear? MK trading is the Sigma Authorised Dealer. I believe they are located backside of the Rolex Twin Towers in Deira, last time I went it was friday and I remember it is closed, did not even get to see the shop as to where it is but I did manage to visit their booth in GITEX few weeks back!

Yep I did order my K-50 from adorama but when things get heavy and pricey, tax and shipping via ARAMEX could be a PITA though, and Salam Studio does not even lower their prices by the way, they want you to pay full retail which kinda sucks..anyone knows or even went to this Sigma Lens Dealer named MK trading in Dubai?
