Good choice, the K1 and 24-70. I went crazy and bought the K1, 24-70, 70-200, and a month later, the 150-450 (on sale it was!). So far the 24-70 has been my go-to walk around and landscape lens and accounts for about 85% of my shots taken. Great combo. you'll love it!

I had to download a plug-in to get Lightroom to detect my K1. Once installed, everything worked fine. Not a feature I would use unless I was in a studio setting..

and bought the K1, an HD DFA 24-70 and HD DFA 70-200. All at the same time. Used $ from an insurance settlement. Need to make some time this weekend to run through it all and get some shots under my belt.

I sent my FA77 ltd in for repair. Dust, debris and what looked like an insect(?) behind the front element. Had it back in a week and a half. Cost a little over $300 to fix. Focus is much sharper than before. Very pleased.

I'm not buying another damn Pentax camera until they fix their lens prices. Why would I want to waste $$$ on a brand with pi$$-poor representation in 3rd party parts and lenses as well as a marketing department that doesn't seem to give a rats butt about established customers.

FA77 1.8 limited I bought last year for $787 is now $1046 at B&H and Adorama. Looks like I'll be selling my stuff on E-bay and looking for something more consumer friendly.

Just price the cost of your fees into the selling price. That's what every retailer on the planet does. The 2-4 % that credit and debit card companies charge the merchants is added in to what you buy.

I also just purchased a K5 from Adorama. I checked the ID tag on the bottom and it says Pentax Ricoh Imaging Co., but had firmware 1.01 in it. Waiting for the weather to break so I can give it a workout!

Pentax K-x False message "No card in camera"

New cards or old??
What size?
Newest firmware?

I ask because my K-x was having trouble reading cards bigger than 4gb until I updated the firmware. Sometimes it wouldn't work with cards it had worked before. Very frustrating. After installing new firmware, no card problems.

My wife has a Nikon L810 and it is the biggest piece of crap I have ever used. It is even worse than the Vivitar 3.1mp camera I had back in 2003. The autofocus hunts excessively even in bright light. Lots of noise in dim light. Just a few more dollars would have bought a much better camera. Maybe even K-01.
