It's funny it been called a starter camera especially with what it has to offer, i have been doing some comparisons of the K-S2 with some higher level other brand camera's and it beats some of them into the ground. WR for starters, how many other camera's have this ?, wifi as standard, the list could go on and on. Having viewed some of the images done with it on the forum, i am starting to think i made the right choice in switching from Canon :)

Really nice colourful and sharp pictures, having just purchased a K-S2 it's nice to see what this camera is capable of, not had a chance to get out with mine yet (British Weather) but can't wait.

Looking to get into some vintage glass and looking for some advice, i have heard about Takamur and maybe a couple of other brands. I am looking at maybe a 35mm and a 135mm and looking for maybe 1 more. I have never used an old lens on a dslr so know nothing, i know you have to be in manual, but where do you set the aperture ?. on the lens ?. Also what other lenses fit the K-S2 ?. I have a M42 adaptor but really know nothing more than that :(
Thanks In Advance

Hi Guys
I finally managed to do the update, i was trying to do it the Canon way instead of the Pentax way. I held the menu button while switching the power on and the option to update popped up on my screen :). When i downloaded the update from the Ricoh site there was no readme file, just the bin file.

Thanks for the help and advice

Getting aperture control block on my K-S2 :(

Not felt this excited about a Camera for ages, obviously everything about the K-S2 will be different from the Canon's i have got used but i love a new challenge which i wasn't getting with Canon anymore, a lot of the upgrades on their models was pretty much older gear put into a new model, for example:- I have the 650D which in itself is a pretty good camera, then they brought the 700D out, and the only difference was the mode dial that could turn 360 degree's, yet people were rushing out spending extra money just for that. I like to see proper advancements in photography lol.

Thanks for putting my mind at ease Mike, I have decided to sell all my other Canon gear and put my faith in Pentax, After reading nothing but good reviews on the K-S2 i decided to jump straight in even though the brand isn't as popular as the main 2. Had an old Pentax film camera many moons ago and loved it. Just waiting for it to be delivered and the waiting is killing me lol.

Bought the 55-300mm DA L, i normally don't rush in and buy without checking but i did this time. I am starting to wish i hadn't got the DA L version now, as long as the images are ok it won't bother me too much. Really wanting the Sigma 50-500 for my wildlife shooting, then maybe a Nifty Fifty :)

I once read that the K-S2 wasn't a good camera for wildlife, after viewing all the amazing bird photographs you guys have posted i can honestly say, the guy who said that wants to look at these photo's.
Awesome

Hi, I am new in this forum? what is the main think before buy a slr camera.

Hi. I know i am new to Pentax but have been photographing a few years and one of the first things i like to find out about is Shutter Count, i think it's always wise to find out with the seller showing proof of this. If the seller is genuine he won't mind providing this. Also condition of the body is important, if you can't collect in person make sure the seller has plenty of pictures of the camera and has a return policy in case your not happy.
Hope This Helps :)

Hi
New to Pentax and was wondering if there is a difference between the 55-300mm DA lens and the 55-300mm DA L, is one an older model. I have just purchased the DA L version and was wondering if i bought the right one.

Thanks In Advance

Thanks for letting me join :). I haven't actually used my new Pentax K-S2 yet as i just purchased it today so won't get it till around next Thursday, I have been into photography for quite a few years and had an old Pentax film camera, i have always used Canon upto now and fancied a change. Pentax seemed a good choice so went with the K-S2, so will probably have a few questions in the near future.
Thanks again
Tim
