Default Pick-Off Attempt

Been a long hot summer in Arizona-not too much shooting in 115 degree heat. Still in the mid 90's in late October. Went to a Fall Baseball League game on Monday night-using my K5IIs with 55-300. Shot at ISO 3200-AV priority.

VERY nicely done! The K5's sensor certainly performs well at higher ISO.

And you have such a knack of getting the most/best out of that lens. I've had 2 copies of it and haven't managed to get it figured out like you do. Well done.

Default Camera & Lens adjustment.

A little bit of a story with this camera and lens. I tried contacting the new Pentax repair facility-I believe they are in CT. They wouldn't even reply to my emails. The previous warranty repair service is CRIS in Chandler AZ. They won't repair Pentax products because Pentax won't sell them parts. However, they will clean and adjust. My new K5IIs was not focusing well with any of my lenses. Luckily they are about 45 minutes from my house-brought the camera and the 55-300 to them. They claimed the camera focusing was really off and said that now matter how I would have tried with the in-camera lens adjustment it wouldn't have worked. Took 4 days and cost me about $100.00. Now all my lenses work fine-best money I have ever spent. You can find them on the web-or I can give you there info if you need them. Too bad Pentax went with the new repair center-IMHO they are incompetent.
