    Yep. Basically a "Super" Super Program. I can't trigger shutter manually without loading film...
    I would have preferred the 645N, but beggers can't be choosers.

    I shoot JPEG (got a problem with that?)

    Congrats on the new/old purchase.
    I'm sure it won't disappoint.
    You need the sync cord.
    Connect it to the wireless transmitter pc cord jack.
    Camera > sync cord > wireless transmitter ----> wireless triggers


    You should get a leaf shutter camera that can sync higher if you want to do strobing.

    Thanks. I figured as much, but having it work is another thing. :P
    There are some leaf shutter lenses for the 645, but I don't think I'll grab them anytime soon.

    Yeah, but I think it's worse on the other mounts, because all the other 70-200s use ring-type HSM but the Tamron uses a lousy motor. On the Pentax mount, especially on the K-5, the screw-drive is pretty quick and snappy.

    I checked on a youtube video about a tammy 70-200 on K-5, i think the focusing speed is not too shabby

    I feel the tammy 70200 f2.8 AF is almost the same as DA*50135 in low light. In bright outdoor AF spped seems fast enough.

    @ME109, the IQ of that 18-135 definitely looks worse that kit 18-55

    Before dissing the lens, it might be due to user error or lousy web compression instead. At web sizes, all lenses should look fine
