    maybe the next logical step is for emjay to consider a "concept store" model like sony, which would makes sense for a brand like pentax with limited market penetration.

    rather than let its products rot in the warehouse or in the bottom shelves of numerous dealers who couldn't care less, they should consider selling through 1 or 2 concept stores committed to the brand and stocks the full range of products.

    ultimately, its all about dollars and cents. I hope that they find this worthwhile because it will mean better availability, visibility and more stable prices for customers.

    Hi Newbie to DSLR

    Went from Panasonic TZ27 to KR wif 18-55 kit lens last week.
    My 1yo boy getting harder n harder to "shoot".
    PnS cam.. 9 out of 10 was not usable... too slow (indoor)
    KR.. 5/10 but i m still not getting it right ...

    Will this lens be a good option?
    Or I am just not using my kit lens right?

    you are being limited by the maximum aperture for the kit lens, i suspect.

    are you shooting it at 18mm? that would be the "fastest" aperture, which is about f/3.5 if i'm not wrong.

    also, what iso are you using?

    You need to get familiar with your camera.
    Hope this will help

    Hmm.. just checked, I have not been using 18mm all the time .. usual in the 30-35mm range.
    ISO mostly 200

    Use the power of your K-r, bump up the ISO

    For fast kids, you need to set your ISO higher and use a faster lens (f/2.8 or faster) if lighting indoor is not good. If its more important to capture the moment than having a great shot, use the built-in flash.

    then max aperture will be smaller than f/3.5, probably f/4 to f/4.5 region

    in such a case, the max aperture of f/2.4 might help some what, by about a stop.

    alternatively, you can try 50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4.

    Use have to determine if you are having focus issues or shutter speed issues. The latter you can bump up the ISO, use flash, shoot in better lighting and get a faster lens like the DA35/2.4.
    The former will need some anticipation, dulling down of the action, prefocus. Setting the shutter to fire on shutter priority helps as well.

    If you don't have one fast lens to cover this range yet, just go ahead and get one. You won't regret

    Me too

    A little bit sad. I thought this lens's supposed to be a cheap AF prime lens for Pentax. Canon, Nikon, Sony have cheap 50 1.8 AF lens below $200
