Question about Pentax *ist D Digital Camera
I have a problem with 2 month old *ist digital. Popping up the on camera flash kills the battery, on new batteries of several types. Putting the flash down and turning the camera on and off brings the battery back to its original full charge condition. Anybody have ideas, I have read something about this problem somewhere on the forum before. Does anyone know anything about the new Tamron XR 3.5-6.3 28/300 LD Lens, is it of high quality and resolution. It seems very light and small for its power

According to Pentax, the pop up flash does greatly reduce battery life. So, if you want them to last longer, use an external flash. The built-in flash is too low powered an too prone to produce red eyes to be of much use anyway. Any lens that goes from 28-300 is going to be much less sharp than one with a shorter zoom range, even if the lens designer uses such heroic measures as aspherical elements and LD glass. Consider the Tokina AT-X 24-200mm f/3.5-5.6 lens as a very good alternative to the Tamron.
