    When the K5 came out, I loved the quiet shutter. I'm a swimsuit and glamour photographer and little did I know, that this quiet shutter would not go well with my models. They all said they liked my...
  • When I first bought my K5, I had the problem where the mirror kept flapping open repeatedly. It wouldn't happen often, but when I was shooting a wedding, then it went crazy. I could only stop it...
  • Replied in Have a pz-1
    The autofocus was supposedly better, but I couldn't detect any major improvements. The slanted back was a novel idea, but I just hated the fact that the MZ-S sacrificed all the great features that...
  • Replied in Have a pz-1
    Yup, I loved mine too. Great camera. I ended up selling it on ebay many years ago.
  • I don't remember ever using the 1/8000 shutter, but it was nice to know that it was there if I needed it. I really did love that camera. It was the one of their best. I just couldn't figure out why...
  • I too had the *IST D at the same time as my PZ-1p. I guess I just wasn't shooting much low light then to notice the differences between the two cameras. I just knew that I missed all those great...
  • You know, now that you mention it, I can't remember having low light issues with the PZ-1p. Funny the things I took for granted with that great camera............
  • Drummercam, I LOVED having the off placement hotshoe. And yes, you could use both the pop up and shoe mount for contrast control flash. I thought that placement was SOOOOO much better. And what was...
  • I had the exact same thing happen to me to my power zoom FA* 28-70mm F2.8 lens when I was doing a fashion shoot in Romania. I was shooting with some fashion models in the small town of Baicoi and I...
  • Yeah, I didn't find it funny either.........
  • I saw this. Thought I'd share with all of you. Brian http://www.thephoblographer.com/2013/05/11/weekend-humor-pentax-finally-enters-the-full-frame-market/
  • Just had mine fixed after purchasing in 2007. To my horror, they (C.R.I.S.) fixed the motor and everything, but now, when I use the lens, the images are not sharp. At first I thought it was just...
  • There is one for sale at KEH right now. You might want to grab it while you can.   http://www.keh.com/camera/Pentax-Autofocus-Fixed-Focal-Length-Lenses/1/sku-AP06999045048N?r=FE
  • There is an 85mm soft focus at KEH right now. You better grab it! http://www.keh.com/camera/Pentax-Autofocus-Fixed-Focal-Length-Lenses/1/sku-AP06999045048N?r=FE
  • Those photos were GREAT! Thanks for sharing. Yes, it's true that having only one focal length is limiting sometimes. That's probably why they offered it as a 28mm lens as well.
  • Replied in KEH Question
    Well, speaking from my own experience, I've sold many items to KEH over the years. And one time, they actually offered me $10 more on an item that I thought already was a fair price for what I was...
  • Those are beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I remember that Pentax also had the 28mm version too. I ended up chosing the 85mm since I mostly do glamour and portrait work. So I didn't think a soft...
  • Thanks for the welcome! Just for fun, I went to the KEH website to get their online quote on what they would give me for this lens. I was surprised considering how long ago I bought it, that based...
  • You're right. I did love it when I was using it and it does create an effect that is different from the digital look. I should take it out again and celebrate it's uniqueness. Thanks for your input.
  • Created discussions Pentax 85mm soft focus lens
    Hi everyone. I just joined DP Review. I want to ask my fellow Penatxians a question. Back in the days of film, I bought the 85mm soft focus F2.8 lens. Ever since Pentax came out with the built in...
