  • The easiest way to test is to go into macro mode and close focus on something, though I wouldn't recommend that since you may damage the focus assembly. Personally I'd just grab this http://www.ama ...
  • Just curious. Do you have a filter on your camera? This error can occur if the lens isn't allowed to extend all the way during focusing.
  • Replied in Samyang 14mm
    I'm with you mate! I think the Samyang is a great choice. Most of the time you don't need auto focus with an ultra wide. When I use that type of lens it's nearly always on a tripod, or it's in a ...
  • That was the rumour... the truth is still out there! It possible that the mirror flop fix was added since jump in the version (1.03 to 1.10) suggests some kind of milestone release. The diffraction ...
  • I feel pretty much the same. I love how the lens has a fun/convenient focal length and is weather resistant, but compared to the IQ on my Tamron 17-50 f2.8 it's a massive letdown. There's ...
  • Replied in K3 does Bhutan
    Thank you for that information! I was always curious about travelling to Bhutan. With that info I'm definitely going to add in a detour to Bhutan on my SE asia trip later next year. Thanks again! :-D
  • OMG double lenshoods... double lenshoods all the waaaaaaaay! What does this mean?! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQSNhk5ICTI
  • Replied in Vivid bunnies!
    Cheers Doug!

    The Tamron 17-50 f2.8. Impressive for such an affordable lens :-)
  • Replied in Vivid bunnies!
    Indeed! For all intents and purposes the same thing :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hou0lU8WMgo&feature=kp
  • Replied in Vivid bunnies!
    Interestingly enough, that shot isn't multi exposure HDR. I shot at ISO100 for max dynamic range and pushed the highlight and shadow sliders in Lightroom. It's amazing the DR you can get out of ...
  • Created discussions Vivid bunnies!
    Here's a shot I took of the Vivid light show bunnies hanging out near the Sydney Harbour Bridge :-) You can also see Luna Park over the other side of the harbour. If you're in Sydney and haven't ...
  • Replied in Brisbane City
    Cheers Dean, I very much like your shot too. Would you mind tell me where you took that shot from? And any other vantage points in Brisbane that are nice? I'd like to check out Brisbane some time ...
  • Replied in Brisbane City
    I personally like the angle you can get from the Luna Park wharf in Sydney. I would also recommend checking out Ilya Genkin's collection of photography spots around Sydney Harbour ( http://www.genk ...
  • I made a fix for this based off some work others have done. Just extract all the files to the same folder as the RAW files and run the SigmaFix.bat file. It should write in the proper focal length ...
  • I always found this to be a strange saying, but it's absolutely true. A Pentax camera doesn't fight you when you want to photograph, it's there to help you without getting in the way. For instance, ...
  • Hmmmm... I think this is a good starter kit http://amzn.com/w/269RRRYFZ02H - K5IIs - Tamron 17-50 f2.8 - Tamron 70-200 f2.8 Total: $1850 You can also add this for ultrawide landscapes if you can ...

    I understand that by complaining about the complainers, I am too participating in the problem. I've kept my mouth shut for so long because of that. But when it's starting to affect my enjoyment of...
