vharwood: Went in to store today to check out this lens. (Tamron 70 200) Neither I nor the salesman could get it to achieve focus. He finally told me, he had had other complaints about this lens. Does anyone have any experience with this lens and a Nikon camera. We tried it on a D 610 but he said complaints had been with a variety of bodies.??

If you are using a Nikon body that does not possess AF motor (D40x, D3000, D5000) or similar series you will not have focus if your Lens does not support compatibility with Nikon's AF-S system. Either that or simply you've had the AF turned off on either the body switch or the lens switch. Hope that helps

davids8560: Could somebody like Ansel Adams churn out better photos with something like a SL1 or K-50, or even a XZ-2, than a complete and total novice with a D610?

Skill will always trump equipment

guido1953: Before anyone buys Pentax, please do a google search for "Pentax SDM motor
problems". Know what you are getting into before you spend your hard earned
money.

How many lenses are SDM guido1953 ? LOL
3 million compatible lenses and the few SDM focus motors that cost you some money are making you troll the brand. Typical.

In reply to:

dousanmiaography: Seriously, what is the difference between K-5 and K-5II? Every single specification are the same.

The removal of an anti-aliasing filter. this allows for sharper images in the II but sacrifices the tendency to produce moire.

GZun: I’m new to photography, but equally curios as thirsty to learn. Here is my question: If there is a relation between pixel size and efficiency, why a larger sensor with less pixels is more desirably, I would venture into thinking glass to sensor size ratio be a more practical ratio independent of pixel count, price considered of course, considering that over time pixel technology is getting better and better. Is there a magical size a sensor should be?. I think this new compacts can give us more light and IQ as oppose to zoom….

The design of smaller lenses is expensive because the margin for error is higher, however the cost of high quality glass grows as you make lenses larger. So not an easy equation to balance. In the end small lenses will win because sensor development progresses alot faster than lens tech.

Of course this is art... "art is act of taking an emotion of your own and evoking that emotion in another through means of expression."

some art is painful but is still worthy of praise.

rrr_hhh: No fully articulated LCD, plenty of features I don't need, but 100 gr. more than the 5D, I'm really deceived. I want a full fame but in a lighter body !
I don't need the fast shooting abilities, I don't need the weather sealing, but I need a lighter body that I can wear with me all the day !!

When will Canon stop offering those monster bodies ? When will they understand the needs of the hicking and travelling photographers ?

What a deception !! I'm now seriously considering selling all my Canon gear. Really I don't understand why Canon always has to make heavier and heavier gear : come on Canon, the population is getting older and photographers are getting even older; with our used backs and our used necks, we need lighter cameras, not heavier ones, we need mobility, not rock heavy cameras. We need a full frame with great IQ, but with the weight of a D60 or of a D600. I can't believed they have renounced to one of the biggest advantage of the 5D and made it even heavier !

Pentax K-5 is VERY capable in high ISO. It ranks as high as any other APS-C currently.

In reply to:

FYLin: how does a 16 megapixel sensor LIMIT it to only 720p?!?!? 720p is only 0.7MP and 1080p is only 2.1MP!

sensor output of resolution is correct but your forgetting framerate and processing capability... both of which are completely different aspects. that is where the limitations lie. I do believe that like most manufacturers, this is purposely being limited by firmware, not hardware.
