  • Some mechanical magnification in the optical view finder for crop mode to keep some room around the frame for manual focus ? That would be great to see what's in AND out the frame, especially when ...
  • That's exactly why I added a comment on Ricoh Imaging website about a "scripting camera" with open API : for Lightroom, GIMP/gphoto, ... but also for on board customisation ! http://community.us.ri ...
  • If you don't want to switch yet to Pentax, in order to save some bucks you should also consider the classic Canon 400mm L 5.6 : you'll find out in this comparison why it's still one of the best ...
  • Au temps pour moi ! I probably made the mistake : I remember now the 2000mm at Sophic :) I hope you'll be able to keep this gem long enough to be in better luck and to do it honor ! Anyway, your ...
  • Replied in Birds of Prey
    Amazing pictures as usual ! Thanks for sharing your friends portraits Arijit
  • Nice shots. The 3rd for me !
  • I'm sad to see you have to sell this amazing lens especially after seeing your results with it. I hope you'll find someone interested : your shots gave it justice, but it seems demanding and ...
  • We need faster accurate AF and faster AF lenses : right! To do that I see only 4 points : 1. optimise the distribution of moving elements in lenses and improve the in-lens motors 2. optimise ...

    I didn't know Katzeye made such custom focus screen. That kind of overlay would be great! I already shoot for square but it's not as convenient without these guides. If I could put it ON / OFF ...
  • Hello Justin I'd be glad if Pentax could replace all these lenses and sell it at the price you could get them a few years ago. :) I guess the production would be too risky now : higher price and ...
  • Replied in Thinking Crop
    I think it could be also interesting for DA lenses on full frame: we should see what's about to come in the frame! Just like on MF...
  • I hope P/R will not do this mistake : what shall we do with our F/FA lenses ? Some of them are still amazing and won't be replaced anytime soon ... I'll even get the F 28-105 a try on the FF if I can.
  • WOW. Amazing as usual ! But it's quite unusual to see someone barefoot at such exibitions ;) A great show if it was as good as your pictures.
  • If you expect some collaboration between Pentax or Sony and Canon - to " incorporate the best of the 645Z and 1DX TOGETHER " - I guess you'll have to wait ... longer than us for the Pentax FF ;) Lo ...
  • I don't understand why we(re using the word "trolling" in this case. Especially as you're mainly sharing lot of good stuff with us on the forum, and you recognised that you find the 6D usefull for ...
  • I tried once with the k-5, for the fun, as I had no time to settle properly but the results are soso (heavy crop to get some details) : http://fredg.zenfolio.com/p503235613/h382d5a19#h28c890d3 http ...
  • Hello ! Welcome to the Pentax DSLR forum! and sorry for the fanboy's digressions : that won't help to get the job done, but I guess you have some fun like that on DPR's Canon forums ;) To answer ...
  • At 1/125 sec, I guess really good tripod and head were needed! Hand holding is possible only with good light and speed, when you can't do otherwise. ;)
  • WOW. Nicely rendered ... I love birds and I guess it must be even better to see it on the wall ! On the other hand, I really like how you used this amazing lens for landscape http://download.heime. ...
  • Replied in Strange.....
    No manufacturer can put everything in a small camera :) Well, we're all trying to imagine what innovative and ground breaking technology (and/or out of the box thinking) Pentax/Ricoh will bring ...
