  • In 2004 I bought the Sony DSC-V1. It is a camera very much like the Fuji X10 that I bought in 2013 to replace it though it is still working. It came with a superb Zeiss Sonnar x4 f2.8-4 34-136 ff ...
  • Nice and interesting shot. Thank for posting. I will try this setting on my X-S1 and X10.
  • I have the X-S1 and i like it. Yet I have found that with my Pentax K30 (now replaced by the K50 which is basically the same camera) and Pentax zoom DA 18-135, I have a weather resistant ...
  • Cannot speak for the Sigma, but I have the Pentax Da 18-135 WR. It is very compact and pleasant to use. It is my travel lens. It is good from 18 to 70, very good from 21 to 60. Better than the Da ...
  • I understand you have the 18-55 kit lens. So both the 35 and 50 are within your lens reach, and you want a prime for better sharpness and faster aperture, either for bokeh or low light. I have a FA ...
  • I still have my Ist-DS which I keep in my holiday flat with the 18-55 on it and an old SMC M 50mm f2 from the film era. Use it from time to time, but more as a spare than anything else. Bought it ...
  • nice photos, I admire your skills.
  • I wonder if in the 16th century Michelangelo and Rafael had this kind of debate about the makers of their brushes. Anyway, today, nobody worries anymore about the brushes used by Michelangelo when ...
  • I use 8 or 16 GB class 10 sd cards from transcend or sandisk. I never had trouble with them and they are quite cheap. Be careful if you want to shoot raw with the X-S1: it has a very special EXR ...
  • The K50 has a polycarbonate box around a stainless steel chassis. This has been the way most Pentax dslr are built since the istd.... 10 years ago. Polycarbonate is not a cheap plastic: it is used ...
  • I have both Fuji X-S1 and  X10 and Pentax K30. The Fuji are good for p&s compacts, but the APS-C 16mp sensor of the Pentax K30, K50, K5, aso, is ways better. The Pentax jpegs can be customized to ...
  • IMO the 18-135 WR is a good lens and doesnt deserve the bashing around by some users. People may not like this lens or find it unappropriate for them. But they must understand that a 7x compact ...
  • I have a K30, which is very close to the K50, the only difference seems to be the styling odf the body. I have quite a bunch of pentax glass, so do my son on his K5. For travel, the K50/K30 are ...
  • I have had my X10 for nearly 2 years now and I experienced this from time to time. I have found that when the X10 doesnt start when turning the zoom, there is an easy way to override this problem: ...
  • I usually shoot only jpeg. I then check on the camera if the image is up to my expectations. If I feel the scene is difficult (ie poor lighting or high contrasts, or I dont like the jpeg output), I ...
  • I did on k30. The main issue is that the preview on the back lcd is too small. It is only once you have the jpeg on the computer that you can  check whether you have  chosen the right settings.
  • I agree. I have it, and it is  very convenient for outdoors shooting. Took only this lens on holidays since I have it. Very sharp in the center, but soft on the borders. Built like a tank and very ...
  • Laith, you seem to worry a lot about sharpness. I presently use a k30 (=k50 in a different body), my son has a k5. We both have noticed that the 16mp sensor  outperforms most zoom lenses: if you ...
  • I have the 18-55, the 50-200 and the 18- 135. The 18-135 is my favorite: as good IQ as the two other, in one WR lens: no need to carry an extra lens, neither to change lenses in dusty or wet ...
  • The two zooms wr kit is a good option to start with. But IMO, you should have a look at the 18-135 wr, it doesnt shine in tests reviews, but it is praised by many pentaxians. Very sharp in the ...
