  • Hello Nigli, That's an interesting effect with a different twist, well done! Back in the film days, it was known for 'Model' photographers to use a softening effect, usually petrol-based jelly ...
  • Richard, with all due respect, you're full of crap. What a mealy-mouthed excuse for an explanation! You're not helping with a solution, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM! DPR hates and has always hated Pentax. ...
  • Yep, I believe it mainly finds its way in during lens changes. After 'tightening up' my lens-changing system and giving the rear of the lens I'm about to mount a quick blast with the rocket ...
  • Hello Jeff, I believe there are currently 5 tilt/shift lenses available for K-mount, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 80mm and 90mm. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52870544 Most were found on (either) B&H, ...
  • Hello All, @ Dale, thanks for the kind words, glad this list is useful! @ yurstury, I appreciate the heads up, I just saw the Sigma announcement myself. I'm adding it to the list (no price yet) but ...
  • Here's a list I posted on another Forum, which (apparently) can't be directly linked from DPR. My sources are B+H, Adorama and Amazon, for availability, the first two outlets for prices, so I guess ...
  • Created discussions K-3 Poll Win- The Reality
    With the recent poll win for the K-3, it's a fine time to be a Pentaxian. Many glowing reviews, plaudits from unlikely places, kind comments about the innovative products from small-market makers ...
  • Well, my piddling complaints certainly pale in comparison with the learned judgements presented so far on this thread. The poll results and lack of a full review don't matter because; Nobody needs ...
  • 1) Yes. @) No, not any more than the general consensus of 28 other reviews will. Or, this thread, for that matter. If you want a fair, unbiased or objective review, go elsewhere. Perhaps. if enough ...
  • Let's just hold on here... First off, it's been mentioned a few times that DPR was kind enough to include the K-3 in the poll, as if that alone was proof of their unblemished objectivity. Hmmmm. Th ...
  • Actually, the K-3 is slipping from a high of 33.1% on 12/22/2013 at 3:41pm. At that time the D7100 was at 15.2%, the 70D @ 15.9% and the Df 15.3%, with 5648 votes cast. But it's still nearly double ...
  • Nice try, Doug, but it doesn't fly. I post quite a bit, am very active, contribute when I can and have many photos posted also. But not here. I've been browsing DPR for quite a while, and check in ...
  • For me, and I'll bet many others, it's not a question of validation, it's about a long-omitted DPR reaction; Respect. Equal treatment, fair treatment, a sign that the playing field is now level. ...
  • Replied in Nope
    "So do Pentax, DA* lines are ridiculously overpriced at the moment. FA LTD used to be affordable, Canikon has more range of affordable primes." Posted by Azzy. Where do you find that? While it's ...
  • Hello David, You might look into the new DA 50mm f/1.8, the second 'plastic fantastic' lens from Pentax (the first is the DA 35mm f/2.4AL). I've had the 35mm for a couple of years and the 50mm for ...
  • Hello David, Since you can't mail the camera until tomorrow anyway, why not throw the battery on the charger?If my camera read 'battery depleted' I'd do that, regardless of what the battery icon or ...
