  • Then make peace with the frustrations or do what I'm doing, move on.  I'm switching to Fuji.  Fortunately this is a competitive industry and there are options for us consumers.
  • Strength of Pentax lenses is that they work with Pentax bodies.  IMO, Pentax bodies are great.  Pentax's decision to keep the mount the same, therefore opening the field to legacy lenses is a ...
  • Good for you.  Comparing Apple and Oranges. I like banana myself and saved $0.02.
  • With some work you can get everything to work properly, there's no doubt about that.  But, if like me, you are fanatical about a clean system with as little bloatware, bugs and glitches as ...
  • That's what I do also with each and every machine.  Can't stand bloatware.
  • Switching SATA setting in BIOS will normally crash the OS install in my experience.  Best thing to do is set to AHCI then fresh install of OS to SSD.
  • Never cared for Win 8/8.1 and still don't.  No no please I don't need to be converted thanks.  Win 10 do look more promising.  This is in line with my own belief that every other MS OS is good ...
  • Is the gimmick selling cameras?  I don't think so.  One only need to look at their market position compared to the others.  I would rather buy into a system whose reputation is great lenses, ...
  • Replied in Trip West
    Some very nice pics.  Zion and that area of the world is one of my favourite places to visit.
  • Replied in 3 choices !!!
    IPS screens are the way to go.  27" is nice.  Don't hesitate to spend money on the screen, your eyes will see and thank you everytime you look at it.  Time to do your research and googling.  I ...
  • Replied in 3 choices !!!
    I agree. My choice would be 3, 2, and 1.  Why? 3 provides the greatest customization and flexibility but requires some elbow grease.  It's not difficult and you'll learn a lot.  Best value for ...
  • Pentax needs customers.  Start by keeping their current customers happy while at the same time reach out to potential customers.  So in that respect, it would be good for them to meet the needs of ...
  • Replied in K 5IIs and...
    Interesting that the camera with more stuff (K 5II) is more expensive than the identical camera minus 1 feature (K 5IIs).
  • Producing a good/great lens just makes more economic sense.  A lens' life is many years, decades even where as a body needs to be replace every few years.  At most a lens only needs a refresh once ...
  • For me it's lenses, then FF.  They should do both but there's no use introducing a FF body while SDM is buggy.  For myself a good AF lens is most important as my eyesight makes manual focusing a ...
  • I disagree, some have called it "bottleneck" while others "bottlenecks".  Fisticuffs coming soon.
  • Agree with what others have said. It's the USB port. Even though USB 2.0 in "theory" is much much higher than 30 MB/s, real life implementation is around 30 MB/s. Implementation trumps theory. If ...
  • Seems to me the OP is either 1) a TROLL or 2) desperate for attention, probably a little of both.  Why he doesn't post in specific forums for Sony, Canon, Nikon, Samsung or what have you is quite ...
  • As a Linn Sondek owner and avid audiophile myself I know.  Problem is my hobbies are damn expensive; audio, photography, cigars, backpacking....
  • I agree with Richard, supply far outstrip the demand.  Film "may" become to photography what the LP is to audio.  A niche market at best but most likely just a novelty.
