  • FWIW it's a system that's not exactly brand new and, while 3rd party manufacturers are yet to support it other than through adapters, Pentax/Ricoh certainly seem to have committed to it.

    I use a...

  • Completely agree with the above comments, Pentax have a VERY good professional lineup. They lack a bit at the f2.8 tele end, but that's it, on the prime side of things they are better than canikon...

  • For a 13 yr old, the 100D will be easier to handle due to the small size, and by the time she upgrades other cameras will be around.

    That said the K50 isn't a big camera and is a LOT more capable,...

  • You don't make it clear it's a '2013 released model roundup' - the way it's worded it's definitely a '2013 available roundup.

    That said it's still a really strange selection. Yes the lack of focus...

  • "The Pentax can't match the Nikon for lens choice (particularly when it comes to the more affordable, third-party options), but it's an awful lot of camera for the money and one that may well be...

  • Commented on Nikon D5300 preview

    You'd take a non-weathesealed camera hiking? :o

    If you want to switch to a camera ideal for rough and tough in this part of the market there is really only one choice. Pentax, K50, K5-II or K3 are...

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    Good job they have a world class range of lenses to back it up then isn't it Plastek ;)

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    You mention FF so I'm assuming you'd like FF + 300 or 500.. Well I doubt you'll notice any real difference in general IQ between FF and APS-C and, as such, they do do a 200mm f2.8 (300mm equiv) and...

  • As 6bender says, Pentax lenses are AT LEAST as good as Canon, in the prime sector they have been likened to Leica's - only difference being the Pentax's come out in the sub £1000 bracket. The only...

  • Spot on Jamie, this is actually a VERY good price. It's essentially $600 of software @ $10/month..

    So instead of having to find all that up front, you pay it off over 60 months.. during which...
