Yes, loved your gallery earlier in the year. Lovely shots from a unique lens.

There's a strong cast in that image ... a plaster cast.

I'll get my coat ...

iudex: This is exactly the lens the Pentax 16-85 mm should have been. Almost the same range, but much faster. The price is extremely high, however.

I don't hang around too much in the rain either. Dust is my main concern.

Well I am the other way around. We must shoot at different times and in different environments.

A stop and a bit faster than the Pentax, but not weather sealed. And about $400 more expensive? Hmmmm ...

shutterbobby: Very impressive-good as the bar is raised for APS C cameras
& how about a Pentax K3 review??

The lack of a K-3 review was a running joke here for several months, but DPR did eventually get around to doing it.

Believe me, I've been shooting Pentax most of that 15 years too.
But now, it has moved out of the realm of rumor ...

You obviously have not seen the recent news about the forthcoming Pentax FF camera!

halfwaythere: Ricoh is slowly driving the Pentax brand off a cliff. I think most of the pentaxians are going to miss the Hoya days.

Nah, Hoya were driving that car rather faster ... ;-)

I bought one but my copy was frustratingly soft. Returned.

Retzius: Does this fix the flopping mirror?

Sadly, no. I had an episode a few days after updating to 1.10 (having never had the problem before). Had to remove the battery to get it to cease.

How?

OK I just didn't see how that discriminated between 'per comment' notifications (which I would like to receive) and 'per thread' notifications (which I would not).

Will try it out.

In reply to:

Betico: I'm happy to read the Jeff's reviews. He writes clear and to the point. I miss his comments about the battery door on his DPreview reviews. On his former website he never missed a comment regarding the bottom of the camera. His comments about the battery doors were very helpful. I guess DPreview does not allow him to write these comments now.

I did read the K-3 review, but was sorely disappointed. I thought after all that time you could have covered the battery door in a lot more detail.
