  • I also voted for the 100D, but only just. The fact that you can't see the AF points in the Pentax K-500's viewfinder is also quite stupid. But other than that, it's a good camera.
  • I don't really put much value in these polls, but I was curious as to how Pentax was doing, so I voted for the K-3 (only way to see the results is to vote). I like seeing it get so many votes, and...

  • The Lumia certainly is impressive for a smartphone. However, the Canon still is a better camera. It seems to retain more dynamic range and has more accurate colors. But apart from that, also...

  • Just to clarify: what do you mean when you say the AF is "hunting"?

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 preview

    Well, the D7100 is not entirely comparable with the K-3. Build quality is inferior, and its buffer is only a fraction of that in the K-3, which could be a big thing. And it doesn't feature an AA...

  • I like understated and functional. I have a NAD stereo that is exactly that. But I wouldn't call this camera understated in any way. Functional, maybe, but understated? I don't see it.
  • I have had 2 samples of the 17-70. The first one also had these autofocus problems. Esp. after 50mm, it would sometimes jump back and forth between 2 points for a while, then either give up or...
