  • Replied in Nice looking!
    Very Stylish.  Let's hope the function matches.
  • In some respects, the K-50 is a step up from the K-5.  It's CDAF focus works better than that on the K-5.  It also has focus peaking, which for me is a must-have feature.  These are a couple ...
  • In my opinion, that's an even better price than what they had on K-01 when it was discontinued.  I paid $100 more than that, without any of the accessories and thought it was a good price.  I've ...
  • Really, that's the only reason for asp-c?  Cost has nothing to do with it? Image quality is not affected by it?  Funny, that size/weight doesn't even enter my mind.  I go to the gym every day and ...
  • Have you considered that with many of us, our needs have changed after we invested in Pentax and that we would rather use a Pentax full frame than go through the process of selling our equipment ...
  • Pentax knows that they have to be successful with the masses before they can be successful with the pros.  I want advance cameras, even a full frame, as much as the next guy, but we in this forum ...
  • Having great video is not a bad thing.  You can always ignore the feature.  Having inferior video means that Pentax will not sell as many cameras as it could with great video.  Many of us use both ...
  • We all make mistakes.  In this instance, I guess the question is, when is it a mistake and when is it a result the photographer was satisfied with?   This is art, isn't it?
  • My favorite image of all that I've taken is equally soft.   An image can leave a variety of impressions and being tack sharp is not a requirement for many of them.
  • In that case, why did they say it didn't live up to expectations?   Surely, they must expect it to operate slower in more challenging situations, unless there are other high speed cameras that ...
  • Replied in K-50 or K-5 II
    Having recently made this same decision, I went with the K-50 because I really wanted the Focus Peaking feature and the better video.   You should look at the difference in features and choose the ...
  • I didn't say "better".  I said I preferred it and that it was faster and less complicated to implement. For me, not at all.  I completely understand how another can have a different opinion and I ...
  • This is very easy with the front e-dial.  It would take about 1 second.  The whole process is much faster than using the compare feature to get both up on the screen at the same time.  I not only ...
  • Yes, that is the page where it describes how to enlarge an image and rotate through them quickly.  In fact, I discovered this without reading the manual.  It was very intuitive and simple to ...
  • I grabbed my K-R, since I had never used this feature.  After going through it, I prefer how it works with the K-50.   When checking for focus (or anything else) I don't need them side by side to ...
  • ...unless it is something different from what I'm thinking. It's not called "compare" in the manual, but is described as an option when viewing a magnified image during playback.  I can definitely ...
  • I picked up a cheapo on ebay just to try one out and it worked great.  I couldn't tell you which one it is, since they all look about the same.  When using it, I tend to use my thumb to push the ...
  • I use my k-01 with a wrist strap.  They were made for each other and it's my favorite shooting set-up for feel, control and balance.  I also have a k-50 and always choose the k01 when doing ...
  • The biggest difference is in the reaction you get from people.  When shooting with my white model, a lot more people would ask what kind of camera I it is.  In addition, the k01 doesn't look like ...
  • Ding...Ding,  we have a winner!
