  • Thanks for the link Ron.  Dang, it would be nice if they spread the sensitive points out a bit.  It sort of defeats the benefit of extra points if you can't use them.  I mean, if you're shooting ...
  • Created discussions Autofocus point question
    Using a K3 and 85 set at 1.4 taking studio shots of motionless people with a focus point selected on the outer edge of the frame, results in out of focus shots at least 80% of the time.  I'm ...
  • My criticism isn't the design of your poll, just that volunteer participation in polling cannot be even close to accurate.  What the actual percentages are, I have no idea, and I still won't at ...
  • In no way can the results of this poll be considered even close to accurate. First, it's a known fact that those with a problem are far more likely to go out of their way to complain and to ...
  • What he says, makes quite a bit of sense if you're a pro.  However, the negatives he states for owning Pentax are not so important to most non-pros.  If you're a consumer who wants a great camera ...
  • Could you define "unbalanced weakness"? I have no idea what that means and I'd like to check my lenses.
  • Are you complaining that offering cameras in multiple colors is a negative thing?
  • Camera bodies are not investments, unless you are making money off your photos, and even then you have to be good enough to take advantage of it.  The bodies depreciate very rapidly. If you're ...
  • This is why it's a version of a K3, and not a K4.  It would not have been very logical to put out a major upgrade on the top crop sensor in the lineup, just before coming out with their first FF. ...
  • I would have guessed that no one here thought that everyone wanted a full frame.  I don't believe I saw a post where someone predicted that no other camera would be wanted once the FF was out. ...
  • I think you are likely correct.  Major changes would like justify a new model name, not just an addendum (II).
  • Software can do a lot to save a photo. Take a look at this video if you wan to see an extreme example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-GbuXU8YMQ However, if the shooting situation is challenging, ...
  • Replied in salvage
    All good points. As you said, the real benefit comes when the situation isn't ideal.  When I'm in a dark church, with a no-flash policy, I really crave an extra stop - frequently.  I also find ...
  • I would say that Pentax's true trademark has been to make all new dslr camera bodies compatible with every lens they ever made for the K mount. Add in image stabilization that works on every body ...
  • I also got my first in '77.  It was a Pentax ME.  I did use a Spotmatic for a few years in college, but it wasn't mine. First digital was the Pentax DS
  • It's now 10th on the list to go along with the K3.
  • I can't imagine that Pentax will think that way.  Their goal is to undermine the competition, not preserve their older technology.  They will put in the best sensor they can get at the price point ...
  • Many of us don't buy FF for advantages under ideal conditions.  We want them for when the lighting is poor or another situation that challenges the photographer. Situations that requires very ...
  • When comparing ISO 3200 and above, I was under the impression that the 12 MP Sony a7s was the best.  However, I'd prefer more resolution than 12 MP, so that is why something in the 20s seems like ...
  • What I want is the highest IQ I can get at the ISOs I commonly shoot at.  Since my ISO is very often 3200 and above, I much prefer a sensor that gives me the best IQ in those ranges. I have no ...
