  • It's a riddle I haven't quite resolved - Pentax users give themselves a cheapo reputation, yet will pay more for legacy and used glass than other brands (as established in a recent thread on the ...
  • You'll find that a lot of Pentax users are Germans. I find that interesting because people always say that Germans know something about engineering. Well there's good news for you in that the 645Z ...
  • Replied in K-S1: my take
    A branch of a company headquartered in Portland, OR, USA. It would be hard to think that they haven't given a lot of thought to how this might be made to appeal to the American market. Combined ...
  • Replied in K-S1: my take
    It's funny how in the context of the K-01 and K-S1, people talk about "industrial design" whereas the rest of the time, they just say the cameras are great to hold and operate. It's almost as ...
  • I don't know about Adorama, but sometimes deals only show at the checkout stage rather than the basket stage. Is there a checkout stage with Adorama before the transaction is final? Generally ...
  • Yes. Sigma, Tamron, Samyang and many other companies make lenses and teleconverters for Pentax. Also, anything mounted on the front of a lens is compatible across brands (so long as it is ...

  • It's interesting that the fact that something IS happening is causing you to respond in this way rather than something NOT happening. It sounds almost like you have a personal gripe about lesser ...
  • Replied in K-S1: my take
    I'm not sure what you mean by video, as the K-S1 does video, and the way the interface is constructed, it suggests you can do video and the mode, if the combination works, is whatever you have ...
  • Replied in K-S1: my take
    I agree that the grip remains controversial. Overall though, I don't think you can measure the camera in terms of what's added or removed. It's a completely new interface that makes it EASIER to ...
  • Replied in Ratings
    FWIW, pixel-peeper users are rating the Pentax at 4.68 and the Nikon at 4.11
  • Replied in K-S1: my take
    They just need to make one for girls. Perfect 16th birthday/prom gift. I think the white, cotton beige, dusk gold and dawn purple ones could appeal to that group. Sunset orange could work for a ...
  • Replied in K-S1: my take
    The K-3. I believe they deleted all threads complaining about it. After a few weeks, when the novelty of the K-3 had worn off, they fixed it. Hence, it appeared that there was no interest at all ...
  • Replied in K-S1: my take
    More likely, they've just disabled the hit counter for the Pentax product again. They've done this before.
  • Replied in K-S1: my take
    You'll find that the K-30 and K-50 don't have it on the lever.
  • Replied in K-S1: my take
    I believe that's how it works. Yup, although remember it's only the flagships that have that (but it's assignable to the Fx button on the K-30/50).
  • Created discussions K-S1: my take
    I think this is a fantastic camera that will really shake up the market. There. I've said it. I'm on the record and you can beat me with that soundbite later if I'm wrong. For those that want the ...
  • There's a bit of blah over the target demographic in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BU3QGowHiVE&list=UUD_djFZ1d24FKaUM237yjew
  • That's how I read it. Well, they do share the same kind of Koolaid aesthetic. I wonder if we'll ever really know how the K-01 came about. If you bought a Q as your first camera, what would you see ...
  • Replied in That sensor
    If it's the same one as the A3000, it will have more or less the same performance over the whole picture as the K-30/K-50/K-500 (per DxoMark score). So you get a bit more croppability and slightly ...
