  • Nice speculations but i dont see it happening in an ovf slr design. A genuine Pentax split screen would be doable, nice and realistic. Another realistic option would be to have focus confirmation ...
  • I used a focusing screen cut from an old film body on a k50. I never noticed any interference with autofocusing. Spot mettering was a tad off but it could be compensated. I dont have the k50 ...
  • Well probably, current apsc bodies have interchangeable focusing screens and its easy to do at home provided you acquire the appropriate screen. Some are currently produced and sold by suppliers ...
  • I would also suggest the samyang 85 1.4 if manual focusing is an option - very fine lens at very little investment. But for convenience and a wider range of usability i strongly suggest the 50 ...
  • It stands for some bugs fixed and some new ones introduced?
  • Replied in K5 used or....
    If the k5 is anything like the k30/50 as far as focusing is concerned, then it will most definitely NOT focus as well as a k5iis in any lighting conditions which are less than ideal. I've been ...
  • Replied in K5 used or....
    For focusing's sake just get a k5ii/k5iis/ks2/k3 and spare yourself from certaint frustrations and us from another "why I'm selling my pentax gear" thread. Good lenses (as well as bad ones) need ...
  • I dont have a k3 or xt1, but i do have a k5iis and an xe1. My humble opinion is that the sensor in the k5iis is better with very flexible raw output. I gave up shooting raw with the fuji and using ...
  • Thank you for the comment. I just use a lens hood and keep the camera facing down when not shooting. But if some drops get on the front element they don really leave a critical mark on the image ...
  • Sorry Dave, i was under the impression LDBOK further up in the thread was considering upgrading his 18 55 wr to the new kit lens and my comment was aimed rather at him - sorry for the confusion. Ot ...
  • True, never seen a useful review from digitalrev tv but every once in a while (once every couple of years maybe) if i happen to have too much free time and am utterly bored i find them entertaining...
  • Well frankly i also had a k30 and k50 which probably have the same focusing modules as the original k5. Honestly i think they are crap at focusing in less than ideal light. Hence i also wanted to ...
  • I dont get a bad impression about the lens from the review. On the contrary - quite positive. Obviously its a competent kit lens and the reviewer said it is better than the previous kit lens. But ...
  • Thanks :) I'm very impressed by the 16-85. it's at least on par with the da* 16-50 i used to have (and it was a very good copy) at same apertures, so if you dont need a 2.8 zoom the 16-85 is a ...
  • Without having read all replies but since i changed a whole lot of cameras in the past three years my experience is as follows. A k5iis would have solved most if not all your focusing issues with ...
  • Thanks guys
  • Created photos 16-85 in the rain
    PPed to my liking
  • If it is important to you, keep in mind that the ks2 mysteriously omits built in wireless flash capability. Also top shutter speed on the k5iis is 1/8000 vs 1/6000 on the ks2. I personally have a ...
  • Replied in Wedding 16-85
    Great shots Dean. I got my 16-85 last friday and im thoroughly impressed with the optics. Just need to fidle some more with af fine tuning but what a great performer this lens is!
  • I want to note that i dont use live view at all and i shoot raw only. In such a situation it may or may not lock focus. Usually its 1 or 2 seconds till locks or gives up. The thing is that the ...
