  • Purely from a looks point of view, I am not sure about the black leather(ette) It would have looked so much better with a dark brown ala certain FM Golds and Pentax LX gold.
    But then again I am...

  • Cheap looking but not really cheap feeling if other recent lenses are to go by. HD coating, excellent.
    DC motor? Ditto. Weather sealing? Excellent.
    Very flexible zoom range, but only after tests...

  • I have had this camera for a few months now so I thought I would share my experience with you. So, what do I think? On the whole it has been a great buy. Mind you, I certainly did not pay the ...
  • Cheng, Pentax had TAv mode as far back as Dec 2006 with the K10D, which pre-dates the D3 by nine months.
    It is a good idea though, one click to the setting rather than dig into to the menu to set...

  • I find it strange that it is £11,400, yet EUR11,000. At current rates, if you cross the channel and buy it in France you could buy it for effectively £8700 saving you £2300 and still have the...

  • Dont forget the F2.8/4 zooms
    DA* 16-50 F2.8, DA*50-135 F2.8 DA20-40 F2.8-4, DA17-70 F4, DA*60-250 F4.
    All bar the 17-70 are weather sealed as well.

    So with ogl's list, that is 11 lenses that meet...

  • Created user reviews A bit of fun.
    I have just bought this little camera on a whim. Cost? £30 It was in a camera store in Manchester and it comes with everything needed. Why did I buy it? Well I have been looking at a tilt screen ...
  • Excellent and original. I love the puppy in the camera bag.:-)

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    I agree, I have always preferred the colours I get from My Pentax system over the Nikon I have. They are somewhat richer in rendition and more pleasing to the eye, even from RAW. The Nikon just...

  • Okay, I have had the "brick" for over 12 months now, and I have shot several thousand images with it. Firstly, why did I buy it? Well the reasons were, I rather like the looks, it is unique, it is ...
  • The same as the European stores. Business as usual.
    Bowens are a British registered company running under British corporate law.

  • Thanks for that Nick.

  • I spoke to one of the people at a UK branch today. They are unaffected by this. I don't know how this works if your parent company in the US goes under yet the UK arm is unaffected, surely it would...

  • I still have all of my cameras. Just about all still work. Only two have died. One could be repaired (my MZ-50 film camara. The mirror return cog as usual has gone) the other was passed on to me ...
  • I have a fully manual Tamron 90mm F2.5 Macro and the Sigma 105mm Macro. Before I go further, they are both very sharp and worthy of their status. The Tamron however (well the one I have) is only ...
  • yardcoyote, they started during the Gordon Bennett cup in 1900. Ironically USA was Red and Italy only adopted it in 1907.
    Now going with racing colours how about the Orange and Blue Gulf Colours...

  • Focal, the two lenses you mentioned were co-designed with Pentax, and as such are still available on the Pentax mount (as Pentax lenses). Why Tokina dropped these two stunning lenses, and yes they...
