  • I guess a dedicated Pentax FF forum would be a very nice and quiet place to hang out if you are going to be amongst the early adopters of the upcoming FF. If you like nice and quiet that is... Ther ...
  • That's one handsome bird Ron! You are lucky to have those flying around. Thanks for posting Chris
  • I do a lot of birding, and there AF is essential. But for landscape, travel, portraits, I went manual focus 3 years ago, with the K5. I wanted the Zeiss ZK lenses for their wonderful IQ, and more ...
  • There was a time when we could all get very exited at a new camera release where the sensor upgrade is concerned. Those days are pretty much over now. The digital camera technology has matured to ...
  • If it's about rock solid IQ, then really, you can have absolute peace of mind with the Sony A7(r). To add to a realistic perspective: the IQ loss (or gain) due to incorrect (or correct) exposure, ...
  • It's nonsense arguing that Apple products in general are not durable, I agree. It's also nonsense however to try to explain the higher cost of Apple products with the argument of higher ...
  • I actually meant the Macbook pro product line. Apple is fine for a first class tablet, or a macbook air, or even an iMac. The price you pay with these product lines is reasonably within the scope ...
  • The A7r takes wonderful images, it has that little extra that gives you the sense that you may never need another camera, IQ wise that is, because the shutter is very loud and the AF may not be ...
  • You are free to believe so as much as you wish to. However, should you ever want to widen your scope to get a more complete picture about Apple and Apple products (meaning the good ánd the bad), ...
  • This "uniqueness" can go both ways though, either giving you a highly integrated and user friendly experience, or, the downside, suffer unduly high costs with machines designed to be cutting edge ...
  • The K3 is not as sharp as the K5IIs, and the images are also noisier at iso values like 400-800. I had the K5IIs and switched to the K3, selling the K5IIs, but the K5IIs is still the best allround ...
  • Ian, you had a spell of bad luck. I just recently bought a silent and powerful enough PC for my photo editing, windows 8.1. Less than half the price of my Macbook pro (dreaded 2011 generation with ...
  • Hi Ron, I actually use the 3X (with waist strap and holster) with my K3 + DA560 combo, and it works very well. My former Lowepro lens bag was not long enough to carry the lens with camera attached. ...
  • What a nice series! And what a great camera in its own right! I recognize the look of my former K5IIs in these images. Second is my favorite. Thanks for posting. Chris
  • No doubt, there is sense in what you have measured. However, just put the loss of ultimate sharpness and micro-contrast against the loss of image sharpness, contrast and color detail that occurs ...
  • To keep things restricted to use of Colormunki Photo on Mac os: I had a routine of workaround that worked up until Mavericks, but no longer on Yosemite. I used Adobe's print to pdf, opened the pdf ...
  • Yes, printing with "Photoshop manages color" works ok. as far as I can tell, color management is switched off properly in the printer driver, at least with the HP and Epson drivers. The issue with ...
  • I had a K5, K5IIs, and now the K3. Not a single issue. I would say though, that it is not very sympathetic to charge for an identical defect occurring again after repair, expired repair warranty ...
  • I would say 1-2 stops at tele focal length is realistic, and a great help in reducing overall shutter speed. What I would like to see improved however in future implementations of the in body SR, ...
  • There's one caveat here: SR does not always work flawlessly, far from it. You can get some very sharp images at slow shutter speeds with the help of SR, but you'll almost certainly also miss some ...
