  • Philip, the AF of the K3 without (1.4tc), and the sigma 500 is quite good, it's just not dead on all the time, like you are describing with the DA560, and I believe that this is inherent in the ...
  • Hi Philip, To be honest, AF-S accuracy is the most important to me. I like to practice tracking, but find 560mm (and certainly with the 1.4tc on) a bit too long anyway. What I am looking for in the ...
  • Hi Philip, As always, stunning images. I have recently made up my mind, helped by your images and the recent significant price drop on the DA560. I will be putting my Sigma 500/4.5 up for sale, and ...
  • I'm not sure about that: I still feel myself, that the 16mp Apsc sony sensor has the edge over the 24 mp Apsc sensor in certain IQ areas and the overall look of the images. I have the 24mp Pentax ...
  • It is. It reminds me of the Pentax K5IIs that I sold, the same kind of look to the files, and also the same headroom for PP'ing without the images breaking up. The Sony A7r takes it a step further ...
  • With the growing possibilities in FF sensor resolution (45mp and 56mp in the works at Sony) it will become inevitable to differentiate where FF cameras are concerned. Pentax will also face this ...
  • Ron, those ears are HUGE! Chris
  • Replied in Hi Dick,
    I shoot mirrorless FF manual focus. So not suited for birding. When eventually a Pentax FF will come with a Sony 45/56mp sensor and crop mode.... but that won't be tomorrow. So Apsc will be the ...
  • the doom and gloom surrounding Pentax has had little to do with FF in itself. Much more it has been fed by a Pentax drifting without a clear course. Pentax is not unique in this regard, other ...
  • I will add to that, that it is absolutely ridiculous to get annoyed by others posting threads about a product that is finally going to see the daylight after more than a decade, and most likely ...
  • Actually, I meant the full shot that is showing the immense background separation. The crop itself has virtually no background definition, but the full shot hints at the background with the ...
  • Immense background separation! It gives these 645Z birding images a look that is distinctly different from the crop camera + 500mm look. Chris
  • I agree with you Dave, FF is generally seen as a film era standard and reasoning towards digital photography, it is often supposed to be an outdated concept, but the fact that the 35mm film camera ...
  • Replied in What if...
    I guess that should be the dslr of the future, at least FF wise. With tomorrows storage and processing facilities, 56mp FF won't be as ridiculous as it sounds now. Only two years ago I thought ...
  • Replied in doh
    that's the world I want to live in! Only the very best of everything. Only one car, the fastest. Only one knife, the sharpest. Only one house, the largest. Only one camera, the Pentax 645Z. Let ...
  • Well, in my book it is still better to crusade in favor of something good that you dream of, than crusading against something, especially if that something doesn't even exist yet.... Chris
  • Hi Nigli, My post was descriptive too, not meant to be personal by any means. We may still take different views and if so, no matter. I personally cannot imagine why anybody would oppose the idea ...
  • Or 64 reasons why I won't go KS-1. Or 89 readons why I won't go 645Z. Really, the stamina of the "we'll shoot the Pentax FF down before it even leaves the prototype stage and we will prove why or ...
  • So, you've tried it, haven't you, I mean FF? Tell me, what's it like?
  • The K-3 will be what it has been since its launch: a very capable crop camera with very good IQ. But with the K-3 I feel resolution on crop sensors had been stretched to the limits of what still ...
