  • This may be a dilemma that Pentax is facing. I bought a mirrorless Sony A7r myself, and was with a friend recently who has a Canon 5D with the L-lenses. After only using the Sony for two weeks, I ...
  • If a Pentax FF camera was nearing announcement, let's say Photokina, we would have had at least sóme rumors by now. Instead of rumors there is an absolute silence on all fronts. My guess, alas, is ...
  • There is also a slightly more affordable Voigtlander K to nex adapter, that is extremely well made. It lacks the Aperture ring of the Novoflex, but who needs that when the Fa ltd's have their own ...
  • Replied in Pentax 645 Z
    Fantastic!
  • No issue for me, but my longest lens on the A7r is 85mm Not noticed possible downsides yet. The benefit of smaller files is considerable, although I feel Sony should really just give the A7r user ...
  • Yikes, was this with the latest firmware 1.10? Chris
  • Using a white balance grey card, and setting the white balance with the picker in CO1, it can be as much as 200 higher than the preset auto white balance, especially in bright and sunny daylight. ...
  • I am (or was) more or less in the same boat as you, difference being that invested in Zeiss ZK lenses (28, 35, 50, 85) that have no AF anyway, otherwise I would probably still be looking out for ...
  • I think this whole topic is less of an issue for RAW shooters than it is for those who rely on the straight OOC jpeg results and want the camera to deliver an end result. This whole discussion ...
  • Yes! Their flight especially is a delight to watch, including the high pitched silver sound. Chris
  • I understand that, and I am not at all a high ISO shooter, nor do I use live view at all or shoot video with my K3. I would have greatly preferred the emphasis on color reproduction instead of ...
  • I did more or less the same just recently. I actually went a step further with some advance planning. I switched from Olympus because 4/3 was at its end and the DA 560mm was on the Pentax roadmap ...
  • It's great to be back at 35mm FF with 28/35/50/85, even MF, but I'm now firmly rooted in the digital age. I plan to shoot with the A7r for a very long time, but will still look out with interest ...
  • Isn't this firmware update supposed to also fix the mirror overrun problems?
  • This compressed DR, as I remember, was very visible on the Pentax K5/K5IIs at iso 80, that features a DR of over 14,1 stops per DxO at this setting, but the images always needed quite a bit of ...
  • Common sense would dictate that a signal with a wider range of light that reaches the sensor, is in itself a good thing. But as I understand from these discussions, it isn't because the bayer ...
  • Replied in CCD vs. CMOS
    I tend to agree. The Sony sensored K5/K5IIs/K3 tend to look slightly too cool at default WB, also in third party raw converters. A camera that is still praised for its color reproduction, the CCD ...
  • Hi Dave, Actually, I'm a bit over the top saying the EVF on the Sony A7 is terrible, certainly when comparing to other or older EVF's, excluding Fuji's new EVF no doubt. Fact remains though, that ...
  • Thanks! That's another great thing about this Sony A-x line (apart from the ability to use a multitude of lenses): Sony is building a line-up around different FF sensors that are targeted at ...
  • Thanks Rod, I certainly will. And don't forget the Pentax FF, when and if it materializes with some good lenses, especially wides. Having seen what the 36mp Sony sensor can do now, I do hope they ...
