  • Lucky you - Nothing like that in the US, not even close.
  • Created discussions K50 bundle
    FYI, for US folks Costco has the K50 two WR kit lens bundle (18-55 & 50-200) plus a card and case for a net $549.99 after instant $50 rebate.  My daughter should be happy with her Christmas.
  • Hi Steeve, I find lever locks to be better suited than twist locks for rough, cold, wet locations, particularly when gloves are involved.  My 055 CF (replaced an aluminum version) has been in cold ...
  • Viewed carefully at 100%, there are multiple spots above the left wing of the upper bird, though I suppose they could simply be atmospheric anomalies . . . (that look exactly like dust on the ...
  • Nice colors and rendering.  Looks like you've got some dust on your sensor though . . . .
  • Wow - superb timing!
  • Thanks, Chris, for your detailed comments - seems appropriate for a lens at this price point. ;-)  Interesting to hear that f5.6 is not acceptable for you; I have seen some pretty nice shots at ...
  • Replied in Simple Bench
    Half round by the river side - K5IIs & DA* 16-50 Lonely Bench
  • Thank you for this affirmation - others have said the same.  If I cannot achieve this level of IQ ("better than crops") after AF adjustment, that must mean that the my new TC is not a good copy. ...
  • Well, this did result in more accurate AF but the images with the TC and a good copy of the DA* 60-250 appear to be still no better than crops without the TC.  Unfortunately, since it is a very ...
  • Thank you - I will upgrade the FW and try that.
  • Created discussions Pentax 1.4 TC AF issues
    I recently acquired a new 1.4 TC and have not been happy with the output, sufficiently so that I intend to return it. In another thread, asahi man suggested that there may be some AF issues with ...
  • Replied in DA* Seascapes
    Is this a global adjustment?  That is, not specific to the TC?  Where in the production run is the problem fixed (what serial #)?  The notion that Pentax is aware of a problem with part of a ...
  • Replied in DA* Seascapes
    Thank you for your thoughts, asahi man.  This would be true if the only problem with the TC is an AF problem.  The 60-250 needs no AF adjustment and no amount of manual focus brings sharp focus ...
  • 250 x 1.4 = 350
  • I have shot paintings for large reproductions (giclee) and agree with everything John says.  My best results have been inside with two reflected flashes (umbrellas) and a prime at f8.  OP is ...
  • Created discussions DA* Seascapes
    Here's a few from the Oregon coast with the DA* 16-50 and 60-250 on the K5IIs.  Clear and sunny, unusual for November. Twin Rocks Breezy Bright Restraint I also tried out my new copy of the 1.4 ...
  • Huh - I thought you'd actually revived one of the regular Challenges, one of the pleasures of this group that faded away a few years back . . .
  • Nicely done, Steeve.  Your descriptions and comments really add to the beautiful photos.  Good luck with this project - I hope you have many sales.
  • Nice shooting with the 43.  The "texture" of the 3 guys in the first shoot is really interesting, particularly in comparison with the woman in white.
