  • Haven't yet - just assumed the well-established hack for the 16-50 would work.  A quick search of DPR and PF confirms that the 50-135 can be hacked as well.
  • Well, I've always preferred the Pentax rendition and WR, but this is the last straw and particularly the failure of the "new improved" SDM.  With the hack, I'll have screw drive too.  :-)
  • As of this week, my two most expensive manual lenses are the DA* 16-50 and DA* 50-135 at original cost of over $2,000 - SDM died in both within days. The 16-50 was copy #2 (replaced by Pentax ...
  • Thanks, Spyros. For this shot, although the waterfall is certainly present, the focus is on the mossy trees and foreground. I have many others of just the waterfall though they do not tend to have ...
  • Created discussion thread DA 20-40 Ltd 3-D
    Out in the wet Winter Falls Thanks for looking.
  • Such disrespectful animal behavior knows no boundaries. I got no respect from a Himalayan Tahr at 13.000' in Nepal. Thpppt!
  • Replied in Which tripod?
    The 60-250 is perfect for handheld BOF (Blues On Fire) Bending 5 YO thread . . .
  • Replied in lone 200
    While there are many who shoot at this fl and, of those, some will prefer a prime over the many zooms available that cover this range, I suspect there are many like me that just don't tend to ...
  • Unclear whether we are really talking about the same thing. From your DPR link: " The F-number itself doesn't change with sensor size, just as actual focal length doesn't change with sensor size. ...
  • Replied in lone 200
    As they must to serve a sensor twice the size. Smaller format lenses have exactly the same light gathering capabilities as larger format lenses at the same f-stop, for their native sensor sizes. ...
  • Replied in lone 200
    Not really the case for Canikon who have had dual systems for years.  There is still plenty of high quality APS-C gear and its not going away. And therein lies the rub and, indeed, my point.  What ...
  • Replied in lone 200
    I have to disagree.  APS-C is a big market segment, its not going away anytime soon, and the smaller bodies and lenses deliver stunning results.  I will likely get the new FF, but for hiking, ...
  • Peter, If your other lenses have this result, clearly the camera body alone. However, if the 16-45 is your only lens that exhibits this problem, then despite the fact that you can point to the ...
  • Peter, I don't disagree that this is the primary interface, but if OP has not experienced this issue with other lenses, what is it about only this lens that results in wildly missed focus? ...
  • Modern lenses have their own electronics which can be either faulty or otherwise miscommunicating with the camera body which, in turn, can cause problems with focus.  OP has multiple bodies and ...
  • Replied in Fun
    Unless he's dancing or something, hand holding shouldn't be much of an issue since he's using flash.  The focal point is off.
  • This is the auto-translated description with related filing dates indicating that this has been in the works since well before the March, 2014 filing date. (1) Patent Publication No. 2015-172640 (1.1) Publish ...
  • Replied in New to Pentax
    +1  The Tamron is a nice lens though not WR.  The current outstanding prices for the Pentax 100 WR macro will not last long - go for it!
  • You do realize that you've revived a thread that is over 3 years old . . .  ;-)  Carry on.
  • Replied in Wild Horses
    Beautiful, peaceful shots; the third is my favorite but the close up of the snowy head is very nice as well.  You say they are wild, but obviously fairly approachable.
