    Nice shot, Dean - looks like a beautiful place.
  • This is correct because it then means that your shot is no longer anonymous and that fact could influence the voting. This post could also be read as a not-so-subtle request for votes from this ...
  • Fun review - loved the muddy dunking.  Too bad the Sony used to shoot it doesn't employ Pentax's dust reduction features . . .
  • While I think this approach (actually zooming with the lens) is generally disfavored, the results will likely vary depending on the lens used (e.g., favoring constant aperture lenses). I suggest ...
  • As between one relatively broad range zoom (OP was thinking 18-200) and any number of multiple lens options, only the OP really knows his own trajectory.  If the intent is to learn a sophisticated ...
  • Replied in Japanese Iris
    Our first of the season, one of my favorites.  K5IIs & Tamron 90.
  • Steeve changed systems and has now returned to Pentax.
  • It is a great, compact system Jim, with excellent IQ, the flexibility of a core zoom, and WR for those times when weather or spray is a concern.  The two spares fit in a small fanny pack.
  • Replied in Russell
    Interesting short explanation, Steeve - I hope to hear more of your frogging secrets as the results speak for themselves.  Could you use a camouflaged "blind" like folks use for birds and other ...
  • I think you'll like it a lot.  Test carefully but try not to get brick wall test confusticated by the field curvature.  Heie's review on Pentax Forums is quite thorough. Shapes of Winter - DA 20-40 ...
  • In fact, it has 3900% of the zoom range of any other Limited while retaining the IQ . . . :-)
  • I've had mine well over a year (early adopter, Black Friday 2013).  It delivers in every respect - compact, light, great "limited" IQ, WR.  It has replaced the DA 40, largely usurped the FA 43, ...
  • Replied in Wood Hyacinth
    K5IIs and Tamron 90
  • #4 for me - dark and moody.
  • Thanks, Steeve.  Yes, the 20-40 is still my favorite for this sort of stuff.
  • Created discussions Timeworn Specimens
    Here's a few rusty, decaying machines from this afternoon's bike ride in the neighborhood with the K5IIs and DA 20-40 Ltd. Firing Order Negative Space Knobs Of course it works . . . Unhinged Thanks ...
  • 50 or 55 is a little short for classic portraits, though both the FA 50 and DA 55 have lovely bokeh. The DA 70 works quite nicely for me, but for real portrait sessions I favor the DA* 50-135 for ...
  • Your lens collection appears to be sufficiently large to favor getting a Pentax over other DSLR systems, all of which will likely meet most of your needs.  The K7 is pretty dated at this point, ...
  • Fair enough, though if you are considering such things when in post, perhaps the inclination - the temptation if you would - remains.  I, too, struggle with this at times though my rules are ...
  • Nicely done.  I'd have been tempted to clone out the power poles, but either way its a powerful shot.   Thanks also for the link to Sherwood's stuff, some great shots.  I see the similarity in ...
