  • The HD 1.4 converter will certainly be my bridge from APS-C to FF, though the 50-135 becomes 70-189 (not 109).  Since we are likely looking at 50MP, a new hard drive will also be necessary . . .
  • A decisive moment, well captured.
  • If you're prioritizing WR along with zoom flexibility, the Pentax offerings are your only option.  DA* 16-50 for brightest & constant aperture, DA 20-40 Ltd. for light wight and small size, and ...
  • Lovely expression on the cat - shock and awe!

    Steeve, in my very limited experience, if you are doing rider-on-horse portraits a short step ladder can be really helpful to get up to average eye level (horse and rider).  Also, use a long lens ...
  • Fun shot, Steeve.  I am working on developing my horse photography and the angles/perspectives are challenging to say the least.
  • Looks like your second time was the charm, charmed enough anyway - nice iris shots.
  • Actually, Pentax's silence on this issue for years could fairly be taken as an "official" denial of any problem in the past (contra K5 sensor stain) - this survey certainly refutes the "5 users ...
  • Agree.  Of course this poll is not a true statistical representation of the worldwide universe of Pentax SDM lens users, merely the self-reporting segment of DPR Pentax SLR forum readers, but it ...
  • Nice bunny.  Your lens seems to perform well.

    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 ...
