  • Only that he said he's not prepared to upgrade to Yosemite at this stage. Must have a pretty good reason as it's free and runs pretty smoothly on my late-2008 MacBook Pro (2.53ghz 8GB RAM) albeit ...
  • Yes, I don't think I've turned it on ever. I've only taken 2,000 photos but I can't remember a time that I wished I'd turned it in. Maybe my subject matter hasn't been an issue..

    Hey Shane, both my 16-50/2.8 and 50-135/2.8 are the same as yours... slow to 'wake' AF but then OK. That's a real problem when you've got a job to do like a wedding.  My DC motor lenses are a joy ...
  • Oh miss my now dead ME Super :( Those days we very different

  • Actually Pentax has the biggest range of APS-C specific lenses. An FF body IS the missing piece however but that would require updating a lot film era lenses

  • Commented on Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article

    Well said Robgo2!!

  • Commented on Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article

    Same as the other digital medium formal the sensor has approx 60% extra surface area over FF sensors. That's quite a bit..

    He obviously is ignorant of history of medium format / professional photography and Pentax's long history with such classics as the 67.

  • I got an Eye-Fo Mobi a few months for a cycling/camping trip so that I could update my blog using my iPhone everynight. I shot all images on my Pentax DSLR in RAW and at the end of the day then...

  • But importantly I think you need some silver lenses to go with it. Conversely, I bought the DA20-40mm in Silver, the very first Limited I have got in silver (DA15, DA21, FA31, FA43 and FA77 I all ...
  • .. the Super Tak 135mm F2.5 is the one on the right.. a LOT of glass :)
  • Back in the late 80s/early 90s, I had a manual focus K mount Carl Zeiss Jena 28mm F2.8. It was exactly the same as the Sigma 28mm at the time, body etc. looked exactly the same except branding.  I ...

    I tell you where they come in handy for photography, sharing photos with friends and family and I'm not talking about them viewing on their /your smart phone, I'm talking about getting the photos ...
  • I agree.  The retina display ipad is my preferred method of viewing pretty much all photos now, just it's a bit small. Normal screens are almost impossible to look at after that. I just wish I ...
  • Yes mate, it has been that long! When I started posting here I wasn't even a father and that now our oldest son is only 2 years from high school! You'll see below the photo I took when we met in ...
  • Ah Andrew, I figure mine has paid for itself considering the use it's had and trotted around the globe more than once. As i mention elsewhere it is still in use as my 9 year olds camera and he is ...
