  • Not as well set up for FF as I have sold most of my F and FA lenses over the last 11 years since getting the *istD. But I do have enough good FF lenses to do quite well thanks; FA 31mm F1.8 FA 43mm ...
  • I think the term 'silent' is subjective. None of the in lens motor DSLR lenses (from any maker) are actually silent but are relatively quiet. Some more so than others and most are so quiet you ...
  • 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..
  • Replied in Same here
    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..

  • Commented on Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article

  • 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 ...
  • Replied in Neither
    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 ...
