  • You don't like sensor shift being described as AA simulation? -- Brett www.pbase.com/shreder The Journey is the Thing
  • On balance then, the Pentax 645Z simply can’t be defined by its price tag alone because this pales into insignificance in the light of everything this camera offers for that money. By that test, ...
  • Oh I obviously didn't look close enough as I didn't see that option and didn't pay enough attention to that part of the review. The RX100III also is an option but I'd prefer interchangable lenses. ...
  • Don't worry Jon, I started this thinking of having a small system as a backup for when I need that option many months ago before the LX100 was released. I've considered the LX100 very strongly  - ...
  • yep the A6000 is a great mirrorless but where I am it's a lot more expensive and as my OP said thus is just the back up system for when I need small and light for cycle touring, light travel etc. ...
  • Thanks for everybody's feedback. I don't think I've given the Fuji camp a fair chance because I didn't even post over on that forum!  I've got some good arguments here for the depth (lenses in ...
  • Thanks Björn. I'm taking a look at your link now. If I get the E-M10 (and it's looking likely) then to get the significant discount offered, it'll come with the current kit 14-42mm EZ.  That's ...
  • Actually Bruce, for my cycle touring and street photos I already have a Pentax K-01 which I purchased when they were running out for AU$299 with 18-55mm lens. It has been the camera I have been ...
  • Good price and I know they're good but doesn't grab me.  And Sony?  They make good Blu-Ray Players don't they ;)
  • Yes that's good advice and dare I say it, advice I've extoled to others over the years. It's more often the small camera you have with you. Starting back with the Pentax ME Super and Olympus OM-1n ...
  • Hi Roger. I noticed you lurking in this forum :) thanks for the feedback, those are helpful comments. m43 is so well established as a system now it's hard to ignore but at this time my Pentax K-3 ...
  • Replied in X-Trans etc
    You could be right there but people have been telling me that for 10 years and Pentax just keep producing about the best, most user friendly APS-C DSLRs and best range of dedicated lenses so it's ...
  • Replied in Adapters
    Thanks. All have good manual focus rings. My FA 31mm F1.8, 43mm F1.9 and 77mm F1.8 have manual aperture rings but the newer ones don't. The 15mm F4 is amazingly flare resistant and very good IQ. ...
  • Replied in X-Trans etc
    yes, I think the GM1 is valid to consider. What I should add to my opening post is that I'm only going to spend "throw away" money (these can be had for AU$400-650) up front as this is intended as ...
  • LOL  I'm waiting for the fabled Pentax FF body to use my FA Limiteds and other FF glass on but seriously the 645Z medium format has me salivating at $11k ;) The idea of the E-M10 or X-M1 is that ...
  • I posted this in the Oly SLR talk but it was suggested this is the more appropriate forum. I stumbled across this month old thread it in doing searches on Oly E-M10 and Fuji X-M1 so I was ...
  • Sorry, my message was lost in writing too many words. I wouldn't be leaving Pentax as my main system.  As I said in my post, the additional system is to have a quality small & light camera for ...
  • I stumbled across this month old thread it in doing searches on Oly E-M10 and Fuji X-M1 so I was interested in the OPs comments. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54893272 I'm currently torn ...
  • 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 ...
