  • Forum supper at your place ??!! Oh yeah, nice lens too.....
  • My pick is that its a very good upgrade from K3, which I have. I think the new sensor shift is going to help with sharpness and noise and image quality even more ............
  • Check your settings, C3, #15, it is an odd one which allows / disallows the shutter to be released when either in focus or not. Don't know why they give that option, but doesn't really sound like ...
  • I'd give it a go but options are 24, 14, 6 & 2mp. I am also thinking my sigma 17-50 is not as good on my k3 as it is on my k5iis. I have put NR back on but not done much shooting in last two ...
  • Depends on the type of photography you do ............. The K5IIs has no aliasing filter and has 14bit RAW files, so if your pixel peeping, theoretically will give you better quality files. K-01 ...
  • I'll take your word for that .... but certainly with results from last Saturdays wedding which wasn't exactly low light but with some afternoon shadows, the K3 (800iso) results are wayy more ...
  • Replied in New part #
    After getting my 50-135 serviced at CR Kennedy's Australia early this year, the conversation with the technician revealed that they have in.....recent times..... used a new part number and since ...
  • Agreed but what I'm getting at is the new systems and tech being built into k3ii will stabilise and further enhance the sensor and keep up with it. The current SR system keeps up with the 16mp ...
  • My 50-135 was second hand and out of warranty, but failed, so 100% ??? The service guy in Australia was very helpful and said that part number had changed and had no returns since then ... Decide ...
  • I guess f2.8 doesn't matter because the k3 & lens combo was nailing nothing at that aperture. Just checked my shots from Saturday and all 2.8 shots are soft .....
  • Yes, he's sold me on that too ...... And my local store has a whole range of primes.
  • Replied in STOP IT DEAN !!!
    ........... Lol, your giving me GAS , just think that focal range would be fantastic for weddings as well !!!
  • Certainly good products ... my 52 got dropped from my K3 at the wedding on Saturday and then continued to shoot hundreds of shots with consistent exposure all night !!!
  • Dan, So I haven't read that before , k3 has less or no NR compared to K5 series. That would explain the hideous result I got at 1600 + iso with K3. So as you say printing could show the difference ...
  • Fantastic images, looks like you went out beyond the tourist traps and got some great stuff, nice work.
  • Not many people really n e e d anything new and can cope with the gear they have, so having a K3 and a 16-85 means your using pretty well using as good as it gets aps-c right now. 16-85 is more ...
  • I think you'll be best to wait for K3II, not K3 ....... my pick is that after having used K5IIs and K3, the K3II will be the better more stable camera by far.... or the new FF. They put a lot of ...
  • I picked up the K3 and grip a few weeks ago now and put off saying much until I'd given it a good shake down....... Unfortunately it was meant to be as part of a bundle with FLU card and latest AF ...
  • Replied in Fantastic....
    Thanks for sharing, easy listening and beautiful images. I have a sister in New Zealand who will love this, so I'll share it with her .......... Love the fact he's using inexpensive gear.
  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article

    I think full reviews are becoming things of the past people ..... these hands on previews are more and more as much as we will most likely see.
    DP News is the new title ... its more snap shots of...
