  • Very interested to see how this reviews.
    From a tech point of view, the sensor, apart from cramming more mp's into them, nothing seems to have bettered the 16mp Sony sensor yet.... It seems we have...

  • Replied in 24mm
    21mm Ltd not enough mm.......... ?? and 35 too big?? ... or as suggested a nice used version. Sigma and Tamron are still making the more popular sized lenses in k mount. I just think the economics ...
  • Sad truth of the current times is gaining any sort of market traction. This looks like a really nice piece of kit, but with sales having declined of late it's hard to see Samsung gaining any sort...

  • Interesting to see the performance reviews........ no doubt PF will be onto it quickly. Will it have a more consistent quality throughout its focal range or have 'issues' at either end ?? I can see ...
  • A few models old now and a bit heavy for street work..... I would say there's a few either using or still got them. At the end of the day, it's the 6 inches behind the viewfinder that makes the ...
  • Nice work Phil, I enjoy the story telling with images and you have some nice shots to accompany it. Reminds me a little of home in New Zealand. Is that another social media type account ? where you ...
  • + 1 on the 55-300, which does hunt n grind away a bit, however when in the zone it's pretty good. + 1 on the suggestions of other models possibly cheaper Sigma's and even FA J's. I just purchased a ...
  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    This blingy little thing is a smart way to enter into Ricoh's strong hold markets, predominantly the Asian one. It's small, colourful and modern looking, regardless of whether it's mirrorless or...

  • Replied in Gliding...
    The mirror move....... good capture !!!
  • ...... our total wish list coming thick an fast from Pentax. After researching a few recent threads and fairly modern info regarding the total camera industry and the current trend of downwards ...
  • Replied in Economics
    Again, very simple....... Pentax haven't ventured into FF and they aren't selling enough (relatively speaking) aps-c product, that those who wish to venture beyond the 55-300 or 60-250 aren't provi ...
  • You got some great shots there and from a nice high angle. The second shot even though with a hazy background has a nice mood to it and the Harvards or Texan's have been nicely cropped. Great work
  • Replied in quite correct
    Quite correct at present Jim, perhaps when it drops in price, but certainly existing K50's are going out the door like hot cakes here in Aus and the usual suspects walking into chain stores are ...
  • With their expensive niche products and marginal profits, not entering the DSLR market, are they leaving Pentax alone to fight for a slice of the bigger crumbs on offer in that market. Lets face ...
  • ...... Full frame Canikons with large lenses at large events, the mass general population .....which is the bulk of the sales target area .......will continue to think that's where it's still at ...
  • Some great snaps there......... nice Bokeh and like the light on Recce Witherspoon(?). Did you say what lens you used.........
  • Initially thought it was too expensive, but as an initial price ??... higher resolution than k5II series and with some of K3 features......... but without WR and twin dials............ hmmm not ...
  • Replied in simple equation
    If your going into battle or hunting rare species in Borneo.....get the Pentax. Anyone who is a good photographer can post nice photos with any lens. Fact: what Pentax lacks ever so slightly in ...
  • He is saying better than the Tokina.......... not the Fuji; that's not hard to believe if you've used Pentax lenses..... colours and lens flare resistance... stunning !!!

  • ....... so is the bride and groom happy? and are you happy? That's what matters ultimately..... Asking for C & C has it's benefits and pitfalls. You can end up getting confused with other peoples ...
