  • Holger, you appear to be the upholder of all that is good and right about the K-S1. I'm fine with that, someone has too as it appears to me to be a great little camera but got priced unfortunately ...
  • Agreed, it's an amatuer kind of description...... just a curiosity. Would be thinking it's got to be 50's at earliest? but more so something 60's 70's
  • Replied in K-X or K-50
    I have the Kx with the 18-55 and 55-300 kit plus a K5IIs and a few other nicer lenses also. 1. shutter on K5IIs is much quieter: Not a big deal unless your shooting weddings and the like. (I have ...
  • I have an 18-55 which gets hardly any use. At f8 and between 22-40 ish it's capable of some sharp results. Don't expect to get much out of it wide open or with apertures too wide or small, it is ...
  • I stumbled upon this in an Aussie local sales site. http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/o-connor/antiques/antique-fob-watch-/1063996601?utm_source=criteo&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Facebook-goods&mpch=ads
  • I have the Sigma 17-50 and it is my go to lens and absolutely tack sharp ..... to the point of not adding sharpening in PP. From what I read the Tamron is close according DXO, who's reports I agree ...
  • Created discussions SDM failure strikes .......
    Went to cover an end of year fundraising Christmas function at my partners chiropractic clinic yesterday......... pulled out the 50-135 to use and......... ooooohhhhhh!!!!! Absolutely no AF, ...
  • Replied in Stair Well
    Magic Dean .............. always loved architecture. This one is stunning in its simplicity, colour and composition. That's a keeper and an architecture challenge finalist.
  • As should be expected, a highly capable evolution of the brand......... I still think it will be a while before dpr does a review and quite frankly don't care if they never do. I think we know what ...
  • No experience with the 17-70's but would like something a bit longer, however fwiw: I use the 17-50 and its sharp as a tack, going to the 55-300 for longer still very acceptable stuff. Its covering ...
  • No offence taken, my father in law also pointed that out ...... Darn it, I usually take good care with my spelling. ..... and now I cant even get into my site to correct it because apparently I ...
  • Replied in A good Post
    Nothing like an impromptu tripod .......... nice scene too and yes those Penny compacts are pretty darn good
  • Replied in Thanks Team
    Yes, usually AV for most of my work, with Metz flash p-ttl and faultless........... I like the way the K5IIs handles, although sometimes even with a high speed card, the write speed is slow, I ...
  • +1 ......... well done, keep up the good work, always nice to be recognised or see your work in print
  • Here's a link to a few shots and how the day went for me at a wedding a few months back. A few shots and some nice lessons learnt in the making.............. All taken with Pentax DSLR's http://rea ...
  • ....... that the differences are pretty small, especially with Sony, Pentax and Nikon using those Sony/Toshiba sensors'. It's just the processors' in the camera and the lens qualities on any given ...
  • Tongue in cheek guys, but really, c'mon ....... they couldn't have a staff picnic without someone putting some slant on it: ..... their doomed , they have all given up on the industry, sold out the ...
  • The K50 will do a splendid job and take great photo's in a studio, much the same as any other DSLR in the right hands and lighting techniques and post processing. The 16mp sensor is a classic and ...
  • Measurebating and comparing and "what if-ing". There are so many combinations of cameras, lenses and area's where Nikon or Canon or Pentax or Sony will have advantages or disadvantages. All the ...
  • Competitive market Difficult times Yen issue Operating profitably Model revision due Sell more lenses Summed up simply
