  • So you say that AF-S and AF-C are both very good ? Am vazut ca erai f. interesat de cum se prezinta noul AF-C. Sper sa ne povestesti, ca sa nu ni se para si noua f. ciudata lipsa de feedback... :)
  • Yep. No AA filter, mechanichal rolling shutter, and fast horizontal action... the recipe for bad reviews... K-3II has electronic shutter (not enabled yet for HSS) , but 645Z not even that...
  • MZ-S is my main Pentax 35 AF film camera ( I have other cameras also) TV is no diferent then AV. In AV, next to aperture value, time value is shown green in viwfinder (and also on top LCD). In TV ...
  • Old way is with a rotating color filter in front of the lens (with SMC coatings...) SF way is with split color prism, 3 way optical path, all converging to one sensor, but each path with a ...
  • I'm also used to AV, (from 1975 Pentax K2 black which I still own and use), and with Hyper Program from 2003 Pentax *istD which I still own and use, but I also have and still use Pentax MZ-S, in AV ...
  • MZ-S has TV (and P, and green button), so you can use DA and FA-J lenses. Aperture is shown on viewfinder and on top LCD, so no problem with that.
  • PZ1-p is junk: - strong body vibrations - flying flash spring - body is known to die ( for good...) unexpected. - eat buttery very fast - only 1 AF point - hunting AF - weird control and ergonomics ...
  • DA* 300 f4 is good opticaly, but has micro SDM AF motor, pretty slow, no match for Nikkor AF-S In the light of the coming Pentax FF, we expect new lenses, with ring DC motor. Beyound some ...
  • F and FA 50 f 1.7 are very-very good opticaly, maybe less so the hexagons of the 6 aperture blades... F has noisy AF, if not close prefocused, but is decent fast AF wise, and look better build. FA ...
  • Flare resistance on all CaNikon 70-200 f 2.8 and f4 variants, in practice, is more like non-existent.
  • Contax AX, 1996, autofocus with moving film plane (Kyocera tech.)
  • Using this formula, FA 24-90 f 3.5-4.5 is only 64.6 mm tele, when focused at 0.5m. Lucky that for human portret, perspective distortion limit the focusing distance at ~ 1.5m, where is close to 90mm. ...
  • DA 16-45 f 4 help a bit. Some lenses show exaggerated contrast, and tend to darken the shadows way mare. DA 18-55 II ( all variants normal/WR/DA-L) are like that, way to contrasty, unnatural. FA ...
  • I have this lens, and I don't like it, because: - cold rendering, which combined with high contrast, renders very dark unnatural shadows, covering details. - is wobbly and plastiky, - not very fast AF,
  • What is si special and unparalleled ???

    Sigma 105 cost a little...

  • Replied in what?
    You're absolutely right, is just a snapshot, and is not worthy of a true photography contest, but that doesn't change the fact that looks better then most of the other entries, except the one who ...
  • You should be glad, that your work is not mixed with all ordinary kitsch. Comparing them with your photo, all the others entries look plain stupid.
