On Sigma announces two 150-600mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM zooms article (134 comments in total)
In reply to:

Chuck Lantz: All this negative stuff about huge zooms being "too heavy"? I'm beginning to think I've stumbled upon the seven dwarves' cottage in the woods.

We're talking about 500 and 600mm zooms, folks! They are SUPPOSED to be heavy, so that we can all look extra cool to the spectators watching us lug all that junk around as we show-off our credentials, walking and blocking their views in locations they can only dream of entering.

I never carry fewer than two, and sometimes three, of those monsters at what I laughingly call "work", and I just hit the big seven-oh (brag-brag-brag), so let's stop the moaning about heavy gear and start hitting the gym a few times a week, dudes and dudettes. This is PHOTOGRAPHY, people! No one said it's supposed to be easy! ;)

Technology is expected to change the size and weight of the lens. I think this lens is the response of the latest developments from Tamron that offers lenses with its strength on developing new materials that are more durable, stronger, less weight but cheaper. Sigma seems to panic .......

On Sigma announces 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM 'C' article (28 comments in total)
In reply to:

DrLogic: No stabilization for Sony? The extra reach is useless without stabilization... And this is a very large range kit lens - the single IQ compromise range somebody takes on a holiday to replace a whole a whole bunch of lenses, so they aren't likely to be using a tripod. Doesn't make sense.

I thought Sigma applied no stabilization to both brand because they have IS in body. With no IS, Sigma can compensate the low selling volume for both brand by reducing the production cost.

SushiEater: 150-600mm Sport is insane. It is the weight of 120-300mm OS F2.8 and I can't hike with it like I do with 50-500mm.

Just wait and see whether the updated Sigma 50-500 (600) OS HSM will be around next years to come.........

On Ricoh announces Pentax K-3 Prestige Edition article (165 comments in total)
In reply to:

PHOTOJOE55: Doesn't it look like APS-C and 1 inch sensors are in much higher demand than Full Frame? I think Canon has 3 or 4 Full Frame cameras in their line-up and Nikon has 8 current production FX cameras. Maybe it's the cost too, but for most applications I think the smaller sensors are more than adequate. This Pentax looks like an excellent camera to work with, and it's so much lighter to carry.

Their Pentax Q have to use 1" sensor and full frame sensor on high end DSLR should be targeted for some one who can not afford digital MF . I personally checked on my friends who use full frame camera, it looks much better for low light shooting, although I realized that crop sensor also shows improvement.

In reply to:

RichRMA: I'd have avoided the red on the lens. Reminds me of Canon.

HD coating looks generic name. Many third party adapter lens from China use this abbreviation. Pentax should maintain this SMC name with with strong pronounce. May be better to use SMC-II or other unique statement.

On Nikon launches S2 1-System mirrorless camera article (73 comments in total)

Nikon should come out with Nikon 1 with folded lens system as an updated of their Coolpix series. Their sensor size should be 1" to make it more interesting for upcoming buyer.

Some peoples are blinded as the cause of heritage of cold war era, and ignore that other part of the world also have talent and wisdom. Let see of the review first and not only judge before or never trying it.

Just wait for Sigma version on Pentax mount........

In reply to:

PrebenR: If they would scale this up to an APS-C sensor it could be interesting.

I like 1" sensor size because its flexibility to change a normal tele-lens (fl 200mm) become super tele lens which is super expensive. So, to plunge as nature photographer is not only a dream.

No one force you to buy something. You choose and decide which one fit your need and your budget.

In reply to:

Richard Murdey: ...because Nikon 1 was so successful, Samsung knew the world needed another 1" sensor format ILC...

Not the Nikon 1 series, but for the 1" sensor size to meet today IQ standard against smaller sensor which has been already taken by mobile phone.

In reply to:

drummercam: Where Pentax leads (Q-series), others eventually follow.

If Pentax want to compete (win!), they should add to complement
its Q series with 1" sensor on it but maintain its lens mount size. The smaller size does not meet today standard of IQ of the image and has been taken over by mobile phone camera.

On Ricoh announces HD Pentax DA AF 1.4X AW rear converter article (52 comments in total)

When I read this compatibility camera & lens, make me curious that this TC just re-badge of existing TC from third party manufacturers (Tokina, Tamron etc). Just check on the needs to update firmware for the existing body. May be some hackers will help us to make our existing AF TC to work.

completelyrandomstuff: I don't know if dropping Pentax name is such a good idea for them, but I am sure they have done their market research...

Ricoh decided to drop their compact camera under Pentax name. By logic, they should move their Ricoh GXR camera series to hold Pentax name on it.

In reply to:

leventhan: Go to here: http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/pentax_k50_review/sample_images/

I downloaded iso 6400 and its very clean yet sharp even though I didn't use the sharpening slider. It's very very usable. If only Pentax step up their game in their movie quality...

marike6,
In term of body design Pentax K30 is much more nicer. It is not only just follow other brand, but an effort to create signature for Pentax products. It also happened with Pentax K-01. Unfortunately, they only create body only, not the lenses & others accessories which should be blend with the body itself.
