Raist3d: So sad to see Russia doing this. I hope the rest of the world can serve as a living example of why this is ridiculous.
No any violence. Gays could kiss at home or in clubs. If they kiss at the street, it's bad manners :) Any drunk men or passing pedestrian-homophobes could strike them. Or could be surprised. In theory. I never seen such things for my long life. No any difference for police if the injured person is gay or not gay. They are the same citizens. No marriage. Nobody thinks about gays and nobody care about gays in Russia. Believe me - Russian don't care about private life of two men or two woman. But there are gays even in Kremlin. For a long time. Only propaganda between infants is prohibited by law, gay's parades/marches are prohibited by local goverment. It's all. I think it's some kind of idiocy - to organize gay parade. If you love other man - it's your PRIVATE BUSINESS. Nobody organize parade if he loves woman. Do you know about USA's laws against gays? http://www.kansas.com/news/politics-government/article1134079.html More strict than Russian laws. There are such law in Russia.
Overton window theory works. It's easy to use mass media to manipulate of human consciousness for proving that cannibalism, paedophilia and zoophilia are great liberal values of our world. I'm not conservative, but I don't think that it's liberal system of values. It's substitution of liberal values. IMO. Who order it? And why?
The devices are simple: heart and brain. All answers are easy to find in New Testament. If you want to know the social attitude to gays in Russia I can say you: Nobody care about it. It's private life of two men and nothing else.
It's one of the biggest myth of Western propaganda. The sodomy is serious sin, but nobody prohibit to do it. Every human has the freedom of choice - to do sin or not to do it.
populism and speculation
Eric Hensel: I've never understood why they don't fit the O-ring to the camera-side mount --sealing any lens attached, at one of it's most vulnerable spots.
You don't understand. 10 lenses means frequent contacts with camera's mount.
Yes. I don't believe - I know. :) The mount of camera will have much more frictions and contacts with lens mount when you change one lens to another. Yes...If you use just 1-2 lenses, it won't be problem. IMO. But the camera is for different users. I have 10 lenses, for example. And I use all.
ogl: OVF 100% 0.8x - not lower36 MP sensor wider AF points than in APS-C cameras No AA filter It's enough for me
24 MP is old sensor, 36 MP is better in terms of DR and noise.
DFA ZOOMS are more important for future FF camera now, than fixed lenses. New fixed lenses will be on 2016-2017.

Who will replace? Service? It's useless idea. I think it's silicone ring. This ring is strongly stuck at the mount of lens. I see this at my DFA100 macro WR. It will be made in the same way at the mount of camera. How to replace it at home during warranty period? You invent the problem for manufacturer and for users. :)
Such ring will wear out much quicker than at lens mount.
Correct mistake with dimensions
What kind of hood?
Diameter 41 mm (1.61″)Length 71 mm (2.8″)Mistake in specs diameter 71 mm, length 41 mm
God, I want to live till I could take Pentax FF camera.
Is there any sense to make f1.8 for fish-eye?
Zvonimir Tosic: Pentax HD 70-200 has a new super-fast SDM motor, not DC.And as one user said, this new 70-200mm F2.8 lens may just out perform anything ever made in that classification of lenses by any manufacturer.It has 4 anomalous dispersion lenses + 2 ED lenses + 2 super ED lenses: for a total of 8 fancy ED style lenses, covered in all the latest and best coatings in the industry. Pentax pulled out all the stops on this one.
This lens is a game changer in this category.
DC is just type of motor. It could be RING motor.
ealvarez: Is this manual focus lens? $599? I can get 135mm f2L canon for about $600 used and Nikon 180 f2.8D even cheaper used.. I don't share much of the enthusiasm. Maybe I would if I was Sony E-mount shooter.
You can. But if you're Canon user. :)))
