BobYIL: Another lesson for those of us who think their photography would improve proportional to what they spend for it...
Agree. Should end all of the gear arguments. Just get out and shoot!
Soon to be replaced by Walgreens and AutoZones :-(
This should have been 1st. Beautiful photo.
Five Piece: That's a nice shot.
Way better image than a sunset. Well done.
Wes Syposz: she never really explains why she prefers a FF...
Focal length is the same no matter what camera she uses. A 300mm is a 300mm on 135 or aps-c formats. The angle of view varies.
Should have been the winner. Well done!
I'm glad they are small! Great pic.
dranandsonu: excellent. Love light and composition too
Greg VdB: Very classy shot, beautifully composed. What was the light source? A monitor or something?
Good call, it was my LCD television. Shot in the early morning before I went to work. The TV was the only light source and it was constantly changing in color and intensity.
Lovely image. I like the "old master" tonality.
JackM: Awesome. Ibanez?
Sell this to a night club.
Thanks. It's actually a USA Dean Hardtail. It's got the curves!
also el: one of my favorites as soon as you posted it. perfect 'electric' lighting. high marks from me.
kai liu: many times, lens is way more important than body. I used to use pentax for 2 years. then I switched to canon 7d. Canon just have so much more lens choice. Pentax lens selection is really limited. And their lens quality are behind canon lens. When I see k-3, it sure looking amazing, but then I think about those pentax lens I have used, I lost interest. I think pentax's priority is to update their lens. They have not announce some high quality lens for many years.(except that 560mm) but look at canon they keep making new lens and update old lens with better optical.
Pentax lenses are as good as any others. Some Pentax lenses have operational issues, but so do lenses from other manufacturers. They don't have to update them optically because they are already good.
Should have been 1st. Nice shot
tarakanchik: pretty interesting
Thanks. I didn't think it would do well here, but worth a shot. Most people go for the standard "pretty" shots.
I wouldn't call it "Lomo" but a nice shot nonetheless.
jonikon: The K-30 may be a very good camera (leaving the reliability issue of Pentax DSLRs aside), but it only makes up one half of the image quality equation, with the other half being the lens in front of the sensor. Unfortunately the Pentax DSLRs suffer from a lot of cheap lenses with poor optical qualities, or very expensive lenses with acceptable, but not exceptional optical qualities. For example, the Pentax SMC 16-50mm f/2.8 lens is over $1400 at reputable dealers like B&H photo, but this lens only gets 3 stars out of 5 (or 60%), for optical quality from the Photozone lens review. For value and the ultimate in optical lens quality, Nikon is a much better choice for lenses than Pentax, which makes a Nikon DSLR the better choice for a camera.
There is no reliability issue with Pentax DSLRS that is any different with any other brand. I used a K20D for 3 years with ZERO issues. Granted the SDM issues with some lenses have been a sore point but optically Pentax lenses are as good or better than any other. You're splitting hairs - the Nikon 17-55 f2.8 gets 3.5 stars. No big difference. How about looking at photos instead of charts. Sony lenses test horribly but I've seen a number of great photos taken with them.
photo nuts: Entry with the nicest colors. Well done!
Thanks nuts. Just one of those "keep it simple" pics.
