Nice for quick editing. Always wondered why this option wasn't added earlier, seems so obvious. Looking forward to it.

ChrisH37: Read the specs, saw the price, massively tempted as I was about to buy a Sony a7RII anyway.

Then I looked at the lens lineup. I know everyone has to start somewhere, but the native lens lineup is absurdly expensive.

£2000 for a near equivalent to a 35mm 1.8 / 85mm 1.8 combo (31mm and 77mm in Pentax speak). £1900 for a 70-200mm 2.8.

Yeah the lenses - UWA - to be exact keep me from switching back from Nikon. The rebranded Tamron 15-30 is twice the price. :/

Did something like this ever happened to Nikon or Canon?

Now I'd see that as a good sign! :)

This together with the new Irix 15mm and the Sigma 20 1.4 would be a dream set up for nightscapers. Would love such a lens for FF. :)

Great article, very informative. Can't wait for the first test of the astro-tracker function!

WordsOfFarewell: If this gets a full frame version, I'm in!

I'm not so certain about that. The 18-35 1.8 also got a FF version for a reasonable price. ;)

On article The long, difficult road to Pentax full-frame (617 comments in total)

I am very curious to see the third party support for the system actually. That's going to be I think the deciding factor for me whether to switch back from Nikon to Pentax or not.

On article Worth the wait? A look inside the Pentax K-1 (649 comments in total)

I only left Pentax about a 2 years ago because I wanted FF now it seems like I have to switch back ... At least give it a serious try out to see how good it is.

WordsOfFarewell: Good thing Sigma lenses are getting amazingly good these days. :)

Ah, yeah forgot about that one. But I thought the trinity is usually referred to as 14-24 24-70 70-200. I get your point however. ;)

On article GoPro's poor holiday sales lead to staff layoff (115 comments in total)

I guess they need to innovate a little since the marked is saturated with their products by now and people don't buy incremental updates everytime. But no, they kick people out because they only barely made half a billion. Makes the company very sympathetic.

In reply to:

WordsOfFarewell: Hm, APS-C for $2000? Seems like a tad overpriced even though the other features may seem pretty good. Guess this might make a good weapon for Sports or Press people however. Nothing for me though. Still waiting for a D900.

Didn't know they drop prices that fast. Usually I thought about 30% for street prices. But ok then it's not overpriced, just ambitious.

Ok, by now even as someone keen to go back from Nikon to Pentax (only left due to FF) my attention span is waning because I frankly am disappointed with the delays and secrecy. At some point it's do or die. And somehow, even though I don't want to be a naysayer, having been a Pentaxian most of my life, I feel like this will fall through because they can't get things done before other companies double down and offer something more reasonable. But I hope they prove me wrong!

Looks like it does have quite a few people thinking about the ergonomics and versatility. I like what I see, the only thing that I'm missing the is a round eyepiece with an integrated shutter.

Other than that, very tasty. Can't wait to get some technical specs!

In reply to:

sirkhann: Most Nikonians probably think there is no logical reason to choose the Sigma versus 20/1.8G.

And then I promise you - just wait to see the samples from this lens. You can cut your finger o this baby's corners, so sharp!

Or ,maybe landscapes that do not involve a sky, such as forests, creeks, ravines and whatnot.

Well I guess the only reason why I would chose the Nikon one is that it takes regular 77mm filters which also makes it viable for daylight photography not only night stuff. In cases of Long Exposure Photography or Landscapes which require a CPL.

WordsOfFarewell: Sorry for I'm asking something this dumb, but can someone tell me what the potential customer base for this product is? I can't imagine any, I really can't.

Hey Guys, thanks for the replies. Maybe I'm not to acquainted with some of the usages of photography or why one would need a camera that is basically only good for a limited amount of things. But apparently there are specialists who prefer this over a more versatile camera. Good to know though, wouldn't have considered but portability is indeed an advantage for some especially for street photography. Still I would imagine it's a though trade for only having focal length on a 3500 buck camera. But you learn something new every day. :)
