  • I find the original better as well. The birds are not up close but its balanced perfectly, obeys the rule of thirds nearly perfect if not perfect, has the whole frame filled with objects or superb ...
  • Truly superb in all ways. There is a story. I won't forget this shot!
  • Maybe... I have written in the years past about lens with image stabilization built in. According to Klaus of Photozone often have optical alignment problems. Klaus started this some years back. ...
  • This is one area I will keep a close eye on. I tried customer support for warranty repair and you have to call to know where to send your camera. Except in the Extended Warranty Section, it still ...
  • " So although it DID look rather insane, it's not beyond belief that the top Nikon PRO camera IS made to take that level of punishment, although I certainly can't imagine doing stuff like that to ...
  • DigitalRev; yea I watched the video of him abusing I think two cameras. I watch, from time to time; I have to admit. However there is a healthy limit despite his likable personality. Heie you still ...
  • This is going to be a really hard act to follow! At first I was not going to watch it. But I started to when he put some heat to his Nikon. I guess Pentax should look into heat proof as well, it ...
  • I would not believe everything. Pentax tracks incoming objects with fast focusing screw drive lens super fast and sure, but not at a 100% hit rate, about 55%-90%. Its very dependent on many ...
  • The author asks no question only makes assumptions that in body AF speed is slow. And in their IMHO will slow tracking.
  • Your kidding? Have you used a Pentax small prime? Do you know how fast they focus compared to any other type? Do you see people complaining about their speed other than you. Well here is a quote ...
  • Any Pentax camera with Shake Reduction can compensate for pitch and yaw e.g. tilting up/down or rotating left/right. That is how most of us shake. We don't shake in a linear up/down movement or ...
  • "5-axis stabilization is better" The Pentax system starting with the K-7 is a 5 axis stabilization system.

    Just to make sure everyone understands. A Pentax DA*50-135mm f/2.8 will give you the same shutter speeds as a 70-200mm f/2.8 at any setting that gives equal FOV. Here is a cropped uploaded from my ...

    Yea, I will just say research it. And try again. F/2.8 is the same on 4/3, APS, FF, MF in terms of shutter speed at any given ISO. If its a true f/2.8 and it should be as most lens do use the ...
  • Replied in Not quite
    No, your wrong! The lens can't put out twice the amount of light on a FF because it could not even cover a FF sensor? So are you kidding.  The lens does as stated on an APS sensor. Just compare ...
  • Your Joking? Pentax with Ricoh are hitting hard these days . In just a short period of time, we get the award winning K-3, more weather resistant lens. A great lens road map, a super telephoto, a ...
  • The Pentax DA*16-50mm f/2.8 is a 24-75mm f/2.8 in full frame. The whole DA*, DA lens system was designed to take full advantage of the APS sensor. That means a smaller lens, lighter, less costly ...
  • "I test drove an EM1 for a month with grip" That's basically what I wrote. With grip long telephotos are doable.
  • Yes congratulations. The picture speaks for itself. There is no question as to why it won.Thanks for posting. I would if I could kick myself for not buying the K-01 when they were selling out. BTW ;)
  • Are you kidding me. You have a Heron of a type I have not seen, tiny it is! You have a butterfly, you have little water droplets on lush green vegetation in water, all in one pic! Superb... The ...
