  • ephotozine also put up a review of this lens on may 27th 2015. It very closely matches Photozones findings. ePhotozine found it to have "excellent sharpness" and Highly Recommended the lens. After ...
  • I know. My old original version of the DA55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED has always been sharp, could say tack sharp at 300mm f/5.8. It is hard to impossible to tell the difference between 300mm f/5.8 and ...
  • Replied in Piece of Junk.
    I believe the SDM issue, experienced it at a camera shop! I think it is fixed, but am not sure if its fixed. I would not bet my money because I would never feel good using the lens after eight ...
  • Interesting. Whose upper management? Look at CIPA data. Its an aggregate of all companies that participate. Which is all of the common big ones we know of, Nikon, Canon, Pentax ext. The economist ...
  • I wont argue about declining profits. But some one in the USA is making some money and sales year to April 1, and can make you optimistic overall. I have known why lens dont drop in price too ...
  • Yes I think luck was not on your side. Yes I am a Pentax fan. I kept track of overall reliability for the big two for many years. I found Pentax bodies to have less overall problems. Especialy in ...
  • Yes about the speakers, KEF speakers I was not clear. I was thinking something and used a poor example. The KEF UNI Q tweeter is a whole tweeter, its own dome, surround, coil magnet, and mount, ...
  • Be warned never hold/shoot any type of gun too loose you can cause death . Get training. BTW -- jamesm007, Pentax K5, K20D http://www.flickr.com/photos/jamesm007/ http://s195.photobucket.com/albums ...
  • I shoot at least 200 rounds a month. When you hold a auto pistol to lose you may limp wrist it to fte but you can still nail it. -- jamesm007, Pentax K5, K20D http://www.flickr.com/photos/jamesm007/ ...
  • Agree, we have some things in common. I shoot pistols just for fun. As long as I hold any weapon with three dots right place, I have a nice crisp trigger pull. Even with small shake the bullet ...
  • Yes there are standards that can be used if needed, one west IP, and east (Japan) JIS. The only reason the engineer did not give the K10D (first WR camera) an IP rating is because they cannot know ...
  • The response was for keeping SR active being able to hand hold the camera and having Hi Res. Perhaps your is to. The method I speak of if possible (it would be but some factors to follow) would ...
  • The K-5 and all flagship models from the K10D up to it have shutters rated for 100,000 cycles. The K-3 has a shutter rated for 200,000. The K5ll I am not sure.
  • Simple answer is yes it will. From time to time i still use my kodak DC5000. Its a dslr size point and shoot of 2mp fully wr and tough build for HD use. I took care of it and only used it on ...
  • As to Pentax current system. I wonder if a moving Bayer Filter would work. Since the filter is so light (or make it light), put it on a secondary very thin plate that does not impede the magnetic ...
  • Ohh you took it personal! Do you really think I don't think other countries do the same as the USA. My guess would be yes they are the same. But because I don't know, I only spoke for where I ...
  • Its a very serious learning tool. I did not Google it. I was speaking from my experience in school. We raised our hands to ask questions. Just about every teacher (70%+)  told us to raise your ...
  • Your one of the best true Gentlemen on this forum ozdean. I was going to post this last night but did not. Here it is. Having an imagination is part of being human. Keeping your imagination active ...
  • Replied in pricing
    To. build a 50-135mm f/2 would still be smaller if matching IQ (of the lens) and faster. Look at the DA50-200mm and think. The only time a lens loses f/stop in terms of light is when putting a FF ...
  • I have been looking at this pic for days. Brings a smile every time. My type of humor. No limits, not even for myself. I think, is this a joke? Why is the camera so low? How far down does that ...
