  • I think the Pentax K-3 is the best built APS-C body on the market.  It has the best ergonomics of any APS-C camera on the market.  I shot with Canon for 20 year, Contax for 10, Olympus for 3. The ...
  • Hoya returned the Pentax brand to profitability.  They put the 645D into production and K-7/K-5 laid the ground work for the K-3.  Hoya had to return Pentax to profitability in order to sell it.  ...
  • Fuji is releasing a firmware update for the X-T1 with totally silent electronic shutter (up to 1/32,000) in December. The problem for me is that when I go down the list of things I want, Sony only ...
  • OK. I knew you had switched and I saw where you put your Fuji gear up for sale on the other forum.  I ask because I'm looking at adding a MILC to my bag and I can't decide between Fuji and Sony.  ...
  • There is nothing keeping him from taking one image in RAW and one OOC JEPG.  Its not like they are going to run away before he can switch settings.
  • I think there is a lot of potential here, but I agree with the above posters.  It needs to be toned down a little.  Shooting in RAW and working in post is going to give you much better results ...
  • You have gone from Pentax to Fuji to Sony?  I know you had K-3 mirror issues, but what is it about the Fuji system that made you sell and move to Sony?
  • Its been rumored for a couple of years now that Canon has not been investing R&D dollars into traditional sensor technology.  The next upgrade to fabrication will be for a new type of sensor.  ...
  • Size and range.  Most weddings are indoors and the venues are really not big enough for a lot of 200mm (on APS-C) work.  Why spend 8 hours carrying around 30% more weight? If photography is about ...
  • The patent on SMC coatings expired years ago.  In its day, SMC was as good as anything in the industry.  I think everyone is using a newer nano coating on premium lenses.  With the patent expired, ...
  • This e-mail went out to existing Pentax customers, so relatively few people are actually going to see the add, and those people generally have a positive opinion of the Pentax brand.  The camera ...
  • I'd be surprised if people at Ricoh have internet access.  If someone in the office had a computer this ad would have never gone out.
  • It's just sad......  Bad stock photo with bad manipulation. Ricoh might be better off with no marketing than this.  Luckily this is only going out to registered owners, and not part of a global ...
  • Actually that e-mail went out in Europe too.  I laughed as soon as I opened my e-mail.  This wasn't a Pentax USA error.  Anyone who works in the visual arts should have instantly noticed how bad ...
  • If you just want a general purpose camera then Pentax is the way to go.  I prefer the OVF to the EVF, but there will come a point when the refresh rates, DR, color depth, & resolution exceed what ...
  • Ricoh has a problem.  The existing user base is older and mostly made up of gear collectors and historians at this point.  Casual shooters who won't be buying any new lenses because they have a ...
  • Yes.  It will take years for Ricoh to develop the glass needed.  A few years ago Sigma was still supporting K-mount and could fill in the gaps while Ricoh developed glass, but Sigma has basically ...
  • Two reasons for the persistent demand for a Pentax FF is that K-mount was designed for a FF sensor from the beginning there would be fewer people expecting a FF body and they would have a more ...
  • Nobody is attacking anyone's choice. I don't care what brand of camera anyone shoots with.  If I think a lens is great like the 31mm Ltd, I buy it and use it and express my positive opinion about ...
  • I think I also used the phase "corporate loyalists" as well. It wasn't an anti-Pentax/Ricoh rant.  I didn't say anything negative about Ricoh other than they have a lot of work to do with their ...
