FastGlassLover: To the people always loudly expressing that they won't touch manual lenses; auto focus is no different than any other "auto" mode on any device. Something that can be very useful, but if relied on will handicap your mastery.

Avoid manual lenses all you want, no one cares that you're limiting yourself.

On a FF camera, at 15mm f8, hyperfocal distance is 0.95m (3.13 feets), so everything is on focus from 0.475cm (1.65 feets) to infinite.
There is no focus issue with this kind of UWA lens.

(at f2.4, 1.5m /5.2feets to infinite...)

villagranvicent: I guess these babies will be the most expensive APS cameras on the market.

Couscousdelight: About Pentax lenses, a vintage Pentax 85 f1.4 VS a Canon 85 f1.2 L II:
http://www.16-9.net/lens_tests/pentax85/pentax85mm_c.html

And to mention than the CAnon 85 f1.2 is considered to be one of the best Canon lens...

AS Ken rockwell said about image quality of the 85 f1.2 MK2
(...) Exquisitely sharp and contrasty, even wide open, even in the corners, and even on full-frame,(...)

I guess canon users are not very demanding.

DukeCC: Love the pressure on Canikon!
Go Pentax, Go Samsung, Go Sony!

(...)They lack a consistent Lens range fully compatible with this body ? (...)
You mean Sony, right ?

No wide angle ? Of course, but what about the new 15-30 f2.8 ?

85mlm ? Yep, but there is a fantastic 77mm, and there is a vintage AF Pentax 85f1.4 lens than outperforms today CAnikon's 85mm if you want, just one of the best 85mm ever made... (and i forgot the 85 f1.4 by Samyang)

http://www.pentaxforums.com/lensreviews/SMC-Pentax-FA-Star-85mm-F1.4-Lens.html

Too bad for you da300 f4 is FF compatible (see the DPR table about lens compatibility in another article)

There is a 180mm Sigma macro Lens for Pentax.

Something else ?

Mister J: These are not hi-res images.

As presented here they are far worse than I get from my iPhone 5s.

Yeah, yeah, of course. Whatever you say...

Buying yourself a status.
IT's nice to buy expensive stuff to build yourself a personality whern you have no one.

MikeF4Black: Manual focus? What was Voigtlander thinking?

MikeF4Black: Manual focus? What was Voigtlander thinking?

Focusing with such focals is not really a problem.
For example, at 10mm f5.6,on a FF, hyperfocal is about 0.6m, wich means than everything is in focus from 0.3cm to infinity...
You just have to put the focus ring at inginity, and you're good.

On article RED unveils RAVEN, a lightweight and portable 4K camera (161 comments in total)

There is a rumor about Ricoh buiying Red :
http://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/16-pentax-news-rumors/304059-pentax-ff-spring-2016-a-21.html#post3375946

It could be a clever move from Ricoh, Red build their own sensors & processors, it could give Ricoh/Pentax some independance from Sony/Fujitsu.

The user who spread the rumor, Kenspro, is pro photographer affiliated to Pentax.

In reply to:

colesf: If Pentax's past is any clue to the future, then
A. It will be a year behind schedule
B. The AF and metering performance will still lag behind everyone else

You can't bring out a new camera system based on either decades-old lens designs or hoping that legacy lenses will suffice. They need to bring out many more updated lens designs with reliable AF motors.

"metering performance will still lag behind everyone else"
The Pentax metering system is better than any other brand...
