On Fujifilm X-A1 real-world and test scene samples article (105 comments in total)
In reply to:

Trollshavethebestcandy: I would be more excited if it had a fixed f2.8 wide zoom lens for under $900. The lenses are expensive.

I'm not sure about that, my Tamron 17-50 cost 300$, and it's really excellent. In fact it's the perfect standard zoom for me, because of it's flare resistance, which is a huge beniefit with my style of photography.
Maybe Tamron will produce the 17-50 for the X mount ?

In reply to:

Master Yoda: Sorry but this collection of images doesn't make it for me. I see terrible shadow detail, colors are somewhat muted, they're too coolish in tone and sharpness could be better in most of them. Finally, the fact that you can order this in 120 different color combinations isn't exactly a feature Pentax should be bragging about to people who are at all semi-serious about a piece of photographic equipment. I mean come on . . .

IZO100, i've read some of your comment's history, are you for real ?
I mean, for all Pentax article, you're here to post your uninteresting thoughts about how bad Pentax is. Your wife is gone with a Pentax rep ?
B.T.W., your "gallery" speaks for itself, you just don't know what photography is.

On Have Your Say: Best DSLR / SLT of 2013 article (349 comments in total)
In reply to:

RicardoPhotos: As a professional, I simply cannot spend much time thinking about Pentax. Lens options are just not there. But I think their camera bodies are incredibly impressive. I have a colleague who uses a Pentax to shoot fashion shows. Darn fine camera. If the Pentax K3 had built-in WiFi, we'd be looking at the Canon 7D MKII. Very impressive. But as we all know, it's all about the lenses. And that's where Pentax fails miserably.

I was thinking either the sensor of the 70D or compactness of the SL1 would get my vote. Eventually, the SL1 got my vote. It's a tiny DSLR that's ALMOST pocketable. And image quality is very good. Love that little guy!

Pentax have the most complete APS-c line-up, from 12 to 250mm, you have plenty of choices (for example, they have 4 differents 50mm primes : DA LTD 50 f2.8 Macro, FA50 F1.4, DA50 F1.8, and DA* 55 f1.4...)
The lack of lenses is true if you need long focals (+300mm), but under 300, you have everything you need.

Couscousdelight: Seeing such good rate for the Oly 14-40 is a little disturbing for me, and this is why :
This lens is maybe excellent, but Oly didn't try to control distortion anymore, they just remove it within the camera with a lens profile and post processiong, and frankly, this is odd.
Other brands didn't correct distortion with a lens profile and post-porcess, but with a better otical formula...

I agree, but i don't like that "post-processing philosophy".

But why not the 20Mpxl sensor with Dual AF ? It would fit perfectly a...mirrorless.

love2travelfar: amazing innovation! Great job Canon.

Being sarcastic with such product is indeed easy, but hey, Canon is the first photo company, i guess they can support some sarcasms. ;)

Couscousdelight: One more time : These are NOT HDR !
These are tonemapped Jpgs made with HDR files !

Not at all, it's not the same result...
TRue HDR are coded from 16 to 64 or 128 bits/color, jpg are stuck to 8bit/color, so it's far from the same...

Why not Baccarat, Lalique, Daum, Saint-Louis or d'Arques, which are a lot more prestigious and creative than Swarowsky ?

Swarowsky is like" mac donald" in the crystal world....

In reply to:

photofan1986: If IQ was on par with XZ-2, it would be nice, but from the samples here it does not come close. I wonder why the images are so soft.

It's maybe not a sensor but a lens problem.

Ayoh: Is the in body AF motor quieter than the k-5 series?

Ayoh, you can check the effect of the new WB system here :
http://www.pentax**forums.com/forums/pentax-k-3/239050-pentax-k-3-hands-sample-photos.html (remove **)
It's a WB adjusted by zone, it's pretty nice, i guess.
