  • Similar reasoning lead me to supplement my Pentax with an NEX-6. I missed shooting waist-level with my Mamiya 645 film camera (until I dropped it while drunk - live & learn).
  • Thank you. Looks like what we'd expect from an Ltd - saturation, contrast, even across the frame & impressively sharp from the get-go. But that barrel distortion... Have you tried the lens ...
  • I also noticed the moderate increase in noise over my K5, although it might be as much confirmation bias as anything real. I could be scientific about it but don't think I will because it seems to ...
  • Created user reviews Better in every way
    The early impressions after 3 weeks of casual snapping are very positive. This body is an upgrade to a K-5 which got used a lot over 2+ years. Pentax/Ricoh made numerous upgrades to a very good ...
  • Very true, sadly the wonderful FA31 Ltd. was beyond my budget & although it would look the business on my grey K-3 (*) the portability this dinky lens affords shouldn't be overlooked. Plus I form ...
  • I faced the same dilemma earlier this year & ended up buying 2 Sigmas: the 8-16mm & 1:3.5/10-20. I still couldn't choose between them if I had to. Briefly the pros & cons are: 8-16 has incredible ...
  • Created user reviews Exceptional glass
    This lens is something else. I have some good lenses but when I looked at my first photos with this one I was worried I'd end up cutting my retina - it is sharp . I have yet to test it properly on ...
  • Created user reviews Fascinating distortion
    There's just nothing like a fisheye lens & this is a really good example. Sharp, saturated images without flare - it's a good lens. Don't worry about manual focus & aperture, this isn't really a ...
  • Created user reviews Brilliant if it was 28mm
    This is slightly frustrating lens. It is pretty sharp & has classic Pentax saturation but what sets it apart is it's size. Even with a slim-line filter & the hood attached the camera slips into a ...
  • Created user reviews Useful normal prime.
    I get on very well with this lens. It isn't technically perfect as it shows significant corner softness wide open, but this has never been a problem in real life. Colours, saturation, bokeh ...
  • Photo #224 doesn't look shaky, it looks slightly out of focus. If there was a problem with the SR I'd expect to see smearing in one direction. When I've done similar tripod-mounted testing to ...
  • Created user reviews The good bits are great...
    This is a summary after 7 months use of the NEX-6 + 16-50 OSS. This camera meets the prime consideration - it takes great pictures, clear, detailed, good saturation & not particularly noisy. ...
  • Commented on Sky Breath in the The Moving Sky challenge

    From the exposure details I take it this is shot in the infra-red spectrum, I'd appreciate knowing the IR filter used. Love the shot - really beautiful.
