  • Nope, I don't think you're missing anything. It's an older way that some got used to. I started with nothing, no info but dials, then the superA had a tiny lcd with a bit of info, then the Z-1 had ...
  • I do think Pentax is leaking customers, I just hope it's also bringing in new. A uk forum I visit seems to have become a for sale forum, with a couple of other posts. However we are all guilty of ...
  • Don't forget you can easily use your Pentax fit old lenses on mirrorless cameras with an adaptor. You've got choices from Olympus/Panasonic/Sony plus Canon and Nikon. They range from 2.7x ...
  • Mine wasn't exactly the same, as my viewfinder was also very dim and the mirror sometimes stuck partially open and the camera would not lock af. However the temp fix was to gently move the ...
  • It's not hard to find evidence that Pentax do noise reduction to their raw, just look at dxomark and they show where they can detect it (K-30 - 3200 and up). Then look at dpreview studio ...
  • I think it would be this one from my visit to the Moray Firth in Scotland this year. These wild dolphins come very close to the coast where hordes of spectators enjoy their daily visits. The ...
  • I can only give you my supposition. Canon and Nikon have targeted professional wildlife and sports photographers. They have a large number of high cost professional telephoto and super telephoto ...
  • I would avoid the 40D as it does not have micro adjust af (AF MFA) for lens calibration. The only aps-c bodies from Canon I would touch would be the 50D, 70D and 7D as they all have af MFA. I ...
  • I finally found some use for my camo netting today.... sneaking up on these. I still had to crop to get the above shots. I'll either have to get closer or get a longer lens... 600mm eqv. still not ...
  • I don't know if they should have documented it before sending, all I was doing was relating what happened with mine. However if they don't document it then they leave themselves open to ...
  • Surely the shop wrote down the fault with the camera in the repair documentation along with the cameras overall condition? This would note any obvious body faults. I know when I had my K30 ...
  • I know it can sound daunting for the first time, but all it is is adding in an offset in the camera for a lens. So all you do is remove this offset. If you decide that all the lens need the same ...
  • It could of course just be the fact that it is sample variation. However I wonder about the DXO raw converter they use to do this testing. I know that adobe have a lot more profile options ...
  • Wow, at that price I don't understand why everyone in the US doesn't have a K5IIs. I know if it was that price here (UK) I'd jump without a 2nd thought and I don't need one.
  • wow, is this the rare case where we in the UK are getting a bargain compared to the rest of the world. UK £2799 + £30 delivery is USD $4442 new! Shame it's not something I want.
  • Replied in I am seeing
    Got to agree with you on both counts.
  • Replied in ^this.
    Nope. Probably should have said 'My replacement' rather than 'The replacement' and 'my first' rather than 'the first'.
  • Replied in ^this.
    I've got/used panasonic GF-2, G2, G5 and olympus E-PM2 and have to say the sensor on the E-PM2 is lovely at higher ISO, however the first E-PM2 had horrible shutter shock. I wasn't even looking ...
  • Where does the Samsung GX-1L and GX-1S fit in? They were re-branded Pentax *ist DL/DS versions which I always thought were before the GX-10.
  • Replied in Leopold
    Thanks, very helpful link that I'd never come across before.
