simple yet effective
marike6: The K-5 is such a beautiful camera. Silver or black, pancake lens, kit zoom, it doesn't matter, it's just a perfect size and design. I shot with a Pentax K20D for a couple of years, but every time I see a K-5 article, I am truly sorry I no longer have my Pentax gear.
But D800 is still on preorder?
Dave Oddie: Pentax seem to have forgotten the K-5 is an aps-c camera when designing the 40mm lens.
On a full frame camera that focal length is great (I owned an Zuiko 40mm F2 in film days) but on aps-c with a f.o.v equal to 60mm I can't think of a more useless specification for a prime lens.
Pentax are not the only one to do this. Sony brought out a 50mm "portrait" lens when that is really too short to be a classic portrait lens with a f.o.v of a 75mm.
They are both far too conservative and seem to think they should stick to focal lengths that are really for full frame rather than develop specifically for aps-c. A 28mm prime which is approx 42mm f.o.v would have been much better.
Yes, same thought here. 60mm is not all around lens. Anything below 50mm would be great.
FrankyChing: 相機還未上市，firmware 就已經可以更新，看來廠家對這相機有點重視。
yeah, i know i know.
magnumgf: Why can't they make things right from day 1? If I buy a camera I expect to use it. Not spend my time trolling the interent for firmware updates...
Yes, great idea, tell this to Microsoft! :-)
