If light is great - it is possible to make great photos almost with any camera.

Astroguy40: Hi i have had a look at the comments here and can anyone tell me if i am better off for getting the Pentax or the Nikon d810A for astrophotography and video?
I have heard with the nikon there's no way you can use it for normal landscape or wildlife photography as you will have a run of colours all over the picture but the pentax can be used for both so my concern with teh pentax is that as the sensor is not persificly made for astrophotography and is not rendered useless for any other type of photography and video says the picture quality will not be as awesome as the Nikon D810A heres the link for the D810A http://www.nikonusa.com/en/nikon-products/product/dslr-cameras/d810a.html

It is not possible to say anything, because Pentax is not on market yet. At least Pentax is much stronger by ISO & it mooves sensor with mooving of Earth .. so the photo of stars should be (theoretical) much sharper

Here you can see the list of all lenses which can be used on K-1 (& other K-bodies) .. pretty impressing list .. isnt it.

http://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/169-pentax-full-frame/313830-current-pentax-k-ff-lenses-overview-picture.html

I wonder which Canon, Nikon, Sony & others can show souch a list of lenses usable in only one of their bodies ... not all body-models made in last decade ...

Kostasm: R192 G13 B69 trousers
R254 G0 B42 pin on the road
R238 G0 B28 red buttons on the motorcycle

Numbers tell the truth.
Those reds are shifted to magenta.

I'm not blaming the camera, maybe it's the raw conversion.

@ F. E.
Great explanation! Tnx!

Some people just do not have enough photo-experiences & some as you - do.

In reply to:

AndroC: "Ricoh got back to us as of March 3, 2016 and has agreed to allow us to publish the K-1 samples here at a resolution of 2000px on the longest side."

Speaking as somebody who is keenly interested in moving to the K1 from my beloved Sony A850, I am disturbed by the question of why Ricoh is restricting resolution on published images. After all, it is only a matter of two or three weeks before the camera is available - are they seriously going to make firmware changes in the short time before that, and produce stunningly much better images? I find this strange. Would it not be more convincing to show the full detail of what this camera may do?

The answer is very simple:

that is called "marketing"
&
Ricoh has here a very good strategy. They do unusual movemnts just to stay with K-1 in the center of public attention & thereby raising the pressure before "explosion" (read: the arrival on the market).
:o)))
Right?

You can see this presure & jitters of all commentators here.

photogeek: Or you could just stick your lens in a thick cotton sock. The lenses are pretty tough, so they tend to do fine with fairly minimal protection. The sock protects the lens from rubbing against other lenses in the bag, if you care about cosmetics. Added benefit: you can wear it if you run out of clean socks.

@Grey...
Right - if you do not use lens-caps.

dynaxx: I expect wafflle in a brief "hands-on" but this is poorly-written waffle.

"So, then, let's talk about what it's like to use some old manual-focus primes on this 36MP digital beast. In two words, it's pretty good."

"And for those of us on the sidelines who perhaps shoot different systems, the Pentax K-1 represents a great many things."

A chatty style is fine for chit-chat but I found reading this piece tedious and very heavy going.

@ dynaxx
You'll get your satisffaction in near future - I am sure.
:o)
We all must just wait a few weeks moore that DP gets a production piece of K-1.
So ... be patient.
:o)))
I admit - I am nervous too & waiting is hard 4 me.

I do not understand that poor minded criticizm .. WHAT do you expect from photographer who gets a totaly unknown new camera for a limited field-test for a few hours?

Great .. I already send the link of your article to our Pentax representative in Slovenia, because they do not know anything about that feature. So I hope that they will use the link & information on their website

In reply to:

odpisan: Negative comments about K-1 have all only one reason:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CaNik Co. got kicked in the balls with K-1 & now they are all histerical. So they send souch prepayed guys on internet to write stupid comments & to provoke us - Pentax-lovers.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have only one question:

HOW MANY PENTAXIANS has wrote negative comments under articles about Ca-Nik camera-tests?

The answer is:
Nobody, niemand, personne, nihče, nessuno, niko, nikto ... !!!

Do you understand the fear of Nikon/Canon (owners)?
They are loosing their overpaid immage & they are histerical .. that is the only truth.

@ aris14
I am glad that you know the future. I don't.

But as a very old man I can tell you that future reality is much moore crazy as any science fiction. 4 example: do you remeber the films
Back to the Future
have you seen there any mobiles, tablets ..?
:o)))
but there I saw a skate bord which hanged in the air wthout wheels - today this the most crazy thing in film - is reality.
So - It is hard to say ...

"Catch-in focus" by Pentax K-1?
Yesss !

It is wonderful feature & with little of practice you can take pictures with MF-lenses almost fast as with AF.

http://www.gyes.eu/photo/catchinfocus.htm

http://www.pentaxforums.com/articles/photo-articles/catch-in-focus-tutorial.html

I - personaly - use MF-lens in this way:
- swich on MF
- put MF-lens on body
- turn on camera (body)
- select proper focal lenght in menu
- put swich on body on AF (!!!)
- hold the trigger permanetly (camera does not take a photo)
- turn focus ring
- when object is in focus camera automaticly takes photo & stops when object is out of frocus again

Its is almost fast as with AF-lens.

No other brand has this unique Pentax feature.

You must only play a little bit with your camera to get used of this feature.

In reply to:

dagobah: I couldn't find it in the first impressions review -- but does K-1 have focus peaking like the K-3 I/II? That really helps with legacy glass.

Another link from Pentax-forums:

http://www.pentaxforums.com/articles/photo-articles/catch-in-focus-tutorial.html

If they want that all K-mount lenses work properly this feature is included also by K-1.
