DDWD10: C'mon, K-mount. Us Pentaxians are counting on you, Sigma, to produce the lenses Ricoh won't!
Yes, DDWD10, but Ricoh seems to have Tamron producing their new lenses - not Sigma, unfortunately.
Well deserved win.
brendon1000: Wow. More than anything I am seriously impressed with the price ! At this price I don't see why anyone would buy a 3rd party lens.
"At this price I don't see why anyone would buy a 3rd party lens."
Huh? This IS a 3rd party lens - made by Tamron.
Mark Parren: Looks like you are using a Native Watercraft Kayak, very sable! Have had mine for years, and venture out with thousands of dollars of photo equipment without worry.
Agree. I spend hundreds of hours each year in marshes, ponds, small lakes and bigger waters (when calm) taking wildlife shots from my Ultimate 12. I love the fact you can even stand up when necessary to get shots.
It seems a lot of the voters have no idea what makes a good photo. Pictures of honeybees sitting on a flower are a dime a dozen. Your shot is unique and tells a story from a perspective rarely seen.
I believe I gave it a well-deserved 4.5.
If there is an insect there, it must be VERY tiny. :)
Clint009: Bigger is not better.

Terrible comparison review!
I did learn that Pentax is "owned by RyeKoff", though.
Class A: Cool, this lens looks like my next buy for the forthcoming Pentax FF.
" The lens will be available in Sigma and Canon mounts next month, in Nikon mounts in April, and in Sony mounts later in the year". Will you be using some kind of adapter?
Jim Salvas: One guy just uploaded 24 photos with this tag. That's pretty needy, fella.
@ Joerg V.
Unfortunately, when you combine 24 average-quality shots, you get one large average-quality shot.
Wow! Your BEST SHOT of 2014 comes in 24 parts.
Thank-you, Ruth. Much appreciated.
James Bligh: I cannot find a word about internal reflection and shutter shock issues of D750 in this review. Please point me to it if I missed it. When dpreview never even mentions (not to say evaluate) the issues, you can no longer say dpreview review is a comprehensive review which I think is a shame. Once renowned for its objective reviews and a comprehensive source of information about camera gears I am afraid dpreview has fallen into the realm of mediocrity many review sites share. The present generation of dpreview staffs may have wasted their talent and ruined the reputation of dpreview. Phil Askey will lament over it seeing the prestige he has built up tainted.
It would appear that either NWT is short for NitWiT, or he has some weird agenda.
A fantastic shot and my choice to win.
Pity the fool who gave this shot a "1".
EssexAsh: is there no submission limit or can we just spam the thread with endless tedious snaps of the same person just at a slightly different angle?
Obviously. if you look at the submissions, "spamming with endless tedious snaps of the same person just at a slightly different angle" is perfectly acceptable.
Thanks for the good words, everyone!
Nice possum. I wouldn't want one in my house, though...
ysengrain: And what about somme incredible Zeiss lens ?
Hugo - are you serious? Have you heard of manufacturers' warranties? Amazon has a 30 day return/exchange program - as good as anywhere. And Amazon doesn't pay corporate taxes?
Wow! I've never seen piles of ladybugs.
Hopefully they are not the biting kind!
A well deserved win.
You're obviously familiar with the Park.
This is a close-up of the huge metal T-bone just inside the main gate, featuring the recent repairs.
I am so glad they didn't go ahead with their demolition plans for this iconic sculpture.
A couple of magnum rivets, and it's as good as new - there for future generations of Texans to enjoy!
