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!
I gave this five stars.
This photo epitomizes everything that is good, enduring and solid about Odessa.
A wallhanger for sure!
Lots of jealous voters, apparently...
Thanks, everybody. I've spent quite a few hours over the past 4-5 years chasing these little guys. Thare amazing little creatures.
A well-deserved win. My first choice overall.
Donnie G: The larger sensor and more reasonable pricing should make this camera competitive with Canon and Nikon's enthusiasts P&S offerings. The only problem I see is that the market for those cameras is shrinking, not growing. So unless Pentax can grab a substantial share of that market, I don't see how this camera will help their bottom line. Still, I hope it does well.
Raist - when you say "helping Pentax's bottom line", do you mean the Q sales are helping to reduce the losses that Pentax is generating for Ricoh?
Thanks Eddie. This makes the frozen fingers less painful. ;)
Excellent colours, comp, and sharpness. Well done!
SungiBr: Ricoh is unleashing all products Hoya promissed ages ago. And took less than two years to do it.
They seems to be listening all of us pentax users, and are showing some serious commintment to pentax user base
Richard - you didn't know Pentax users have been screaming for (and dreaming of) a toy cap lens for the Q for "ages"?
This is BIG!
Much more important than, say, a TC. Or a viable extreme telephoto. Or a FF camera. Or...
Thanks, ysal. It's a whole class below Walter's (Toxiq's) winning entry, so I don't mind the placing.
Yikes! 1/2 and 1 star votes.
Hopefully this is because the voters mistakenly believed they were looking at multiple leaves. This is actually a single compound leaf.
minturnino: Finally!!!!! Great Pentax!!! While Tamron do not update the lens to Pentax Camera..... Pentax solve the gap!I hope that the cost is fair and not excessive in relation to the competition!
Hmmm... The Tamron is available for other mounts (on eBay) for $500.00. If Pentax can rebadge other companys' designs and get a 60% premium for the same lens, more power to them!
A Snapping Turtle is a TURTLE. Surprise!!!
Well, genius: Sorry to disilusion you but this IS a turtle. A female Snapping Turtle. She's returning to the marsh after laying her eggs.
Thanks for the compliments.
DeedleD: I used single (center point) AF with the camera in CAF. I'm able to get near 100% in focus shots of a 20 shot sequence of my dog running directly at me once the focus locks on.
Too bad the head is soft.
I thought this would have finished even higher. Excellent composition and subject. A bit more DOF would have made this a top three shot in my opinion.
got my highest vote. Excellent composition and exposure.
I love the ear tufts on your European squirrels!
