  • What the hay? Is this not THE SAME LENS that Tamron announced something like two years ago? It's been listed at B&H, as an upcoming product, the whole time. I waited, and waited... I was hoping...

  • I look at this wistfully. I've got both the original Lytro camera and the Fujifilm REAL 3D W3. I've got to say, the Fujifilm has proven far more compelling to me. As a 3D pocket camera, it's...

  • I don't understand all the ragging on the K-01.  I've gotten pretty attached to mine.  (I sometimes wish I'd got a black one instead of yellow.  I think the black ones look sort of bauhaus, like ...
  • That's sort of how I felt as soon as I got a good look at its layout and controls.  It reminds me of my old Pentax ZX-5n film SLR, which I always thought was a brilliant design.  I just never ...
  • I'm just amazed that we've come to a point with the technology where someone can look at the image output from an E-M1 and find it deficient in some way.
  • Replied in Pentax MX-1
    I just got a Pentax MX-1 at the $200 closeout price.  It's pleasant to hold and operate, has good controls, very nice lens.  The sensor is small, but the fast lens somewhat compensates.  Should be ...
  • Replied in "Not yet."
    I think the key sentence from that interview was:  "Not yet." EVF technology just keeps getting better while pentaprisms are pretty much what they've always been.  More and more people are getting ...
  • I've no doubt Pentax will make a conventional FF DSLR first.  If there is a mirrorless FF camera at all, it will follow some time later.  They aren't going to dump the product category (DSLRs) ...
  • I also have a K100D, which was great in its day, but the world has moved on.  To me a new K-50 or perhaps a used (or closeout) K-30 would seem like an obvious choice.  It's amazing how much these ...
  • I learned photography in the early 1980s with a Sears KS-2, which was in fact a re-branded Ricoh XR-7.  It was their top of the line in those days, not cheap at all, and it accepted K-mount ...
  • Too true.  If you're trying to track a moving object with your camera, IS can even cause blur.  For example, a vehicle is passing by, and you get a shot with the background sharp and the vehicle ...
  • I've only recently discovered MySets here with my E-M5.  I've got MySet 1 for my typical everyday settings, and MySet 2 for action snapshots.  It sets shutter speed to 1/1000th, high speed shutter ...
  • I got a "Racer-X" strap from Couch (http://www.couchguitarstraps.com). Check it: Not the most high-tech, but they do look good and are comfortable, and long enough to wear over the shoulder if you ...
  • I'm looking at what they've done with the controls. I like getting rid of the typical PASM mode dial. The dedicated dials for shutter speed and exposure compensation remind me of my old Pentax...

  • Replied in Hang in there!
    Yes.  The key here is, firstly, to put in the time and research to set all those preference options -- and if you're like me, it's going to take a few weeks, not days, before you're completely ...
  • I think I've had the EM5 long enough to form a solid opinion of it.  It's not perfect, and there are some things about it that nag me, but they're things I can live with.  I'm sticking with it, ...
