  • They might have done but AFAIN if 1.03 didn't fix the drift then the hardware needed replacing as either the WB sensor had failed or the CA in the AF module. Perhaps I'm cynical but I can't see ...
  • (1) 2014.03.06 PENTAX K-5 FIRMWARE UPDATE VERSION (1.16) I doubt this update had any effect on tungsten AF accuracy as it was purely to enable HD ...

  • Whilst your undoubtedly right and correctly used manual tools can lead to superior results to badly used automation. But where badly used automation will lead to mediocrity badly used manual tools ...
  • As a 1.x0 update indicates (from watching older firmware releases and feature sets)new functionality that means the support for af buttons on lens is now included and the new zooms release to sale ...
  • All Pentax dslr's have two mirrors (as do most slr's) primary (5) which directs light to the viewfinder and secondary (6) just behind to direct light to the AF models http://kmp.bdimitrov.de/techno ...

    I agree with all your points, Especially  the 'not for me' which is what make a wise man who tempers self knowledge with recommendations

    Here are 3 consumer lens doing linear AF Pentax Consumer AF video comare Irrelevant of body do you think users of these lens will have different views on Pentax AF ? As both the 18-250 lens are ...
  • Replied in K5 used or....
    The k30/50 have all the advances of the K5ii and k3 AF module but do not have f2.8 sensors or high performance cpu/motors They should focus better than the K5 but worse than K3/k5ii with fast lens ...
  • Replied in K5 used or....
    Never the less the k5 is capable of better IQ than any aps-C camera ever made even today.! So it still 'best in class' if taking the best quality pictures is your only concern, But as all cameras ...
  • Replied in K5 used or....
    Unless you can get a extended test period avoid the K5 There are many K5's out there that just wont focus accurately under low red light. If it FW only issue then even without the FW fix the ...
  • Well you've read all the maths and the area sizes but it hard to understand what that means and you already know as you say 'On paper' My take The K5 @iso80 shames my K3 with it greater tonality ...

  • The only issue I see using a modern decent zoom as a macro lens is never going to be 'sharpness' but focus plane. AFAIN no Zoom has ever been designed with a flat focal plane so at macro distances ...
  • I would anticipate a FW update to support the AF buttons and Custom AF button on the 150-450 unless it was wrapped in 1.11
  • Well don't forget at teh same period Nikon d600's were happily squirting oil all over their sensors and D800 were failing to focus with Lh sensors on the same plane I think all manufacturer when ...
  • You did what I would have done took a pragmatic view and action that worked for yourself. Between Oct 2010 and Jan 2011 Pentax gave me 3 replacements for 'pearled' sensor I could have got really ...
  • I think besides the obvious issue the early K5's had later complaints were the same as all contemporary cameras of the time. The amazing iso sensor performance of theses cameras allowed  ...
  • I'm not sure they didn't ... At least within the expectation of warranty (design flaws) There appears to have been two issue with the K causing poor Red light AF The + in the Safox nomenclature ...
