    By definition, 'brand fans' (your words) already know the score. So, how does your observation advance anything? Again, just curious... M

    May I ask why you felt compelled to respond this way? Just curious... M
  • Agree. Your key word is "good" would you *not* agree? For me, this 'bout sums it up... http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2015/06/new-times-call-for-new-decisions.html Cheers... M

    Perhaps, Pentax photographers have more "daring do...", are more passionate about photography (per se) and are willing to take on the challenge offered by the most difficult subjects. If they used ...

    Help me understand... The title of this thread (your words) suggests Pentax is selling a flawed product. Your proof is a string of bad experiences you are having using an unsupported lens paired ...
  • "... might be considered below average..." as determined by your measurements are your words, *not* mine. If "You're starting to confirm the lens fault suspicion..." (my wods) is *not* a fair ...
  • I'm looking forward to hearing more, too... In the meantime, what's the 'work around'? Cheers... M

  • May I ask why you feel Pentax owns the problem solution and not Sigma? Since when does Pentax have an obligation to support third party produced accessories/lenses like Sigma? Could it be that the ...

    Warning... :-x Your photographs are only successful because you have talent and know how to make use of it. For others, like me, there's no hope... ;-) Cheers... M
  • Try this in LR (should take less than 10 seconds)... 1. Open the DNG file in the DEVELOP module. 2. Open the DETAIL dialog box and go to the Noise Reduction set of sliders. 3. Press the "Alt" key ...
  • ...devastated and victimized. Thank you for the clarification as your first description totally escaped me. So, help me understand... You, being the consummate professional... May I ask why you ...
  • Thanks for sharing. On my monitor, the basket weave of the lamp shade appears 'crisper (?)' as does the overall image with the Pix Shift version. Both images look pretty good. Guess the ol' K-3 ...
