  • True.  If you compare outside Pentax the K3/K5II/K5IIs beat the Nikon D7100 which only focus down to -2 EV, and the Canon 7D only focus down to -1/2 EV.  The 6D will focus down to -3 EV but only ...
  • Sad but true if you're referring to the US and maybe Europe.  I still think they'll do better in Asia and India with this model.
  • I think most are collecting their 645 and 67 lenses on the used market.  So the expensive lenses issue is moot.  I'm on the side that believes unless you're doing telephoto work, bigger sensors ...
  • 645Z was still back-ordered at B&H last I checked.  (Not that it matters to me ;-) )
  • We don't actually know if or what choice they've made.  The rumour is Ricoh was taken by surprise when they sold out the first factory run of 645Z and green lighted a second production run of 645Z ...
  • I'm leaning that way also.  The kind of consumer tele-zooms I'd be using (unless the new Pentax 100-400 is a constant f/4 for under 1000$ :-D )  seem so starved for light that a CPL takes too much ...
  • They may have done with FW 1.11.  I've taken about 1000 shots since installing FW 1.11 with no "mirror flap" instances (but it only happened once before since I owned the camera anyway).  K5 ...
  • You won't be disappointed IMO.  I've been eyeing that 300 myself for a while (I'll probably be waiting a bit longer on mine) so post some shots once your rig is set up and let us know how it does. ...
  • I agree but was comparing to the Canon sitting beside it and know in my head it is a 100% pentaprism.
  • Whoops!  f/4 on the first tiny dragon that certainly lets the wind in play.  But the lens is really sharp there.  Don't know if the CPL costs much IQ.
  • Thank you.  I checked they were shot with 0 eV bias so the K3 metering gets a lot of credit.  I might have pulled them right 1/3 to 1/2 before down rezzing for the internet.  I would probably do ...
  • Thank you.  The second shot with the light coloured flower against white/orange BG may be illustrating your point about light coloured subjects backlit (by sky) also.  What about trying to get ...
  • Created discussions CPL pros & cons
    I took these shots with a B+W KSM CPL filter on a Sigma 70mm EX DG macro via a 62/67mm step up ring. I thought the filter punched the colour up a bit but might have confused the AF a bit. ...
  • That Pentax VF looks huge!
  • I thought the diameter of the front element had more to do with possible max aperture.  For instance the (5500$) EF 200 f/2 has about a 102mm front element vs. the Pentax 200 f/2.8 with its 77mm ...
  • It is not WR and I believe the AF point selected doesn't show in the VF.  The K50 has both of those features.  Otherwise, (and if you're fine with that) I believe it would be a fine camera and ...
  • Hey.  You made me run and double check my two Sigma lenses and confirm they work fine with the FW 1.11 so it's all good.  ;-)
  • Don't know.  The 5100 was an older af system and 16MP sensor.  Of all those the K50 is the newest body isn't it?  Not enough K50 users on here to give feed back unless one of them wants to chime ...
  • I've never used either lens. I did notice a few things that might matter to you. I used Nikon systems for ten years and I'm not biased against Nikon glass. Most of it is very nice. Both lenses cost ...
  • Replied in Pentax K- S1
    Scorn seems mostly coming from you, IMO.  Just trying to run up the thread hit count?
