  • The 20-40 Limited is my "everyday"-lens... A bit costly, maybe. But if you look for quality (HD coating, WR, build), this lens makes for a very good "standard" lens.
  • I travelled to Greenland this year, luckily under very fair weather. Second-largest ice-shield after Antarctica. My standard lens was the F 28/2.8 (non-WR). What you will really need in the ...
  • @brendon "However as an APS-C user who has started using FF I would never want to stick to using APS-C if I can afford FF." I started with "full frame" (film) and prefer today's APS-C. I still have...

  • K-3 without hesitation. I returned my K-r with the SAFOX X Autofocus because of unreliable AF under artificial light. The K-5 uses thes same AF as the K-r (albeit an updated "+" version, that ...
  • Well, with precision electronics, I would only go with reputed bricks-and-mortar-dealers or with the really big ones (like amazon). The former will take back faulty gear anytime. Made this ...
  • Thx a lot! I want to return there.... maybe in winter when it gets really cold. In August we had some 8° Celsius during the day and around +/- zero at night. A warm summer climate, so to say... ;-)
  • Here is my favourite lonely bench of this summer. This bench in Ilulissat (Greenland) overlooks the icebergs flowing out of the fjord towards the sea. If you'd take boat from here and travel ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery

  • @ Mr. Tharp"...other systems, also based around 135-format ... don't have legions of APS-C lenses. Here's a hint-they don't need to!"

    Right, as long as you are willing to pay the price and carry...

  • Don't worry, you'll get over it some day... ;-) I just sold a Pentax F 28/2.8. Wasn't very easy as the F 28 is such a quality compact lens with 28mm being just right for a walk around lens on APS-C ...
  • Yet, the Pentax is still the most compact DSLR outside the 4/3 world. But still, I find the OM-D series VERY appealing. As a travel camera, the OM-D EM-5 or -10 (the latter very well priced, only ...
  • Uups... confused it with the K-r. Anyway, SAFOX IX AF was a lemon.
  • I'll undersign this. I owned a K-50 briefly, but returned it for a K7 because I was unhappy with focus under artificial light and especially with the loud shutter (the K7, predecessor of the K5, ...
  • I own the K7 (might upgrade to the K3 or its succesor) and just bought a EM-10. for my son. If pentax wouldn't exist, I would go with Olympus. Similar build quality, IQ is now very similr too ...
  • The Austrian Museum of Military History (www.hgm.at) together with the Austrian authority for the protection of national monuments (Bundesdenkmalamt) are organizing a photography contest about ...
  • If you find a well priced copy of the 50/1.4 I'd still go for it. You will always be able resell. I am fortunate to own a very good if not even perfect copy of this lens. It is one of the very few ...
  • Thanks a lot! The distortion correction was the culprit. Now everything is as it should be with a new Sandisk Extreme...
  • You would also turn off highlight and shadow correction? These two features seem to work better in camera with jpgs than trying to recover in PP.
