  • The 15mmLtd. is not just a little wider than 21mm; it is much wider.   It is the one lens that no Pentax system should be without.
  • I've been waiting for the big truck with the new cargo to pull up and start unloading.  Click-thru to Amazon from DPR has shown a place called TheCameraBox having "Only XX left in stock" for ...
  • ice
  • Thanks for confirming my advice.
  • I have the silver K-3.  I like it and have no regrets about buying it.  I'm not struck on "colors" so much that I would get a K-S1 "Sweets" collection, but I don't care much for black blobs ...
  • Tilted to 75° (flat), that flash will fit in a trouser pocket.   Seems like it was designed to travel with everything from the Q system to the flashless FF (although it's not a wireless controller).
  • Indeed, but the OP has the wide zoom sigma that he says he doesn't use very much.  I think the 20-40 fits his need, and the lens got a somewhat less than accurate initial response.  I find it ...
  • "k-50 or similar range" -- I would definitely go with the K-S2 in that case, which actually bumps that range up a healthy notch with some very nice new features and the best launch price Pentax ...
  • For not much more than that 21 or 15 you are considering, the Pentax 20-40 Ltd. give you good IQ and covers the range-gap you mention, with excellent build and weatherproofing.  I get excellent ...
  • Definitely the PZ-1P and MZ-S. The PZ's introduced hyper program, MZ-S was the first model with the green hyper-program button we know to this day, and the MZ-S printed your exposure information ...
  • That's a rare sight.  Congratulations for being able to get to Cuba in the first place, and with such a good load of gear to make this shot possible.  Nice work.
  • I just reviewed my Q7 manual and it says the onboard flash is prohibited from firing by any flash on the hot shoe.  The new flash will probably follow that rule, but if Pentax is listening and can ...
  • I'll let Ricoh explain, from their K-3 page: "The K-3 continuously records as many as 22 images in the RAW format or 60 images in the JPEG format* in a single sequence. This is made possible ...
  • I have no doubt whatsoever that it is a 645Z-type tilt screen.
  • K-3.  The 2 card slots is great.  I send RAW to one, jpeg to the other, giving me a safety backup in case the RAW card goes bad or gets lost (I indeed had a card go bad once, so I'm skittish).  Or ...
  • Replied in K-3 vs K-S2
    I find the dual SD slots very useful, in a couple of ways.  I also like the way the high-end Pentax bodies put the ISO button on top, not on the 4-way.  Other interface features seem more elegant ...
  • You miss the disco lights? I thought you hated them.

    DPR's consistent backhanded digs at Pentax probably encourage the other trolls to follow suite. It seems unprofessional to me, at the very...

  • I don't think Pentax "rush-developed" the K-S2 after the K-S1. The K-S2 is so well-specified -- and already in limited production to produce samples and show models -- that it doesn't seem ...
  • It's a "normal" with some zooming range.  That's how I see it, anyway.   It's better than my 21, which I gifted away.  Here's my brick wall test showing it very good to the edges and corners.
  • The new Pentax flash is perfect for the Q-system.   Takes 2 AAA batteries and thus is very compact.   Tilts for bounce, and might operate simultaneous with the on-board pop-up for bounce contrast ...
