In dpreview's X-M1 review, they say: While Fujifilm offers two choices for how quickly the camera starts up (found in the Power Management menu), we found no appreciable difference in startup speed. The X-M1 starts up in just under one second. If the camera has gone into power saving mode, you must hold the shutter release down for a second to wake it up, which is too long in our opinion. ... Shot-to-shot speeds hung around the 1.1 second mark, regardless of the image quality setting. The...

I love the idea of a small FF system, and will get the A7 with 35mmf2.8. But I don't need a small system every time I pick up the camera. I am having a new baby this winter, which probably means I am going to be hunkered down for a few months changing diapers and taking pictures (not together), so I am looking for a fast lens for indoor kid shots in some less than perfect lighting. Because it's in my house, I don't care about size of lenses. What would you get, the 55f1.8, or would you go...

Hi again... :-), In my experience the K01 decides what to focus on, in a variable way. Is this normal and is there a setting to use a fixed focus point in auto/green mode ? In Av or Tv or other modes i can choose what kind of focus point and it's even possible to place the focus point, fixed, off-centre on the display etc.. But ... NOT in AUTO/GREEN mode, in my experience, or.... am i overlooking something ???? Please advise and thanks in advance. --;-) rgrds. Henk (K-01, K20D&DBG-2,...

Hi everybody, When i put my K01 in Av mode, with AF/s, and i move the cam i hear, at about every move, a klicking-like sound. In finding out how come i looked into the lens and think i saw the diaphragma opening and closing every time i point and something else. This is done automatically by the cam: i'm leaving all buttons free. Is this a standard 'thing' or else ? Hope somebody here knows the answer and thanks in advance. :-) --;-) rgrds. Henk (K-01, K20D&DBG-2, GF2+14042X & LBA).

I am thinking of using a Leitax (Leitax.com) adapter to use Leica R lenses on Pentax K-01. I know autofocus would  not work. In such a case: 1. Could one focus using the manual focus on the LCD? 2. Would focus-peaking and image magnification work? Any comments would be helpful. Thanks.--babujr

I have a k-01, and have been toying with the idea of getting a MX-1 for something small with a zoom for vacation snaps instead of changing primes like I do now and lugging a bag of lenses around. My other choice is to buy something like the 18-135mm for the k-01, but I am not thrilled about the size. Also, my main grip about the k-01 is shutter lag and slow it is to catch focus sometimes. With a toddler, my keeper rate is way lower than I'd like and I am missing precious moments. Anyone have...

I dropped my K-01 with the 35mm f2.4 on it (about 600 mm onto a carpeted floor) and the lens will no longer autofocus. Other lenses are OK so it's not the K-01. It can be manually focused but it's really, really stiff. Any suggestions before I send it to Pentax please?

I have a K-01 and would like to know if there is a focus adjustment in that body?  This is in reference to reading reviews of the Tamron 17-50 2.8 lens where reviewers were saying that they added +3 to a K-5 or -10 to a Kr to correct the focus with the Tamron lens.  Also indicated that the Kx body did not have that capability.  Any K-01 users out there using the Tamron 17-50?

Hello, I need to record some long-ish performances (our ensemble), and the camera will be unattended (= starts 5'-10' prior the beginning of the show, ends when I can go back to it). I was considering a camcorder (Canon Legria HF-R406), which ticks all the boxes, including price (audio will be a separate thing). Then I though that I already have a lot of excellent Pentax lenses and started looking at the K-01 (under 300E, fantastic still camera IMHO), but it apparently has a 25' limitation on...
