  • Thank you for posting these.  So much snow!  This coastal boy is off to get a coffee to warm up just looking at them.  :-)
  • Thin depth of field?  Yes.  Not much way around that. Flexibility?  Large, fast lenses are not easy to have with you.  Their ability to blur background (flexible) is offset by how large they are to ...
  • Agree.  The DA 15 works really well.  And it seems like the difference between the 15mm and an 11-18 is about two, maybe three small steps,  or at least it seems that way.   And, yes,  it fits ...
  • My current approach is in line with Phil's as primes in general behave better and in my experience are more "robust" than zooms.  My equipment gets beat around some. Yet, there are times I think a ...
  • LOL.  And now those little ticky-tackys sell for $ a million plus south of SF.  I bet Malvina Reynolds (writer) and Pete Seeger never would have imagined that in 1963.
  • Created discussion thread Heading toward Spring
    We have finally had a bit of rain this season, and the grass is turning green.  It gives me hope that 2021 will be a somewhat more "normal"  year...
  • Nice winter images. But I do still miss the bicycle...
  • Replied in Out of Stock
    Street shooters will have to get used to people running up to them shouting,  "Take my picture,  take my picture !!"
  • Nice image !!  Can't make any intelligent comment on external shutter releases,  but as regards the phone,  many's the time I'd like to toss mine into that river.  :-)
  • Totally agree with both of you on this. I can certainly live with whatever it is causing the K3iii delay as long as it isn't the "end of Pentax."  That would be tragic [for me].   Because if you ...
  • That warm light in the center takes the cold away.  I like it.
  • Replied in Snowmageddon
    I like this image very much.
  • Operative word here is "back in the day."  Because in the 1980s I saw Nikon eat Leica's lunch in the press markets,  and then watched Canon go after Nikon.  But Leica is smart enough to play on ...
  • I suspect Pentax management would be very pleased to be compared to Leica.  Leica has a long history in photography (as does Pentax), many famous photographers have used Leicas.  Over the years I ...
  • LOL, thanks.  Maybe I'll borrow my daughter's "selfie stick" and lift her cell phone over the fence for a look.  Her phone is almost 6 months old so it's probably due for an upgrade. I'd hate to ...
  • Created discussion thread Taking KP on a walk
    I'm beginning to get used to the smaller form factor of the KP as opposed to my K5.  The KP with a small prime is pretty easy to carry.  Not quite in a medium coat pocket, but with a decent strap ...
  • No critique here, I like it as well. For me,  getting good results in color while street shooting is more difficult than B/W, and this one is interesting.  To my eyes it works well.
  • In terms of ergonomics, as compared to my K5, the camera is simply smaller.  That does give it a slightly different "feel,"  but I got used to it fairly quickly.  It still feels like a Pentax, ...
  • LOL, yes there's some logic there.  I opted to buy a KP a few months ago at discounted price and like it enough to use while awaiting Bob5050's review of his new  K3iii  once received  :-D With the ...
  • Yes.  Another endorsement.  My latest twist is the 20/40 DA Ltd on KP (or K whatever) with 15 and 70 in each pocket.  As they say, "the camera with you is..."   and this camera is easy to be with ...
