On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2652 comments in total)
In reply to:

JhvaElohimMeth: I sold my Pentax gear due to poor AF in almost every kind of light. As a wedding photographer that would be frustrating.

I feel very confident with Canon 6D... Pentax K1 and poor AF means lost pictures.
Bye Pentax, try to catch canikon in AF performance, and then we'll see!
I would like to return in Pentax world, I would like to try in a wedding the limited series... 31, 43 and 77mm. But if you are 10 years behind in terms of AF... there's no match!

I use just the center point with my 6D. Is fast, accurate and see everything in every light. Just like 5D mk iii (even a bit better in dim light, just to say...).

That's my experience. It has enough buffer for my needs, it's silent and light with primes mounted on.

Maybe Pentax didn't say that K1 is for weddings (and I think if you ask them they wold say "yes surely you can do everything!")... but it's strange to think that a 2K reflex is not able to cover well fast action photography... today! Even my 6d can do weddings very well...

The point is that I don't want to risk and buy something that makes me losing shots.

David Kinston: In our family there are 3 different recent Nikon cameras, from the D7200 to the D750. Tamron, Sigma and Tokina lenses as well as Nikon. Never any issues.

Plainly CANON is the problem! They like making life difficult for their competitors - and we photographers are the ones suffering.

Lol, my 6D is crying...

Can you mount them on sony a7 series (without stupid adapters)?
No?
Too bad Tamron: too, bad!

In reply to:

Jylppy: If someone remembers I have often posted (and still will) here comments supporting FF DSRL. So with that background I must say that the new Pana GX8 has impressive image quality. Really impressive. The high ISO is a challenge as usual for m43 sensors (GX8 @ ISO 1600 ~ 5D2 @ ISO 800), but still impressive.

But once Panasonic has realized that there is "minimum size" for a serious camera (vs. pocket camera) due to ergonomics, the benefits of m43 system vs. larger sensor Sony system are getting bit marginal, IMO. Yes, I understand how sensor size impacts on lens size, but I also understand that it impacts less on DoF-equivalent lens size. Just see how light-weight Canon 70-200/4L IS is.

Sony FE is still my favorite MILC system (not owning one) in case I choose to get 2nd camera.

Canon FF DSLR user.

Sometimes I still use a 5d mkII for weddings, and it's a crap sensor. Red skin, generally inaccurate colors and so much banding even at 100 iso.

For personal shots I use Panasonic GX1 + 20mm 1.7.
Ok, it's 4/3... but is way more accurate in colors, at high iso got luminance noise and not chroma noise. Got far less banding. To my eyes is a more pleasing sensor than 5d mkII one.

5d mkIII is ok sensor, but mkII is really bad to my eyes, at least nowadays. Once it was revolutionary, but now... please.

Canon 6d is my favourite Canon sensor, however.

In reply to:

ThirstyDursty: no mention of AF performance....which is for me...decidedly lacklustre (at least on an OMD em-10).

Ive found this to especially in low light and backlit situations. If you have moving targets in these situations and this lens can be frustrating by missing focus on otherwise great shots.

Yeah on that camera focusing is pretty bad (my sister got that camera/lens combo so I know)...
Pana 20 focuses far better on an old model like my Panasonic GX1

Good enough, small enough, cheap enough.
As expected.

JhvaElohimMeth: Still waiting for a compact and moderately fast ultrawide fixed lens for 4/3

If I remember is a fisheye, and I don't like fisheye.
But I'm not sure if it's a rectilinear lens or not.
EDIT: it seems to be rectilinear but not compact enough, for my needs...

For me would be ideal a light and compact 9mm 2.8

In reply to:

JhvaElohimMeth: I think that to compete in all aspect with micro 4/3 fuji would need a cheap and portable 56mm f/2...
And maybe a small camera like x-m1 but with a decent electronic viewfinder...

So you can have Fuji quality and a very small set of good quality lenses:
18mm f/2
27mm f/2.8
and the 56mm f/2 (maybe they won't never produce it...).

Now I have GX1 with elec. viewfinder, 20mm 1.7, 45mm 1.8 and sigma 60mm 2.8

I would like to try Fuji quality but I would be obliged to have a bigger body just to have finder, and there's no small fixed focal tele lens for that system...

I'm looking for something as small as gx1 + finder + oly 45mm.
For small lens I intend the Fuji 18mm f/2, 27mm f/2.8...
23mm is too big for me.

Ok X-E2 should be enough cheap and small, but maybe a small eq.85mm tele lens would be nice to have.
There's just the massive and expensive 56mm f/1.2!

In reply to:

Photog74: This reminds me of a story from about 10 years ago when Magnum photographer Alex Majoli would use three Olympus C-5050 compact cameras to document the Iraq war. There have always been, and will likely always be, photographers who use smaller devices instead of the generally bulky SLRs preferred by the majority of their colleagues. This is nothing new, actually.

I have that compact, nice tool...
