  • I could not agree more!  Well said. A Leitaxed Zeiss ZF lens has IQ that beats any of these third party lenses.
  • I just love how you can take something really simple and make it complex.  ;-) Anyway, these 3 Fuji ISO image variants make terrific HDR photos in Photomatix Pro.  So, I disagree with your ...
  • . . Not at all the same thing at all! With my Fuji in ISO bracketing mode the shutter actuates once and three images are recorded. With my K1 in TAv mode and bracketing actuated, my K1's shutter ...
  • You sound like a person with limited (or no experience) with Zeiss lenses on a Pentax K1 . Care to share some photos and tell us more about your Zeiss lens experience? Zeiss ZK lenses beat anything ...
  • My Fuji X cameras have "ISO Bracketing". It's the perfect way to take a bracketed series of photos for HDR processing with a single shutter click. I'd love to be able to do this via a firmware ...

    Nice! Happy that you didn't fall over that 1000 foot ledge!
  • I have a K1 and would not think of ever putting anything over my screen. I always focus in the Live View mode and putting anything onto the screen would impair my ability to find "critical focus". ...
  • That explains why their choices for cameras and lenses of the year were very similar to what the "Angry Photographer" posted to YouTube a couple of weeks ago!!
  • It's a tempest in a teapot.   No big deal. My Sigma lens put a little scratch on my K1, it's such a minor issue that it's not even worth talking about.
  • K1, camera of the year!  I totally agree. It caused me to sell my Fuji X and Nikon systems...
  • I have the Pentax FA20/2.8. Nice lens. I also have a Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon. It comes in the ZK version (Pentax mount) and the ZF version (Nikon mount). The ZF version is much less expensive and ...

    Ever hear of micro-contrast?

    Samyang and Rokinon are the cheapest made lenses out there.   I've taken a few apart and their design is pathetic.   Sure they are sharp, but there's so much more to a lens then that.

    GARY, of course I knew that!! I just happen to prefer the rendering of Zeiss and Voigtlander lenses better than Pentax's typical rendering. I only hope that they come up with more primes per their ...
  • Right on Lothman! I certainly don't understand folks complaining about not having enough super-premium lenses, and demanding lenses that cost over $4,000 when they themselves don't even own a K1 ...

    Matt, what a great idea!!!
  • Replied in Ziess Lens's
    Here's an easy/quick path for Pentax to release a line of "Zeiss Killer" lenses. Just re-badge and re-issue the Voigtllander (Cosina) manual focus line of lenses (58mm, 90mm, 125mm, and 180mm). ...

    You're right, it's not going to happen. Pentax sales are far too low, and most Pentax lens buyers are far to "frugal" to spend serious money (most new Zeiss lens are $1,700 to $2,200 USD these ...
  • Very beautiful images.  I just love the soft out-of-focus highlights.   What lens did you use?   Was it wide open?
  • I shoot Sony, Nikon, Fuji X, and Pentax. Pentax should improve their jpg's on low cost, consumer, crop frame cameras. I own the Pentax K1.  Personally, I don't see a big need for Pentax to upgrade ...
