Toilet Roll: Pentax ought to just retire and sell any patents to Canon. Nobody in their right mind invests in Pentax exo system

My Pentax cameras are capable of outstanding photos. I guess I am not in my right mind. What do you shoot?

david_sladek: Shame the Pentax D-FA* 50 / 1.4 is not included here. It is one of the best and right on topic.

I have both. There is no comparison.

Johans81: If you are new to photography or invested in Another brand dont buy this camera , if you are already heavily invested in Pentax lenses buy it and you Will have a good camera for years

Actually, he does have a point. The overall message is positive, particularly to those of us who are heavily invested in lenses.

Fotoni: Medium format have strengths like better quality wide apertures (larger projection area), high ISO performance, dynamic range and resolution. Although I don't know about GFX 100 lenses, if they have any really wide aperture options and what is their quality.

So GFX100 galleries should have mostly widest apertures, low light high ISO, extreme contrast, fine detailed subjects. Also there should be action in most shots so that tripod long exposures are not possible. Quite pointless to shoot near static subjects with IBIS when tripod can do a better job and also makes pixel shift possible.

Pentax has pixel shift in their full frame cameras.

I'm sure that it is quite fine but I am very happy with my q2 for less money.

ncsakany: Reminds me very much of the output of my old RX1R.

I would put my rx1rii up against this. What makes this Zeiss lens better than that Zeiss lens?

The FT2 was my first slr back in the mid 70s. I loved that camera.

DeathArrow: As a 300mm f/3 equivalent, being more expensive than Nikon 300mm f/2.8 and lacking a body such as D5, I see a limited market for that.

Mommy, I'm bored

Good job Sony and good for us. I have never known Sony to ever do a firmware update on a cyber-shot camera.

In reply to:

mepaca: The comparison chart says that the original Q does not have image stabilization. It indeed does. I have had a Q2 on preorder since March 12 so hopefully I will get it before the end of the year.

I agree with you Carey. If one can't take a really good picture with this camera then they have no business owning one.

I own this lens. I think the review is balanced and the score is fair. The bottom line is if you can't take a good picture with this lens then you can't take a good picture at all.

David610: Both Pentax users will love this lens?

It is also sold as the Tokina Opera with Canon and Nikon mounts albeit with probably different coatings.

Protogonus1: Do we need to know this? How many times will this happen in the history of the world, or even the history of flash-drive technology? Answer: A vanishingly small number, likely once! What this post shows is that DPR, which was once a great site for PHOTOGRAPHY and CAMERAS, has been reduced to the level of trivia when it doesn't fall of the log of video hype and accessories worship.

I liked the blurb. Why are you so bitter?
