odd that you haven't tested it against a grid fence and bright sun behind

"Just like the Nikon Z series, the EOS R makes a lot of effort to accommodate existing DSLR shooters, with a dial layout and menu system that will be immediately familiar"
What a praise! They are just keeping a similar button layout...

why wouldn't take advantage of the ibis and go for 1/2 speed or even less and lower iso? it would have demonstrated the performance of the ibis... :S

some of them seems to show some amount of vignetting, nothing to get crazy and maybe i'm wrong but wasn't that some of the things to be avoided with the new mount and lenses? Or maybe is just the scene lights...

daowei: The D850 is a tough camera for sure, but how does it stack up against a Pentax K1?

"that pentax marketing of a steel chassis gives the pentax camera a all steel subframe camera. nothing more" no, i never thought the camera had an all metal steel subframe that included the mirror box. I just thought that the mount was attached to the steel frame, which you demonstrated is not.
The purpose of the article was only due to it showed to me that there are other things in play like accurate mount - mirror box alignment and that might influenced in the decision to attach the mount to the mirror box instead of the metal sub frame. In the end, i really don't care much as long as it works and if nikon, pentax, canon performs that kind of construction must be for a reason.

it seems to me the mounting ring is attached to the camera body, so any impact or weight shall not be propagated to the internal plastic mirrorbox. I remember someone posting a thread at pentaxforums falling over his k1 with a telephoto lens on it and the mount was ripped of the body, however the rest of the camera and internals were fine he just needed to fix/screw the mount again... why would you ever want the lens load, or impacts we propagated to the mirror box by physically linking them?

plastic chassis?

Anyway is not just the camera but lens also have to be wr. And under the direct midday summer sun exposure during a long time camera and lens could reach very high temps, i would try to avoid such conditions if possible.

It is a prime, how is it possible that they cannot make it smaller??

@david_sladek forget about it, he will always have an answer. I think is that kind of people that talks about everything but no one has ever seen him doing something...

In reply to:

left eye: I would buy the K-1II if the 50mm was a f2.8 (smaller, lighter, I don't need big balls in the background). Actually I've been asking for a modern 28mm f2.8 Pentax made.

Market forces, review forces, inferred forces want f1.4??? ...I don't, I want sharp and compact primes, even f3.5 is fine for me, shock horror f3.5!!

You have already several compact and sharp pentax lenses around for that aperture. Go for it

(unknown member): Another Pentax review, another crapstorm in the comments.
- Pentax is a dead system: check
- This is rebadged Tokina/Tamron/Meyer Optik Gorlitz: check
- DPReview are evil manipulators that made this lens look bad: check

The only thing missing is @dpsomething guy using longitudinal CA examples as 'proof' that Pentax cannot make a good lens. Plus his usual rants about old SDM failures and denoising cheats.

Please, give @dpsomething guy some time, he has a life too you know? Is not just trolling around...
Regarding the lens, looks fantastic to me and the gallery is nice too.
