  • It's a hard choice as each kit has it's advantages and drawbacks. As I said I would be more inclined towards the K20D kit as the included glass is excellent, the K20D has 8800 clicks, the Tammy ...

    Hello everybody, here I am at it again. I need to buy gear, I went down Fuji lane, love the IQ but I don't like the rest. Mirrorless is just not ready for me yet and I am going back for a DSLR. Hav ...
  • In the 1980's people would laugh at you if you brought any type of product which was "Made in Japan" .... it was associated with bad quality, poor manufacturing, ... well, all that is associated...

  • @ klimbkat: Indeed, I meant announced. But still it means that Pentax is actively working on lens development and that is reassuring.
