Daft Punk: I am suspicious of the type of people who would do this.

Most people would simply get another camera.

I'm suspicios of someone who would use wifi on their camera :))

Weird atmosphere here, Dpreview comment sections used to be full of photography enthusiasts that new what you can do with a lens and camera.

Now we have smartphone users saying that they have this kind of lens be default in their latest gadget, and people that compare budget 2.8 primes to 1.4 premiums.

I think this lens is fantastic and I shoot an FF Nikon !

Halina123: A 24mm prime lens!
I wonder how many will actually by it.
A top of the range smartphone comes with a wide angle fast prime lens for free.

So what is the point of producing this lens in 2016.

Your ignorance baffles me !

FantasticMrFox: Seems like Pentax K is garnering third party support again. First Irix, now this - the sun is shining in Pentax land. And with the success of the K-1 and the new electronic aperture mechanism, it seems like it's only a matter of time until at least Sigma returns.

I've always used stock screens because I mostly use AF, I only MF when shooting macro or shooting video.

I have seen the reviews from the main youtube reviewers and there was no rave, only positive. TCS found the AF to be modest in continuous and the ergonomics quirky and DRev found the video to be modest as well as the ergonomics.

Also, there seems to be a production shortage, in my country at least, one person that I know that ordered one, did not get it. And he's the only one I know that's getting one so it might sell like hotcakes somewhere else, who knows. I checked the Amazon top sale DSLR's and I think it was in 80'th place or something, or 90'th.

Succes as in it exists ? And why would you buy a chinese 35 1.2 with manual focus anyway ?

I tried the Samyang 24 1.4 and 85 1.4 and I could barely get perfect focus, on a full frame viewfinder. To me, these things are for mirorless cameras, where you can focus peak and take your time.

iudex: Great camera and a slap in Canon and Nikon´s face: who else produses such fully packed entry-level model? Just Pentax does. Bravo Pentax!

They always produced great bang for buck products, that was supposed to be a slap in the face of Canon and Nikon, ever since the K10D, K200D. I actually reccomended a K200D to a friend. However, after you buy it you realise why they cost so little and seem to offer so much.

He gladly got rid of it some time later and was very happy with his new Nikon D90 that got him good consistent AF, consistent WB, good range of lenses.

On article Setting new standards: Nikon D5 Review (505 comments in total)

If you think DR for this camera is bad, you should remember that Canon users always had this much DR or lower on their cameras and they do just fine.

This is low DR at low ISO for Nikon shooters, spoiled with 14-15 stops of dynamic range.

The much-praised D3s had a little less DR than the D5...

Tobamory: Wow i never knew the Battery was that big 3700 snaps wowser, makes the canon look like Mirrorless...

That's nothing new, nor impressive. That's the usual big-battery-pro-camera mileage. The D3/s had similar figures as far as I know.

I shot my last wedding on a D750 and I got around 1600-1800 on a battery, and they have much smaller batteries, that's why I say it's not impressive.

In reply to:

joe6pack: I wonder if the LED stick can do more than just even light. Can the individual LEDs be programmed to do light painting?

That's asking too much from a 100$ stick that doesn't even come with battery.

Edymagno: Very sad news

Again, you are not right. You claim that WD owns Seagate, yet the first result to the search phrase you suggested yields the exact opposite, an article stating that Seagate will in fact buy WD

http://www.storagenewsletter.com/rubriques/mas/seagate-acquires-wd-for-16-billion-new-company-named-seawest/

And I'm sure it's not true. Wikipedia does not mention any ownership of one versus the other, and treats them like competition.

Please provide a trustworthy source of your claim.

As far as I know, Seagate, Toshiba and Western Digital are rivals. Western Digital owns Hitachi/HGST, Seagate owns Samsung harddisks.

Because the big wigs at WD will now start to decide for Sandisk. And some of these decisions might run Sandisk into the ground.

I currently own 9 Sandisk cards, 4 SD and 5 CF, and they have been working perfectly for the last 5 years. In my history of card usage, I have had only one Sandisk fail, and that was because it was a 8Gb used in a D70, known for breaking 8Gb cards.

I have only had one WD hard drive and it failed on me. I now have multiple Seagate drives, 2x2TB, one Samsung/Seagate 1 Tb and one external Verbatim which has a Samsung in it, and all are working (I must be very lucky at that). I fear Western Digital ..

In reply to:

tinternaut: You can still paint me stunned that Samsung pulled out of the photography market at s time when they had the best APS-C body bar none (and a growing system of decent glass)...

Please check the camerastoretv review, the NX1 has trouble locking focus on a static subject in daylight, in a shaded area. Nevermind tracking.

Profit rules the game. Bar none ASPC ? It couldn't focus properly in low light even on static subjects, as reviews showed.

Guys, I looked up an M65 online since so many of you say that it is a replacement for this and the Alpha industries one looks horrible, though some other derived versions do look good, whereas this is a (overpriced) but quite stylish jacket.

Fashionable men would know how hard it is to find a fashionable jacket and how much they cost. That being said, for use in the winter, I would definitely look for an alternative.

Since jacket pockets gather up dust and flakes at the bottom, that is the last place I would put a lens or a camera.
