I'm not a Nikon shooter, not a pro, and not in the market for this camera at all. But had to comment to say: brilliant shots. Great advert for the D5. Well done.

Using PS on a waterfall scene? Using ACR to convert the data? What has Pentax done to deserve this? Readers should be encouraged to read the "most popular" tab of these comments to glean some sensible reactions.

Sean65: It's now got to the stage that it is cheaper to buy a new printer than to replace ink cartridges when they run out. Never seen such a rip off market in my life. Ink is more expensive than gold.

Yes, loved your gallery earlier in the year. Lovely shots from a unique lens.

There's a strong cast in that image ... a plaster cast.

I'll get my coat ...

iudex: This is exactly the lens the Pentax 16-85 mm should have been. Almost the same range, but much faster. The price is extremely high, however.

I don't hang around too much in the rain either. Dust is my main concern.

Well I am the other way around. We must shoot at different times and in different environments.

A stop and a bit faster than the Pentax, but not weather sealed. And about $400 more expensive? Hmmmm ...

shutterbobby: Very impressive-good as the bar is raised for APS C cameras
& how about a Pentax K3 review??

The lack of a K-3 review was a running joke here for several months, but DPR did eventually get around to doing it.

Believe me, I've been shooting Pentax most of that 15 years too.
But now, it has moved out of the realm of rumor ...

You obviously have not seen the recent news about the forthcoming Pentax FF camera!

halfwaythere: Ricoh is slowly driving the Pentax brand off a cliff. I think most of the pentaxians are going to miss the Hoya days.

Nah, Hoya were driving that car rather faster ... ;-)

I bought one but my copy was frustratingly soft. Returned.
