digiart: I don't think anyone expected "Dynamic" pixel shift to be better than "Standard" pixel shift. You still get better resolution than no pixel shift and that's good and expected. Shame about the 30s needed to take the shot(s) process and write to card.

Agree with your first sentence. But for your second sentence, it seems like a wash in the cityscape, and maybe in the studio scene I even prefer no PS to handheld PS (although, again, they're very close).

Disappointing.

tedolf: Does this K1 have replaceable focusing screens?

tEdolph

Your second paragraph is correct. All Pentax DSLRs are the same. I've had split screens in K10D, K20D (from KatzEye, until they went bust) and now K-1 (from the link above). For the K-1, I didn't enjoy what it seemed to do to the metering - so I have put the original screen back.

There are focus screens for K-1:

There is also focus-peaking in live view when old K lenses are used.

On article Why brand market share shouldn't matter to you (552 comments in total)

"There are only three big brands in the sector." Pentax were presumably overlooked on a market share basis, then. Ah well, doesn't matter ...

Kharan: Could you also test the new 11-18mm f/2.8 lens? That one looks great.

It's not released yet. "2018 Summer" according to the lens roadmap.

No K-mount yet again! But, no doubt, some wag will suggest that Pentax don't have enough lenses to fill the holder anyway ... :-)

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.

On article Waterfails: We test Pentax K-1's Pixel Shift (225 comments in total)

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.

In reply to:

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 ...

& 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.
