  • Personally, I would probably buy a true k-1 successor rather than a dedicated apsc for a second Pentax body.  So, it all depends on what the camera roadmap looks like when the next Apsc abide ...
  • I want better AF than my K-1, in part because I would use another body for more-demanding AF situations (birds, sports, etc.).  Also, I would like that nifty focusing screen Pentax has supposedly ...
  • Armandino, I don't follow your logic. Miniaturization is not an end unto itself. Sure, for an x100f-type camera, mirrorless makes the whole thing nearly-pocketable. But the XT-2 I rented is...

  • Alex, I appreciate your technical insights, which help me understand why Pentax would move to something like this, if not this exact design. I think my contact was defective, because nothing ...
  • I knew that Sigma wasn't bringing anything new out for Pentax, but I thought there were still a couple things available. This lens is on BH Photo, and I think it's the one you're describing: https: ...
  • Dericali, Let's say you were at a photography event with 100 other photographers.  Inexplicably, they are all using prime lenses, and the conditions require people to switch lenses frequently. ...
  • The retailer, Adorama, accepted my return, and while some of the correspondence is a bit ambiguous, I believe they simply replaced the lens with a new one.  Out of the box, it seems to work great. ...
  • What you're describing has its place, but is not PS, which moves the sensor to capture full-image info at each pixel, thus eliminating the need for de-mosaicing.  Now, if your scene permits you to ...
  • Just to clarify, the K-1 PS files (RAW) are already about 144 M B. While 8 is more than 4, Pentax would be better off improving the motion correction function, or maybe the lossy in-camera ...
  • For sure, Mike!
  • Miles, I have the DFA* 50mm.  It's awesome, and the 43 is quirky enough that I can sorta justify it.  But, whenever I pull out the 77 Limited, which I know you have, I just can't believe the 85 1.4 ...
  • Created discussion thread Can Pentax PS learn new tricks?
    One small item caught my eye while reading the review-in-progress of the new Lumix S1R (with looks pretty good).  In its own PS mode, there is an option to average the exposures, thus creating a ...
  • Hi, I don't know the answer to your question, but I know that this exact question has been discussed here.  Try some archive searches, or the K-1 Facebook group.  Good luck!
  • Replied in Which two?
    I don't have any of those lenses, but I'd say the second two.  Why limit yourself when you see some interesting wildlife?
  • Gus, You should think about this criticism a bit more.  Had he opened his aperture to something truly subject-isolating, and assuming he has the steady hands to pull that off, this would've ...
  • Replied in Jaqueline
    At first I agreed with the constructive criticisms here, but now I'm not so sure. Her head and face are acceptably sharp, and the implied motion of her arms and legs certainly works for the image. ...
  • Replied in Noise
    Your exposure settings are a recipe for noise enhancement. It looks like a fairly bright day.  But your tiny aperture and 1/2000 shutter speed mean you are exposing the sensor to very little light. ...
  • "The worst marketing effort of any camera released in the last 15 years."

    You plainly have never heard of Pentax. Which says it all, really.

  • Jonny,  did we meet in Hawaii?  You and some friends were surfing?  if so, I still owe you those pictures! Given the high optical quality of the 28-105, I don't think it's fair to say there is no ...
  • Thanks, All.  It goes back at the end of the trip, under the retailer’s warranty.  Contact broke off completely. i can’t say there was anything unusual in my handling  of this lens - except that I ...
