Pat Cullinan Jr: Would anyone care to address the question, Is it worth its price?

Which Pentax? QS1, or the DSLRs?

Not too expensive, either

In reply to:

racin06: I would prefer the Fuji X-T2 or XPro-2 paired with Fuji 35mm f/1.4.

My choice, Pentax K-1 plus FA 31/1.8 Limited - with $200 left, still 😁

The Davinator: Hmmm...for that price, I'd take the Fuji X-Pro2 and 18-55 and see little size difference...and a big image quality difference.

For just IQ increase, X-A3 or X-T20 plus 35/2 should be enough with plenty of $$$ to spend on the trip ;)

For $3,200 I'm sure there are better choices - ultimate or not.

In reply to:

kewlguy: X-T20 makes more sense. Same IQ, half the price. The differences are just gimmicks.

Trolling LOL. I'm just being reasonable. Those gimmicks you mentioned are not worth *$800* alone. But I understand you are a fanboy...

Richard Murdey: I just realized: no top LCD.

I don't care what the price is or the features are. No top LCD, you sit at the kid's table. Your credentials as a top tier enthusiast dSLR are revoked.

they bother enough to make 3 grip sizes and massive VF hump - but omit the top LCD. that 1/6000s is a joke, too.

Pentax should really make more lenses for K-1...

In reply to:

Jan Jespersen Photography: Nice to see some real images from the M10. As other say, it's hard to see any difference from a Canon, Nikon etc.
Another thing. A lot of the images looks out of focus. But maybe the photographer only has used autofocus previously?

That's intentional, it's called Leica photography.

In reply to:

kewlguy: A perfect travel camera with 18-55 and an extra battery.

CJ Chen, the 18-55 can be limiting but it can be plenty as well. I have a good sample of this lens as a kit of the X-E1 I bought back in 2013 and I have made large prints out of it. That said, it really depends on what you shoot and how you travel. If I'm to add a lens, the 14/2.8 fits the bill for me. Super sharp, zero distortion, and compact, too.

In reply to:

jyw5: This isnt really medium format...just larger than FF. The price is good...but then you have to buy more glass.

Why can't people just accept the fact that larger-than-FF falls into medium format category?

In reply to:

EOS Paul: What an ugly device. If that was used during WWII then fine, but it looks very much out of place today.

$6000+ for something that has half the bits missing.

Would it take a better photo than my X-T2?

takes better homeless people photos for sure 😁

On article Got focal range? Canon 24-105mm F4L II sample gallery (101 comments in total)
In reply to:

D200_4me: It could use an extra 15mm (like Nikon's version). I pretty much use the 24-120 f/4 all the time. It's a very useful range. Not sure why Canon can't get an extra 15mm in there....or better yet, the ultimate zoom lens that would be just about the only lens I'd ever need would be a 24-200 f/4. Wish they made one (for FF).

are you kidding? Canon can't even make it better than the old version let alone adding 15mm more
