  • Thank you guys for responding. For repeatedly pointing out that the review created that specific impression regarding AF-S, I got a three day ban. Let's see if there are other readers that can ...
  • Created question thread Was I delusional?
    Regarding the recent K1 review by DPR: I was firmly under the impression that the AF-review section / conclusion in its initial text version suggested that AF-S failed in about half instances. Did ...
  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Rishi: I reread the AF references in the review just now. There are text changes in AF and conclusion sections, formulations that lead everybody to understand "AF-S fails half the time"...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    There is not only the undifferenciated conclusions for AF. Also regarding pixel shift: why does DPR only test the limits of the system, going with its photographed subject almost beyond its stated...

    Carey: we are fighting about nuances in writing that can make worlds of difference in meaning. If the article had said "There can be no doubt that the K-1 AF is capable of excellent photographs of...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Carey: that is exactly the issue with the article. It does not say that "there can be no doubt that the K-1 AF is capable of excellent photographs of a wide variety of subjects, and at a very high...

    This is a collection of posts that date back to what was posted in the first impressions Review.

    Nice try. The Pentax forum is filled with plenty of that kind of posts and samples.

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Rishi: first let me express my appreciation that you guys put up with us :-)
    To my point: could it be there is no progress in that discussion between DPR and many of us because we have different...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Barney: the review in essence suggests that the K1 AF does not work - while all K1 users are happy with it (within its limits), and having first hand experience with it are baffled by your...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Craig, the negative comments come from users that actually own a K1 or other recent Pentax DSLR system and have no problem with their AF.

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    I do not know if someone else already summed up to what the AF / AF-S discussion boils down - so here is my take: It is irritating that DPRs test procedures makes them dismiss the K1 AF in their...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    "The autofocus tends to hesitate, even in AF-S mode with the center point - it’s nowhere near as fast as most Canon and Nikon DSLRs."

    What is not to understand about this statement? It is very...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    That type of people exist, if you like it or not. When I look at your gear list, I do not know why you feel addressed by my comment anyway, you shouldn't. No need for you to become offensive.

    What...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Some people really got nervous the K1 could get a full DPR endorsement and now are happy to see the bad marks for the K1's AF. They are expressing their relief with Pentax-bashing in this comments...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    You want to know how this camera performs? Then go to the Pentax DSLR forum here and see how capable photographers apply the K1 AF to challanging action subjects and its pixel shift to appropriate...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Why would I be interested in users of other brands to "convert" to Pentax? Would it help me make better pictures with my Pentax camera? Obviously no. Would it make me feel better about myself?...

  • Commented on article Pentax K-5 II and K-5 II S

    I love my K5ii :-)

  • Your landscape shots turned out very beautyful, and the dunes shot in mono is just phantastic.
  • I guess some of us Pentaxians seeing everything coming from the K1 through pink glasses 😊
    But I may be wrong with my assessment. Anyone here who can enlighten us?
