  • No doubt great value and easily some of the first lenses I recommend to someone new to Pentax who's on a budget.  But I think the OP has a main rig already and is just looking for something to ...
  • If I were looking for something to shoot events in the rain, I'd be looking for a single lens that covered a range since changing lenses with a wet camera and lens is always a bit of a risk. Since ...
  • Thanks much Adam007!  Yeah, I'm a bit of a Gear-holic, but I just love trying to optimize what I have to where I go and what I think I might see/photograph.  And of course experimenting with new ...
  • I think it depends on what you need the lens to do.  For low light work, like social gatherings, I'd take the Sigma.  I've had no issues with focusing on mine and I use it quite often.  But if ...
  • I have the GRii and I shoot Pentax dslrs.  I find high iso (3200 and up) look a lot like the k5ii series of cams, which is to say picture quality is great and the noise is fine grained and not ...
  • Sigma has some "legacy" autofocus lenses that are FF: 17-35 f2.8-f4 and 12-24. I believe Tamron also made a 17-35. Pentax Forums has a lens guide that can help you find some other options. I've ...
  • I have both and there's some unique positives to both.  The fully articulating screen on the k70 can be really handy though it can take a bit more time to deploy.  The grip on the k70 is also a ...
  • It does seem like a very compact combination with the limiteds.  Never got a chance to hold one though so I can't speak to other traits like ergo, handling, and sound.
  • Always remember to look up!  Editing gives this a Marvel Comic feel to me.  Nice shot
  • some nice shots.  i just picked up this cam for everyday carry - surprised at the size.  If I can have the camera on me for situations like what you captured, I'll be very happy.  Dust bunnies... ...
  • Very beautiful, nicely done!
  • Very interesting!  If they want to focus on social media, they are going to need help from content providers (photographers) and work on building the brand through the strength of their images.  ...
  • Wide open, almost has a FF look to it.  Thanks for sharing!
  • Replied in C&C Dog Snaps!
    Another way to get color in their eyes is to place yourself between the window and the animal on an overcast day or if the sun is on the other side of the house (their cooperation is required of ...
  • Wow, that's $570.49 US!!  I would buy one for 599 as a second body to replace the K3 if it were offered to us.  Wish I could buy from there :(
  • To get two card slots and the same amount of photos per battery, you'd have to get 2 of the z6's.  Of course if you want the same amount of focus points, how many k1's is that :) I still feel that ...
  • Looks to be a great combination.  Seems to be quite sharp with good bokeh.
  • I think the first response would be pleasant surprise followed by concerns that another mount to make lenses for would create a slowdown in developing non mirrorless lenses.
  • Great photos!  The 77 probably took me the longest to get used to - for half a year, I just couldn't click with it.  Now, it's probably the lens I take with me the most.  I love the image quality ...
  • I've had fully articulating screens before and they are very nice but they take longer to use than the K1. On a fully articulating screen, you have to pull the screen out and then rotate it where ...
