  • 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 ...
  • For sure all the Asahi lenses will work with an adapter (m42 to K-mount) on the K-3ii.   Cool thing is, it's very easy to get the camera to meter based on the aperture setting you have on the ...
  • Pentax hasn't come out with a new body or new lenses in at least a couple years.  The last version of the Q, the QS1, didn't sell all that well, so I'd imagine it could be picked up as new old ...
  • The features that have kept me with Pentax are rugged and affordable weather sealing, native support of very good and pretty inexpensive legacy glass, a moving sensor that Pentax kept using for ...
  • Lol, exactly what I was saying <and doing :)>
  • I should make it there more often - being from Portland, my drive there is quite a bit shorter than yours.  I really have no excuse, just need to plan better. Awesome shot, thanks for sharing!
  • It's a good little lens imo.  Takes pretty much everything  you can throw at it and it comes up solid.  Wish it were an f2 but then it'd be Much bigger.
  • Sorry all, price is back up to 870 :(  Hope some of you got in on it...
  • https://amazon.com/Pentax-KP-Ultra-Compact-Weatherproof-Black/dp/B01N5RH90B/?tag=pentaxforums-20& black color only.  thinking of a second KP body....
  • Well you can still get the FA50 f1.4 for super cheap pricing now and it still has good-ish dreamy rendering (if you can deal w/ the fringing) on the K-1. Nice to have options!

  • So if the one of the main reasons is the level of zoom but you are currently happy with the resolution of the k-01, if were to get a KP and crop down to the k-01 resolution, that would essentially ...
  • I have the KP and k3 and I always take the KP when I'm going somewhere.  The third wheel is great for bracketing or iso control.  High ISO pics are quite a bit cleaner and the tilting screen is ...
  • Replied in Waterfalls
    There are times when I really miss the k10d - it had a look and punch to colors that I think is of a slightly different flavor compared to the cmos sensors of today. Nice shot!
  • Wow, looks like an amazing experience to be in those vintage planes. I bet there were less smudges on those windows than on a commercial airline!  All in all, the pics look great considering... Tha ...
