  • I use both mirrorless and DSLR. FF Mirrorless as secondary system, mostly for vintage lenses. APS-C DSLR as main system.
  • Optical stabilization can compensate for X and Y motion too, but as it is only something that you get a benefit for on high magnification shots, X and Y compensation is usually only implemented on ...
  • But it have already been more than 4 years since K3 was released, so they need much more advancement for the new upcoming camera than those past cameras. It was 7 years between K10D and K3,. It ...
  • Nice review on K1, but why on earth did Pentax send him a Sigma APS-C lens with it?
  • Replied in A simple k1 FF
    This is exactly how adapted K-mount lenses work on any mirrorless camera. The brightness on the EVF is usually designed to either show an preview of the exposure (so it get darker if exposure set ...
  • VR google's might become the next "hottest thing" for cameras. ;)
  • Nowadays it's mostly enthusiasts tand pros that buy standalones cameras. So a super basic camera will probably not sell that well. But Ricoh could maybe manufactured a very cheap K-mount camera by ...
  • This is only in Japan which is Pentax strongest market. The drop in numbers of sold units can be much more, as overall sales on DSLR has has dropped quite a bit the last couple of years. Even ...
  • It seems like you have forgotten Sony A-mount cameras. Which just show how successful "DSLR with EVF" are. Sony have manufactured cameras like you suggest for 7-8 years, which basically have made ...
  • I doubt Ricoh has capacity of releasing a "proper" mirrorless system right now. They already struggle with releasing FF lenses for K-mount fast enough. The only type of mirrorless FF camera I can ...
  • Distagon 21 was also made in K-mount, but may be hard to find a Zeiss stopped manufacturing K-mount lenses. Distagon 21 is a fine lens, but not in the same league as Loxia and Milvus. The distagon ...
  • That is one of the most severe gap in Pentax FF lineup right now. To find a lens in Zeiss Loxia 21 mm performance will be difficult as it's one of the best UWA primes on the market. You are not ...
  • As Sigma reverse engineer their lenses they probably do not have full specification on this. Then they can only rely on already existing Pentax equipment. And as Sigma put priority on lens design ...
  • It is a nice and really useful feature. although not a very new one. I believe Pentax introduced this for WB adjustments on K10D in 2006. At least it was the first camera I saw it on. Pentax is ...
  • There is also risk for other costs. Aftermarket cost when something unexpected happen, like when Sigma lenses had to be modified when they scratched the housing on K1 or when firmware in Sigma ...
  • This and many other tests has shown that the main problem with Pentax AF performance is not the AF-system itself, but that many lenses are not designed to fully utilize the AF performance that the ...
  • What kind of lenses are you interested in? The easiest lenses to adapt to a Pentax K-nount is m42 lenses as K-mount was designed for easy adaptation of m42 lenses, which Pentax previosly used. If ...
  • In sense smartphones has already replaced medium format. Up until WW2 medium formats was the most wide spead format used, but today that is captured by smartphones. I also believe there are much ...
  • There have been a couple of tries in designing multiple lens cameras. But is was on small sensor P&S cameras. But the most cost effective on these cameras where the use sepsrate camera units in the ...
  • Had i worked on R&D in a sensor fab it might not have been difficukt to put a  formula that coud been applied to equivalence on it. The simlified equuivalence is no paricular complex. It only ...
