On article Head to Head: Adobe Lightroom Classic vs Capture One 21 (423 comments in total)
In reply to:

klimbkat: Interesting topic, but the graphical aspects are unhelpful. You have identically titled pairs of graphs that, presumably, represent Lightroom then C1. Not only can't you tell which is which without looking at the charts, there is no meaningful comparison since the lines to compare - LR vs. C1 - are in different graphs. The charts are fine - loose the confusing graphs and the article will be easier to read.

The primary comparison is LR vs. C1 - the different camera and computer models are primarily just data points - and the graphs don't help that comparison.

When the DA 20-40 Ltd. was released, the Pentaxian consensus was that it had similar characteristics to the 21 and 40 mm pancake Limiteds but included all of the range in between. Landscapes look great with excellent micro-contrast, but the real key is that this is a great walkaround range. Horses for courses.

Michael Piziak: I've reviewed all the images, and I have one major question about the photos, and that is, "who the heck puts a cat on a leash???"

LOL

Can't post any pix here, but a gallery of cat walking shots is now up in the Pentax SLR forum for the curious . . .

We've been walking cats on leashes for 15 years, 4 different kitties over that time. It helps to start young, though our first one was 5 and took to it pretty quickly. I did 4 1/2 miles one day recently (in several sessions) and we regularly walk 2 miles, though some days it's more about sniffing stuff and dawdling. they love to travel. I'll put up a few shots in the Pentax SLR forum though the AF-C test is still a ways out.

Perhaps just "hunt" criminal roos? My two cats are hard pressed to take down big bugs - they just want to play with them. If a roo showed up, they'd probably all just party . . . .

Ha! We have two cats that we walk on leashes, we've previously had two others. Lots of reasons to do it, few not to. They travel with us all over the PNW and love to walk on the beach, through the dunes, on wooded paths, etc. My K3III arrives tomorrow; I'll have to work up a kitty walking-on-a-leash AF-C sequence for the DSLR forum :-)

Fair review, best APS-C stills, much improved video and AF tracking, guess it is finally time to upgrade :-)

Melindra: Nice shots, but they look like every other astro shot.
Perhaps he needs to develop a unique style.

I swiped through the article in 2 minutes and I'm done.

@ Melindra Why keep digging deeper? You said you read the article in two minutes, but whatever that process means to you, it didn't even result in your gleaning the sex of the photographer, something mentioned multiple times in the text you claimed you read. Snarky, uninformed hip shots don't usually start substantive discussion. BTW, you don't have to read anything (dribble or otherwise from people you care about or otherwise), but when you don't and then claim you did, you look kind of silly - see how that works?

2 whole minutes? Apparently don't read for much depth either as you missed the fact that the photographer is a woman . . .

JEROME NOLAS: They don't have $$$ on R&D??? Spending money on silly projects like K 01 and so on...

Uh, you do also realize that the K-01 was released nearly a decade ago. And so on . . . ?

FujifilmXT3: Dont buy a film camera

@FujifilmXT3 Got it - since YOU have "had enough" of film, no one else should bother. Anything else YOU have "had enough" of that no one else should bother doing? This substitute living service you offer is very efficient, perhaps over time YOU can replace everyone else's experiences altogether! :-)

In reply to:

il_alexk: Roughly for times heavier and three times more expensive than optically excellent Samyang AF FE 85mm/1.4. That's even before mentioning the uninspiring Pentax AF.

Exactly why I switched from Pentax a few years ago and never looked back.

@Iil alexk Still on about the K5iis (loved that you picked that planted nit, really too easy :-) )? Not even competent trolling, par for the course (hint: I've never taken a single shot with a K3, not one). Looking forward to the brilliant new 85 and very much doubt I'll miss focus. Everything beyond that is just pointless noise . . .

@il alexk You are not going to like what I say, but years of whining by you don't change the fact that there are still more than enough photographers to support the Pentax niche. Not everyone wants robust, weather-sealed kit with great ergonomics and superb output, but you are more than willing to complain about a 12 year old body (K5iis, really?) to make your inner critic happy. Speaking of liberating, consider liberating yourself from the delusion that Pentax cannot focus with fast glass wide open - that's just silly.

@dpthts "no sense from no angle" pretty well nails it; the double negative means that is makes sense from every angle - AGREED. Perhaps not great for shooting a weaving oncoming bicycle, but since that is typically not how most of us shoot portraits, products, etc., the typical subjects for a portrait lens, I think we will be fine. Since I seriously doubt Pentax was counting on your purchase, no loss.

In reply to:

Jhaakas: Having looked at several new MILC FFs that have recently been announced, somehow I feel my trusty K5II still delivers exceptionally..
This is 7 years old now and I am hoping the new one would be a significant upgrade.. and much lighter and smaller..

The issue isn't battery cost, it's compatibility. My K1 and two K5iis (and many other Pentax bodies) use the same battery and that is really, really handy. If an Li90 battery is enough power or the FF K1, should be fine for the K New.

I love my two K5IIs bodies, but it is time. The size is about right; a little larger would even be OK, but please retain the D-L190 batttery . . . :-)

Dana F: IDK, looks like a nice camera but putting it off is making it look more like Vapor Ware to me :(

Your rule, even if accurate, probably no longer applies in the current upside-down market. There is a sudden and unique 3-6+ month change in ever marketing process, and even very smart marketing people have no idea how things are going to shake out.

Jeff Greenberg: ---
"19% of professional photographers are considering a career change due to C19..."

Should be corrected to specify COMMERCIAL photographers.
Survey questions aimed ONLY at that subgroup.
Many other kinds of pro photographers, you know...

I do photography part time, both shoots and fine art stuff. I've lost a wedding, senior portraits, music promo, a gallery show with a couple of juried pieces I printed and framed (and might not have otherwise), and my gallery is essentially closed. I took the survey and found it appropriate for what I do. I do music part time as well, and that is all cancelled until summer - it's a brave new world for gig workers.

In reply to:

T3: I would love to see a mirrorless K1000. Keep the same slim retro body styling, but make it mirrorless (which will allow it to maintain its slim body). Unfortunately, Fujifilm basically beat them to the punch with their X-T100, which I think has the same look, vibe, and spirit of a K1000. With some slight cosmetic changes (like changing the shape of the viewfinder hump), you could easily make the X-T100 into a digital K1000:

https://rangefinder-cameras.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/pentax-k1000-asahi-body-featured-image.jpg

One would think that Pentax could do this relatively easily, in part to appeal to the mirrorless fans who own some of the 2 million K mount lenses circulating. They could pass on the yellow body though ;-)
