  • Replied in FF is FF
    Perhaps I'm misunderstanding basis for the notion that FF is inherently less stable than APS-C, but the pixel pitch of the K1 is essentially the same as the K20, K7, and K5 series (crop mode on ...
  • I've no doubt that's true, though to date, it hasn't been an issue for me.  Bottom line, though, any 70-200 f/4 had better be really impressive to best what I've already got. DA* 60-250 on K1, ...
  • I've been very happy with my unmodified 60-250 on the K1 for portraits and shooting live music. Yes, the extreme corners are soft and there is vignetting, but if I shoot just a little wide I can ...
  • I'm curious as to why you've not included or apparently considered either UW or tele for a travel kit - I find both ends of the range very useful, particularly UW. Consider Sigma 8-16 or 10-20 ...
  • I have both, the original Bigma 50-500 and the DFA 150-500.  As others have noted, the lower-cost Sigma is a 10x zoom design which necessarily introduces IQ compromises to accomodate the range.  ...
  • Your experience mirrors mine - I find no point in trying to use the 10-20 FF. Nice waterfall!
  • Created discussion thread Holiday Wreaths
    Happy Holidays to all! Here's a couple shots of our decorations, a wreath from local greens and the lit stand-alone door that welcomes the world to peace. Please share shots of your festive ...
  • Nice shots - welcome to the club :-)
  • I guess you CAN have it both ways :-)  Seriously, the field curvature issue has never been a problem for me as I shoot that kind of edge-to-edge landscape at f8-f11 which eliminates the issue.  ...
  • Dan, I' was an early adopter and fan of this lens, and have shot numerous gallery landscapes with it.  I am well aware that it has field curvature on the wide end at large apertures (you did read ...
  • ???? Field curvature cannot be avoided by changing focal points. Even with the most accurate focus, when the DOF is thin, the lens will appear to "fail" brick wall tests. Check for accurate AF, of ...
  • You're no fun at all dashing someone's "Pentax is doomed"  Grinch tale.  :-) My first shot in PPG from about 10 years ago As you were . . .
  • It's Tuesday the 18th and the site still functions.  Assume I'm from a a non-technical world where the term "certificate" is not used: what do you believe this means (beyond the cryptic "read and ...
  • What does it mean that the certificate "died"? The site is up, the individual galleries are available for viewing (my 10-year reverse chronology was fun), though its been the case for nearly a year ...
  • Many nice shots, particularly the portraits - looks like your copy is solid (as is mine). No real tips, great lens, works just as it should.
  • 15, 20-40, 70 is the new limited 3 Amigos - great compact kit.  Enjoy!
  • Replied in Pentax 15-30
    I have it, like it, but only use it on the K-1. It is big, heavy, and will not accept screw-on filters. I'd be surprised if the 16-30 range of the lighter and less expensive DA* 16-50 wasn't as ...
  • Nice assortment of shots, delightful people - makes me want to get back there . . .
  • Great shot(s), really captures the immense, barren nature of the region.  Out of curiosity, why did you choose to explore the Dolpo Region?  Have you been to Nepal previously?
  • Don't get me wrong, I really like the 16-50 (SDM issues and all), but it is much larger and literally twice as heavy as the 20-40.  I did a comparison with the two lenses on a multi-level ...
