  • The 28-105 looks to be the right choice for you - sharp, excellent IQ throughout the range, and it will give you the flexibility to shoot at many focal lengths.  As you shoot with the zoom, over ...
  • Assuming your issue is SDM failure, I don't believe a hack is available to convert the 60-250 to screw drive (but someone please correct me if I am wrong).  SDM repair from Precision or KEH (a ...
  • Replied in Trolls?
    Mike, I hear you.  Unfortunately everyone gets equal bandwidth out here on the wild, wild internet, and that bandwidth includes an awful lot of noise relative to useful fact and fair exchange. ...
  • My understanding is that this baffle has some function related to APS-C and I'm curious to know what the impact is, if any, as it may affect both usage options and resale value. Well, I believe you ...
  • This is where Ricoh/Pentax could/should be doing a lot better.  Presumably someone somewhere actually knows the detail, the fine points of the AF system and can explain how it functions and how ...
  • Ha ha!  Brilliantly detailed explanation and the ability to keep a horse riding past (not toward) at 50 feet in focus - something I was barely able to do with my istDL.  Idle men indeed . . .  I'm ...
  • Do you have any idea whether or to what extent this mod will affect APS-C performance (if at all)?  Seems easy enough to do and appears to bring the lens from 92% FF to about 99.5% . . .
  • I, too, have wondered about the Pentax/Ricoh non-response.  While my impressions are that the AF is not as bad as DPR has portrayed (I've had no K-1 AF issues but I don't shoot bicycles), the ...
  • Interesting.  So the catch-lights in the eyes are similar glass feeders?  Stunning detail, BTW.
  • Yes - you can select this on page 1 of the C Menu section
  • Replied in Dear @Rishi...
    Please don't feel you are speaking for me.  While I was generally impressed by the review, the cyclist "test" is demonstrably flawed and, thus, conclusions that rely on it have potential flaws as ...
  • Have you actually looked at the critique of this "test," specifically that the test point, the rider's head, was essentially not within the focal points for the majority of the shots? While, in ...
  • I think this is the issue - that, combined with the fact that the nominal focus target (the head) was not within the camera's focal points means that once focus was lost it was then reacquired on ...
  • An "argument," basic or otherwise, is necessarily premised on some accurate facts.  You relied on DPR's demonstrably incorrect test to support your argument.  The question of whether or not AF (or ...
  • I don't understand how you have missed the DPR user errors that others have found.  The test was not performed correctly - the head of the bicyclist was not even within the camera's focus points ...
  • Whats the over/under on whether they respond at all?  Honestly, this is a pretty embarrassing fail, perhaps a form of confirmation bias.
  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    For its range, the new 28-105 is both light and high quality with excellent resolution and is also WR. With this lens, my (and your) K-1 hiking/mountaineering/trekking camera is here right now.

  • I second Dale's comment.  Great rendition & micro-contrast in a light, WR package that is superb for walk-around and travel.
  • Can't do this with the K-1, at least not that I've heard.
  • Well, the output is so amazing that I have had real difficulty determining the benefit of PS.  As paraphrase of what they used to say about hair coloring, "only the photographer knows for sure." Pi ...
