  • Replied in Quollor R'iti
    The snow line in this part of the Andes, only about 10 degrees S, is quite high.  I was in this same general area last year and spent a week trekking between 16,000 and 17,000' without needing to ...
  • Created discussion thread Quollor R'iti
    In 2009 I was fortunate to attend the 3-day Quollor R'iti festival high in the Peruvian Andes. Quechua people come from all over South America to gather in a valley at 15,000' where they make ...
  • Glommits, fingerless gloves with a mitten that flips over the fingers, are pretty nice for cold weather work.  They come in wool, fleece, or fully waterproof like these: http://www.cabelas.com/prod ...
  • Excellent shots of a starkly beautiful place.  Wide open spaces and the alpine environment above tree-line, my favorite subject matter - thanks!
  • I've had this lens since its release, use it a lot, and have never had any issues with flare.  Perhaps the hood is sufficiently large that, in combination with the HD coatings, no more is ...
  • Congratulations on your acquisition and pleased to hear that it is not too much weight for your hikes.  Having owned the K-1 with the DFA 28-105 for a year and a half, I am genuinely surprised to ...
  • A great lens at a very good price.  The 20-40 is very light and is like having the 21 ltd. and the 40 ltd. mounted at the same time along with everything in between.  It is my solo APS-C first ...
  • Well, this is true of virtually every brand yet it seems nearly all of the big players have multiple deals, packages, etc. while Pentax has essentially nothing.  While I'm reading "doom and gloom" ...
  • Another vote for the K5IIs, it really hits the sweet spot.  Try to fit at least one prime into your budget so you can taste the full potential of the body.  The * zooms and the 20-40 ltd. are ...
  • If you consider yourself an artist, and you believe your work is art, then it is art. As to whether it is "good" art, or commercially viable/valuable is for others to decide. Eye of the beholder ...
  • Nice shot Mike, especially under the circumstances, of perhaps the most photographed tree in Portland.  I'm told the trick is to have a photographer's membership to the garden which allows you to ...
  • I owned the lens for 6 years before an SDM failure last year (possibly due to lack of use).  It is of such good quality that I converted it to screwdrive which, arguably, improves its ...
  • i agree with this.  Typically, UW lenses have really substantial DOF.  While my Rokinon 14 does not have a DOF scale, I find that it is pretty easy to get everything from 2 feet to infinity in ...
  • I've never heard this before and, with my limited knowledge of mechanical systems, don't really understand how or why a screw-driven system would or could operate better/faster going in one ...
  • Perhaps for the benefit of the backseat driver . . .
  • Replied in case in point
    Lots of details; here a quick thumbnail.  Brazil has traditionally been a very unregulated market with heavy taxes on official sales.  Nikon was widely available in the ubiquitous grey market.  ...
  • Very nice, Ulrich.  Does not look like Silver Falls . . .
  • Nice work, Dean - you've shown what I see every day when I peek at my K-1 files.
  • Can you point me to any DA* zoom that's $500 let alone a FF* zoom?  "*" means highest quality in the Pentax ecosystem, and if the relatively equivalent high-end Canon is $2,500, I don't know why ...
  • At the point at which a pre-order is possible, the price will be known.  A DA* zoom is not likely to be cheap, nor should it be.
