  • The D-FA 28-105 is a surprising performer, as a standard zoom with a useful longer f-range, for anyone not fixated on f/2.8. Its quality images are backed up by MTF measurements (see ephotozine) ...
  • A touch screen doesn't interest me either. However, it's one of several features, including an articulated screen*, that should be provided in the new APS-C body, simply because it does appeal to ...
  • It's rather like Gursky's "Rhein II" with people! Link ;-) Philip
  • It looks a good shot of the interior of the building to me - I can't see where noise is a problem.  If it were mine, at the capture stage I would be more concerned about the over-exposure of the ...
  • Lovely photos Ludek, especially the first when viewed at full-screen size. Philip
  • It makes very good sense to have two of the same model so that each is ready to shoot with a different lens.  Moving quickly between two bodies is much easier when they have identical controls and ...
  • Another vote for the K-5 series. It simply feels just right. With the more capable internals, articulated screen, and extra dials of the KP (not bothered about the top LCD), a K-5 New would have ...
  • Replied in I'm an Idiot.
    Thank you, Dean - I think you could be right.  I've been taking photos as a hobby for over 8 years but only recently tried back-button focusing, BBF.  I think I'm now hooked and might never go ...
  • Replied in I'm an Idiot.
    This is not a comment on Dean's mishap but a request for info.  If back-button focus is used, is AF-S ever needed? Philip
  • Although you might not be interested, I think it is worth mentioning for others that the Pentax AF 201 FG AW is a great little flash unit to use in place of the on-board flash.  It is very compact ...
  • Mike, that is exactly the correct response !!! ;-) :-D Philip
  • As a Pentaxian since 2011 (and for the foreseeable future), it is always good to see great results from the brand. However, also note that 3 of the top 7 were captured using pre-2010 cameras of ...
  • Replied in ISO in FF
    Pentax KP at ISO 6400:
  • Replied in ISO in FF
    And similarly for the amazing KP in APS-C. Philip
  • Ludek, although I don't have any Sigma lenses for comparison, I often use a Pentax DA !8-135, and at the apertures you're shooting, f/8 to f/11, it is very sharp.  (There are always compromises ...
  • Another good set, Ludek, showing the wonderful Devon coastal scenery. (I prefer the brightness and contrast of the photos in this set compared with the first set.) Philip
  • If you don't have a gadget for screen calibration, here's an easy tip for laptop use, which works best with a reflective screen: First make sure there is a very dark image or background on most of ...
  • Ludek you are fortunate indeed to be able to work and in such a great location.  The series captures the variety of wonderful coastal scenes very well, but I agree with Larry that the photos are ...
  • Replied in Sorry...
    Thank you, Brian.  Others will find it more difficult to be helpful when there is no description of things such as the nature of the perceived problem and how an image was captured. I agree with ...
  • Still no answer from OP to "What noise?"
