  • Very interesting.

  • Commented on photo Shadow lines in the Dawns first rays challenge

    Thank you, Rajeshb. I'm lucky to live close - 15 min by car plus 15 min walking - to an excellent viewpoint, see the post below.

  • Commented on photo Shadow lines in the Dawns first rays challenge

    Thank you Joe for your words,
    but I sold my FZ1000, though it's an excellent camera. Simply I had 3 type of cameras - the pocketable Panasonic LX7, FZ1000 and Pentax DSLR. FZ1000 can't do the...

  • Commented on photo Shadow lines in the Dawns first rays challenge

    Thank, you, emfor and Kipper.
    Part of merit goes to the fantastic viewpoint - a hill with a church on top of it - especially in winter when low level fog in the river valley is very common

  • Commented on photo Moon rainbow at Yosemite in the Waterfall challenge

    Thank you, it was my first night attempt with my first (20 days old at the time) DSLR

  • There are just two wrong answers, IMHO:

    - Optical all the way
    - EVF all the way

  • I agree with noflashplease. I own FA 50 1.4, DA 35, FA 28. They have 7, 6 and 5 lenses respectively  and no "special" - ED or aspheric - lenses, except one in the (just) 5-lens 28. And they are ...
  • 50% commission? What do you think? It's enough? :)
  • Very well SRS has good reviews, I had just one (positive) experience with them, a DA 50 f1.8 bought for a friend here in Italy Alberto
  • Sorry but I don't know well the world of Italian Pentax sellers, since I bought a new camera or lens every 3-5 years. Anyway last buy was just a few months ago, a K-70 from fotocolombo.it . Not a ...
  • Yes Mark, you are right, exchange rate is not that good now. In Italy the SRS offer on K-1 is still a bit better than usual sale price, but the official Italian importer gives you a full 4 year ...

  • FA50 maybe obsolete and cheap but at 250 pixel/mm with Pixel Shift yields excellent results.

    Ambitions? I've read at least 5 reviews in the 90s saying the Pentax - optically very close to FA - was...
