  • Very nice.  Now please put a plm or a sdm motor in them,  so they will become even better.
  • I'll keep my fingers crossed, that you interpret better Asahi man than I do!
  • Sorry, " a couple of people " are working on aps-c? Aps-c is "still"  in full sight? I hope that your English is worse than mine Asahi man,  because all this doesn't sound very reassuring for the ...
  • +1 I work in pharma sales. Although I'm not so young anymore, I'm still nowhere near retirement A Commodore was the first computer I ever touched (it belonged to a friend). I use pc All my cars ...
  • Replied in New Normal?
    But they have already a very small market share,  right ?  So if they continue to shrink, soon they will be out of business.  So the only strategy here to survive, is to invest money ,try to keep ...
  • In your count you have included all the first generation SDM lenses, which even if they didn't break down, where ridiculously slow (compared to competition) in AF speed! So, they don't count -in ...
  • Alex , I have no doubt that it a fantastic lens,  but that's exactly the problem: together with the 16-85,  they are the only modern lenses for aps-c! P.S.: I'm not including the new 11-18 because ...
  • Dear Miles,  The answer is very simple: Ricoh has no intention whatsoever to invest serious money in Pentax R&D . They are trying to keep the brand alive with the absolute minimum of investment!
  • I apologize for not having the same artistic ability as obviously you have.  I'll try to improve myself.
  • Dear Joe, you definitely have to try out a modern canon, Nikon or Sony lens. Or even a Fuji, an Olympus or a Panasonic lens ! You will be shocked with the speed... or with the silence!
  • To me it's crystal clear that Pentax is no more in position to keep up with the rest of the camera industry. Every body else is running while Pentax seems to be crawling.  They obviously don't ...
  • Af mechanism, optical design and yes, release date! It's no coincidence that this particular lens is the best performing zoom lens made by Pentax. Fast and silent af,  no major optical flaws,  a ...
  • Dear friend. I use cropped bodies and lenses.  I am happy for what's going on in full frame,  but it is of little concern for me!
  • Dear zakaria, Most aps-c lenses from Pentax are screw driven antiquities or problematic SDM ones.  They have only 2 modern lenses :the 16-85 and the 55- 300 plm.  So there is a lot to be desired in ...
  • Created discussion thread 100th aniversary ...
    https://pentaxrumors.com/ So, if Pentax rumors are correct, for 2019 the only thing that we're gonna get is the DA 11-16 aps-c lens! That's it ! Nothing else ! All the rest of lenses and bodies are ...
  • At this point an insight from asahi man would be very helpful!  Where are you Asahi man?  When are we going to have our new aps-c flagship??
  • Created discussion thread Ricoh interview at cp +
    https://www.pentaxforums.com/articles/cpplus-2019/cp-plus-2019-pentax-interview.html So, what do you think?
  • I don't want a miracle camera!  I want a camera whose autofocus can keep up with my 6 year old running around in the playground and its video specs aren't from the previous century.  And none of ...
  • Why so early ? Why not in 2023, in order to celebrate the...  10th anniversary of the release of the original K3? I am almost certain that the Ricoh executives live in a parallel universe, there is ...
  • Replied in KP facelift..
    Btw, the new 85mm Dfa looks absolutely awesome. If it performs as well as the new 50mm,  it will set new standards in this lens category!
