  • Ive done some architecture work using my crop sensors and the k3 / DA12 24 is an excellent combo.
  • Replied in Here's a tip...
    Almost any modern dslr or mirrorless, correctly sorted and producing regular sharp images will do. Its once again down to the photographer If you've got an older canikon with a nice sharp lens, ...

    I don't get too caught up with surmising about new gear which comes up every 12 months ........... but I have the K5iis and together with nice glass can still kill a great image. Nice shots....... ...
  • Agreed, looks like a winner but in Australia is AUD$3,400. That shot of the deer and 100% crop wide open at f5.6 was a very good example of what it's capable of .... and high quality indeed.
  • Nothing yet ........... There are a few Sigma's for sale online here in Australia at very reasonable prices, incl: 1 x 50-500 in good cond for $450 1 x 150-500 mint hardly used for $700 This also ...
  • Have you ever done the k5iis ? I share the thinking on k3 though. InterestingtInterestingto compare the both
  • By Bigma, are you saying its the 50 500mm ?? I believe you shoot apsc also? Does this work on FF? Whats the widest aperture at 500 ?
  • Exactly... I almost never shoot burst at a wedding and therefore this whole argument is a non issue for me. Guess im old school .... used tshooting film lol.

    I think that if your in a part of the US where you can't get any joy with a local store then your other alternative is some of the online stores, some of whom have a reasonable reputation backing ...

    Ricoh and Pentax have long history and while we arent seeing Pentax's that print out your photo instantlt, there will be strong technical correlations and both companies benefitting. Seems like ...

    Somewhat unnecessarily aggressive, dude..... He raises a valid point which has a reasonable answer and with a response like that he probably wont ever want to come to Pentax.... Chill out my man
  • ..... possibly saying? Is that so many people buy gear based on name and obvious availability and advice from pimply faced know it all young sales people who read a brochure and think they know ...
  • Replied in Dealers in US
    ..... i finally got my first pentax kx from an online importer from asia when i could not find a camera in a store for love nor money in NZ. The NZ IMPORTER was even worse and believe now replaced. ...

    Im a New Zealander living in Western Australia and downunder the issue is similar but maybe not so bad. There maybe a retailer somewhere but a matter of finding them. Firstly, pentax shot itself in ...
  • Yes, outdoors is Pentax's go-to advertising niche, but the camera is ideally suited to weddings, especially with the new pro level glass. What some in the Pentax camp have hated hearing is that ...
  • I use the K1 now for weddings, but haven't needed it much since I purchased it. I have used K5iis and K3 for a while now and superb IQ. Some lenses are a bit slow focusing and I only have a sigma ...
  • Your in danger territory here with your shutter speeds. You need to at least match your shutter speed to your equivalent focal length. At 300mm your crop sensor is effectively 450mm plus your 1.4 ...
  • Lovely images of  beautiful place .... one day maybe ?? #5 I find a bit yellow, perhaps cool the tones ?? second to last, I love the subtle treatment of this.....
  • Just watched a couple of vids and reading between the lines of peoples comments here. I could drop a few hundred dollars on a sigma or..... Go for better IQ wider open as I know what happens when a ...
