  • Created user review thread K1 - Pentax ethos on steroids.
    After going to get a haircut one night in the local mall as a pre-cursor to picking up my lovely better half, I decided to walk around the corner to the local brick n mortar camera store to kill ...
  • They pretty much nailed it ..... That's a very fair assessment. Huge value for money, great resolving power, insane image stabilisation, improved but not up with the opposition AF in a nuggety well ...
  • Surprised what youll find, my K1 was a very good price on the shelf of a small Camera House store ....... and KS-1's going for a song at the same place. I am sure the big advance will be the AF ...
  • All class as usual Arijit.
  • Triplet is pretty much correct. Aps-c is good enough fot most unless you need massive billboards. FF k1 gives me improvement in low light noise for weddings plus processing speed and improved AF. D ...
  • Had k1 for about a month and its a very good sensor in low light, both handheld with the 5 axis stability and on tripod using low iso. I wouldn't think the Canon would be a good choice for low ...
  • Brief excursions into live view AF have been more than acceptable, however it wasnt a testing situation but i actually find the Pentax's lock very reliably in low light and LV
  • Nice images and Wellington on a good day is spectacular, but otherwise can be dismal..... were you the main shooter ?? I am positioning to move over to Geelong area (from Perth) perhaps in a year ...
  • Is it possible, that in their desire to build a small FF dslr and pack so much into it without the experience that Canikon have ..... they have overcooked the processors ability to keep up ? Does ...
  • Beautiful sharp images
  • Fantastic smooth sunset .... the K5 is no slouch and unless your printing big .... but yes, the K1 will certainly be awesome.
  • Replied in Sunset
    Lovely image, if anything some more clarity or contrast to accentuate the sunrays and horses ..... but that's a great capture.
  • DA12-24 is excellent, flare resistant and lovely blues and greens plus night time star bursts. It gives you the focal variety as opposed to a prime. It also cleans up distortion nicely in lightroom. ...
  • Im in total agreement with the principles you are discussing here. We have accepted in a religeous way that canikon is the one and only way to go for sports. Hence my disdain for Rishi's apparent ...
  • I don't think anyone here genuinely believes that the k1 is as good as any recent high performance nikon. The question is, how and why did they arrive at this conclusion, what part of the k1s ...
  • There is no doubt we all looked at this and in the words of john McEnroe.... said... you cannot be serious !!! But how does an outfit like this perform there tests, within what perameters and how ...
  • Possibly, when i have time. There is a very high possibility that k1 sucks in certain area's of AF compared to the opposition, but overall on all planes,angles  and settings?? That k20d was so good ...
  • That the k1 is better than the rest certainly raised my eye browse!!! But is it really as bad as you have given impression ...... ???
  • So, Rishi's one dimensional test indicates the k1 is ... in my words ... all but unusable and unacceptable at 50 %. My own different test with the skateboarder gave me an almost 100% strike rate ...
  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Rishi,
    I did a test several days before your review was published with a skateboarder coming downhill towards me past me and away from me downhill with almost 100 % strike rate apart from the...
