  • I did use Q-7 with 200 and 300 mm lenses. Strictly a static excersize, no moving subjects, and tripod. Even with original  K-Q leaf shutter adapter, the combination is too slow for moving birds. ...
  • Replied in I agree
    So imagine Chevy charging Mercedes prices despite not being able to reach Mercedes performance, but "we did the best we possibly could, our buyers should understand that, and choose our car ...
  • Oh yes, selling 100 of such lenses in a year will deeply fill Ricoh's pockets. :-D Now I rest assured.
  • My solution is the good bridge camera, like Fujifilm HS50EXR, when I need 1000mm. Unique camera, unfortunately discontinued. 16 MP, on sensor PDAF focus super fast, 42x manual zoom. Surprisingly ...
  • I am talking about one model, K-mount, no competing with Sony and Canon. Just give option within the brand. We are talking about Pentax with historically very clumsy marketing strategies, and ...
  • You are not a market for such camera, clearly, but for every one die hard OVF person there are two or more accustomed to EVF, and as much or more sold out to the benefits of EVF. Gues which ones ...
  • If enough Pentaxians think like you, the brand goes. The attraction of K-mount mirrorless is to mitigate the flow of customers to other systems (because they want the benefits of EVF, and to ...
  • It is the fastest and most expensive focus tracking APPS-C DSLR on the market, in manual focus mode. Don't you get it?
  • Both converters will not work well with any of these lenses you listed, except maybe 55-300 with top Pentax bodies K-1 and K-3, not with others. If it is AF BBAR 2x F Tamron, then there will be ...
  • I am sure reasonably priced K-mount mirrorless APS-C from Pentax would be very successful, there are a lot more non-fatalistic Pentaxians wishing for EVF benefits then OVF die-hard brigade would ...
  • How come you were fine with all these K-01 posts in this forum?  And now when there is (horror, horror) mention of possible next mirrorless Pentax (which needs to happen if the company is to ...
  • Ricoh is selling less then 30000 cameras a year im the whole world, which means less then 100 a day in all countries combined. What do you think the development budget is with sales like that? It ...
  • It depends on what is the Ricoh's goal, if it is to sell more cameras, then yes, price/boosted unrealized AF  expectations relationship is a mistake. If they don't care about sales numbers, it is ...
  • It is a pretty big and significant metric at the price of most expensive APS-C body on the market, and proclaimed "flagship". And aimed at existing Pentax users who pretty much don't have a choice ...
  • Nice write up, but it would make more sense if K-3III was released with a price comparable to its AF performance, or in line with what Pentax users expect of 'lovely, but imperfect camera we ...
  • Ricoh has predominantly Pentax previous users as customers, so pitching upscale prices only  alienates those who can't afford it, and rewards those who can afford it with satisfaction of higher ...
  • I think it is unrealistic to expect Ricoh would suddenly fix all these issues, especially "traditional ones" (for Pentax) of inability to focus on smaller object in front of a busy and high ...
  • Way to go Ricoh! With these prices your self assured march to 0.1% world market DSLR share (but profitable!) is all but guaranteed 😬.
  • Seems like the tracking foil for focal length (barrel position) is misaligned  or damaged, so at 450mm end stop the camera thinks it is at 150mm. The AF gets whacked as well with the wrong ...
