  • Any equipment with fungus should be disposed of immediately. It is almost impossible to get rid of it once an infection sets in.
  • The image snapped by the camera is the content of the image. If, after the fact one is using post processing to replace large swaths of that image, then that person has done a very poor job of ...
  • People can be afraid of progress and the changes wrought by it. Current events are full of stories of people trying to turn back the hands of time because they are afraid they can't keep up or ...
  • Ask yourself if any differences other than ergonomics are really going to matter to you. Almost nobody actually needs or uses all the capabilities of a modern camera.
  • The US copyright act in the 1960s extended copyright protection to the creator for 28 years. This would be the law a 1960s photograph falls under. In 1976, copyrights were extended significantly, ...
  • We do that sort of thing all the time at the place i work at. Every month I get a sales report of what has been a slow mover, and I concentrate on getting those items in front of the customer with ...
  • Stop reading the whiners complaining about it on DPR.
  • I don't do that type of photography, but I managed one with the D FA* 85/1.4 wide open that looks really good. I don't post pictures here, and won't ever as I seem to be on permanent moderation, ...
  • Sony is about gimmicks. Cameras are just the latest vehicle for them.  Pentax has always been about photography and building equipment for photographers. That hasn't changed even though the ...
  • Yeah, the D FA*85/1.4 is worth what they are asking for it. The only problem is that one needs to buy one and then use it to figure out that its worth it.
  • Probably because they want to stay in business.

  • When I was shooting for money, every purchase was made through the lens of a business decision. I’m a hobby shooter now. I prefer it. The equipment purchasing decision is do I want it and can I ...
  • There is a certain amount of vagary in the AF due to the AF sensor being somewhat larger than the spot in the viewfinder. It's another "know your equipment" thing. It's not that the AF isn't ...
  • They might accomplish bankrupting the division the same way Pentax bankrupted themselves making mass market gear for a marketplace that wasn’t volume buying from them.
  • What is known is that an 85/2 is so close to the 77LTD that Pentax would be competing with themselves. A person who doesn't mind a slow 85mm lens can buy a 70-210/4 or an 80-200/2.8 and get 85mm as ...
  • Pentax isn’t a volume seller, so making something that could sell in volume isn’t going to sell in volume. Would they sell more 85/2 lenses than 85/1.4 lenses? Not likely. Believe it or not, Pentax ...
  • Replied in Ricoh/Pentax
    You are conflating two different things as being the same thing and coming to an incorrect conclusion.
  • I've read the literature from Pentax regarding the thing. They say quite bluntly that it is their design. I expect Tokina would have words if this wasn't true. This has been discussed extensively ...
  • Ricoh walked into the purchase of Pentax with their eyes open. Why would they bother to keep churning out great equipment like the K1, the D FA* 50/1.4 and now the D FA* 85/1.4 (this is a ...
  • That was a tongue in cheek comment. Sorry that you didn't get it. I suspect medical imaging stayed with Hoya. They bought Pentax for the medical imaging division, and ended up with the camera ...
