On article BPG image format aims to replace JPEGs (204 comments in total)

Being that the differences in output quality are probably not much, the feature that could really make a difference and push BPG forward is file size. Since nothing about this is mentioned, and probably it is the opposite because of the compatibility with 14 bit, I'm assuming there is no improvement in this area.

On article High-end full frame roundup (2014) (595 comments in total)

This is not a "High-end full frame" roundup, it is just a list of every single full frame camera released a the last two years. Except of course the d4s, which should be the first candidate for this list.

In reply to:

fx3000se: ignoring video capabilities, can the e pl7 compete in any way with the
a) sony rx100m3
b) pana lx100

Depending on the lens you mount on it, the E-PL7 can be as good / not as good / better than the above mentioned.

tom1234567: There are better cameras on the market and a lot cheaper too
I hate these rip of companies. and Leica is the biggest rip of going
rebadging cameras then double the price plus.
some people need to be educated!!!!!!!

A comparison with a similar product would be to the Fuji X100T which is 1300$ and has a very good viewfinder built in. That is not the same ballpark to me, it's not even the same sport.

On article Hands on with the Pentax 645Z (705 comments in total)
In reply to:

nickwit: Can somebody please tell me how the extra sensor size affects aperture, i.e. what the equivalent f stop is on a ff.
Thank you

In terms of light gathering it is essentially the same. In terms of depth of field relative to the full image captured, approximately (note that there is an aspect ratio difference) a 0.79x ratio applies, i.e. for the same focal length and focusing distance to get the equivalent DOF effect of a f/2.8 on a 135 camera you'll need a f/3.5 lens on a medium format camera with a sensor like the one on the Pentax 645z.

On article Ricoh announces HD Pentax DA AF 1.4X AW rear converter (52 comments in total)
In reply to:

Anastigmat: The Kenko Pro 300 1.4x and Sigma APO 1.4x teleconverters both have 5 elements. This Pemtax has only 4 elements. Even though more isn't necessarily better, you have to wonder how well it performs against the Kenko Pro, which is unfortunately not available in Pentax mount. This teleconverter is also designated a DA, not a DA*, for what it is worth, but its pricing is more DA* than DA.

Never in the history of Pentax any converter was given a * to its name. That is a designation for lenses only.

I've just begun waiting for the Chinese version of the film duplicator

This should be constant f/1.2, weigh less than 0.5kg, built of titanium and I will buy it if it is not over 200 rupees.

On article Have Your Say: Best DSLR / SLT of 2013 (335 comments in total)
In reply to:

Thoughts: Pentax users , although much fewer, tend to be more informed about their gear, which is quite good value for money.

I have never used Pentax DSLR, but I do love their small prime lenses. Nikon isn't very keen to offer similar DX lenses (35mm, 40mm, anything else I miss?), which was one of the main reasons why I decided to leave Nikon camp- I don't think I want to upgrade my DX to FX with everything heavier...

Well done, Pentax (and Sony) this year. I think the day when the industry without these two companies would be really a bad day for everyone...

In reply to:

jon404: Pentax people -- if I got a K-30, does Pentax make a 35mm or 40mm small, bright, sharp prime lens that you would recommend? I hate zooms.

DA 35mm/2.8 Macro
You'll love it

In reply to:

JackM: I wish that 40mm f/2.8 kit pancake with the K-01 was a 32mm f/1.4 or f/2.

I doubt they can make one of those very slim
