Nicolas Alexander Otto: Hm, even as a former Pentaxian who loves the K1 and thinks it still is better than most other cameras on the market I am disappointed by what is offered here. Little to no need to upgrade for most photographers I think. Well, at least with this I am no longer tempted to switch back. Sad actually.

Yep, I certainly am still interested in getting a Pentax FF. I love what the K1 brings to the table. Still for me the problem is also that I can't get a UWA lens that takes screw in filters. If that had been addressed at some point I may have switched to the K1 in the past. Now I need that and a body that beats the crap out of the competition like the K1 did back in the day. :D

Hoping for a FF 16-40 f/3.5 or something out of the ordinary.

On article Fujifilm X-H1 First Impressions Review (723 comments in total)

If this was a FF body I'd switch from Nikon over to Fuji. Had some of their cameras to toy around with, but they were just to small for my hands - although as an avid backpacker the weight saving is pretty cool. So yeah, this would be a great camera for me. Maybe if the XT-3 version of this comes out with good low light comparable to FF I'll switch. If Nikons mirrorless isn't out by then. :D

Sardonic G: Whatever happened to Tokina?

Now that's a good question. I hope they release an UWA lens with filter thread sometime soon, there is no alternatives to the first party stuff so far.

Nicolas Alexander Otto: Finally Nikon users get an update for the 14-24; as do all other camera users. Good news all around!

Yep, I had it for several weeks then upgraded to the 14-24 because I wasn't satisfied with the image quality. Had the 14-24 for a year and then upgraded to the 14mm 1.8 by Sigma. I mainly was looking for a night photography lens though. Since I prefer to use my 16-35 (less IQ for sure but more versatile lighter and I don't need to carry the filterset into the mountains). But I guess that's just me. I didn't want to shortsell the 14-24 by any means, nor do I want to shortsell the 15-30 (gorgous sunstar) but those just didn't click with me for various reasons.

Hahaha, good that I don't have to give my fingerprints to any camera brand so far.

Richmondthefish: Surprised it wasn't Pentax? Fake news?

I wish it was. The K1 is astounding value for money. But yeah, it doesn't have the lenses or the support in the consumer base.

I hope they don't get lazy now. There is much more innovation needed on their part. Still, as a consumer that is good news to hear they are recovering as it seems.

Pretty cool! Innovation at it's best in the filter department.

Although under closer inspection I would say that it is just as possible that the photographer stood next to Locardi and took a shot in the same time frame. There are some differences after all such as the lights on the left and right side of the pavement and the crop as well. Elias being a tad narrower than the other guys.

Still that makes Canon's defense all the more funny.

I must agree with this statement that "[...] the greater part of this story and by far the largest issue here, is the fact that Canon is using a free image resource like Unsplash to fuel their social media rather than tapping into their large community of photographers. That's incredibly insulting to both their own consumers and to the photography community itself."

It sure tells something about what the company is thinking about their customers.

Max Iso: Nikon is King.

"A king has his reign and then he dies, it's inevitable" and I say that as a Nikon user. The D850 was a solid camera but still they have a long way to go before closing up to Sony, Pentax, Olympus or Fuji in many regards. They can't slack off now.

Damn, what a sunstar!

Does come as no surprise I guess. I always stayed away from apple because of their offensive marketing, high prices and shady sales tactics.

Albert Valentino: It isa good start. The next step to is ban the high altitude jets that spray the skies to saturate the atmoshere with aluminum, barium, and sulphiruc acid in through chemtrails. Even on the rare days when they are not spraying the skies with these toxins the skies in many places have lost their beautiful blue color with the whitish haze. My night skies have lost their potential to see stars as clearly lthey used to.

If you do not onow what I am talking about you have not been looking up. This is happening everywhere with a stated objective of dumping 20,000,000 tons of aluminum in the atmosphere yearly. http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org

Lol, that joke got me. :D

In reply to:

Nicolas Alexander Otto: Wow, didn't think people like her would tap into the market. But I must say that I believe she has lots to teach. Although much of the stuff she does needs giant budgets to begin with so it'd be hard to pick up.

Thanks, will do so!
