Kamox: Are you telling me that we're getting a better lens than the venerable Nikkor 13/5.6 for 1/40th of the price?

Let's hope so! :)

Maybe something to replace my Samyang if the sunstar looks good. Psyched. Although it'll be interesting to see how this fares against the Irix 15mm f2,4

Been using their products for years now. Very intrigued by this new line.

Damn, I'd so love to go there and take "falloutesque" shots. These look rather like uninspiring instagram "been there" shots though.

WordsOfFarewell: If there was a decent UWA lens that takes screw in filters I'd by one - I just don't find these square filters very practical in harsh environments.

Seems like for lowlight this is the camera to go, just like me beloved K5 was back in the day for crop. I expected excellency out of Pentax and they delivered on their promises.

Oh, are there any tests yet which show the quality of converted Nikon lenses? Getting a Pentax Body with Nikon lenses could be a good solution until some more lenses are released - and I wouldn't have to change the lens park right away. I somehow would like to return to Pentax to be honest. And about the Irix I have yet to see good practical tests but it looks promising indeed!

Damn, this is a landscaper's / astro photographer's dream. I wonder how one can wait 14 years to pick up a camera when something that unique is waiting to be captured. Those are just stunning shots. I'd give leg to get to shoot such conditions! He truly is blessed! (although I would imagine social live can be difficult down there)

Interesting shots! I would love to see some shots with the astro tracker in action though. As that might be a point of consideration for many landscapers like me.

On article Pentax K-1 Pixel Shift Resolution: Updated Field Test (210 comments in total)

Hm, interesting. However I assume that 30sec sky exposures wouldn't look too great even with silky pix. :/

Nice for quick editing. Always wondered why this option wasn't added earlier, seems so obvious. Looking forward to it.

ChrisH37: Read the specs, saw the price, massively tempted as I was about to buy a Sony a7RII anyway.

Then I looked at the lens lineup. I know everyone has to start somewhere, but the native lens lineup is absurdly expensive.

£2000 for a near equivalent to a 35mm 1.8 / 85mm 1.8 combo (31mm and 77mm in Pentax speak). £1900 for a 70-200mm 2.8.

Yeah the lenses - UWA - to be exact keep me from switching back from Nikon. The rebranded Tamron 15-30 is twice the price. :/

Did something like this ever happened to Nikon or Canon?

Now I'd see that as a good sign! :)

This together with the new Irix 15mm and the Sigma 20 1.4 would be a dream set up for nightscapers. Would love such a lens for FF. :)

Great article, very informative. Can't wait for the first test of the astro-tracker function!

WordsOfFarewell: If this gets a full frame version, I'm in!

I'm not so certain about that. The 18-35 1.8 also got a FF version for a reasonable price. ;)

On article The long, difficult road to Pentax full-frame (617 comments in total)

I am very curious to see the third party support for the system actually. That's going to be I think the deciding factor for me whether to switch back from Nikon to Pentax or not.

On article Worth the wait? A look inside the Pentax K-1 (651 comments in total)

I only left Pentax about a 2 years ago because I wanted FF now it seems like I have to switch back ... At least give it a serious try out to see how good it is.

WordsOfFarewell: Good thing Sigma lenses are getting amazingly good these days. :)

Ah, yeah forgot about that one. But I thought the trinity is usually referred to as 14-24 24-70 70-200. I get your point however. ;)
