About me:

To learn the art of photography from real photographers.
Edit, 1/26/2018 or 11 years after that first sentence. I have learned a lot. I have to say it was and still is a very fun journey. And I hope I am a real Photographer. I enjoy helping others with technical issues (as I can).

  • Good for you, a replacement is perfect. A cleaning may not have been perfect because of the Auto Focus Module. With that much of a splatter I would personally be a bit worried some residue landed ...
  • When the K-5 was launched in 2010 its retail price was $1600. The K-3 III is only $400 more a decade latter. Very similar pricing. Members here bought the K-5 at that price. The only complaint I ...
  • That eagle is awesome, so majestic in my view. It’s like he is wearing a suit and he’s is the judge.
  • I agree, its 750g and the old version was 550g, they have the same diameter but the new one is 117mm long versus 99mm. So its much bigger and heavier than the already big and heavy DA*16-50mm V1. ...
  • Replied in My first DSLR
    Really nice camera, and picture!
  • I really like the first pic, your friend absolutely looks the part. Maybe the rain did it, but great pic IMO.
  • Pentax gear in my experience can handle any natural normal weather, don't know about hurricanes, ash fallout ext. Once I was shooting on top of a high rise building during the start of a storm. It ...
  • A very biased toward mirrorless review. It’s written without apology biased toward mirrorless giving no true benefits of dSLR versus mirrorless. You can forget about it being close to his Nikon ...
  • A picture is worth more than 1000 words. In that first picture I awe of that Birdsnest that looks like a heron built. I’ve never seen a nest that size and out in the open on top of the chimney I ...
  • Stunning really, nice work.
  • For me it’s (and others I’ve read) the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5. I just bought the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 (non VC). So I would have a fast walk around Zoom of course I’ve been using it because I want ...
  • Replied in Soldier fly .
    You’ve just convinced me about the Pentax 100 mm F 3.5 macro. I don’t own one and wouldn’t use one very much I don’t think so I’ve been looking at the 3.5 version as a go-between but was not sure ...
  • Beautiful series of pictures!
  • I am not in the market for one but I am happy to see it says weather resistant finally Pentax might start making all of its small primes weather resistant.
  • Both shots are nice. That first shot is extremely hard for the average photographer including me to get. It’s a neat looking pic, not even the wingtips have blur. Well done.
  • One variable that did change was what appears to be sunlight from a window to the right of the pic. You can see it, on the left of the box, a shinny spot that changes shape to the right of “made ...
  • First I really like this picture! FWIW It looks like the red jacket is over saturated. All colors are pushed but they look really nice and help make this pic. Perhaps bring down the color in the ...
  • Nice pictures from your K20D. I still own and won’t sell my K20D. Your 55mm f/1.4 is also a very good lens you show.
  • Pixel peeping sharpness varies between all of them. On one picture it’s sharper on the top versus another picture of being sharper on the bottom so they’re almost equal depending on where you ...
  • Replied in Which One?
    The first made me stare, it has features that makes you look and think more so than the second for me. The second picture sometimes seems better perhaps often times but I’ll go with my first ...
