  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    @Simon Johnson Because there is a huge difference between concluding that "AF tracking not up to level of peers" and the first bullet point in the Cons like be "Poor AF". The statement "poor AF"...

    @rrccad
    The Cons bullet list already has a few totally unnecessary, borderline passive aggressive Cons like "Poor AF" and "Limited selection of modern AF lenses". A reviewer cannot make the case...

    The K1 doesn't need Silkypix, it shoots DNG which Adobe (and most others) process out of the box. No waiting necessary.

    So DPR did a predictive AF test of a 36 mp DSLR with the lens at max aperture and concluded that the K-1 has "poor AF"? That's odd, the D800, D600 and Canon 6D didn't get any such "AF test". Oh...

  • Sony E-mount lenses are either wildly over-priced mediocre or expensive garbage, their bodies are horrendous to shoot with. Fujifilm lenses are in another category, their bodies are a joy to...

    @Barney Britton But you didn't have any predictive AF tracking test in your Canon 6D or Nikon D600. And the K-1 review clearly states in the conclusion that the K-1 AF system "is an improvement...

    Readers have every right to make negative comments if they feel there is a lack of consistency across reviews. Asking questions or raising concerns doesn't automatically mean fanboys have their...

    You say the K1 results are in line with previous Pentax models, DPR says the K1 AF is an improvement on previous Pentax models, yet it's only the K1 whose review summary Con said "Poor AF", neither...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    DPR writes: "While the AF system of the K-1 can't keep up with some of its peers, it is an improvement over previous Pentax DSLRs."

    Then how come the K3's review didn't have a single conclusion...

    @ET2 A7RII and D810 are more expensive camera, the lenses for the A7RII use sophisticated stepping motors, Nikon's predictive AF technology is class leading. But he makes a valid point about the...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    I agree completely with Zvonimir. When I had my K-30, I had no major problems tracking birds in flight or my daughter running around. And with motor-less DA primes in AF Single Shot, focussing is...

    @SungiBr
    For the bike test yes. For other images on the AF page, discuss the Sigma 35 1.4 and the Pentax FA 77 1.8, a motor-less "screw driver" lens.

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Yes I read the review, DPR said they used a single center AF point in AF Continuous because they couldn't get good results with it in Array mode (i.e. all AF points active). A camera with 25 cross...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    What "overly praised"? Imaging Resource has exact measurements for AF speed and the times are in line with the rest of the market. Everyone knows that Nikon's predictive AF is the best on the...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    Testing AF-C with only the center AF point selected is poor testing methodology. The K-1 has 25 cross type AF points, there is no reason why it shouldn't do accurate AF tracking with the full array...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    From Imaging Resource K-1 review: "Autofocus performance was swift, comparing well with the Pentax K-3 II in my informal, real-world testing. (And our lab testing likewise found autofocus...

  • Commented on article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review

    That paragraph sounds like they were using one of the FA screw driver lenses which don't have AF motors. Let's hope DPR tested more than one body because publishing this review because all of the...

    A fully weather sealed FF camera with 5-axis In-Body Image Stabilization with class leading DR and overall IQ for an unheard of $1800? Any award other than Silver or Gold would have been an...

  • The Panasonic FZ1000 is $600 and DPR gave it a Gold Award so clearly there is no destroying in this case.

  • @Nobby2016
    Pentax offering feature rich cameras is NOT a bad thing, nor is it something new. Nothing sucks more than an entry level camera with great IQ but tiny viewfinders and one command dial...
