  • You are perfectly right. This church is in the centre of Goudhurst, UK and is situated next to a pub. In 2009 the weather conditions were ideal and there were no people around so the tower was ...

  • I hardly notice moiré in my pictures taken with a K-3 or KP. In pictures taken with older Pentax cameras using AA filters I sometimes noticed moiré. The sensors in higher pixel count Pentax ...
  • How do you measure image quality? What aspects of IQ are important for you? For myself I compared some pictures taken with a K-200D, K-x and KP, all with a Pentax DA17-70mm. Generally speaking I am ...
  • Thanks for your answer. I had a good look at your picture. It couldn't be tele but only wide angle because it its perspective. Personally I like WA phography very much:
  • EXIF says: Pentax K-1, 85mm.
  • It is not a Pentax lens, but an Olympus lens. The Olympus XZ-1 and XZ-2 have the same lens. I found out when I wanted to make a distortion profile for Lensfun. Lensfun indicates: camera MX-1, lens ...
  • [...] Of course, you are quite right. I should have added: it also depends on the kind of photographer you are. When I take a flower pic, I use my DA70mm Ltd because it gives oily, creamy pictures ...
  • When testing lenses under the same conditions there will be a difference in IQ. Last autumn I tested my new DA*11-18mmf2.8 against my DA12-24mm/f4, just to see if the DA*11-18mm was decentered. At ...
  • Replied in Not any more
    Early 2015 I bought a copy and used it on a K-30. The results were OK until I found out that the right hand side was unsharp at 85mm. That became worse and last year I noticed that the right hand ...
  • Replied in Sales vs use
    The last few weeks I used the DA*16-50mm/f2.8 PLM, the DA17-70mm/f4, the DA12-24mm/4 and the DA*11-18mm/f2.8. It is not a matter of the old lenses 'still work', no they still produce excellent ...
  • That how you look at it. The K-1000 cost about a quarter of my monthly income in those days. Now it would cost more than my monthly retirement income. It is not just a matter of 'unwilling to pay'. ...
  • We were a bit spoiled: 1. by simpler models next to high end cameras. 2. by prices which got lower all the time from about 2005 to about 2016. The K-70 was the last cheap Pentax DSLR. There have ...
  • I just had a quick look at prices of system cameras, lenses and Pentax DSLR gear. I may get a bit sentimental but the time that a camera such as the Pentax K-500 was offered at a price of 399 euros ...
  • I bought my first Pentax in 1979, a Pentax ME. In 2004 I wanted to buy a DSLR, preferably Pentax. The price of the ist-d held me back: 2000 euros, so I bought a Canon Digital Rebel for 1040 euros. ...
  • I looked up what the differences were between the two systems. Technically speaking the mirrorless camera has more room for improvement than a DSLR, e.g. burst rate. Besides the mirrorless camera ...
  • Your guess is as good as mine: nobody knows. Two points are important: 1. Pentax has a reputation for missing the digital boat. 2. There is a generation gap. Younger people will use the cameras on ...
  • Replied in Lonely tractor
    Your guess is correct. A WA lens can make a cramped space look very wide. These pictures were taken at 11mm.
  • Replied in Lonely tractor
    You are right. I knew it was an old tractor and I looked it up: it was built from 1978 to 1984.
  • Created discussion thread Lonely tractor
    On my bicycle tour today I took my K-3II and DA*11-18mm.
