  • Just charge the battery and see what happens then.
  • In the past I bought a B&W CPL but I never used it because putting it on and taking it off is such a nuisance. The Hoya Fusion is quite slim and can be left on the DA20-40mm Ltd permanently. The ...
  • Today my Hoya Fusion CPL arrived. The DA20-40mm Ltd and the Hoya Fusion CPL are a wonderful combination. Thanks for your suggestion.
  • You can test this. Take of picture of many details at a distance of some 10 metres and take a picture. Turn the camera upside down and take the same picture again. Compare the two pictures. If one ...
  • On Dutch Marktplaats there is a K-S2 (and a DA16-45mm) for sale.
  • Honestly speaking, it is difficult to work with two different systems. You know how to work with your Nikon and yet have to learn how to use your Pentax. For your kind of phtotography the Nikon is ...
  • I meant AF correction, not sharpening
  • With my DA70mm I had the same kind of problem. It frontfocussed slightly on my K-S2. took the same pictures and adjusted AF each time: 0, -1, -2, -3, etc. At -0,2 the pictures were razor sharp. On ...
  • I do so, because some 14 years ago I had bought a decentred DA16-45mm. I did not realise that until I showed some pictures in this forum and somebody drew my attention to it. I went back to  the ...
  • A distinction should be made between AF-S and AF-C. AF-S is OK in Pentax cameras. The weak point is AF-C. I never use AF-C, but always AF-S. I have no complaints about Pentax AF. There are better ...
  • The AF on the KP seems more accurate than the AF on the K-S2. My DA50mm and DA70mm Ltd showed some frontfocus on the K-S2, but on the KP they focus perfectly. Why are you so unhappy with the AF on ...
  • It all depends on your style of photography and postprocessing. When I use the DA16-85mm I use the range 16-40mm for 90% of my pictures. If I should have the DA18-135mm I would miss the range 16-18mm.
  • Do you really need the DA18-135mm? I see that you already have the DA16-85mm. In the past I always bought the cheaper Pentax models, like K-30, K-500 and K-S2. The IQ is OK. But they are all ...
  • Yes, you are perfectly right. Burgemeester Brouwersstraat
  • Replied in Old church
  • So, you are Dutch :-) When my grandfather and grandmother married in 1903, they lived in the last house in picture nr. 2. They lived there for 2 years
  • I feel the character of the modern HD Pentax lenses has changed slightly. The HD lenses expose perfectly, but give more neutral colours. I have used my DA16-85mm for five years and occasionally I ...
  • Replied in Old church
    Yes, you are right.
  • My DA20-40mm Ltd is sharp from corner to corner at apertures 5.6 and 8, whereas my DA21mm Ltd wasn't, so I sold it. I expect a prime lens to be better than a zoomlens. The plastic fantastics are ...
  • I did the same kind of thing with my DA21mm, DA20-40mm and DA17-70mm. I showed the pictures to my wife and her comment was that all the pictures were sharp. Then I showed her two images side by ...
