  • "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."
  • I agree, it is just that tests can tell you something. If I go back to the test in question the K-1 & K-5 score pretty close, but the K-1 has 2x times the number of pixels, so if it is linear ...
  • In a one pixel vs one pixel comparison, yes.  Comparing at the same resolution as you mentioned, no.  I had a K-5 and now have a K-3, and I do admit that I have pixel peeped. Doug
  • OK, explain.
  • You are right that it is a pixel by pixel comparison as opposed to a scene at a common resolution, but I don't think that makes it "fatally flawed", just in need of interpretation. The fact that ...
  • FWIW, I would say not a FA50/f1.4.  At f/1.4 it is just too soft.  OK for letting the light in, but that's about it...  When calibrating the AF of this lens on my cameras I always have to got to ...
  • FWIW, I prefer Embedded.  If it is not appearing as an option, are you shooting PEF?  If so take any picture with the camera set for DNG (assuming it is an option, I don't recall seeing what ...
  • I see sharp bits.  I also see that it is shot at f2.8... this will have a shallower DOF on the K-1 than an APC camera.  Just a thought. Doug
  • I take a different approach.  Typically in these situations I have another bag for other things like personal effects, water bottle, etc.  So I  just put my Q equipment in individual pouches and ...
  • OK, so 4.2% bigger (by area) ;-)
  • By the math... K-5 APS sensor size / MP = 24mm x 16mm / 16MP = 24mm2/MB K-3 APS sensor size / MP = 24mm x 16mm / 24MP = 16mm2/MP K-1 FF sensor size / MP = 36mm x 24mm / 36MP = 24mm2/MP The sensor ...
  • Go to Photoprice.ca, select any Pentax product and see who carries it... Henry's, Vistek, Camaera Canada, Lozeau, McBains, Broadway, Aden, The Camera Store, etc.  You can find what's close to you ...
  • No comment on the veracity of his analysis but it does remind me of the movie documentary Mondo Vino which alleged that wineries style their wines specifically to get high scores from Wine ...
  • I dad similar thoughts, why a K-1 over a K-3 at this point?  If you have a good reason certainly go for it. If you go for the K-3 option the FA 43 Ltd might be a bit long as a standard prime. ...
  • Replied in K-1
    Ahhhh...  I forgot film, I was only thinking digital.  I also have a ME Super and a Minox 35.  And a sheet of cardboard in which I could put a pin hole... Doug
  • Ya, I love mine.  Sharp across the whole range. Doug
  • Replied in K-1
    K-3, K-01 and Q-S1.  The Q gets the least use, I need to drag it out more.  The K-3 is for when my main purpose is photography, and K-01 is used a lot for trips where taking photos is a side benefit. ...
  • That's what I say every time I have to a lens hood separately for a Q lens ;-( Thanks for the input.  My brain was dead about the DA40 lens hood. Doug
  • Created discussion thread 08 Wide Zoom Lens Hood
    Hi, I just got a Pentax 08 Wide Zoom for my Q-S1.  I forgot that it would not come with an included lens hood. 1. Has anyone bought the optional lens hood and have experiences/thoughts? 2. Has ...
  • There is also the DA 20-40 Ltd.  I quite like it and while it covers your range you will find it large based on your previous comments.  And it is not cheap! Doug
