  • Replied in Pentax istDL
    Are you using an original SD card or a newer SDHC card? Doug
  • This is actually good advice.  I mentioned ages ago about a friend who had a K5+DA*16-50 and found a big spike in usage at 28mm.  Buying a FA31 was the closest, although a new DA28 PLM WR Ltd ...
  • Replied in Are we cheap?
    K-3 or K-3ii? Thanks, Doug
  • Replied in ISO 850K
    "less noise" or "more noise" per pixel?  Your sentence says that the K-3 is better both at the per pixel and equivalent resolution per image basis...  or am I missing your point? Doug
  • Replied in Are we cheap?
    I have been waiting for years for Pentax to recreate the M135/f4 as a DA Ltd lens (might as well add rounded apertures, HD, WR & PLM).  Of course it would not be as small as the DA70 Ltd which I ...
  • I do not have anything quantitative, but in the ISO 1600-12,400 range I would put my KP at least a stop better than my K-3.  Again, nothing scientific, just my impression. Doug
  • Replied in KP Grip Cost
    I bought my KP from Camera Canada and it came with 3 grips. Doug
  • Replied in Ireland trip
    Cliffs of Moher, O'Brien Tower.  Know it ;-)  Nice shots! Doug
  • Replied in FA 77 Ltd.
    I believe so, however I don't use in-camera corrections. Doug
  • Replied in FA 77 Ltd.
    What is your intended use? I find the Photozone reviews of the FA77 and DA70 consistent with my experience (I understand that you are looking a FF, but I am just doing a relative comparison). The ...
  • Ya, I can do that.  I was not expecting exposure difference when I did the tests.  Next time. Doug
  • OK some test shots comparing K-3 vs KP.  All shots taken with FA31.  I shot RAW with no in-camera corrections.  Processed in LR using embedded colour profile, lens profile correction turned on. ...
  • Great photo, I think I know exactly where you are.  But... uhmm... CP not CN ;-)  I think that they are still different! Doug
  • It started with Neal who got a K1000 as a graduation gift.  Then I bought one, and started collecting lenses.  Bought the *istD to make use of my lenses.  Phil started with the K10D + 16-50 + ...
  • To say the review is unfair is a bit... unfair.  He touched on a lot of positives.  As for the negatives I agree with some but disagree on others.  Subjective. Grips - I am happy with the grips, I ...
  • Actually by design and features, I would say the K-70 is the K-S3. Pentax is crowded in this range with the K-S2, K-70 and KP all currently available. Doug
  • I managed to disable the status screen.  Just don't ask me how unless I have my camera in front of me!  Which I don't... Doug
  • Hi, for those asking specific tests, I probably won't get to them until the weekend.  Patience... ;-) Doug
  • Created discussion thread KP First Impressions
    Intro... So my KP arrived last Wednesday. I spent the weekend at a cottage (-26C) with some friends. Three out of five of us are Pentaxians, with common experience with K-5 & K-01. You can see my ...
  • FWIW, I wholeheartedly agree.  I bought the KP (ya, pricey) and the battery is currently charging. When I read the specs I never saw it as a replacement for my K-3.  It is a different camera, some ...
