Benna78: Lenses...

16-35 f4, 24-105 (120) f4, fast primes (not third party), 70-200 f4, 70-300 f4-5.6 good quality. I'm referring to FF lenses for the K1, and redesigned for digital. Second hand market is surely vast for Pentax, but it's not enough.

Surely interesting. But I’m still waiting for a reasonably priced 35 f2 (AF).

Glad that the Sony FE family is expanding...but a 28-75 lens leaves me cold...

kobakokh: Can somebody say why Fuji's new A line is A5, after A3? And not A4? Can fuji guys say it?

In japanese number 4 pronunciation sounds like the word “death”. So it’s considered bad luck.

Couldn't they program the camera raw conversion algorithms in a normal software?

Guess they'll be affordable, light and small.

Benna78: I think, in the last 2-3 years, we reached a level with any camera/lens that can satisfy almost any photographer for many many years to come.
For the vast majority of us upgrade is GAS or consumism.

Sorry. Consumerism. I should have checked before typing.

ProfHankD: Interesting. Aside from low production costs in China, it's useful to note that China still allows most types of optical glass to be used. The EU has banned most because they are doped with heavy metals, which makes it much more difficult to make competitive optics. Basically, it's a lot like the hit taken when slightly radioactive dopants were banned, but MUCH worse. Here's a set of slides from folks who are trying to deal with these restrictions: http://www.ora-blogs.com/files/uk10_spie_thompson_lunch_talk_glass_selection-2.pdf

Anyway, these Chinese lenses are very good news for people who don't want to spend their time scanning eBay and cleaning fungus out of old lenses....

Very interesting, Thank you

(unknown member): How many years in jail did that worthless coward of a captain get for this destruction?

27 years were asked. He got 16 years plus 5 years of interdiction from any maritime activity. Considering he's 56 I guess his life at sea is over.

Benna78: Well,OK, in the end Trump made it. I'm italian, as you can easily see in my profile, and probably the most informed Americans, together with 99% of the europeans dpreview forum members, know that italian political scene has been ruled by Berlusconi in the last 20 years. We all agree that Italy surely has not the same weight as USA, but in the end we (Italians) survived. I guess USA will survive too, and our beloved world as well. I'm just trying not to taking it too seriously...ate enough sxxxt in the last 20 years.

Not exactly a "mafia lord"...he was (is) a billionaire businessman, just like Trump.
