  • This brings another question - Why did Pentax choose DC for the 70-200mm F2.8 Lens? It is able to handle heavy elements relatively well. It may not have the same torque as ring type motor (the new ...
  • Thanks Rishi. I see your comments in the forum thread.

    Do you think it is also good to put the same comments or references to the thread here (since you made the updates there)? The reason why I...

  • I see that Ian is making further updates and retracted the updates (the updates that he made after chatting with Rishi). Let us wait for his final response/results.

    One thing to note here is -...

  • "Rishi was talking about "star eater on steroids", without taking any astrophoto image with the K-1 II. Those people say there's no such issue. Even "the problem" is not something they detected,...

  • I completely agree with you. A low-cost wide angle zoom (16-35 or 17-35 to reduce cost) is needed at the wide end. A 24-85mm F3.5-4.5 or 24-70mm F4 is also good. Since the 70-200mm F4 is already ...
  • Now on my experience and camera usage - I currently own two camera systems clearly understands the strengths and weaknesses of the two systems (Sony and Pentax). I use some of the high-end lenses...

  • @DPTHOUGHTS - Sorry to ask you this . Have you even used any Pentax cameras or lenses? Did you ever hold lenses like Pentax D-FA 70-200mm or any recent cameras K1 or K1 Mark II or even the APS-C...

    They used to have showroom in Edison, NJ (near Raritan Center) and had some helpful sales people. They used to carry all major brands as well. I bought a few cameras and lenses (Pentax K20D, K-5 ...
  • Nothing is free :) .. Site visits, ad revenues, everything counted. It is an advertising platform for the large business - Yes, there is nothing wrong in that. I just want to point out this is NOT ...
  • dpthoughts - Sorry to ask you this bluntly - Have you ever used Pentax 70-200 D-FA 70-200 F2.8 lens or even held it in your hands? What about the 70-200 F2.8 lenses from other manufacturers (Sony,...

  • Before making the statement that all Pentax top tier lenses have SDM failures, please be aware of the following:

    1) Pentax D-FA 70-200 F2.8 is NOT an SDM lens. It is a DC lens. None of those DC...

  • Replied in confessed now
    I am not sure about the ‘better late than never’ comment. Even later part of the comments section I have seen replies that are not so nice. “If Pentax users have to wait for future lenses to get ...
  • As I mentioned in an earlier response, when was the last time did you see any such reviewers coming back and admit mistakes? Even if they are ready to do that (in their heart), the commercial ...
  • Does this mean the files are the same and everything is same as it is, no changes.. If yes, why these various posts?

    This is from a European site who received the K-1 Mark II in March (it started...

  • I do not expect such steps from DPReview. How many times you have seen a reviewer coming back and saying there were some mistakes in the tests and change the review score?? I bet less than 0.1% ...
  • @DPREVIEW Team - Was it firmware v1.0 when you tested the camera? Almost all of us have firmware 1.01 when we received the camera and I have received the camera on April 12 (I think Pentax started...

  • My Pentax K-1 Mark II came with Firmware 1.01. I pre-ordered the camera and got it in the first week of U.S release. I do not know whether Pentax released the camera with Firmware 1.00. Also, I do...

  • Replied in Still alive!
    Lenses are usually made in batches. It is my understanding that a new batch of Pentax FA Limited waere made in  2017 or Jan 2018.
