  • I do not envy your having a K-1, Arijit, because I have one myself. But I do envy your having such a wonderful garden... Lovely pics, as usual from you. :-) Kjell
  • You can always apply for the job as CEO for Ricoh Imaging, or why not for the entire company? Myself I'll be out taking pictures with my K-1, and possibly buy a new lens when one is released, if it ...
  • Aaaah – roses! Makes life worth living. Lovely flowers, lovely pictures. Thanks for posting,, Valeriu. Kjell
  • I have a Pentax K-1. It gives me joy. It fits the lenses I have. It gives me a lot better IQ than Cartier-Bresson could dream of. It doesn't make me a better photographer, but it takes the best ...
  • My advice would be to contact the publisher, I'd guess that they are not dishonest and when alerted to a copyright infringe will apologize and pay a fair renumeration. I have been published in a ...
  • I had the FA 28mm, and sold it. It was remarkambly soft wide open, had to be stopped down to 5.6 or smaller to get sharp. My copy couldn't be compared to the FA 35mm, with which I'll never part. Kjell
  • I think he directs a choir! Kjell
  • Replied in Thirst...
    Wonderful! Here at home me and my wife have a little private zoo with cats, a dog, a number of parrots and a lot of wildlife just the other side of the fence. I am ever so fascinated by the ...
  • And, of course, chess! For professional chess shooting, Pentax simply is "da thang". Kjell
  • My first camera was SLR look-alike with Minor Scout or Scout Minor in the name. Anyone knows more? It was a fixed aperture, fixed focus plastic lens element thingie which cost me around 2 USD. I...

  • Replied in New Pentax
    Don't give it away. I have one, and got a second one as part of a deal like you did. I was very well paid when I sold it. The one I've kept doesn't get very much use, since I have a good selection ...
  • Replied in Birds again...
    Lovely pictures of lovely birds, as usual from you Arijiit. The Flycatcher is my favourite, sooo cute. :-) Kjell
  • Regrets? Nope. There are things on the camera I don't use, like the third mode wheel. But nothing I'd like to have is missing. It is bigger and heavier than my K5, but still very pleasing to hold ...
  • Today, Lennart Nilsson passed away at 94 years of age. He became world famous in the sixties with his book "A child is born", and as some of the pictures were published in Life Magazine in it's ...
  • Phew! For a moment I was afraid you were about to damage your razor, but now I can rest assured you'll get a good shave tomorrow morning. Every night, as I take my sensor out to put it to bed, I ...
  • Replied in Fly inside
    Interesting catch in a doble sense! You know, you could have been a bit less honest and presented your shot as the ultimate proof that our planet is under attack by gigant flies from outer space. ;-) ...
  • Nice catches as usual, Arijit! It sets my imagination in motion, that all these birds might have come all the way from my country to your. Not likely, but possibly! Kjell
  • My experience is that wether older (film era) Pentax lenses deliver on full frame digital (K-1) varies, but that premium lenses stand up to their reputation. I have used the A* 85 mm f1.4, A*200mm ...
  • Noel! You have proven two things with your pictures. (1) The A* 200mm f2.8 is still a wonderful lens to be used on a digital full frame body. In spite of being manual focus, it's easy to focus spot on, ...
  • Check this: http://camerasize.com/compare/#188,659 The D300 is a bit bigger in spite of the K-1 being a full frame. According to the measurement the K-1 is thicker, but that is only because the ...
