  • Replied in Two sides .
    So beautiful! At the same time it makes me feel a bit of sorrow. This hibiscus variety, the "Dainty Pink", is one of the two types i brought home as miniscular shoots from Nicaragua 1986. Even ...
  • Replied in correction
    And thanks to you for being wrong at the start! (Since I have the 100mm Macro but not the 55mm 1.4. :-D The pictures are very nice!) Kjell
  • I'd say the SMC F 70-210 f4-5.6 is one of the best price/performance lenses you can find on ebay or other 2:nd hand markets. It looks outright ugly when mounted on the camera, but it delivers! Just ...
  • A future for k-mount? Yes, definitely! On Sunday I'm going for a hike with my brother-in-law at a very scenic place. I'll sure bring my k-mount camera and lenses. Kjell
  • DSLR and mirrorless are both bound to die. "The Meteor" will come when a totally new technology becomes commercially viable. Something like focus-free lenses or a sensor type yet unknown outside ...
  • Ooops! Where I live people are a bit concerned about getting a fox in the orchard. When I hear that next time, I'll show them your pictures! Thanks for posting, a most... hmmm... interesting? ...
  • I've got an even more reliable source. More than seven years ago a guy who actually worked in a camera retail shop kindly informed me that Pentax had stopped making cameras altogether. After that ...
  • 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 ...
