On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (146 comments in total)
In reply to:

starwolfy: I hear many positive things about this strap but make sure to check it before you go to avoid this :

This kind of issue is what is preventing me to buy one for my 7000 euros Leica Sl (without lens). Not too hot on the idea of dropping this because of a thin string.

I'll second what FantasticMrFox said. My clip works flawlessly (and I've been using it big time during my trips to Cambodia, Vietnam and the Phillippines, and on many other occasions), and is possibly the most useful accessoire I ever bought for my camera.

I've been waiting for this for ages! It's just so much easier to read now, thank you!

The real reason for the purchasing "restriction" is probably that they are making this camera to order. There's no point in producing 1000 units and then shipping them out to dealers.

The Nikon D4s and Canon EOS 1D X are "purposely excluded" because they are "in a class of their own", but the Pentax 645Z is evaluated with the bunch? Strange things happen around here ...

By the same logic you could take a pictures of Times Square a minute, or every 10 seconds, and each and every one will be "original" because there's different people in it (or at least in different positions), other ads, other litter ... NOT.

On article Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II (534 comments in total)
In reply to:

Hugo808: I had a go on a Pentax in a shop and it had really noisy autofocus. That was the end of it for me, but are all their lenses missing the ultrasonics of the competition?

No. The standard 18-55mm kit lens has a screwdrive AF which is a bit noisy, plus the "limited" primes. Look for the DC or SWD label on their lenses, they are quiet focusing, e.g. the 18-135mm or 16-85mm lenses.

wildkat2: Dollar to a doughnut the two wide end zooms are actually rebadged Tokina lenses. The DA is likely the Tokina 12-28 f/4 and the D-FA is likely the Tokina 16-28 f/2.8

And you know this because ... ?

In reply to:

Peiasdf: There is a lot of repetition in Pentax's line up. There are 11 primes covering the 30-55mm range, 6 standard zooms from 16mm-50/85/135, etc. I'd imagine Nikon and Canon might be the same but either company sold ten times more cameras than Pentax.

One man's "repetition" is another man's "product differentiation". Where's the problem with having specialized primes in all price ranges and for different formats?

On article Sigma goes wide with 24mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens (183 comments in total)
In reply to:

nowo1978: Here's hoping Sigma will produce a PK mount version of this lens.

nicolaie, it makes a lot of sense. Not just considering the upcoming Pentax FF camera, but also on APS-C, for example for star trail/astro photography where a combination of wide angle and large aperture is king, especially since there's no competition for PK mount (there's a Samyang/Walimex 24mm 1.4, but it does not AF).

Ricoh-Pentax should learn a lesson from Fuji! Top-notch cameras but where's the tethering software for the K-3?

This is a joke, right? The honorable mention goes to the Sony camera you haven't even finished testing and not the Pentax K-3?

Here's waiting for the first optical tests - if this lens delivers the goods the price tag suggests, it might be a perfect complement to a K-3.

WACONimages: Dear Dpreview,

Why, oh why do we always have to click and click before we can read the article or/and review!!??? You read news on the front-page and think, well I'm interested to read this and give it a click! A new page opens and surprise the same announcement as on the front-page shows up! and only after another click you get to the article.

Is it just me who isn't funned of this... I know it is just another click, but don't see why this is needed?

Motion seconded!

fed2man: When is Windows going to support DNG files? In Explorer in Windows 7 all my DNGs show up as icons only, no thumbnails. Or have I missed an update somewhere? Thx.

A quick google search for "windows 7 dng support" would have pointed you to Adobe's DNG Codec: http://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/dng/win/DNGCodec_2_0_Installer.exe.

You're welcome.

skyfotos: Bear in mind:
This is a primarily a viewfinder “street camera”.
As such it will very seldom used to photograph burnt out highlights.
Low light wide aperture street photographs will use a higher ISO and background out of focus orbed highlights will consequently be ameliorated.
The essence of the subject matter will never be subservient to background highlights –“orbed” or otherwise.
Scene and landscape photographers should use another camera if orbs offend them and should leave street photographers to enjoy the fantastic X10!

Bear in mind:
This is not a "street photography only" camera, people can use it for whatever style of photography they enjoy, even landscapes and whatnot. If you're happy with your defective piece of equipment, rejoice. Others are not, and rightfully so. If it's defective, it's defective, and for the price tag buyers can expect to use the camera for whatever they want to capture.
