  • Replied in Upgrade Advice
    Again to start standard 43/50mm lens and add to this a moderate 31/35mm wide angle lens assuming you are using FF K1. If you will need to shoot fast get two cameras one for each lens or a 28-70 ...

  • Replied in DA*55mm 1.4
    Well I vacillated with this lens for a long time owing to reviews. I am a very lucky boy. The auto focus is right on and did not require any camera (K5 II) adjustments whatsoever. Happy Holidays to all
  • Replied in K5 vs K5ii
    I was a K5 owner purchased it for $1600 from B&H when it was released. Magnificent camera with beautiful image quality at 80 ISO. Then came the K5 II and K5 II S. I had to decide which one to go ...
  • Created discussion thread DA*55mm 1.4
    I'm just about to push the 'add to cart ' button and take advantage of it's current reduced holiday price but...................... is the autofocus such an annoying  problem as reviews say ...
  • I used Pentax 6X7 for over 30 years as a commercial photographer. My first digital was Olympus E1 with Kodak 5mp CCD sensor so ditto on the 645.
  • Created discussion thread APS-C new flagship
    I use K5 II it all makes sense size wise. Why did the K3 have to grow and why do you all talk about the K3 III as a replacement, there never was a K5 III. Hopefully it will not grow yet again. ...
  • Created discussion thread K1 holiday discount offer
    Subtotal £1,999.99 Discount-£300.00 this is from the Ricoh UK web site. Will it happen here in the US ?
  • you will get a ton of replies.  The k5 II is the one to get. Don't look for the less expensive  one but look for one with a fairly low shutter count.
  • Replied in NEW a7II
    I should mention it was not an A9 it was the a900, I purchased it new (B&H) with the 24-70 2.8. I'm looking forward to getting back with Sony. I'm lusting after that 55mm and need a body for it.
  • Created question thread NEW a7II
    Thinking of getting a new (B&H) a7II with 55mm. My last Sony was the A9. Are there any serious downsides to this model? Someone said the battery needs to go to a museum!
  • Nice. How do you like the K1 with the 43mm. Does it do the K1 justice ?
  • would love to visit your Grandma. Where is this?
  • Nick Brandt Pentax 6X7 Standard 90mm lens, no long lens work. google away. Cheers

  • interesting light source
  • I grew up in post war London, grey and dismal. Your photos are sparkling like diamonds, wonderful. Don't be influenced to much as regards the tech stuff.
  • Don's worry to much your brain will overheat. Feel confident in The K1 and 70-200 that is the standard pro kit for that sort of thing. Don't bother at all with the other stuff other than flash. ...
