  • Whist I'd object to the term fanboy being a "Pentax Patriot" sounds pretty cool :D Almost an American missile !!!
  • yep you can see the micro blur on the pan/lower shutter speed shots. that means to me that the camera lens combo is really nailing focus  as to ba able to see the difference between 1/800 vs ...
  • Be interesting how these DNR results were collated if like Dxo They are equalised at some nominal resolution's (8mpix in the case of DXO) then the results are as I'd expect. If they are 1:1 i.e ...
  • the k1 has nearly identical pixel size to k5 so at sensor level certainly wont outperform it. but it will deliver the same noise per pixel @36Mp vs 16 and also have 2.2X less enlargement for the ...
  • I think the issue was/is the aperture lever. Pentax was/is the only mount with a mechanical aperture this means mount tooling is unique and hence expensive to support. in addition this prevents ...
  • My opinions :) the M40 is a lens poorly conceived and not very well implemented delivering poor sharpness and very soft borders wide open. Cheap to buy but still a waste of money. the fa43 is ...
  • My da40 limited suffered it, on strip down the felt pad had dust and moisture that has turned to a tar type sludge this increased the damping to what would be better describe as seized. resolution ...
  • Sounds like the focus damper (felt pad used to give a smooth focusing experience) is contaminated. Try a screwdriver in the slot and see just how stiff it is compared to a screw drive lens without ...
  • Think you need to decide your priorities here you states you don't want to spend $550 and you don't want to change lens but your current lens selections indicate IQ is important as well ? why dont ...
  • Guessing - I think they are pointing out that the new accelerator is a pre raw feature so re-processing raws in camera will not deliver K1ii noise profiles. Of cause they may have disabled k1 raw ...
  • I believe Canon has always cooked their ISO's for max review credit on noise. Last time looked Canon iso 100 = iso 125 for Nikon and Pentax and the gap increases logrithmically so by is6400 the ...
  • Thats when the 2nd optical group starts to move so your moving more weight hence the feeling totally normal and as designed.
  • but what advantage does 5 axis bring besides increased stops .? I cant think of any feature/functionality increase 3 > 5 Axis
  • Think rotational SR was around k7/k5 from k5 think only advances have been in stops to SR not functionality, Though thing like pixel shift (tripod) use the SR for non-SR feature.
  • Replied in Bye bye
    I'd also point out having 300 or 3 million images uploaded to a free upload site is not equivalent to 1 National Geographic re-print or even one of the more discerning web galleries. I take the ...
  • Replied in Bye bye
    Not sure this is the best place for me to discuss this but found it interesting anyway. Had some studio work done the other week was chatting to the Photog and examining output etc. Equipment ...
  • Hi Batdude, I camera is a tool with many complex parts, If the tool doesn't fit you then changing it si the smart move. The only issue I see is if you try all the 'tools' and nothing fits then you ...
  • Nice shots #2 for me the drip of water off the beak and pinprick iris really shows off the birds character.
  • Don;t mean to be overly critical but 1 nothing sharp 2 the in-focus areas appear to have an astigmatism 3 the bokeh is hideous 4 I suspect the reason there not sharp is they dont focus white light ...
  • The Bigma pre-OS should work fine on your k-70. The normal reason for dodgy focusing is failed collimation the symptom would be weird Bokeh! Most likely reason for the lens no longer being ...
