  • Mmm Fact or fiction ? where did you get  500gram as that got nothing todo with the relative weight of focusing elements rather aperture and design (rear focusing) define torque required. Found your ...
  • Replied in Are we cheap?
    Do all Nikon screw drive have mechanical aperture ?? as Blackout period also effect AF-c badly
  • The same could and I sure was said for the K10/20 series, k200, Kx etc etc Even I guess the samsung sensor used in the k20 and K7 has people bowled over by its low Dynamic range and regretted the loss.
  • Why.? I own neither but besides a few non functional cosmetics the KP has the same or better functionality than the k70 across the board I couple a k70 advantages (I think) hdmi output / swivel LCD. ...
  • I think the k70 is possibly the end of the line . The KP is the natural successor as it drift down in price this will give space for a bottom model (ks series) so giving af-C bottom = Ks series Mid ...

    Mmm maybe you need to study what Pentax/Ricoh , Sony and Olympus have been doing ? Canon and Nikon had ring type high torque piezo driven AF pretty much sown up with Patents (lack patent granting ...
  • Along with auto distortion correction AF adjust relies on the camera identifying the lens To do this some pre-requisites are required 1 'A' mount lens - need digital lens ID 2 Unique Lens ID (some ...
  • Yes that would make sense.
  • Yes and this along with compatible PLM lens is the biggest AF-c gain a pentax camera can have (Inc KP). The faster Cpu and Co-pro of the KP is of no use if the camera is waiting for the lens to ...
  • Thanks for that Bkpix You've solved one of my Bubears :) I use RawTherapee/Gimp and PhotoPrint for my main processing but am continually frustrated with shotwell as my 'importer' often stalling and ...
  • Mmm strange The only Nickel Manganese I can find googling are on Ali express https://www.aliexpress.com/item/high-energy-battery-8-pieces-BTY-3000mah-nickel-manganese-AA-1-2v-rechargeable-battery-t ...
  • Agreed appears a synchronicity issue you can't delete I file from where it doesn't exist. As its being written from cache to storage how does the camera define what to delete - and if its multi ...
  • Replied in May be
    Agreed and ND filter on a very slow lens will quickly reduce available light past the roughly F12 equivalent Safox requires to focus.
  • What is NI-MN battery is it Nickel Manganese as I don't think such elements would produce a battery for retail use.?? As to Ni-cd If it can take NiMH (1.25) then it'll certainly work with NiCD ...
  • The statement I objected to was " no lens for sale in stores wider than 31mm" those lens I quoted are readily available for retail sale world wide in many stores. Sigma US may have stopped ...
  • Unfortunately your  miss informed, Sigma still have current production lens wider than 31mm and also have many more options in the retail chain from the pre A/C/S series. These are all AF and AE ...
  • Again your missing whats important to many photographers, these feature are cherry on the cake not basic functionality that people look for. We weren't discussing the KP as a challenge to the k1 we ...
  • There is certainly arguments for the k7 introducing the  unique body, if only they hadn't compromised on the 4 channel Samsung sensor. Probably the only time in Dslr history where the next ...
  • Your missing the point The K1 is irrelevant for my purposes and an Aps-c flagship could cost significantly more than it . Providing the price was justified for the feature set I'd still be in the ...
  • Even easier take 1 Pentax ibis body 1 Sigma OiS lens. Try tracking ibis on OiS off note tracking reliability and AF speed. Switch to OiS on Ibis off note no difference and continue giggling at ...
