  • Nice images IMO the da*55  offers a world of awesomeness, the many minor advances over the FA50 1.4 are major when added together. It is the best general purpose IQ lens in the 40-60 range A good ...
  • All 'brand fit' flashes are locked to the brand there designed for Every manufacturer has implemented pre flash ttl (the current favoured auto flash method) differently using different timings and ...
  • The converter design de-couples the lens from the body AF adjust and all KaF2/3 protocols rely on lens data so you not only lose AF adjust but also P-ttl,CA corretction  etc etc The fix is don't ...
  • Ever get that Friday feeling .???? The guy putting your camera together did :D Guess you got the Lemon in the crate of oranges :(
  • Nice images and good use of the Narrow DoF Wish I could get the enjoyment out of them that many obviously do given the market rate for both new and 2nd hand 50/55 1.2 glass. To me they all appear ...
  • Given the age and photo count Most likely the mirror box is either badly worn or going out of calibration If it worth it to you a full (Pentax approved) service should rectify. The other ...
  • What a treat that was I used a 2GB no-name microdrive used as photo backup (sd to CF device) for k10d till it failed with nearly 900 Florida holidays snaps on :( Stripped it down and with judicious ...
  • Replied in Prove me wrong
    Proving you wrong is not difficult as it appears you haven't a clue what your talking about. If you had you would have been using the acronym emmc as this is the memory used in emmbedded system's I ...
  • Well that was long Alex The whole op's premise is nonsense there is no such thing as static internal disk and they certainly were never used in phones. The closest is the micro drives used in early ...
  • Your soaking up the 'reviewers' naivety always a problem when the reviewer don't do their homework or address context. The K70 as Ab Jim explains performs the same as the K50 in CD (i,e with the ...
  • Thanks for clarifying What was the speed of the hybrid AF like ?
  • Given its dependant on a PD pixels on the sensor not only is it not easy it's impossible.!! As for ground breaking no it's not , having been seen in many Milcs and some DSLR's from other ...
  • I wans't asking that !! the AF system allows you to select which AF point you use . As your trying to compare two images its critical you know what you were focusing on else how do you know whats ...
  • I think you didn't say which 'pixel' you had active or for AF-s what sensor you had selected This makes it impossible to assess the  images as we have no idea what should be the sharpest part of ...
  • correct your not Well here is a clue 'Pentax Dlsr Talk' - not photo talk not gallery but Gear Talk !!! It always was, this is primary a 'technology forum' Really the fact this technology forum puts ...
  • Nice sequence But your confusing some terms here Your showing the cameras ability to keep focus lock - I don't believe anyone inc dpreview has said it can't, in fact Rish pointed out that under the ...
  • What a load of nonsense With the da21 da35 da35 limited da40 da50 and DA*55 Your whole point of focal length starvation required 3 new prime is in your imagination. The da20-40 was not designed as ...
  • you forgot the da*55 as the last of the 4 da designated lens that are 100% k-1 FF compatible
  • Well that woudl certainly make more sense I was basing it had a screw of the rioch release 1 Lead Screw 2 PLM (Pulse Motor) 3 Focus Lens Seemed pretty certain it had a lead screw to me but maybe ...
  • Someone should tell the Q series that 😂 What really increases bulk is the mirrors , you'll find the k-1 has a unique cantilever to reduce depth The bigger the sensor the larder the mirror the ...
