  • I'm already saving money for it. Sure I'd also go for it if it came without internal GPS, but I would not buy an external GPS-unit. Internal GPS is very helpful on long hikes in remote regions for ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Donkeys at Refuge de la Valette
    It's an old one from 2013!
The donkeys supply the hut. Late in the day they were standing around doing nothing, as of parked like a car in the driveway.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Sayan, Valley of Volcanoes
    In the Sayan Mountains on a trekking tour in Siberia. The place is called "Valley of Volcanoes", a few fairly recent cinder cones having emitted a long lava flow.

  • I'm using the FA on my K-1. A bit soft at 2.8, but becomes very sharp when stopped down a little. Some purple fringing can be removed later. Optically this lens is not ideal, but it is very good. I ...
  • Replied in K1-III
    Yes. Keep the GPS!! My K-1 is still great for my needs, but it is now five years old. I'm looking forward for a replacement, for a K-1 III. An FF-equivalent to the sensor used in the new K-3 would ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Imilik Bight, Greenland
    Last year in August on a hiking tour.

  • Replied in Buying a K1
    I don't know what you are using now. I have no experience with other systems. I want a good image quality. Sure it makes sense to buy a K-1. I'm using one since 2016 and it still compares well to ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Devil's Table
    A rock called Devil's Table in the Palatian Forest in Germany. Sandstone.

  • My FA 135 looks very used, because it is one of my favourite lenses. Very sharp when stopped down. The purple fringing is easily dealt with in LR. AF is fast, the design compact. I wish, Ricoh ...
  • I carried enough spares for the camera, which are easy to change. The phone is not designed for a quick/easy battery change. Lutz
  • Well, it certainly does. Still, apart from the fiddling around with the whole set-up compared to simple in-built GPS, the phone would have run out of battery power during my 8-day trip this summer. ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Tree on Reunion Island
    A tree on the island of Reunion located in the Indian Ocean. Photographed during descent from Piton de la Fournaise down to the coast. I'm not an expert and don't know the name of the tree.

  • If the accelerator improves IQ, and it seems like it does, I welcome it. And I couldn't care less about the age of a given sensor as long as it delivers like the one in my K-1 does. The announced ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Greenland, near Ilulissat
    The cemetery is close to the airport.
    Placed 31st in the challenge. The cemetery is close to the airport.
  • Yes, but no! You won't get the versatility one needs when hiking for more than a week in complete wilderness, where GPS-data are a welcome information. Both a GPS-module or a phone are too ...
  • The KP IMHO already leads the pack in terms of image quality, within APS-C. The higher ISO of K3 III suggests it will better the KP, and also what was hinted on IQ by the information from Ricoh ...
  • Well, a GPS is easier to add than a tilting screen. Every phone comes with a GPS these days, the K-3II has it. No button visible? Probably it is turned on/off via the touchscreen. This is my guess. ...
  • ...I thought. No more discussions about tilting screens. Any camera is a compromise and can't offer everything. I like the tilting screen on my K-1, but I use it not very often. I could also do ...
  • .... No money from my side! I very much like the K-1 and also like the design of the upcoming APS-C. Sure, a manual body would put a sudden end to the autofucus-bashing, but they would sell but a ...
