  • Replied in Price?
    Not only the missing modern lenses. Years ago, I selected Pentax because they just seemed able to make the very same gear, but smaller and lighter than the competition. An MZ5, *istD, K100 or even ...
  • Have you used either A9 or D5? I have a D5 and was lucky to be able to test a A9 on two events, Nikon D5 with AFS 70-200/2.8E and Sony A9 with 70-200/2.8. The Sony A9 is for sure a very nice ...
  • It seems pretty logical... between April-June 2016, Ricoh released the K-1, the 24-70/2.8 as well as the 70-200/2.8. While as this year, Ricoh just managed to bring out the KP and that's pretty ...
  • Very nice photos, Larry. I had the DA 12-24, unfortunately, a trip in the Kalahari desert was too much dust for a not weather sealed lens. As wide angle prime on Nikon, I am using the Sigma 20/1.4 ...
  • No, the goal in a declining market is to lower the manufacturing costs, getting rid of the mirror and pentaxprism is a major cost saving measure. All mirrorless manufacturers coming to my mind have ...
  • The amorphous sacks of potatoes have however the advantage over the K-1 that if one presses the shutter, a photo is taken, while I am still locking up the K-1 for 10-20 seconds on a regular basis. ...
  • How many more threads with the very same topic do you want to open? If you really want a mirrorless camera, why not go out and buy one? Mirrorless cameras are currently available right from the ...
  • The K-1 is not a camera I am using for sport events anyway. I try to avoid using burst shooting modes, even when shooting sports with a D5. When I shoot series, the photo I want is in general ...
  • Thank you Roland for these explanations, that's definitely another issue than the one I reported. I have never run into this problem, neither on the K-1 nor D810, at least not with Extreme Pro SD ...
  • It has been a while since my last visit here. What is this issue you are referring to? Might it be the issue I reported already a year ago?
  • Created discussion thread Just a few flowers
    Hi Here are just a few flowers photographed yesterday with the K-1 and Zeiss 100/2 ZK 1 2
  • I had all three lenses over the past years. Yes, the Sigma 10-20/4.5-5.6 is really the weakest in terms of IQ among the three. I replaced it later with the Sigma 8-16, an amazing UWA zoom lens. The ...
  • Speaking on miss informed, both lenses you mention are on Sigma's list of discontinued lenses: https://www.sigmaphoto.com/lenses/lens-resources/lens-chart-for-recently-discontinued-lenses
  • K10, K20, K7, K5, K3 did not allow the user to delete photos while the buffer is not empty. Tell me, what is the benefit for the K-1 to let a user perform an operation the hardware of the camera ...
  • The D810 simply does not lock up and remains available and reactive all the time. But if I have to shoot sports or any event in very low light, I take the D5. The K-1 is for sure not an alternative ...
  • 1. Being unable to delete pictures while the buffer is clearing, that's not the issue, that's exactly the behavior of a K-5, K-3 or even 645z. The issue is that such an attempt locks up the K-1. 2. ...
  • The problem is I optimized over years a workflow to gain valuable review/postprocessing time when having to work on very tight schedule. I don't even think about it, if nothing happens on stage, ...
  • Is it too much to ask from a camera to take a photo when pressing the shutter? If the manufacturer is aware that the hardware is unable to cope with two operations at the same time, why not prevent ...
  • The reason for deleting the photos right on location is not to save memory card space, but to save time when working on very tight schedules. A photo which is not on the card takes no time to get ...
  • I shoot RAW only, and only to one single card. There are for sure solutions even if the hardware is unable to write and delete simultaneously, either by preventing the user from deleting photos ...
