  • There are several places you can turn for a screen. I am cheap, so I am usually getting a no name screen from like eBay. I like a 180-degree split prism, and since I sold my K5IIs with it, I have ...
  • Looking at the tape measurer and tape in the middle, I can see a crispness in Pixel Shift one. If I could trade my K3 + $200 to get the K3II, I would consider it.
  • Replied in My fear
    Other than another comment that was listed earlier about delays, and my own fear of any new Pentax where they are initially priced too high for the market, my biggest fear is a ho-hum approach to ...
  • I am sorry Tatouzou, but you are being overly cautious if you think a focusing screen should only be changed at a repair station. While not being the most simple of processes, changing the focusing ...
  • Wasabi, Watson - both good. The big thing is to watch where you are buying it from. I went on Amazon looking to buy an OEM battery, as I just feel my Pentax battery lasts a little longer. The one ...
  • Replied in Shooting manual
    So, I acknowledge I did not read through the thread, so if any of this was covered, I apologies for being redundant. So, shooting with a manual lens can be frustrating with a DSLR, especially if ...
  • Precision is an awful firm, and the best thing Ricoh could do is find another firm to handle its repairs. I went back and forth with Precision for months on a communications issue between my 16-50 ...
  • Replied in Two NRs
    Now some people have attempted pixel shift while hand-holding their cameras - this length of time would probably be a mistake, but maybe bump the ISO higher to cut the shutter time. 1600 ISO with ...
  • Replied in Two NRs
    I concur that it is likely a combination of Auto NR and long exposure. In the K3 line, Ricoh bumped up the NR levels then what we saw in the K5 and earlier lines (one of the things I loved was ...
  • Big-a** lens and its only 2.8-4f? This makes Nikon look like the kings on miniaturization by comparison.

  • The only way this beats the 645 is the fact it shoots 4K. Ricoh comes out with a 645 with 4K capabilities, and along with the A7 line from Sony, the reason for this is?

  • Gosh, the lens lineup seems like a fail to me. Two standard-ish zooms, but neither is 2.8 throughout. I get it for the 90-280, given the range, but the 24-90 seems like a mistake. Aren't Leica...

  • What was the lens you used with the K3? Did you have any other lenses to test with it, even the 50 1.8 or 35 2.4? Just curious as you were specific with the Sony lenses, but only said it was a 2.8...

  • I switch lenses all the time, and with my setup, I can put the camera back in, whether its wearing the 16-50 or the 70-200. The key is setting up the internal dividers, at least in my case. On the ...
  • I have to disagree with you about bag design - I find the holster/sling bags much easier to access than the older traditional bag design. I think the problem you may be having is that the bag is ...
