  • Commented on Pentax K-5 II and K-5 II S preview

    Even now this camera is amazing. I have a K-3 too and the K-5 IIs still gets regular use. It has been the most faithful and reliable Pentax I've had over the years. It's IQ has never let me down...

  • I looked at the Reichmann review and I was actually impressed. High ISO looks a good stop better than my k-5 iis even, which for me was the lowlight king of aps-c. Coming from a 24mp k-3 I can say...

  • Pentax raw files are dng if you want them to be. Its just a container. There isn't any difference for me in using Pentax raw or dng. It's possible the conversion in software is doing something to...

  • Coatings don't increase resolution, but they increase transmission. Sure zooms can be prime sharp at their optimal focal lengths. That's a product of design not coatings.

  • I don't think I'll be parting with my k-5 IIs anytime soon even with a K-3. The sony 16mp sensor really hit the sweet spot in terms of performance on aps-c.

  • These comments are hilarious. Who cares about DR?? Wow. DR is perhaps the most important metric. 12 stops is really only one stop better than slide film. I can push my files from the k5 I and IIs...

  • Commented on 12_ISO3200_P1000233 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Panny has the worst colors. Noisy sensors, bad color, aggresive nr, useless JPEGs. No thanks. Wake me when they get it right.

  • The K-3 has flaws? Outside of some questionable design with regard to video, its pretty hard to fault the k-3.

  • It will never happen. The heart of the GR is 28mm.

  • Commented on Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article

    "The K-S1's closest competitors are the Canon SL1 (EOS 100D) and Nikon D3300, both of which have lower MSRPs (not to mention street prices) and are equally capable"

    Wow. I guess less fps, less...

  • I'm usually not one to nitpick on colors from the JPEG engine, but hey JPEG is useful in a lot of situations and these colors, skin tones, and WB are all seriously weak sauce. The ACR conversions...

  • Pretty sure that the 2k is range and not altitude. AFAIK, anything under 1000ft is mostly legal.

  • that's racist!

  • I don't think you understand how light field cameras work.You take a sensor and then use microlenses to capture different points of focus. In this case they are using roughly 10 pixels to capture...

  • Amen!!!
