  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    That's funny because I find no joy really in using Canon gear. I just never really liked their gestalt. The Pentax K-3 and K-5 IIs though just fit like a glove. The have great ergonomics that are a...

  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    These comments are truly hilarious! My K-3 has stepped flare patterns too. The only time I ever noticed it was in shots already ruined by veiling flare much like all the examples I've seen of the...

  • No. Its not.

  • Furthermore why even bash pentax for producing an entry level body (which I must add blows all the other entry level DSLRs out of the water) and then mention the X-A1 at the same time?...

  • This is hilarious! Its a freaking kit lens! Who cares if its constant f8? It might as well be! If it has high resolving power stopped down it would be still useful for many things. The old 18-55...

  • @marc petzold: ok cite one example where I am trolling on dpreview. yeah, that's what I thought. but sure lets have a 60+ comment thread about how ricoh is burning its users over a 1/3 stop on a...

  • Your trolling is a joke. Period.

  • 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...
