  • I have never understood "pro" support. Have spare gear.

  • Wow, when Retro goes bad. Gold plated camera bodies (Canon, Nikon, Pentax and others made them in the 80s), something I never wanted to see, ever. They were poor taste in 1980 and they are still...

  • Exactly. Both Canon and Nikon sell premium 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 class lenses, and many Pentax users have been complaining they don't have one of those. Now they do and they are still complaining. ...

  • It is for wedding shooters, very important focal length. I can't give up 50mm wide end for indoors shooting. There is a reason the 70-200mm is so popular on full frame and why they don't make...
