Pentax XG-1 Review
The things I do with my camera are: 1. Take pictures of birds at my feeders The AF is not as fast as you'd like, but when you get results they are right up there with the best I shoot. So you ask yourself, can I do what I do with my K-3 Tamron 300 2.8 and 1.7 TC combo, the answer is y...

Pentax K200D Review
I recently acquired this camera and although it's an older model, it still has a lot to offer. It offers most of the advanced features of my K10D in a package weighs almost half a pound less. Its user interface is somewhat simplified, compared to my K10D or GX-20, but not quite as dumbed down as my ...

Pentax KP Review
This is the camera for which I have waited. I cannot identify any relevant faults. I would have opted for the 190 battery, pushing the grip out to the S limit with the M grip included as standard, but I have big hands. I appreciate that there are many users preferring the S grip or no grip that deci...

Pentax Spotmatic F Review
I bought this at auction 3 years ago and have used it regularly since. Of the 3 Spotmatics I have (SPF, SPII and ESII) this is the preferred body to use due to it's fully mechanical shutter and open aperture metering. The SPF has one less step in taking a photo, which means more brain cells concen...

Pentax Spotmatic II Review
My father bought this SPII new in Singapore in 1972. He bough it with the S-M-C 55mm 1.8 and S-M-C 135mm f/3.5. I still have the receipt, booklets and advertising. He used it with slide film all through the 70's and 80's during our time in the Philippines and throughout Europe and Australia. He t...

Pentax ES II Review
I am reviewing this ESII based on the 3 years that I owned it and enjoyed using it. Sadly, it suddenly developed a few faults which either cannot be fixed or are too expensive based on advice from a US repairer and an Australian repairer. The end result is that the batteries continually drain and ...
