Make sure to give it all 10s in the lens review section

(But seriously, C'mon people....is there no objectivity? A leica 35mm f1.4 summilux isn't even a perfect lens, yet in the lens reviews, if you give a pentax lens a 7, which should be a good score, it instead looks like you are crapping on it...ok end rant)

I didn't want to tell you, but I finally updated my sig right after reading the OP to reflect the prototype I've keepin under wraps. It's strange living with it, sort of like bunking next to a black whole... every time I take it out and use it I'm afraid the universe will collapse on itself.

In all seriousness though, a close friend of mine was killed by colour rendition, so this thread is a little too close to home. Please show some respect.

Some of the sharpness could be attributed to the image stabilization...or is this tripod mounted?

Couldn't agree more. I find the number system to be mere blind stupidity most the time. Especially when I read "That lens is a dog, it only rates an 8.52 in the reviews. Why would you buy such garbage?"

I figured I'd test it by submerging it in a large vat of diet Pepsi.
I won't be fully convinced until you submerge it in a vat of regular Coke. My sources on Facebook indicate that Coke is one of the most corrosive substances known to humankind. If it can survive Coke, it can survive anything.

I think I remember that PepsiCo sponsored a blind lens dunk test back in the 70s, but this was well before the Cola Resistant technologies that this lens employees. They could certainly stand to do it again.

If it were, the images would say Ricoh on the back. I turned my computer around and it says "lenovo", so no, I don't think if was a K-3

Not true. I turned my computer around, and I saw a white brightly lit Apple with a bite. So no, it wasn't shot by a Lenovo.

Photographer was probably biting an apple hence the camera shake. Definitely not a bacon though.

The retina slicing sharpness just cut off my, um, well, never mind.

OK, gotta head to the emergency room now.

The instagram crowd will love this lomo-ish effect.

Why not try this with your 18-135?

That settles it!

This is the next generation prototype K3! It's neither a Pentax nor a Ricoh! Not even a Lenovo, Apple or Asus.

Pentax engineers are the greatest!!!!
