and a few other things added a week or so ago.

----- Not everything that counts can be counted - Albert Einstein

------ Interesting Tidbits Department of Tidbits

"Q: Klaus, why do you consider the K-5 to be superior to the D7000? Other than a couple of extra fps and the in-body IS, it seems to be on-par with the Nikon or even trailing (AF points, metering), while costing $400 more.

A: It's smaller & more rugged. Body-side IS as you mentioned. And more important than anything else - Pentax has a complete dedicated APS-C lens lineup. Nikon has merely isolated solutions here specifically regarding primes."

"I think there's absolutely no doubt that Pentax has, by far, the best APS-C lineup out there. It's not even a close call. Full format lenses on APS-C DSLRs are always a compromise - at least in terms of size/weight."

"Well, I think this one is fairly obvious. Pentax is basically the only manufacturer offering APS-C pancakes. If you want to stay small with primes there's no way around Pentax. The Pentax 60-250 is also unique. There're more. This is basically the advantage of a dedicated APS-C lineup and not some sort of mix."

"The D7000 has "magnesium-alloy top and rear cover". The K-5/7 has also front and bottom plates made of metal. It is also likely that it has more seals.
The K-5/7 is a D300 class body, the D7000 is an upgraded D90 or downgraded D300, whatever you wish."

"Anyway, technically the K-5 seems to be the best new APS-C DSLR of the season. It seems superior to the 60D/D7000/A55/E5 to me at least."

Jewel for the record: DPR & DA 35 f2.4 AL

Curious, DPreview calls the new Pentax lens "the jewel-like SMC DA 35mm F/2.4"
Umm, they must like it?

Must be one pretty little lens.

In the interest of fair and accurate reporting

DPreview said about Pentax at Photokina "but also on show are two very interesting new lenses - the jewel-like SMC DA 35mm F/2.4 and the versatile SMC DA 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 AL DC WR.

Hey Sunny that's a huge link collection, thanks for the hard work.

Here's some more soviet stuff, a PK-mount camera + lenses: Soviet and Russian Cameras - Almaz-103
This camera was supposed to be 'highend'. I only have the 1.8/50 lens, which has sophisticated coatings and is all around excellent.



More PK soviet stuff here: Rare soviet lens(PK-bayonet) list 17.01.2010 (your contribution appreciated).

New additions to the listing today!

Ozzie Spanner crab fisherman Richard Freeman - way out there off the coast - 60 km - his k20 has been trusty, if not gittin' a bit rusty by now.

Have you your own friendly dolphin tagging along off the coast of Australia? http://bit.ly/gzUowp
