Are you using the Live View? I can see why if you are using Live View with the mirror in up position. Just the shutter without the mirror flap would be very quiet indeed. But if you are using the usual optical viewfinder, then Pentax must have upgraded the mirror box in a big way.

Didn't go near live view for the session...

Do they make pink ones? I know someone who'd get one like a shot if they did. As Pentax are a "cult" (that's not the word I want but can't think of the right one just now) I think they could branch out a bit with their cult status and do different stuff like that, maybe with their entry level ones anyway, and it would be a big hit.

I look foreward to the 35mm macro. Hope it has a focus limiter. Earlier i used the 60mm Nikkor. Then the new 50mm Pentax Macro (the best), and now hoping for the 35mm Macro to be evne better. Seems inpossible though. I need extra DOF.

But will the best lens out -resolve an 14mp sensor at 100 ISO. DRvise also?
Or what?

Or is the reason for 645D high 40MP actually due to lenses. Or glass?

repeat question....sorry

Hey Ben,

I asked this in your "new toy" thread, but it looks like this is the proper "ask me a question" series. Is CA/purple fringing (or lack thereof) less with this camera, such as from the DA* 16-50 at 16mm, f2.8? Thanks for the info!

John

As you know, I make part of my living as a Pro Photographer and the other part as a Consulting Creative Director. If Pentax wasn't up to the quality I expect, I would use another brand...Period.

I am being published in the most prestigious cutting edge "Trendy Press" and with the K10D..The new K--D is a major step up the ladder in quality and finesse.

How about understating...I am using my eyes. That is subjective. But after using Canon products for years, I feel I can make that statement with some authority.

Very quick AF using the Limited 35mm f2.8 macro I am playing with today.

Hi Richard;

I was in the same room as my girlfriend and there was some street noise, but not excessive and I took an image and asked.."did you hear that?" she said "heard what"..."the shutter"..."No didn't hear a thing"..It freaked me out when I started using it. I think it is as quiet or more so than the Canon 400D...

Oh..and built like a tank. Gorgeous ergonomy as expected a lovely black shutter release button and a ton of stuff that "SCREAMS" Professional DSLR.

Ben
Liar!



Cheers,
Cameron

As this is a pre-release issue, I must return it after the news conference. I will try to find the time to test it with my 16-50 tomorrow when I go to the conference.

Pardon???? Perhaps you should test it out for yourself when you have an opportunity to do so.

Your calling me a liar is behavior more akin to a Neanderthal stick swaggering moron with the IQ of a newt...

Don't waste my time here.

Unless you have a history with him , that was uncalled for.

He added a smiley face "" which means he was playing .

Ben,
Would you mind if I quote your first post on a flyfishing forum.

There was someone there asking about the Nikon D200 earlier today.

I'll PM you the link if you'd like to check it out first, but I don't think that they'd appreciate their bandwidth getting used up by Pentax Forums posters.

He was making a joke that you had a few posts talking about the camera, then you said you couldnt say anymore, and then you continued with another post about the camera.

Liar meaning you did say something more when u said you wouldnt.

I'll be traveling to England, France and then Spain for pleasure and photography. How badly will I need to bring this new camera and will it be available for me by May 1st?

I'll be shooting architecture and landscape almost exclusively. Also, will I need to rethink my lens choices at all? I only shoot wide to short telephoto. 50mm max
