It may well be, but the pictures loaded so slowly that I didn't bother.

How about a warning about slow site and large files?

Maybe the poster has a slow connection as well and he is in Siberia.



Thanks anyway for the warning of the large files but for me the wait was worth it


Cheers

I want this lens to be awesome, but those samples just don't tell me anything.

(patiently waiting for more and better samples)

Actually Pentax will raise the price for FA lenses staring February. Including FA 50/1.4
Glad I bought the FA50 just before X'mas

As for the DA*55, I'll just wait and see

Why would the price of FAs go up in Feb.? If this is true I have about a week to make a decision on the 50 1.4, because as much as I would live the 55, I will not have that kinda cash for a while.

Adorama has it listed for pre-order.

It could be worse- have you guys heard what Nikon did to all their prices? Hiked prices and cancelled all back-orders, causing people to re-order for the higher price.

Odd you mention that lens. I for one am very happy about my SMCP A 50/1.2. Admittedly, I had to buy Katz Eye focusing screen for my K10D, but it was worth all the while.
lol... I'm right there with you. I just stocked up on manual fast 50s... and a katzeye screen to make them pleasurable. I don't know it I'll want this anytime soon now.

I live in Norway, not as cold as Siberia, does Norway count?

I retried and now they load reasonably fast. So I guess the server had a overload, I was a bit grumpy too. Wasn't in the mood for waiting.

Anyway. I think it is a good idea to warn about larger files. Just to make grumpy people happy

I'm sorry, but the files are not large, not above 500 kB.
