DPReview: Have Your Say

DPReview has three polls for three categories.

Best prime lens of 2021 - Have your say: Vote now for best prime lens of 2021: Digital Photography Review

Best zoom lens of 2021 - Have your say: Vote now for best zoom lens of 2021: Digital Photography Review

Best camera of 2021 - Have your say: Vote now for best camera of 2021: Digital Photography Review

Pentax has a very good runner in each category, 21 Ltd, 16-50 PLM, and K-3iii

I don't have an account over there anymore (deleted years ago), but for those of you who may and are interested in voting, I thought I'd pass this along here.

If I had a say at DPR, half their staff would be gone.

Maybe we can start a poll at DPR with that suggestion

Once, a long time ago, DPR was THE site to go to for independent information, but unfortunately, that time is gone.

Is there room on the Internet for that kind of integrity?

Most people don't use "integrity" and "the internet" in the same sentence. It's the new home of hustlers, con artists and thieves, taking over from circuses and world fairs.

The cut off / close date is 19DEC2021 , well too soon.
I can not comment on something what is not even available in Australia yet.
Although there are few Pentax products and also some other interesting ( from my point of view ) items.
For example:
Nikon Zfc

Nikon Z DX 18-140

Nikon Z FX 28 SE

Sony
α7 IV
Tamron 18-300 ( for Fuji X )

Fuji XF 27 R WR

So, despite not having used any of the lenses listed, I voted. Here's my rationale:

- I enjoy camera gear, and have read at least a little something about most of the lenses.

- I'm not especially biased regarding one brand or another - I have respect and appreciation for all brands, and would not hesitate to leave my primary brand (Pentax) if I really wanted something from a different system - which occasionally gets me in trouble here.

- I considered the lenses this way: if I had a camera that had a universal mount, which lens would I most likely buy?

And for me, the answer is...
.
.
.
.
.
Pentax D FA 21/2.4 Limited

What sets the 21/2.4 Ltd apart from other lenses with similar specifications is the close-focus capability and lovely bokeh. It seems a unique offering and is exactly what I would want in a FF wide angle prime, and would also be a treat on APS-C.

The other contender for my affection is the Canon 600/4, but no way in H E double-hockey-sticks would I ever consider shelling out that kind of cash for photo gear.


As an aside, this year Ricoh has released two pieces of gear that have captivated me: the 21/2.4 Ltd, and the GR IIIx. Well done, Ricoh.

That kind of contest is absurd in its very foundation. Who has tested all the lenses from all the manufacturers? Who even knows them all? It's just a popularity contest.
