Thanks everyone. I will take a look at my insurance, but I think my policy has a high deductible.

Pentaxian on Hold - Camera Bag Stolen
Posted By Kenntak

Last month I was on a train near the Trastevere train station in Rome, Italy. Unfortunately, I got distracted and a couple of people grabbed my camera bag and ran. I could not catch them. Included in my bag were my K-30 and my beloved HD 35mm F2.8 Macro Limited lens. I am pretty sure those items will not turn up again. In any event, I put the serial number of the lens in the database. Still a Pentaxian even though I don't have a camera or any lenses. :(

In my mind, too many people are positing mediocre photos of their lives. Sorry, but a lot of it is just not interesting to most people--it becomes monotonous drivel. Anything can be overdone, and this often overdone. I know someone (she even claims to be a professional photographer) who regularly dumps dozens of photos on social media. How could one look back one day and enjoy those photos. It is difficult to go through so many now, I can't imagine doing it a couple of years from now. I think keeping those limited special photos is important, rather than having them lost in a sea of uninteresting excess.

That's good to hear, maybe it will do well with the K-1. It's a great lens.

Remember the thread stating that the camera needs to be priced at $1,800 or less to be a success, and most of us (including me) thought that would not be possible. Well, it is. :)

Leaving aside the OVF which I prefer, I don't care about a few grams or centimeters here and there. My Pentax camera feels better in my hand than the corresponding mirrorless cameras I demoed.

Apple has a great brick and mortar presence. The store near me is always packed with people buying things, and the products are available in a lot of other local stores. The reason is that one normally cannot get a better price online for their products--what you pay in the store is what you pay online typically. In addition, there are some items that are offered in stores only. I know that there are huge differences between Apple and Pentax, but some companies do things to protect local stores.

I am not sure what FF means. Some of my guesses are Final Fantasy camera, Fantasy Football camera, Fantastic Four camera, Fast Food camera, Family Feud camera, or Fast Forward camera. I guess the Pentax is doomed crowd already thinks it stands for Fatally Flawed camera.

You say Ricoh is a small company, but they had huge banner ads at the stadiums of two Italian soccer games I watched today: Roma - Milan and Fiorentina - Lazio. It was a bit strange to see that, but I was happy about it. They just need to add Pentax! :)

They did bury Lightroom 6--they are really pushing the Creative Cloud! I have version 5.4 of Lightroom and it will cost $80 to upgrade to version 6 which does not seem worth it. Version 5 is a good program, and I think it will do what most people need to do with photos other than pixel manipulation.

But you can manually focus with live view if you need to. I think that works well with focus peaking.

I'm sorry about asking a question in this thread, but it does relate to the advice given. Why should camera shake reduction be turned off while using a tripod, and doesn't it get automatically turned off using remote control (not sure about cable release)?

How does a FF work in crop mode?

Yes, I mean what kind of reaction do you expect with a presumptive conclusion that mirrors are dead.

It's a shame that technology has achieved such prominence in the art of photography. Many photographers sound like computer people now. I know several painters and other traditional artists for whose work technology has had little influence, let alone a dominating influence. Some posts on internet forums seem to suggest that if one does not have the newest camera body with all of the latest cutting edge technology, they cannot be successful or even a good photographer.

One of my best friends photographs strictly in film, and develops his film in black and while in his own darkroom. He does professional work, and is happy. I would not tell him that his art is dead because he is not using a digital camera.

I think many of us forget that art is different things to different people and whether the artist is happy with his or her work, and what a third person takes away from it is paramount, not whether the artist's tools could have been improved.

It looks like the after the FF is released, the doom talk will then all revolve around Pentax not having an adequate mirrorless camera. It never ends.

Doesn't it depend on the country? I would think a Pentax FF would do well in Japan with professionals.
