K5's Shake Reduction

The SR in k-5 works well for me. I know because I often had a hard time taking anything under 1/60 while using nikon d90. That means I have fairly shaky hands. Now I can descend down to 1/15 and still get sharp.

But you absolutely have to wait for the green hand to get on, otherwise you'll get blurry even at 1/500.

I don't need FF. Hell I even may not need a k-5 and all my lenses, but gear hunger led me here. I may as well have lived with my Nikon D80 and 18-70mm which I bought just over one year ago.

There are two perspectives to this FF thing;

First; you are an enthusiast, or an over-enthusiast, and you always intend to use what you think is best suited to your taste. So the yearn for higher luxury items.
Second; you are a hobbyist, you spend your money to practice your hobby and make the most of it. So you get a life.

It's a problem that we cannot think logically, that is, thinking based on what we actually need; we tend to think what we actually want, disregarding what we can make most out of. The FF camera won't turn a bad light into good. Maybe gives you a little extra headroom in it; but is it so critical for ya?

I intend to move to the second perspective, because sometimes I find myself examining pixel sharpness more than I enjoy the quality of the moment that I captured. I feel hollow doing this.

The DOF issue, yet true, is merely pointless; just because you want more bokeh does not justify the "need" for a FF camera. I think photography is not about bokeh, let alone using an FF for that. Bokeh is a concern for beginners or wannabe photographers IMHO.

And there is the mobility issue. I take my camera nearly everywhere with me, and it is not always possible to go light or comfortable with it in the bag (which it requires) or in the hand. I even sometimes consider to move to a NEX system with pancake things. For a man like me who lives with his gear, mobility is important, and even a smallish camera like the k-5 and with a pancake lens on it can disturb me sometimes. My point here is any Canon or Nikon FF camera is very big. And without any lens attached. This whole mobility issue may not be a problem for everyone, I see that, but even I like the D700 so much I just cannot live with a D700 + 24-70 (even a small 35mm f2 D) pressing down my backpack.

As to the wide issue, I agree with the dude, what do you call a 10-20 mm?

I have enlarged the VF on my k-5 with a small tool which gets in the viewfinder slot of the k-5, instead of the original one, and magnifies the viewfinder about 1.5x. Now I have the FF viewfinder.

I can only see why older men want 35mm sensor; they are coming from 35mm film years. Lenses turning back to original wide FOV. Even that can be overcome.

About cheap lenses performing better on FF; now come on. If Pentax releases an FF, no one will use a $15 50mm f/2 lens on it. People will race to buy super quality FF lenses to put on their FF Pentax. So your argument is invalid. And also if you want FF for more quality, you will attach a more quality lens on it. So your argument is double invalid. Do canonians use crappy m42 50mm's on their 5D Mklls? Or even Canon 50mm 1.8? No, not much of them; as far as I know they use Carl Zeiss and equivalent.

So forgive me for the slightly attacking tone, but I cannot stop but criticize any consumption frenzy, which I am the victim of.
