In my daughter's dance class with my camera mounted on a tripod, I tried to capture scenes that I found interesting, in these beautiful practices where the girls show their talent to the fullest, it turns out that this shot of an intense red is one of my favorites and I want to share it with you.

DP Review puts K-1 Mark II as second worst camera of 2018

When I chose to invest in lenses and Pentax camera, I took as reference photos in 500 px, FlickR, Google plus, etc...
Before I used Nikon but I liked more the image of the Pentax K-5 and K-3. Unfortunately, many people are manipulated by youtubers, it is a business like any other.
Companies invest in them and they sell to the highest bidder. They tell you today which is the best camera and several weeks later they can change their mind. I’m not saying that this is the case.
Ricoh does not invest in the promotion of their brand, in YouTube channel the last publication is from two years ago and there is no information about of K-1. Unfortunately for those who are loyal to Pentax.
In pentax link: PENTAX : Welcome to the PENTAX Photo Gallery camera and lenses does not appear the Pentax K-1 nor the Pentax Mark II that is reference point to see the photographs of this camera, the ambassadors do not appear, only three: William Hereford, Chris Knight and Kerrick James.
I am a regular visitor to Barnes and Noble where I read photography magazines accompanied by a cup of starbucks coffee and Pentax ads do not exist there is not any reference to this brand, not an article or at least in one photograph.
Maybe you are right when you said that the company is not going in the right direction, or maybe we were expecting more from the K-1 & Mark II, but to say that it is the worst camera of 2018 does not make sense.
In another of your videos on YouTube placed the K-70 as the worst among a group of cameras with similar characteristics.

You Tube

I particularly do not believe in youtubers which promote products. For me a scientific database like DXOMARK is more credible.

I prefer to use the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC HSM because I achieve high resolution image, it has a nice size and above all little weight, its brightness and sharpness which is what I like the most. The price is not bad. I also use the DA 40mm and the DA 70mm achieving good results.
If I were to choose a prime for portrait without doubt it would be the fa77mm which I do not have.

Excellent work from Precision Camera, they received my Pentax K-3 on May 15 to repair the Hot-Shoe and May 18 was repaired. I received it yesterday May 21 by UPS. Hot-Shoe was replaced, Autocross Test, Check, Calibration and Realignment, Firmware Download, Address Values Measured and Adjusted complete cleaning (internal-external). All under Pentax guarantee. I was able to go through the process of working through the webpage of Precision Camera.

Thank all of you for your good advice.
