Pentax retailer in the Bay area?

It's a difficult one as most stores in the area have reduced their inventory considerably. The options that I know of is samy's camera in san Francisco, all they really have are some used lenses, and a used k3 in the right display, another distributor is camera west in Walnut Creek. Yet they only varied the 645z, at this point you would need to order it. Lastly I think there is a place in Berkeley, but I am not sure. I think the best bet is to go through Craigslist.

Yeah not sure what to think. It is hard to believe that dslrs are going away. I went into the local camera store's today in my area and couldn't help but notice what people were buying. Maybe saw one person buying an Olympus but most others were buying nikon and Canon dslrs. Did not see any other cameras let alone mirrorless on the counter or in people's hands. Yeah I see dslrs being safe for the time being.

Oh, ok... That makes more sense. Yeah I don't know how often they update the information as they don't make mention of the newer bodies from the past couple years. So I can see how they just mention how ibis is still the way to go.

I was thinking of another point as you mention video. If Pentax would develop a CO system where the cameras can utilize both at the same time, would it be worth it outside of just looking at the back screen for video? Reason I ask is if one was to do a long exposures without a tripod it would be difficult to keep the camera steady while looking at a blacked out viewfinder. There would be nothing to be able to keep the framing for reference. I can see it if it was one or the other as far as long lenses, but in general it might be a waste in that regard.

I might be slightly confused? If you go to the lens page with the 300mm, Olympus mentions how their lenses with IS work in conjunction with their 5 axis IBIS. it is not a one or other, although you can select which one you want to use. It is only with select bodies, but it does work well.

Wasn't the shutter shock issue only happening to a select number of k1's? I don't ever remembering it happening to the one I had.

FF mirrorless adoption super slow

That is true, with the ovf though it is the use of mirrors or pentaprism, the view converge/ magnification, and if there are overlays or what is viewed in the ovf layout. Last but not least the mirror mechanism the dampening force to prevent mirror shock, if they allow mirror lockup, mirror speed. Ovfs have their price cuts as well, luckily as a brand Pentax generally have been great across the line.

Was it the R or RP model? They use two different evfs. The evf on the RP is horrible, but the R model is much better and easier on the eyes.

ND Filter Stop Suggestion and magnetic filter system?

I think 6 stop is the one to go for in a good number of cases. if I need more I also use a darker cpl filter, which helps reduce the incoming light.

It's funny how they want you to believe that there is no lag, especially for panning and shooting. I will say though, battery life is not as horrible with current generation of milc. I know what the cipa ratings state, in one camera I can get between 1000-2000 shots and the other easily between 600-1200. I'm not defending milc in a good amount of cases, but that doesn't sound like poor battery life, especially it's not spraying, running and gunning, and normal use much like a DSLR.

I don't think I'm doing anything special really. Just I turn off image review, and unless I'm ready to shoot I keep the camera turned off. Idk maybe Sony is different, but with Canon and Fuji there are no issues.

I mean for me anyways, I don't walk around with my camera up to my eye, but it's not like you need to be cheap with the battery usage to put it mildly... Haha. If you see something about to happen you can turn on the camera, wait, compose, etc much like a DSLR without having to worry about your battery running down. Newer systems are much more energy efficient. And evfs are nowhere close to ovf clear/crisp/lagfree, but they are getting closer.

I think the battery depends on camera and how the person sets it up. To the most part I don't have battery issues at all with my mirrorless cameras. For a general camera I'll get anywhere between 600-2000 shots on one battery. I don't spray my shots either.

12 image handheld pano taken with the XT3 and the 18-55 kit lens. The hills were glowing with green when taking the images, so I desaturated the image a tad.

I think you missed something in my post... I said "I equate", meaning in my view. Others have their opinions as well. anyone can use what ever camera for what ever they would like, even a 60,000 dollar camera as a travel family camera if they were inclined. Anyways, for rejects they are nice pictures. :D

As much of an advantage, it's not always accurate and can be off.

I don't blame you, but AF in general for single point is great, locks really well especially in dimmly lit environments. In general though I equate Pentax at primarily being a landscape camera.

I can see that. I can't answer to why anyone would buy an F lens, but buying an EF lens is a different story. Instead of a need for a filter housing on a wide lens, get the drop in filter adapter. if you aren't one to use a view finder because the camera stays on a tripod, why risk worrying about mirror shock, or having to worry about stray light through the viewfinder under certain conditions and exposures, certain cameras allow for a tilt evf. I think in general for every reason in favor of one, you can counter with a reason for the other.

I think at least here in the US the Panasonic started shipping a day or two ago, so I wouldn't imagine that there are many out there.

As far as FF goes for Canon and nikon, I think people aren't quite convinced. They are missing key features that their current bodies have, and at least for Canon is concerned the crop in video. It will be interesting to see where things go.

Other cameras have pixelshift or high res mode, other cameras have better support(unless you are a Canon with .cr3 files), other cameras have better tracking, other cameras do many things better. What makes the k1 special is not any of those items, what makes the k1 special are the raw files, and those odd ball focal lengths such as the 77mm, 43mm, and the 31mm along with how small they are. The raw files are amazing that comes from Pentax cameras. How they deliver the shadows and highlights are just right in my book.

Yeah I haven't tried it myself, maybe one day. I could think of all the times I would use the dfa 15-30 and wished I had a ND filter or polarizer for landscapes.
