Need help with Pentax 70-200
Posted By emsee

It looks like either Ricoh/Pentax moved some of the factories/repair facilities to Japan or they have subcontracted the repair work to one of the Japan based lens manufacturers - Sigma, Tamron or Tokina. I remember another person also saying that the 70-200 is repaired in Japan. I have also seen a blog post by one of the infamous Pentax blogger/hater that the DA* lenses are now made in Japan.

Anyone knows?

Fast 50 delimma, old school f1.2 versus DA f1.4

I still regret my decision that I sold my Voigtlander Nokton 58mm F1.4 to fund for the purchase of Pentax 43mm as I thought AF is the way to go. I got the lens as a New Old Stock (brand new unused) when CameraQuest was selling off their last copies. I even had the metallic lens hood from Adorama - They do not have It anymore .

It is a wonderful lens and I truly wish Cosina make it again (they are still making it for Nikon F-Mount).

DPR's K1ii Re-shoot is up: Score now 80%

I am even thinking that the user ‘dpthoughts’ is a fake name of one of the DPR editors (the same
Deputy Editor) who is arrogant and lacks any kinds of journalistic integrity. I can definitely see some unfair activities by DPR mods and editors. But it’s their site and they can do whatever they want. The best thing to do is - boycott the site (Yes, 1 less visitor is nothing for them). If this type of trend continues, many people will do similar things and then they would learn.

Judging from the tone of the recent comments from the Deputy Editor, I do not think we can expect any change in the overall message even if they perform the reshoot.

Due to the arrogance and fanboy nature of the Deputy Editor, I visit the DPREVIEW less often these days.

Ned Bunnell (former Pentax USA chief) had an article explaining that there is essentially no difference between MIJ and AIV (Assembled In Vietnam) Limited lenses. I heard that some of the very early versions of FA43mm (serial numbers less than 1000) are different (Thorium based glass). But other than that, MIJ and AIV versions are equal. Just like every other lenses there might be copy-to-copy variations but that is not very un-uncommon.

Why are you afraid of mentioning his name? He should learn the hard way.

As I mentioned in another thread,it is a shame that such a person is an editor for a large photography gear forum!!!

Rishi is someone whom I cannot not associate the word ‘journalistic integrity’ - not to mention outright arrogance and bias. It is sad (or shame?) that such a person is the deputy editor of one of the largest photographer community site.

K-1II review... Opportunity to get banned on DPR

I have pre-ordered K-1 Mark II and received the camera on the very next day of its release in US (Since I am in NJ, the shipping was overnight for me). Mine came with firmware 1.01.

Also, check the one of the first comparison from March 28th when K-1 Mark II was released in Europe:
Pentax K-1 Mark IIDSLR camera already shipping, first review published online | Pentax Rumors

You can see the K-1 Mark II has firmware 1.01 from its official release day itself.

Cactus V6II and RF60X - On Camera Setup
Posted By emsee
Replies: 34
Views: 2,477
My knowledge about Cactus systems is very limited or even nothing. I have these questions

1) If I use Cactus V6II on camera and mount Cactus RF60x on top of V6II on camera, can I get P-TTL and HSS (on-camera)? My intent is to get an additional on-camera P-TTL flash option and I do not want to spend much to get a Pentax or Metz flash

2) If I use a Canon compatible flash (Godox), how does th X-TTL work? Does it work on-camera (mounted on top of V60II)?

Your responses are greatly appreciated.

I tried to open one of the initial photos (PEF file) from K1 Mark 2 with Lightroom CC and it does not open up. My experience in Lightroom CC is very limited (I was a Capture One user) and does not know more detailed step - I just got the Adobe CC subscription and it includes Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC.

Thanks. These help me a lot.

I did not find the CA that much bad (non-fixable) based on my experience. Yes, CA is there but with tools it is fixable.

Focusing noise does matter to me.

I will read these reviews and make a decision.

---------- Post added 04-15-18 at 06:19 PM ----------



May be I should rent the Sigma 35mm for a week and decide on it. FL wise it is a good for me.
