People who like DxO should purchase new copies if necessary. Your goal should be to play your part to keep them going. Although, the one thing that never comes under scrutiny is the competence of the management team. But DxO has provided valuable resources to the photographic community for a long time., and not just their customers, all of us. To me, they are worthy of support and an effort to keep them afloat.

If I thought it would save them, I'd probably even buy a copy or participate in crowd funding for them. They've earned some good will. :D

Unlike Adobe who have several times ripped me off. :D

Yay! Ricoh Imaging will announce a new camera this month or next month! (Nokishita)

Just for the record, the superb D500 came out 7 years after the D300s, on 2016. From 2012 you can find hundrends of threads of Nikon fans demanding a new high end APS-C sport oriented camera. They felt they were forgotten by Nikon and many said they were considering jumping ship to other brands (with the Pentax K-3 being brought up quite often).

On 2016 CP+ D500 was announced and the Nikon officials were declaring:
"Was the D7000-series ever meant to replace the D300-series?

We were hoping that the D7000 series would cover a portion of the customer base that used the D300S, but the customers continued to say that they wanted a replacement for that model, so thatís why we made the D500." (source: CP+ 2016: Nikon interview - 'the D500 is the D300S replacement that customers wanted': Digital Photography Review)

Now that might reminds you of something (K-3, K-3II, KP). Pentax is quite smaller and I feel that they are pushed by their base to release a K-3 succesor, as this was not their initial plan when KP was released.

PS: I feel that when the new APS-C will be released many ex-Pentaxians will sigh for the times they were shooting Pentax. How do I know? This is what history has shown so far. Pentax is slow in releasing new equipment, but most times it well worths the wait.

Hello Wild Mark

I'be been running with a Canon 400d and 18-55, and whetted my appetite for more pixels+variable viewfinder+ wifi essentially. The change to Pentax is a personal historical 'thing'. The 18-55 has been pretty good to me, the 70-300 less so, but I think that maybe operator shortcomings! Flickr site at that petrol emotion | Flickr if you have the time.

Calling this practice 'nefarious' could be considered unnecessarily accusative. I'd rather say it is more typical of corporations globally. The goal is to make money, not burn it. Even for Japanese companies, and their unusual business culture, it would be hard to argue otherwise directly. Profit is important.

With such a lacking modern lens lineup, I don't see Pentax having a large pool of 'high-end' customers for K mount. Once the lenses start to arrive in number, if ever, then I think we'll see more of an immigration to the land of Pentax. Many here, from reading the comments, bought the K-1 to use their suite of old lenses... attracting the same small pool of users is a recipe for stagnation, eventually we lose interest in buying new things or give up the hobby for various reasons.... So one must look outside the Pentax pond for new customers.. which I think the new D-FAs are designed to do.. if they ever launch the suckers. Not that I'm expecting large numbers to move over.. at least Canikon sized numbers of users.

One thing the Pentax community needs to hear and hear often is this: We can't keep living in the past. The past is the past; it is gone. Let it go. There is life now, today, that needs to be lived.

Honestly a D750 class FF body would have been more suited for me, but Pentax didn't offer that, so I got a K-1. It is nice but I can understand the "less is more" feeling. At least when it comes to file size. :lol: Originally I was waiting for the K-3 III to release.. but it didn't when I was ready to buy a new camera. They launched the KP instead.

...gotta make sure the sensor is parallel to your target before assuming one-sidedness is due to a decentered element.

Back to your original question...
I do a thorough inspection (visual and mechanical) of all lenses (both new and used) on receipt
Included in the visual inspection is a thorough look-see of the inside using a magnifying loupe, a darkened room and a small flashlight shining at oblique angle through the other end. The aim is to detect obvious defect or corruption of the glass. Yes, I once found a cracked element in a brand new lens from a major maker.
  • Included in the mechanical inspection is evaluation of all controls, aperture operation, and focus operation (manual and auto)

  • Any rattles or looseness?

  • I then do a little shooting of ordinary stuff to put the lens through its paces. If there are serious optical flaws or stuff like poor infinity calibration, it will generally show. (Yes, Samyang, we are talking about you...)

  • If things look disappointing in real world shooting, I will then check against a test target under controlled conditions. If you want to screen specifically for a decentered element use a Siemen's star or LensRentals handy substitute: - Testing for a Decentered Lens: an Old Technique Gets a Makeover

Have I ever sent a lens back? You betcha! The one with the cracked element went in on warranty and used stuff...dozens, mostly for fungus and one for what appeared to be a missing or backward internal element.

Pentax 16-50mm f2.8

There is a comment I got from Pentax Service in Russian
There are (were) two issues with 16-50
  1. Sudden SDM switching off. The issue has been resolved in lenses that is produced since 2013

  2. There is design deficiency (or peculiarity). The SDM consists of two main parts: rotor and stator. They are separated with very small distance (about microns). So any stuff between rotor and stator increases friction and power of the piezoelectric elements is not enough to rotate the rotor.
    The sources of the stuff are: dust, chemical reaction (oxidation), lubricant evaporation. The latter two are originate from prolonged lens disuse. In order to avoid this it is enough to use the lens once per week.

thin wall graphite/carbon fiber is easily damaged.
small dings when stressed can end badly.

if you notice a ding try forcing epoxy into the fracture. let it dry...completely. then you can work the patch flush with the surface of the tube.

with a dent...disassemble the the protruding fiber to the surface (a hardwood dowel with a rounded end works great) .
if the fiber is not torn use the above technique.
otherwise lay an epoxy film over the dent/hole, wrap white thread or polyester monofilament over the damaged area. you can find pictures of the wrapping technique by searching for fishing rod wrapping.
wipe the excess glue off.
let it dry.
work a very thin coat of epoxy over the patch.
to avoid lumps you will need to rotate the tube until the glue dries.
the thread will disappear more or less.
you will have a tube with almost original strength.

I've used this technique to fix arrows, fishing rods and even tripod legs.
regular epoxy works fine, rod wrapping epoxy works much seems to retain some flex and does not yellow.

FF out in 4 months
Posted By Matthew Saville

I don't blindly trust DXO, that's for sure. I've been working in wedding post-production for 5+ years now, and as a wedding photographer / educator for ~12 years. So I've post-produced literally a half-million images from Canon 5-series bodies alone, and maybe another half-million images from various other cameras from Nikon to Pentax, Sony, etc.

My personal experience is that Canon dynamic range is abysmal. Compared to any Sony sensor, whether Pentax or Nikon, the shadow banding on Canon is just a total show-stopper. Yes, Canon has a bit more highlight headroom than some, but it's not that much more, not enough to make up for the sorely lacking shadow recovery. I understand people have their own personal standards for shadow noise or highlight.....funkyness, but whether you "draw the line" at 10 stops, or 13/14 stops, I see Canon coming in noticeably behind most other sensors on the market today.

TLDR; as a landscape photographer shooting at lower ISOs, I'd take a K-3 or K-3 II ANY DAY over any Canon DSLR, APS-C or full-frame.

---------- Post added 09-21-15 at 03:32 PM ----------

While reviewing various Nikon cameras, I've had the good fortune of gaining access to sensors with identical megapixel counts, and release dates very close, but different sensor sizes.

In short, here's how I'd answer your question: A 24 megapixel 1.5x crop sensor will have *slightly* less dynamic range, *slightly* more noise overall, and *slightly* less per-pixel acuity. However, none of these slight differences will be really noticeable. The only real big difference will be at ISO noise above 400 or so, when the "faint" amount of greater noise in a crop sensor slowly begins to become more significant.

The main problem is that there's almost always a generation gap, or a sensor processing engine gap, from sensor to sensor. We'll almost never get two sensors of identical megapixel counts, identical on-chip and off-chip processing, etc. And every 6-12 months, a slight improvement is made in one area or another.

However, considering Pentax' 645Z image quality, we could still expect a shocker from their FF sensor. I just wonder where that sensor is going to come from, and how many megapixels it will "get away with"....

I have been shooting since the late 1960s, but I don't know that I would ever make a claim of inerrancy based on those 45+ years. I don't doubt that you got poor results, but your deep experience was not with your K-3 and you did not attempt the same subject with the superior Canon system that you no longer shoot with. I have several friends who shoot Canon semi-professionally and none brag about the AF system. What I generally hear is cursing. For birds in flight when shooting Canon, the general appraisal is that the lack of accuracy is balanced by the fast frame rate. Spray and pray and blame the gear at end of day.

In regards to your wedding...Were you shooting your FA Limiteds wide open? Are you aware that NO PDAF system on the market has focus sensitivity greater than f/2.8? Were you shooting AF-C? Shoot AF at wider than f/2.8, even using the center column of sensors and your keeper rate will fall. Shoot AF at wider than f/2.8 using other than the center column of sensors and you keeper rate will fall significantly. Shoot AF-C in dim light and you are asking for failure. The K-3 has exceptional capabilities in this area, but the system will be slow to acquire focus and AF-C is contraindicated. Even Nikon has trouble with this use case. A pro would have tested the room prior to the ceremony and bumped the ISO high enough to allow a narrower aperture. Lecture over. Sorry you missed your shots. It is a disappointment when that happens and it happens even to experienced photographers.

As for the slowness of the SDM motors in some Pentax lenses, I would refer you to the reviews on this site regarding focus speed. The SDM lenses are very quiet, but notoriously slow. I wish it were not so and am embarrassed for Pentax that they still don't have a speedy in-camera AF drive system.

I use only SanDisk Extreme cards in my K200D. They seem to clear the buffer faster. I shoot race boats and race cars a lot. Bursts are the best way to catch the moments. They don't wait around for you to setup and press the shutter. This is one of my favorite captures. I would have NEVER gotten it without Burst. The boat is moving between 150 to 160 mph. It was only like this for a split second. I got real lucky. No part of the boat is in the water in this shot.

I've never had any issues with any of my Extreme's except for my original card the plastic case has come apart. The card however continues to work to this day. I've never formatted them. I mostly use the USB cable to transfer my shots to my PC the delete them using the camera. Been doing it that way since 2008 with NO problems. YMMV

Well, I have owned or long term rented every one of the Nikon and Canon lenses discussed. For the Nikon it was used on a D3X for 3 years. No matter what the Nikon rep said, the Nikon 16-35 VR is weather sealed up to the same or better than the Pentax WR standard, but is mostly made of plastic and is not considered a pro lens, but a higher consumer lens. I have shot with the 17-35 AFS and it is not sealed except at the lens mount like all the older pro nikon glass(80-200 f2.8 etc), but is mostly made of metal. Nikon only specifies how weather sealed their lenses are on 3 of them, and even this changes on their website: the 24-70 f2.8, the 14-24 f2.8 and sometimes the newest 70-200 f2.8. It is assumed in the pro community that many others like the 16-35 vr are also completely WR(I can vouch for that one in the lousy winter in Germany in 2010). Only one Nikon DX lens is thought to be sealed: the 17-55 f2.8 and it is $1300 street price and their is no VR in it. I owned the Canon 5DII, the Canon 17-40 is sealed, and made mostly of plastic. It requires a filter to complete the sealing. It is also very soft in the corners to f11 or so on FF. The 16-35 f2.8 canon is sealed, has more metal in it but still at least 1/2 plastic, and sharper on FF. None of the specifically mentioned lenses is totally/mostly made of metal except the Nikon 17-35 f2.8. I consider the Pentax Limiteds to be pro class lenses by virtue of their construction quality. Not every pro lens is super fast in f-stop. And I do think the MAP of the 20-40 lens is fair if it holds up it's end with very good/excellent quality straight from the largest lens opening. I used Leica M's exclusively until I started the change to digital in 2008. You want pricy, look at Leica glass. But they are beautiful to use, touch, look at. And the Pentax Limiteds are mechanically just as good IMO, and many times just as good optically, esp. compared to the Leica glass from 3-5 years ago. The only reason I quit Leica was the M8 was a real bummer, and no one knew if the M9 would be FF or not. And the M9 sensor turned out to be very noisy like many CCD sensors. Now I am content not to use any more Leicas as I found the K7/K5/K5IIs/ and I presume the K3 to be quieter than the M4 shutter(you tube has a video somewhere, I have sold all my leica gear by now) with a whole lot of other features. Anyhow, call me if I blew technicalities on this post, as I am juggling three things now, and I will correct as needed. But I like the Pentax 20-40 a lot, I just pray it is optically up to snuff.

This is such a typical "academic" type response. pointing out everything that might be wrong..... think court of law here... this is evidence. You may
have issues with the evidence, but, it's still evidence.

What I have always said is, you go to places like DxO and you see the numbers, but you don't know how to translate that information into what you're going to see in your pictures. You may have 1 stop more this or that, more noise or less noise or whatever, but what photographers are interested in would be producing images, not numerical analysis. I've been asking for over two years for someone with an FF to do an analysis like this. I don't want a bunch of mumbo jumbo. The fact is one stop difference is very small, and can usually be overcome. People say "one stop difference" as if that is some kind big deal. But you look at pictures like this, and you end up thinking, people have been wetting their pants over nothing.

And that's the thing here. What these images show more than anything else, is that under normal shooting conditions, there just isn't that mcuh difference. It explains to me why decent comparative images have never been offered, in support of theis imagined huge advantage FF is supposed to confer on it's users. The actual differences from FF to APS-c are only dramatic with numerical exaggeration. IN real life, they are pretty much insignificant. The whole FF thing that has gone on is based on hype , not images.

So, these guys have done a perfunctory investigation... I'd say, fine, I totally understand that, SO, show me something better. And please don't say wait for DxO. DxO don't make their images, on which they base their statistics available. In 60% of scientific studies the conclusions are not supported by the data. Without the data, you really can't check on the validity of the conclusions. When you deal with a site like DxO you have to have blind trust, that they got it right. Personally, I'd dismiss any site that says "trust me". On Imaging Resource, you can look and see for yourself, using the same images they used. And what they show is what these images show, not a lot of difference. SO based on previous experience, I'd put more stock in these images than whatever DxO publishes, and I'd put what IR publishes ahead of both of them, because they are shooting in a more controlled environment, and they share their data.

People who don't share their data, often have something to hide. IN DXO's case, what they seem to behiding is that they are not accounting for sample variation.

In the absence of evidence, one should be cautious, but one also has to evaluate what the evidence means. And this evidence means the average guy going out and taking the average images in an average uncontrolled environment can probably do well with either system. And I'm not seeing the FF advantage. That may not mean anything to the technically inclined, but criticism from the technically/academicly inclined can be petty, obscure and pretty much meaningless in the real world. And IMHO, often the technically inclined way over state miniscule differences in the interest of academic discussion.

So I'd say calling this a joke is a bit harsh. It's less than thorough, but in the two years I've been asking folks to come up with something, to which I've been referred to 5 year old articles using cameras that are no longer available, I'd say the evidence supporting the greater utility of FF cameras is more than a joke. I don't have an FF or I'd do it myself. I can not understand why, when we've had posts comparing prints made with D800, and saying the K-01 images are in some ways better, and so many other bits of non-numerically analyses images.

I'd say the actual photos, the empirical evidence including those shot in test conditions at IR, shows there is very little if any difference between FF and APS-c images at this point in time. Perhaps as pixels get smaller and APS-c approaches it's diffraction limit that may change, but to date, the theoretical claims make APS-c sound much worse than FF, and in these images, the pictures look very much the same.

The differences between APS-c and FF are greatly exaggerated and always have been. IMHO. And recently, comparing K5IIs images to Olympus E-M5 images, I'd say the same for 4/3 and APS-c. My guess is still, that doubling anything, be it aperture , sensor size, whatever, is relatively meaningless. I like to think you could notice the difference between 4/3 and FF, but I have no conclusive evidence that's true. It's a hunch. One that from my perspective has just as much merit as the pointless parade or numerical evaluations using artificial standards like É-stops as applied to DoF.

Or as I used to say when I was teaching, if I wanted to devise a test so one student would pass and one would fail, I could do that. But what would that prove? Unfortunately many of the tests proving the advanced utility of FF fall into that category.

It's all part of reality. I guess when the IR results come out and show pretty much the same thing (as they did the with D7100 and D600), you'll find a reason to dismiss those too.

The motivation behind this was that a lot of videos show water sealing, but nothing that I could find that really demonstrated the anti-dust protection Pentax provides when you couple a sealed body with a DA* lens.

focus peaking on the K-5

Yes, that would be great. Believe it or not, I was just discussing that with someone earlier today. I admitted the odds of their listening to me are slim to none, but I said I still want to do it anyway, because it's better to try and maybe fail than not to try at all and certainly fail. We just need to find the ideal email address. The customer-service email address would not be sufficient.

That could be; but do the two Sony NEX cameras that were updated last summer also have the PRIME processor? I think that's Pentax technology, isn't it? I'm not up to date on this information.

I've certainly been wishing the K-5 could produce videos in both file formats. Converting AVIs is a pain. AVI video is the only other thing I really dislike about the K-5 -- along with its confusing and very limited focusing methodology.

I don't really disagree with you, but I guess it depends on ones point of view and business philosophy (I actually once practiced what I preach, much to my boss's/dad's initial frustration; but he later reluctantly admitted that I attracted a lot more loyal customers -- and profits -- because I sold them more for less). Pentax is definitely still making a profit on the K-5, even at $999 (since it is obviously profiting on the K-01 at $749). That means that it was making well over $600 additional profit on each and every K-5 when it was initially priced at $1,599. Pentax may have made a lot of money on each unit at that higher price, but it certainly didn't sell as many as it would have at $999 or even $1,099. If we want Pentax to become a lot larger -- in order to compete with Canon and Nikon -- then it needs to sell lots of high quality cameras at reasonably lower profit margins than a few high quality cameras at much higher profit margins.

I totally agree with that! The K-5 is almost magical, in my opinion. But then, as someone who is new to the world of high-end digital cameras and still has an outsider's perspective, I think the other camera makers have been overpricing their medium- and high-end products too (in other words, IMHO, two wrongs don't make a right). I could be way out of touch with reality, but it appears to me that the camera world has taken on an "elite boutique" mentality since I last paid attention to the market in the 1970s and 1980s. I know inflation (thanks to the Fed) accounts for a huge chunk of overall price increases since "the old days," but it just seems hard to believe that relatively tiny, mid-level cameras cost as much or more than Mac Pros or high-end iMacs, or even (very) used cars. The overpriced iPad does a lot more things than the K-01 and the Q, but it costs about the same as they do. Computer prices keep going down as the years pass, in spite of the customer getting several orders of magnitude more technology for his/her money than in the old days, and in spite of inflation. The same was true of VCRs and is true of DVD players, scanners, hard drives, etc. Why are digital cameras going against that time-honored trend?

Camera mounted spotlight

Only the K5 has a focusing-assist light mounted on the camera, and even it is partially obscured if long lenses are used (eg 70-200 f2.8). I found a simple and cheap way to mount a spotlight on the camera that can be used as a focus assist light for earlier Pentax models, and also works with long lenses on the K5.

Items required:
(1) Do a search on e-bay for "bicycle camera mount". These can usually be found in China or Hong Kong for less than USD10 including postage.

(2) A white LED torch ("flash light" for north Americans) that is roughly 20-25 mm in diameter (same size as a bicycle handle bar). Larger lights can be used if the bottom half of the mount is removed and the light is attached with an elastic strap.

The bicycle mount fits either into the camera or lens tripod screw fitting.

Results are great - I have found that the light has no impact on the use of flash and it allows focusing where none was possible before. It also allows hands to be free to operate the camera.

Photos show the spotlight mounted on my K5 with Sigma 70-200 f2.8 lens. In this case, the spotlight is mounted on the lens tripod attachment ring and can be placed on the side or underneath out of the way of the flash.

The last photo shows a flash photo of a snake taken using only the attached spot light for focusing. The spot light remained on while the photo was taken.
