The new site looks nice superficially. The wording in places is poorly choosen IMHO.

"Begin your Medium Format journey with this extensive, all-in-one kit."
At first read, no kidding, I thought they said ExPensive.

I went through the same process 2 years ago and went with the Tamron because its SHARP and far more affordable. I have not been disappointed and use it for soccer and other school sports photography primarily.

I saw that you said they were straight out of the camera. Still, I expect more contrast in B&W even straight out of a higher end camera.

Nice review. The B&W's all look a bit washed out to me.

Haven't really had that problem but brief review of images on the screen ought to catch that issue after the first shot.

Thanks for sharing. Another instance of the Q and its front dial being very useful and practical. The B&W shots are much more powerful IMHO.

I agree with Mattt. The lens is much more likely to have sustained damage than the body.

Welcome aboard. T here are some screens that can replace the stock viewfinder screen that make manual focus easier. Lots of opinions on which ones work best but there are 2 or 3 that get the most positive comments among them the 2 you mention. I'd read posts here and ask in the equipment section of the forum.

Only has one lens and a 214 degree maximum view without repositioning according to material I read at Amazon. Runs $319 to $369 depending on which accessory bundle you pick.

Unfortunate because its a great image but it comes with heavy connotations. Sorry, but in Atlanta anything rainbow is IMMEDIATELY seen as related to that community.

K-S2: 100 weather seals—Needed because of the vari-angle LCD?
Posted By Docrwm

It probably has to do with the LCD screen being detached from the body and allowing air circulation around both main sides thereby decreasing its resistance to low temps. The LCDs mounted directly to the body benefit from a camera body interior temperature that is higher and takes longer to change to match the ambient temperature thereby insulating one side of the LCD better than the swing out version.

My favorite Pentax promotional images are the WR seals images


The more images like this one that Pentax puts out there the better IMHO. This one really sells the WR for the kit and the LCD is wet too (although its a bit cropped for my tastes).
