Pentax K-1ii VS Sony A7iii (Am I switching to the dark side?)

I‘ve just switched after 12 years of Pentax. The A7III is a huge step forward (even though not flawless).

Will we see Eye-AF on Pentax cameras anytime soon

like on the Sony A7 III or is it technically not possible to implement it on a DSLR when focusing through the viewfinder?

I fell in love with this feature. However, I try everything to justify staying with Pentax cameras, so maybe there's a chance to see this implemented on Pentax DSLR as well?

Thank you for your comments! I didn't know that the DA35 shows some vignetting even though I know that the "DA" indicates this. All my reading has so far supported my idea that the DA is fully FF-compatible. So I'm glad I asked back.

Furthermore, I read a lot about some issues the FA might have with PF and some other things which people said is better controlled by the DA since it has a more modern coating. However, all articles I found dealt with them on APS-C cameras.

Of course I'll surely like the haptics of the FA more, however, I wouldn't mind that much since the DA is way cheaper. But optics are most important to me and how they perform on FF.

Merry Christmas to you guys as well :)

Thanks for the link! Interesting Read! Reminds me of the fact that I still got a DA40XS 2.8. Unfortunately my K-1 is currently being repaired and won't be back that fast, so I cannot check it. Is there some detectable/serious vignetting when you use this lens on a K-1? 40mm vs. 35mm shouldn't be that much different on FF, right?

So I have to modify my question a bit: any reasons to choose the FA35 2.0 when you already got a DA40XS?

German Pentaxians (Pentaxians ? Portal) have just relaunched KMP.

Maybe it's a good source for some people here as well:

DA200 2.8 - good for portraits (on a K1)?
Posted By zeitlos

Alright, very first test shots with my model, good old buddy Bruno :).

I like the how it handles on a K-1, the weight is reasonable, so is the size. Just the hood could be shorter. I'm wondering whether it's because it was meant to be used on APS-C bodies?

Anyway, hope you like what you see. I'm pretty confident that it will be a keeper. Focus is spot on as far as I can say. Even f2.8 works.

Sample Shots: Tamron 28-75mm vs. Pentax 24-70mm

Just in case your are interested in seeing comparable sample shots of the new 24-70mm Pentax and the Tamron 28-75mm, you may follow this link:

Nur mal so: Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 vs. Pentax 24-70mm 2.8 ? Pentaxians

I've uploaded two different scenes, shooting both lenses at exactly the same settings (24/28 – 50 –70 => 2.8 – 3.5 – 4.5)

As long as you are focusing on portraits (on APS-C) the Tamron 28-75mm is an excellent choice. Things differ when it comes to landscape (maybe due to the more modern coating etc.).

But see yourself (would love to show lager files but theres a restriction to 1200x1200 pixel).

For me, one of the most important questions is whether this camera has a Hybrid-Viewfinder or not. I'm severely hoping for it.

Thank you all for your responses and links! I've ordered my copy a few days ago from Amzon.fr. It's only about 680,- Euro (silver version)... however, I've ordered the black one which is just slightly more expensive (710,- Euro).

I intend to use it as a replacement for my DA*16-50 especially when I'm traveling and depending on good, weather sealed lenses. Circumstances can be demanding from time to time. Here you'll find pictures from my last journey (Georgia, former Sowjet Union): Update: Georgien 2012 UND 2014 - einige Eindrücke. • Pentaxians

Hopefully the 20-40 Limited zoom lens won't be a bad choice.

My two Bodies (K-30 + K5IIs) are back from service. What should I say. The FA31 suddenly looks pretty well on both bodies! Love it!
