DA 18-135 WR, Show us what it can do

I look at them for different purposes. The IQ on both are excellent as I've shot portraits with both but seem to pull out the 18-135 more due to it's quietness and focal range, Most of my shots are within the 25-75mm range. While that may show some overlap I'll stick with the 18-135 for two more reasons...size and zoom ring. The DAL 55-300 is not smooth trying to zoom in and out (at least mine isn't) it's haltingly rough and it's much larger length-wise than the 18-135 but similar in weight on my scales 17.5 oz DAL and 15.9 oz for the 18-135.If you get a smooth one the 55-300 will make a nice addition to your collection but I'm almost positive the newer version (PLM) will run circles around the DAL 55-300. Hope that helps.

Anyone know a place that repairs these old A lens besides Precision? MY A 28 2.8 stopped focusing. It stays wide open and the focus rings just spins now.

I have an older Sigma 17-70C that hasn't had much use since I got the Sigma 17-50 2.8mm lens. I do sometimes miss the extra 20mm of reach but I love the pictures I get with this lens.

This will be the lens I keep out of my current APSC lens if I sell the other zooms. It's weather sealed and takes awesome shots.

They actually have a Pentax event once a year where they have a Pentax rep come in and talk about Pentax products. I got a really cool Pentax Coffee mug one year :)

Video review of the Pentax K1 mkII

I think this reviewer missed the point on what Hand held pixel shift does. It's not for moving subjects, it's for movement in the shooters hands. Improved auto-focus...that's huge for most shooters. Now if it's worth upgrading your K-1 that's up to each individual shooter.

For the life of me I can't find it now but Ricoh announced they've improved the auto focus performance on the new model K1 Mark II. Saw the post on Instagram. If anyone can find it. Post a link for everyone to read. It is very interesting.

Someone will get a early release model and run it through some test and do a YouTube video on it so that they can be the first one to give a video review and get the most views.

Thanks for the response. I'll check it out. I have the medium Rogue Flashbender that I've been using but I'll probably add this.

I saw that "Hands-On Review" but that's not actual testing just handling it at the booth.

I'm wondering when we can expect an official review of the new model to come out. I'm sure we are not going to have to wait until mid-April to get to see this camera put through it's paces. Anyone know when? I'm mainly interested in the auto focusing algorithm.

Xiaming I just want to thank you for all the hard work and dedication to this issue. I don't have a K-1 but it is good to know we have people like you that take the time to develop an app like this for the community.
