Da 15mm F4

I had this lens for about two weeks in december. I am now waiting for a wide zoom from pentax either to lean to Sigma 10-20.

Why ?
It simply deceived me regarding the resolution. It is rather a consumer optics in a pro shell. For a wide lens to be acceptable (at least) means to have a constant definition throughout the entire field. A panoramic landscape is unacceptable to be "weak" on corners and margins. So it is this lens: sharp in center but very poor in margins, regardless the aperture

I really think this lens is much overrated just for is it a "Limited".
For me, Limited used to mean a superb optics firstly, a fine shell came secondly only.

Is there someone to help me with a good general profile for ACR for K10D ?

I tried several custom profiles including original Adobe profiles but it seems that none is suitable and accurate to match the real life colors.

Thanks in advance.

No, you won't! :fedup:
won't find such a beauty on K mount.
Only Sony ZA 24-70 and Nikon 24-70 could match such level of optical quality.

Is there a DA* 30mm/1.0 in the works?

You're are all funny with these pathetic rumors.
There is no 30/f1.0 on the way, and there will never be from Pentax.
It would be a giant lens with a giant price, aside of Pentax policy.

Pentax should build faster glass

Fast glass ? Huh huh! :lol:
85mm f/1.4 --> 55mm f/1.2 => 2000$
300mm f/2.8 --> 200mm f/2.0 => 2500$
80-200 f/2.8 --> 50-135mm f/2.0 => 2000$

Therefore, fast glass = extra wage.

Pentax has fine and fast-enough glass. Pentax should build some fine cameras for his glass. :rolleyes:

What Pentax need now ?
After me, it's not about strategy, branding, craps but real facts. So, IMO, Pentax needs now some top notch products, I mean a real camera body: something lilke D700: full-frame high-end semi-pro system.

ISO100 on my K20D, ISO400 on my (new) D700
max ISO values I use: 500 on K20D, 1600 on D700.

Quite a difference, uh ? ;)

From a French source I confirm this rumor launched by the guy Nuby:
K-7 is not the same line as K10/20D. It's a new one.
The K20D line will have a successor later this year.

We need full-size 10 or 15 mp pictures in order to give a preliminary conclusion.
A 800x600 pic tells NOTHING to me !

So please someone upload some full-sizes @ 60, 135, 200 and 250mm @ f4 !!!!

Fresh from a Pentax French dealer/reseller:
it's about K7 (without "D"), it's from the same line as K20D and not a "pro" camera (as the expected K2D). It's not a FF. It has almost the same specifications as K20D. What's new: the look concept, video HD and improvements from K20D (many and consistent). The same Safox VII focus system, but "improved towards stability (?) and accuracy", but not in terms of speed. :(

A pro DSLR camera line is to be expected in 2010-2011, but not a word about the sensor size.

I found there very nice prices (in EU) for Pentax gear but only a few references about them on the net, without relevance. The shiping fee to France is also incredibley low. I found that a bit odd. Are they to be trust ?
Anyway, the site is covered by a Thawte certificate though.

This thread is so lame. It's obviously the K20 + DA35 taken with a lens with focals between 14 and 24mm. A crop, in fact. That's why the distorsion renders differently the edge of the picture where the front of the camera is located.

Forget the conspiracy theory and do THINK, boys!

That's because these brands are part of the insignificant segment of market in Mr. Westfall view. They are the others, the little players, those inside the margin of error.
Is he right ? I think he is. Unfortunately. :(

Is it possible that the "DA super telephoto"-lens will be a DA*-lens?
Posted By huqedato
Replies: 27

No. All Pentax starred zooms have constant aperture.

A DA* super-tele with a constant f4 would be extremelly expensive and evade the actual DA (relatively cheap) lens line. How many of you would afford a 3k or 4k USD zoom ?

I think at a DA 2xx-4yy mm/f4-6.3 formula instead. With an reasonable price between 1000 and 1500 USD. Perhaps something in the same category as this one.
