Three new cameras under development?

And even the first one is doable if you use an iPhone. You shoot in what is called a live photo, then you edit, go into effects, and you can choose motion blur.

And nowadays, with the iPhone 11 and 12 pro models, we can shoot in raw and have huge editing capabilities available to us. The photos you see here are completely doable on an iPhone, and even printable at very high-quality at 11 x 14.

Yes, DSLRs are better. But…

Just curious. The 20-40 is on a SPECTACULAR sale right now and I could rebuild my partially stolen kit with it, saving almost $400.00 cdn.

What do people think?

Stopped reading them completely after the 645 debacle. And after they trashed the limited lenses… A bunch of idiots. And corrupt ones at that.

IMHO.

Looks stunning, amazing features and high-ISO performance! Well done, Pentax! How long till the whining starts again? Do we wait, or do we just start right in? OK, I'll start: Even with this camera, Pentax is still doomed...DOOMED!!!

:eek:

Stay safe, everybody. And wear a mask; it's a diaper for your face, not a political statement.

Crazy?? DA 21 (SMC) vs HD 18-50mm for very small walk-around lens
Posted By Cambo

The SMC 21 is a magnificent lens. I have no idea why people sell them. Crazy.

If you can pick one up for 200, go for it! Basically the same great optics, and better starbursts than HD! And if you put one on, and lose the battery pack, you look like an old guy with a film camera, so no hassles.



Cheers,
Cameron

Yup. It is a truly GREAT but highly underappreciated lens. Don't forget it is SOMEWHAT wide, like a 30, so it takes a bit of getting used to. Here's two vastly different images, that shows it's strengths, which are many:

Wide angle for landscapes:





When you see this one full size, and the original format on a really good 4K Mac monitor, it is almost 3d!

Closeups for macro (focuses to just under 6"):





Contrast, sharpness, saturation off the charts. It DEFINITELY has the Limited 'magic'. But it takes some work, you have to know wide angle, to really get this thing. I've had some great lenses in my day, but this is possibly the greatest.

Don't miss my massive old FA*28-70 or my FA* 24 F2 one little bit.

Zoom with your feet! F5.6 to 8 and you don't even have to focus!

Cameron

If I had to choose just one lens forever, this would be it. See my thread about travelling with it in a kit, and I wound up using it 95% of the time. Focuses to 6" or less, the rest of the time, zoom with your feet. Teeny, leave your battery pack at home and just carry a spare battery or thew AA adapter.

The lens that suprised you the most. - Page 7 - PentaxForums.com

That would be faster than their shorter Limited lenses.
