I agree but the mark up on the rebadged tamron lenses seems a bit of a rip off. Yes you get a couple of extra coatings and afew extra seals, but come on were talking a few dollars not hundreds.

Hi, do you have any pics taken with the 77mm. I'm interested but like to see some sample pics given the nick to the front element.

Similar to gullwing in that I'm also in the UK.

Hi, another k30 UK owner here, my first DSLR too. Its a crack in little camera and just feels so right in the hand. Get yourself down to SRS in Watford and have a look at all the old lenses that can fit your new camera.

I think Pentax desperately need to up there marketing. Zero marketing will lead to zero new customers, no matter how good the product.

I really like my bargain f35-70. Bang for buck its a stellar little lens. Nice range for general use and fairly sharp for the cost these are going for.

Looking to buy an affordable long reach telephoto, and wondering which is sharpest in the 150-270 range out of the following.

Tamron 70-300
Sigma 70-300 apo
Pentax 55-300 dal

Max budget is circa 100.

After it really for longer reach than my current 50-200 for shooting pics of my dogs running. Finding the 50-200 poor in terms if IQ.

I think the idea of calling the new ff model "pro 1" is actually quite a good idea, much better than some meaningless no.

Hi from Nottingham. I think the build of Pentax SLRs tends to be better than Nikon. But then tbh the AF is probably not quite on the same level. There's some very good deals on the k5iis and the k50 ATM. Both of which would be a big step up from your Fuji bridge, and give you some pennies left for a couple of lenses.

Or you could opt for the ks2 which is a closer fit to the d5300. Pentax cameras also have two control wheels so you can easily control both aperture and shutter speed. The d5000 series only has one wheel so you'd get more control with the pentax bodies

Not up to the pf review standard, lacking in any real assesment really a repeat of the spec sheet. BTW I'd hardly call it unbiased when its written by the mod of the UK Pentax forum.

Hi from Nottingham, glad to hear your enjoying your k3. You could get hold of an 18-55 wr quite cheap from the pu site or fleabay and get out and enjoy the spring. Bradgate should be nice and quiet at the moment for some landscapes.

Looking at that display, if its a legit screenshot it looks like only an 11 point AF system.

Do you have any plans to introduce your new FF sensor into a fixed lens body. (i.e. updated GR?)

A new updated gr could potentially rock. If it has better AF, touchscreen focus and WiFi. Could be really interesting.

Whatever is announced, and no matter how much of an improvement. DPR will still slag off Pentax till the cows come home, or until Pentax drop of a wheelbarrow of dollars at there office.

Just hope the other press are a bit more balanced and fairer with their coverage.

FF GR is very much possible.

Just maybe?, Ricoh would consider a FF GR too help spread the cost of the FF sensor over a couple of bodies.

Would be interesting to compare this to something like the Sony RX1, the Sigma dp's or even the Fuji X100T.

Though I reckon the cost would be pretty eyewatering.

tbh, for my needs in the next couple of years the midrange new camera looks fine. But for the health of Pentax as a brand I'd like to see them be more of a presence in the market, though then I guess that would push used lens prices up too.
