Me neither. The author says that he liked it quite a lot (sharpness, CA, color rendition).

There's one review on the pentaxian forum as well, but it's in german. You have to be registered to see the pictures though: https://www.pentaxians.de/40456504nx51499/lens-clubs-f46/ricoh-xr-rikenon-fi...ub-t23186.html Maybe that helps.

Cheers,

Sometimes I wonder how photographers could get sharp and well focused shots in pre-autofocus / film days.

Wish darktable's developers would be open to this as well ;) But great that rawtherapee will support it. PDCU looks a little bit out-dated by now, to say the least.

How bad/good is Pentax AF compared to other systems (using price for comparisons)?

Good post, Norm. Exactly how I feel about these discussions. Today it all seems to be a question of measurement of technological features, not of technique or photographic skills.

Pentax Firmware updates vs Mobile App

Hi Pewter,

it was joergens.mi who said that tasks must be implemented in firmware, not me :-) But of cause this is true, even if it depends on the degree this has to be done. Concerning focusstacking it would also be possible to let the firmware only do the collection of images You would like to send to your app and let then do the rest by your app.

Not quite sure if I understand you. The OP said that functionality would be implemented in Your smartphone's app and NOT in Your camera. Since you're free to use it and since you can turn off WIFI why would You bother? Concerning the api/focusstacking I think it would be possible to let the camera do the shooting and process the pictures on Your smartphone.

Wasn't it to be expected that the FA limiteds could be used at their actual focal lenght since they are FF too? Or do I get something wrong?

You're right, language issues play a major role in misunderstandings, but this could also have been the case in asahiflex's reaction to ogl. And he literally is quite right: there ain't no such thing as a Pentax version of D5. I'll never get the true essence of brand fetishism I think, people get upset so quickly when talking about /defending their gear.

I think ogl's reply is valid since it's a little daring to say that Pentax AF in K-1 might be better than everything else without even knowing the specs. Dreaming is allowed of cause :)

Yes, right, but to tell the truth it's both thats needs to be done. Maybe not for You and me, who are already Pentaxians, but for potential new customers, and customers think also in a visual way. A company with "imaging" in it's name should take more care of this. These are only minor complains, and the site seems in a permanent state of change, so we don't know whats next. Don't get me wrong, it's not the "I am.." bull... from Nikon that I want, it's a more professional and up-to-date look.
But now off for "Merry X-mas" everybody! Have nice days.

Yes, right, totally sharp. But sharpness isn't what I am talking about, it's rather the kind of presentation that's my concern, and here I dare to say that I would expect a little more. The pictures of the camera are cool, the rest isn't so much.

C'mon, You must be kidding! I don't think the allusion to the LX was meant as installing a retro feeling. I rather read it as "milestone" history timeline, which it undenyingly is. I guess retro nowadays looks a lot different than taking an old picture. The effort they make with pentax.com is great, no doubt about it, but the images lack behind a little.

I'm really astonished that Pentax doesn't care more about the quality of the pictures they post on pentax.com. For a flag-ship campaign they really should care more. The details we know up to now really sound great and promising, but the images are ...
Even the LX-Image looks like they took a scan from an neolithic product catalogue:)

what filtersystem

I'm using Cokin as well. Sometimes I have little problems with a certain color cast when using gradual ND-Filters together with polarizers, but I heard that this shall be history with their new "Nuance" product-line. Another plus is you can use some filters from other manufactures as well (Haida, for example, which I like quite a lot). So could start with their not too expensive P system and move to or add some filters from the nuance-system, which is compatible.

Why are You considering to start a new database? I don't think it's that complicated, not even the backups, if you stick to lr's default storage pattern. Maybe speed can be a pro, but thats depend on how many items you have in your current database. SQLIte itself is quite fast, but LR as the application retrieving data from it may become quite slow sometimes.

C'mon everybody, don't behave like children (even though christmas is not far away). Is it really likely that:
  1. you officially declare there will be a FF

  2. you already delivered two new FF lenses

  3. you show a prototype at some shows

  4. you introduced a new domain (pentax.com) for ff


and then you either produce a mirrorless or cancel the FF completely? I know there are people on PF who think Ricoh does not know how run a company, but that would be completly suicidal so it will not happen! Keep cool, people!
