It's something I think about on a daily basis and should really be doing other things more productive. :)


Most of PHOTOUNIVERSE on Youtube is me talking about gear selection. After 5 years or more I had to quit because I felt I was saying the same things over and over, which I probably was. (People still email me asking for more videos though, so go figure.)

And just when you thought the waters were safe...

Thomas Heaton goes off and buys a Fuji XT3 with 10-24, 18-55 and 55-200. LOL!

So in Pentax that would be the KP and: 12-24, the Pentax 18-55 sucks, I've got one, so not sure about that, and the 55-300 WR or PL would work.

Easy except for the 18-55. The Fuji one is really good if you get a good copy.


(Disclaimer: I really don't care what Thomas Heaton uses, but his kit makes a convenient way to have a discussion regarding the comparison of various camera brands and their lens offerings.)

I was going to say that there wouldn't be much advantage to going FF, but you figured that out. The better bang for the buck would be a KP... :)

(I don't shoot the K1 as much as I thought I would, but hope springs eternal.)

Benefit of Mirrorless cameras with EVF -- 'Seeing' in black and white
Posted By Qwntm
Replies: 46
Views: 1,672
I find Pentax's ability to add just a touch of sepia to my jpegs much more of a benefit than a EVF that shows B&W. Or to put it another way, I don't miss the B&W EVF view when shooting Pentax, but do miss the touch of Sepia in my jpegs when I shoot Olympus.

When I do want a B&W preview with Pentax I hit Live view, when I want a touch of sepia with Olympus I have to edit every shot in post.

Not sure if the Nikon's allow for variable sepia addition, but that would be the first thing i would look for.

Gotta love AMAZON's shipping department. My 24-70 bought new came in a plastic bag. An unbreakable $10.00 oil filter wrench was shipped in 3 boxes with bubble wrap. My $70 case for my classical guitar was shipped in 2 boxes. The $1000.00 classical guitar was shipped in the box from the manufacturer with no padding as was smashed to heck, sent it back and ordered from Sweetwater which used bubble wrap and an outer box to ship.


Living in the country we use AMAZON a lot and I just have to scratch my head at the stuff I've seen them do. If they ever make returns harder, they're business would suffer greatly.

I know I have come full circle on that. After a few years shooting pretty exclusively on mirrorless, I now prefer a DSLR. The things I lost with the dslr were worth more to me than the things I gained with mirrorless.


Another thing that's interesting is that a dslr has the mirrorless functions built into the rear lcd with live view when I want to use something like exposure preview, but a mirrorless camera does not have an optical viewfinder for when I want that.

That, and black cameras were less likely to be seen in a reflection too.

The white lenses has to do with Canon and their fluoride lens elements. The fluoride elements were very sensitive to temperature changes and so Canon made the lenses white to help with them heating up. Of course if there is no fluoride elements in the lenses, it's just cosmetic these days.

I like then original, the poles add a sense of place for me and help to tell the story. But it's fine either way. The leash is part of the story too. Great expression on Doggo's face!

After thinking about this for a great while and taking into consideration all of the great comments and suggestions here, and what a lot of options there are, I think I am going to stick with the 28-105 for FF and use APS-c for anything wider than 28 or longer than 105. Now if Pentax goes crazy and actually releases a 70-200 f4, or 20mm f2.8 then I will re-access. But for now, the 28-105 covers probably 95% of everything I want FF to do.

Sometimes more is just more and not necessarily really that much more useful or helpful. :)

I do find it interesting that the new kids who are really good at putting a video together seem to be accepted as brilliant landscape photographers. I can name a few but I won't. I think Thomas is actually a pretty decent photographer, and his video skills are really great. he does put the time and effort in I have to give him that. I only used his kit as an example because it's what i would shoot if I was shooting Canon, though maybe not the 24-70 2.8, the F4 would probably be my choice there.

When I shot Mt Hood from Lost lake on a Hasselblad with 80mm and AGFA APX 25 developed in Rodinol 1:25 for 10 minutes, Thomas was probably 5 years old... Dang. It prints Gallery quality to 20x20 inches. The scan kinda sucks, but there it is. :)

Not really the "same" is it.


No warranty, dodgy return privileges, and no guarantee that a month from now you will be able to order another one with overnight shipping when your on a job in New Mexico and you drop your copy in a river.

It's 30 years as a working pro makes me think this way and it's why Canon and Nikon will overnight you gear if you're a Pro services member and know the right people.

Now, how important is it really these days? Not much! :)

(But it's still not the same thing. :) )

If in current production you can just go up to B&H and order one and get it in a few days. No searching for a used one or waiting for Pentax to finally actually make it. :)
