To my mind, Pentax has been shooting itself in the foot competitively for too long by trying to undercut the opposition as a value proposition: - it hasn't stopped the complaints about areas in which Pentax lags behind, areas that can only be addressed by investment, and investment needs returns. People out there pay huge amounts for cameras and lenses by other manufacturers because they have the money, and that's what they want. Ricoh has to make a product that people want, which they have tried to do with the K-3iii. I think the alternative of keeping on producing comparatively cheap cameras is the one that guarantees not expanding outside an aging user base.

Not the technically best ever (apart from my own shortcomings, to me, the FA^400 has never seemed as good on digital as on film?) , but I liked the character of it - a European starling trying to access a feeder not made for it (K-3 + FA^ 400/5.6)

We were treated to a visit by a mature male sparrowhawk to our balcony as I was making supper. Fortunately I had my camera (K-3) to hand with the 70-200 attached - it was set to an unnecessarily high shutter speed ( I forgot to check in the excitement) which resulted in a higher ISO than I'd have chosen, and it had to be shot through a double glazed window, but bearing all that in mind, I'm very happy with the result.

For some ridiculous reason (too much lockdown?) I decided to see how still I could sit for a minute (70 seconds, actually) with the help of a small aperture, 10 stop ND filter and polariser - partly thinking of Victorian portraits, but I don't think the exposures were THAT long :D

He's one of those insanely prolific people that I don't know where to start with :) - a personal connection with some of someone's work certainly helps - that's what got me into Obie Oberholzer in South Africa, where my wife comes from.
