I purchased all my latest equipment through e-commerce. I did it with great saving of time and money. The service is fast and I could choose the best prices and the best offers. If it were to change in this way I would have no difficulty in continuing to shop online.

I don't think that Pentax's production, both of lenses and cameras, is much higher in number than that of a good watchmaking Maison. It employs a few hundred employees, all highly specialized. So I think we are adopting a policy of this kind at Pentax. Moving factories and optimizing resources would result in niche products.

Advice? - Pick one only: D-FA 24-70mm f2.8 vs D-FA* 50mm f1.4

It seems to me that here you choose the Star optics for its high definition. The zoom does not give a bad image, so you could combine it with an FA 50mm f.1.4 that has an excellent bouchet, without bothering various M Series or Takumar. In addition, this is particularly light and in addition has the autofocus coupled.
It's not a bad lens, but if you're just looking for high definition....

If you are on the go, zooming will be your ideal companion. You can use it as a wide angle and as a medium telephoto lens. With the 50mm you can photograph with only one type of perspective, certainly beautiful photos, but limited by the focal length. If you are one who is satisfied...

Pentax K1000 shutter problems

I don't think a repairer can fix your machine in such a short time. Maybe you should bring the digital camera, or if you are familiar with micro-mechanics you can fix the machine yourself.
Once to check the shutter, the television screen was framed and, with the caseback open, the curtains of the camera could be seen sliding and letting an oblique strip be seen. Maybe there are tutorials on the net.

I don't know if my poor English could have clarified the way to check the shutter.

End of SLRs?

In an interview with Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun, Canon CEO Fujio Mitarai confirmed that the EOS-1D X Mark III will be the company's latest SLR camera. All efforts will be channelled towards the Mirrorless system.
Only Pentax will remain to carry on the Reflex discourse. They said that even the rangefinder cameras were destined to disappear, but still some remain and are sold at a high price because it is considered a cult object as well as an excellent machine.

Happy Holidays to All. I have a question to ask: what are the cameras currently in production by Pentax beyond the K1II and K3III? Has the production of all other cheaper cameras been suspended? From the Ricoh website I could not understand.

Pentax Lenses and Problems

Thank you for your comforting words! I thought I was the one who had always been lucky to buy my lenses.
I was worried about a possible new purchase of the 21mm f.2.4, having read the bad reviews in a review of this lens, then corrected in excellent, having replaced the defective copy with a fully functional one.
It seemed that one in two copies was with badly centered lenses or with other defects and that you had to check it and then have to send it back .

Pentax Lenses and Problems

Health to All. Why do I read about so many new Pentax lenses that have alignment problems or not perfect definition and that are then returned or replaced? I have been taking photographs for 50 years, I have had dozens and dozens of optics and I have never encountered this problem. Have I been lucky, or do I have little ability to recognize lens defects? Thanks to those who can give me an answer.

I have always sold bodies and optics when I changed system, and in 45 years of photography I have changed many, but always keeping at least two camera bodies. Now in addition to the K1 and its lenses, I also use a Canon R with some lenses, mainly zoom.
