Is k-5 a failure?

It is neither exaggerated nor inaccurate and this disaster is far worse than any I have ever heard of with any other brand in the past 40 years.

BTW, don't bother telling me what I can or can't say or think. That dog don't hunt! Of course, you can ban me from the forum because I passed the fanboy test.

Cheers.

As a K5 owner, I say YES IT IS A FAILURE.

It is plagued with an inordinate number of problems, many of which Pentax has not even acknowledged or addressed, and the speed of handling these matters is deplorable.

I will never buy another Pentax product. Period.

Abstract Graffiti or Art?

On second thought, maybe it's not art:

1. The artist broke the rule of thirds.
2. Paint probably isn't archival quality.
3. Color theory is not consistently applied.

Just sayin'. :rolleyes:

I'm not sure but I bet it's gonna be BIG.

I mean REALLY BIG. Like so big that it will make other things seem small by comparison.

Oh yeah, and it's gonna be really important. So important that other things will seem unimportant by comparison.

Just wait and see. It's so real you can almost smell it.

Trust me. I drive a pick-up.

Well, it took an artist to make it, so I guess it is art.

I don't think it takes a geek to do a screenshot.

IMHO, the only way to keep them from being stolen is to not put them on the web. Putting photos on the web, in any form, is sort of like leaving dollar bills on your front porch at night and expecting to find them there in the morning.

Head to head shoot out Pentax 645D vs. Canon 1Ds Mark III

I think I should do a shootout between my John Deere Tractor and Ford Pickup.

Conclusion:
They both have their strengths and weaknesses; the pickup is faster at 0-60, but the tractor can plow the field.

Also, don't forget about sales tax, which varies from state to state. Sales tax is a totally different animal from income tax.

You should also be concerned with Pentax quality control. See the range of problems, most of which are have been officially acknowledged by Pentax.

Live Display question

You can use a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable to see Live View on a television, or probably any display that supports HDMI input.

Not sure if it is important, but when you do this, Live View on the camera is no longer available, but all of the camera controls work as usual to produce a Live View on the HDMI device--very cool for some studio work.

Save the sick day until AFTER the camera arrives. Otherwise you've just blown a sick day to watch the batter charge.

I would definitely wait until all of the issues are addressed. There are more user-verified problems than you mentioned in your post:

If they don't improve their quality control and customer relations, they may not be around in 5 years.
