Ricoh GR III

I’ve long pondered whether I should by a DA21 for my K-5 or rather a GRii. If the GRiii lens is as good as the predecessors, the choice is getting easier. My K-5 might be replaced by a K-1 one day, and then a GR series camera will be more useful than a DA21 lens :)

I just hope it will be a little less bulky than the Sigma 105/1.4 :)

RICOH ANNOUNCES AVAILABILITY OF HD PENTAX-D FA★50mm F1.4 SDM AW STAR-SERIES LENS

Haha, I had to read it at least four times before I spotted the error.

Except for that error, I like the way they announce this, with the special site for star lenses.

Good times are coming, but not for our wallets!

Aperture’s CA correction certainly can add enormous amounts of CA if I accidentally use it wrong (but that would be lateral CA then).

I really wouldn’t expect it to do that. It doesn’t do it for e.g. my DA70. And it doesn’t recognise the lens. Also, Aperture hasn’t been updated by Apple for ages (it’s EOL), although the underlying RAW engine is part of the system and gets updates.

Are you sure you aren’t accidently applying some CA correction here?

Well, either you need (new) glasses or you haven’t really tried a high-resolution display. I write this on an iMac 5K and after having used that for about three years now, I’m not able to go back to lower resolution.

Except that they should have odd focal lengths. How about DFA 19/2.9, DFA 23/2.6, DFA 43/1.7 (I bet there’ll be a new 43!) and DFA 79/1.9?

Are you sure the 70-200/4 “steals” any development time from the 85/1.4? Maybe they need the time to make the 85 perfect anyway.

Anyway, I wish they had the ability to release tons of lenses within a very short time frame like they had when MX and ME were released back in 1976. AFAIR, they released an impressing amount of lenses in the new M-series together with the two cameras. I bought the MX one year later, and the plethora of lenses was an important reason for choosing Pentax, although, as a teenager, I would need some time before I could afford to buy my second lens (after the M-50/1.7 kit lens). Its limited lens options were my main reason for selling my Topcon Unirex and switch to Pentax instead of buying a second lens for the Topcon.

Ricoh to Exhibit DFA*50 and DA*11-18 at CP+

Wow, that 11-18 sure triggers my LBA.

'This lens was developed as a "new-generation star lens", which drastically reviewed internal standards in order to respond to future camera performance improvements”’- are they hinting at very high resolution in the next high end APS-C camera?

Anyway, I guess the price will be stiff, so I might pass and try to save for a K-1 instead...

Ah, parents nowadays, you’re so spoiled! I used my LX with the M-50/1.7 and 400 ASA film when my kids were small. So I had to choose between too shallow DOF with moving targets and manual focus or too slow shutter with moving targets :lol: I still got some good shots, and I got very good at holding my camera steady (shooting handheld at 1/15 without SR)!

My Optio W10 was a quite interesting camera 11 years ago, I got quite a few comments when I swam around with what didn't look like the sturdy camera it was (and is - it still works!).

This, however, is just boring.
