That's very nice indeed ... much cropping needed?

Here in the UK our summer weather has finished, it's dark by 5pm and wet during the day so my 150-450mm has all but been put away for the next 6 months.

Which then makes me begin to wonder if the 11-18mm f/2.8 is really delayed due to manufacturing problems. After all, who is going to pay that sort of money for brand new tech to put on 3+ year old tech. Maybe the 11-18mm will be released with a "new" K-3 or maybe never.

K3ii replacement

Not really kept up with this thread as there has been no announcement of any work to a K-3II successor but having just had a quick skip through I have to say .....

I prefer the thumbstick on my Canon to the wheel on my K-1. I also don't understand why they needed a wheel to assign functions to another wheel when the could have done that via the info/rear screen menu and let us assign functions to both wheels. :confused:

Oh and can anyone tell me why I have to be in single spot focus before I can pick my fps using the directional pad? or is there another way?

I know one thing, I have spent a hell of a lot more of my own cash on Pentax gear than Kenspo ever did and if I left I doubt anyone would even realise I was gone never mind give me a 14 page thread about why I moved to another brand :lol:

You have to find one first :(

Saying that the Irix 150mm f/2.8 macro could be nice.

Had you said cameras I would have agreed, however you didn't ... you specifically said "Ricoh wouldn't announce something they didn't intend to release." ;)

It comes to something when the only thing Pentax users have to get excited about is a Irix 150mm macro lens.

Quite looking forward to seeing if it's a replacement for my Sigma 180mm f/3.5 macro.

So I'm presuming "IF" we do get a K3-II replacement announcement next year then it will just be a confirmation that they are hoping to have it out sometime in 2020?

I know there are limited resources and I know Pentax are only a small player in the market now but it pains me to say it, ... they really aren't doing themselves any favours and by the time they get a new camera out they will have a much smaller user base than it is now.

As a side note I would love to know how many active forum users there were 5 years ago compared with today.

Hi Eric,

Don't get me wrong, the 150-450mm is still excellent on the K-1 (yes I have done focus adjustment on both bodies) but I find the Sigma just as sharp on full frame plus it has the extra focal length from 50-150 and 450-500mm and it focuses a lot closer. I don't think the Sigma is as quick to focus (no limiter) but if I'm going out to shoot fast moving subjects I tend to take the K-3II anyway.
