A 18-55 WR DC and 55-300 WR DC, together with new AF system could make me sell my Nikon stuff....

Good for you Ben! The D600 is fantastic camera...

I switched to D600 with 28/50/85 1.8G lenses a year ago, for reasons very much like yours... except that i photograph my family, a task to important to me that i could not stay with Pentax.

Though, in my enthusiast heart, Pentax still rocks!

Excellent Winder! The 24 is nice!

I have two SB700, they're awesome and small. So easy to work with. I run them wirelessly in CLS with Aokatec triggers, works very well for a fraction of the price the big radio brands cost!

I believe the 50 1.8G is a gem, for the price, its a treasure... But i can understand if bad copies turned you of.

The 28... oh my... I think the words would be (like what J.Sherman said about DA 15 Ltd) "The Nikon AF-S 28 1.8G controls my mind" :cool:

Haha, ok, 20 minutes is nothing... took me months to read up and understand the CLS thingy... still havent learned it 100%
The thing is... while one is reading and learning, its easy just to let the CLS do the work and forget about it. Your D800 as well as my D600 has nice new flash comp options where you can adjust the ambient and flash exposure individually. Nice!

Wired: Give the CLS thing another chance. I found it to be fantastic once you understand it.

I really think you should read up on the differences between the 50 1.8G and 1.4G... many have switched from the 1.4G to 1.8G

The 1.8G focuses faster... and there was something about bokeh to... i dont remember what it was though.

Lovely images in this thread as usual, i keep coming in here once or twice every week just to look at all the good photography... and of course... the "pentax new and rumors" section :D most entertaining as always


Those images are truly wonderful Simon, lovely set and great PP. You're taking family photography to a very high level :)

Pentax K-500 Specs Confirmed by Pentax (viewfinder, batteries, etc.)

+1 on Aristophanes!


I dont see the problem, a camera brand must have a entry level segment...
K-500 is not the camera for most of us, but it may be the camera for a huge load of beginners and people starting to interest themselves in photography for various reasons.
I started with a Canon EOS 350D, it learned me about photography. I then moved on. Its what people do, they start cheap and learn.

I dont really understand the negative attitudes against the lower class cameras... we need them, even though we dont buy them. We need people to by them, because without that, we cant have any upper end cameras.

You all should help Pentax sell cameras instead of complaining

Explain Ogl, i really want to know... :) Do you think I am uneducated?

Or are you taking about the Philistines or the Philistinism or maybe Philistine

You have the right to think a product sucks. But you should be very careful with what you write on a forum if it has cultural/religious/racial opinions.

This camera delivers more features than the competition will offer for the same price, this is a great followup to the K-x, K-r line.... nuff said. Get over it Ogl, this is entry/mid level... other things will come.

Another vote for Tammy 28-75... got mine for 200$
I had a really crappy example that had been through hell and back, but it delivered... and it was small and light.
Not going to show you the 100% crops as Jay already did that... the lens is sharp.
Must be the most bang for the buck zoom lens for FX. Not the fastest AF though (bim version)
Its a really useful lens, nice mfd and ok bokeh at times.
The new VC version seem to be a fantastic lens, but i suggest you go to a shop and try it, its BIG and heavy. The old one is really small and light.

These are just family snaps. The reason for me to use the lens was to find out wich primes i would like in the FX format. As it turned out i love the 28mm fov, thanks to the Tammy, so now i have the 28/50/85 Nikon trio.

@ 28mm










@ 60-75mm

Fine :)

I use camera profile standard, and add a few things in LR to it. Really makes a difference! That Adobe profile just doesnt do D600 files any good.

Regarding colors, lenses seem to do the most effect. The 28 1.8G has a fantastic color and contrast, the files i get from it is just amazing. The 50 and 85 i need to work more with in LR.

Winder: Would be really cool if you'd explain more on what exactly happened that seem to change your mind about the D600 :)
As i recall from this thread and others you have had some serious doubts about the D600.

Me... im crazy in love... since i got the 28 1.8G even more. I have the complete 1.8G prime trio now and it rocks my world, but the 28 is a craaaazy freaky lens! Really blows my mind... Kinda in a "The DA 15 controlls my mind" way, seriously... But the 28 is even more creative in its dof and MFD.

Selling my FA*s...

Selling FA*'s is a shame... i would keep them if i was Pentax enthusiast... everyone keeps saying: Tools, you are the photog, its your eyes, you you you you...

But for me... 20% of the hobby is gear obsession, and for me Pentax is such a brand. I went for the FA Ltd's and realised that "this is pentax for me". Didnt care of FF vs APS-C then...

But then i switched brand.. :P

But now, sad to say... taking pictures is the only interest, i have no emotional attachment to my Nikon gear...

I would like and Pentax FF milc... but they'd better make it with a darn good evf to, or hybrid rangefinder/evf... Fujifilm's implementation in the x-pro 1 is nice but from what i read it has its quirks. But still, its a nice idea for an enthusiast camera.

Nikon and Pentax is overlapping each other with release. Of course the next Pentax will be better than D7100 (except AF maybe :P) But by then, Nikon will have the D7200 on the way...

Whichever... Think DigitalRev's comparison is fair, and the sarcastic/ironic humor about Pentax as a brand was just right and punchy. In the end Kai sums it up well, even admitting his own (and every ones) brand loyalty as a barrier.
