Better camera for video than K-01
Posted By grispie
Replies: 25

I bought a Nikon z6 for that reason and put my Pentax m lenses on it with adapter. works like a charm but of course a more expensive solution..

for what it is worth, the k3 is really a tad better than k01 in my opinion. the k3 is more defined and loses less detail in wide scenery. With the right usage you can get decent results with it. Like you say: the loss of detail is the k01 biggest flaw
The software stabilisation is also a tad better than the k01 in is useful in wide-angle sceneries. less wobbling

Pentax K-1 Mark ii user, feeling frustrated about being stuck with only the kit lens

Reading the above, i think the OP deserves a break and some of his sentence does really reflect the pentax world. We don't know what the market situation in India is, we know financial resources are limited, we don't know if he is able to test some of the older lenses in that part of the world.

Buying a product/brand that you have not fiddled with extensively is always a plunge. And we all do that from time to time. No shame in that. I rather feel somewhat happy the poster took that plunge with pentax despite the probable easier presence of brands like nikon / canon or fuji in that area. Obviously something must have triggered him to prefer pentax over competitors. Rightfully imo. I still prefer a pentax body over others if only for the ergonomics.

reading all the previous answers,
i hope you got rid of this imo false buyers remorse..

I'd love to have a K1 with 'kitlens' to combine with legacy lenses i gathered over the years.
Some that really shine on my K3 are fa24-50, M28 3.5 ,M85 1.8 and M135 3.5...

I have both.
don't use them very much but they are both nice lenses.
the 3.5 striked me indeed as a bit sharper and especially a bit nicer rendering (on digital..).

on a 28mm, 2.8 vs 3.5 would be secondary for me.

will do tonight.
Yes, it has fringing. That is why i submitted this one. But in my opinion very little and easy to fix in a very tricky situation.
trees against backlight are also tricky.
One has to admit the rendering of this lens is awesome though.

---------- Post added 06-18-20 at 09:57 AM ----------



exactly my thinking. if it is not really striking at first sight, i can't be bothered with fringing.

On your 2nd point, well, i can understand the op going from three lenses to two when travelling..
the 12-24 range is ideal for that. the lens does really well on all sides of the range.

For travel, taking the 12 24, my 17 70 and my 55 300 is also too much. So i usually take 17 70, 55 300 or 12 24 and da55 300 and some prime in between that i end up not using..

To be honest, i am surprised with the question
maybe i am fortunate but never felt it being a problem with this lens. certainly not anything like my fa31

if any help, this link is a recent pic with it and guess this is what you'd call a rather risky shot. very contrasty with backlight.
this is what i got.. didn't really correct a lot.

K 100d vs k10d
Posted By grispie
Replies: 27
Views: 1,631
i guess this list is according your budget no?

I had some of the pentax models, among which the k100d as first dslr
I remember i really liked the rendering of it. It was also pretty good in higher iso at the time and some of the images i made with the kitlens were tacksharp.
I was a nice combo..

I think the decisionmaker between something like k100d or k10d,
it's also about the size, the batteries, size viewfinder.. things mentioned already by other people.
I'd be inclined to get a k10d. I had the k20d. Absolutely loved that camera.

In todays world, if your intention(?) is to start cheaply in pentax world, i'd be on the lookout for something more recent.

In small size and low weight, the k r (which i still use today), hands down beats the k100d.
In larger size and weight, a k5 or k3..

---------- Post added 06-12-20 at 01:23 PM ----------



It's just my thought:
but i think a lot of this "wonderful" has to do with the fact that is was the first digital slr experience for a lot of people.
Sentiment...
I think the technological advantages of getting something more recent, outweighs by far any 'possible' favorible sensor output from something like the k100d.

Da* 300mm f4 or 55-300 PLM with 1.4x teleconverter

this, i guess..

the da300 (combined or not with tc) is a very different experience from 55 300. It's simply a different league.
both can be used aside the other. if you can afford it, it is a highly recommended lens.. real pleasure both in use and IQ

for what it's worth, i absolutely love the field of view of my fa31 1.8 on apsc.
I always thought a bit wider would be even nicer. Such as 24mm 1.4... yes
I wouldn't go 16 in your case since you have the da 16-45... still a great lens

can't comment specific on the samyang IQ.

I used to have the 16 45. nice lens. Sharp but a bit flat, dull rendering.
I now have the da 17 70 as allround lens. I do like it much more, for what it is(!): an allround lens with a very nice rendering to the images and a more useful focal range.

For portraits, a fixed focal with large aperture is worth the investment.

nice result indeed at this focal/shutter combi.

What about battery life?
Your photo experience with the batteries will translate to the video experience..
Things i heard & read about the xh1 are not so favorable (?)
tnx

cool, i have handled a z6 a couple of times but only the xt3. z6 felt nice indeed. For me it would be the better camera i guess as it seems nice to use those old lenses at their intended focal. but it is also twice the price of a xh1 right now.. although buying them with one good lens (kitlens for z6 & new 16-80 for fuji) will bring them closer.
I have the feeling though if i'd want to sell the z6 later on, it might be easier to do so.

not sure if you filmed with them:
did i understand from the net correctly that the xh1 does not have zebra's?
how do you feel about the ibis on both cameras? Is there one that sticks out..

maybe i should change the title to experience with a fuji xh1 and pentax mf lenses.
Seems like a nice cam for use with them and for video with the ibis. Only not FF as the z6. But also reflected in its current price.
