More skate images from late yesterday afternoon. All in front of the Mayor's building. The young woman is Julia and the young man is Thomas. They and the rest of the skate crew have accepted my presence ... in exchange for copies of my images. I gave Thomas a USB key that was loaded yesterday from a previous shoot. All taken with my Fujifilm X-T3 and the XF 35/2 lens. Post-production B&W via Darktable 3.

K3III Delayed... indefinitely

Really too bad for the delay, and this is a DSLR that would not interest me now. I still shoot with the K-1 for the FF and my film lens collection.

As for APS-C, I now shoot Fujifilm (X-T3, X-100F, etc.), and I will probably never go back to an APS-C DSLR. And I am afraid that even new K-3 iii will not even be "competitive" against the (old) X-T3 across many parameters, once we see the final specifications.

Please do not get me wrong, I still like a lot and use Pentax, but staying out of the mirror-less market will be a serious long-term strategic miscalculation. I know that their resources are quite limited, but the window to invest in R&D and newer product(s) has long been slammed shut ... and this has been compounded by the Covid upheaval(s).

Very tempted and confused at the US pricing ... where the addition of the new 27/2.8 WR to an X-E4 body is ... only $200 ?!

Salut PBF,

Have you done any close focus work and/or wide open work with your 50/1.2 ? ... any initial impressions, 'cause I am quite curious.

I can relate with Eddie ... I visited the Fuji boards and was not enthralled about it all ... Still like PF and need to shoot the K-1 a bit more.

Cool, if you are in the neighborhood ... please keep me posted!

Missed or just glanced at the info on the new 18mm ... I am drooling over the new 10-24, but really too big for my tastes and way out my budget. For that kind of dough, there's other (Fuji) gear that I would opt for ...
