I have not. But I did get a "Not in stock" notification from B&H. Of course that could change any day now (hopefully).

a quick check at B&H shows the Nikon and Canon variants are backordered. The sony version is not yet released. So I'd say the Pentax version is being put on the back burner once again so Sigma can fill other orders.

If you click this link from many posts ago you will find this:

"The latest we’ve heard from our parent company is that, barring any further production setbacks, the Sony version is going to be released in early May and the Pentax in early June."

I just checked B&H and the Sony version is still listed as "available for preorder" so it apparently has not landed yet. That tells me that there were apparently some further production setbacks.

Just my interpretation...

Making this lens in K mount would probably cause them to stop production on one or both of the Canikon versions. As long as the Canikon versions are selling stronger than the projected sales of the K mount version it only makes good business sense for them to keep the Canikon versions in production. I'm sure they realize the demand is there for a K mount version and it will be available when its in Sigma's best interest financially to do so.

Economics sucks...

O-FC1 FluCard Full Review and Guide
Posted By Mr Hyde

I really don't want to seem nitpicky but the review says the O-FC1 will work with any modern browser. Is this true? The Docs for Flucard say only Safari and Chrome are supported.

I have a Windows Phone and a Microsoft Surface 2 tablet so I don't have Safari or Chrome as an option.

I have read that someone tested the O-FC1 on a Windows Phone and they couldn't get it to work properly but I was wondering if anyone has tried switching the phone's browser to desktop mode instead of mobile mode? Also, has anyone tried connecting to the Flucard via Internet Explorer 11? My Surface 2 tablet has both the WIN 8 tile version of internet explorer and the desktop version. The tablet Runs Windows 8 RT and not Windows 8, Chrome isn't compatible with Windows 8 RT so I cant install it.

If I cant get the Flucard to work with my existing devices I would consider getting an inexpensive android tablet just to run the Flucard. Any suggestions on a not too expensive small android tablet that would run Chrome? (sorry, I really don't know anything about android)

Has anyone found a good acra-swiss plate for the K-3? I'm looking for one with an anti twist lip.

WB issue in LR 5 with K-3 DNG

I had the same or similar problem with DNG files from K-3 with Auto WB. I had to correct the WB in LR using the eyedropper. The initial previews visible when importing looked normal but as they updated, the got that green color cast. I also noticed that there is no Adobe Standard camera profile available, only embedded. Oh, I forgot to add that I had also had the camera to "multi auto" WB.

a professional will use whatever he needs and feels comfortable with to accomplish his goal/task. If someone needs specific gear to make himself/herself 'feel' professional, then they probably aren't very professional.

I think to be a 'professional' anything, you would be making a substantial part of your income doing whatever you are professional at.

I hope this is correct. I was searching the Ricoh website for further info but all I could find was a reference that it worked with Android and iOS devices. No mention of working with MAC or PC (Laptops)

From what I have read, the FLU card will only work with iOS and Android devices so it would seem that connecting to a MAC or PC laptop computer is not an option. Am I missing something?

Canon and Nikon users will still say the K-3 sucks if for no other reason than it doesnt say Canon or Nikon on it.

From day 01, the yellow K-01 reminded me of my car, but I couldn't justify the expense. But after this latest price drop I just had to get it. So far its been fun to use and I have even got a few nice comments on the camera as well.

I have several Pentax lenses but I will never buy a Pentax lens at the current prices. If the price policy stays in effect I'll be looking to Sigma for my next lens purchase

Did they repair your lens or replace it? Pentax replaced my lens completely with a new one. Mine was in for it's 4th repair.
