Amateur Photographers (UK) Predicts End for Pentax

The marketing in many european countries are nonexistent unfortunately.

When I'm out shooting jobs I get a lot of people say "Wow, a Pentax! I haven't seen one of those in ages" It's a shame really. Pentax, Ricoh, needs to invest in marketing more. Even just social media. Make their bloody Instagram more active. There are tonnes of pentax shooters worldwide. They share pictures. The problem is, not a lot of professional photographers use Pentax cameras. So getting the nicer looking pictures can be hard to find. But I definitely feel that Pentax/Ricoh aren't doing their bit on Socia Media at the least.


Social Media isn't even expensive to work with as long as you're willing to do the work yourself.

If I can be blunt. I find the image a bit busy. too many details. too sharp. Too many sharp pixels. I would probably prefer it if only some details had that leading sharpness/depth and the other perhaps bit more blurry, if it makes sense.

I'm not sure where to look in the image.

I use a Peak Design Pro Capture which uses the Arca Swiss plate. It's a perfect fit, and it hangs ever so elegant off of my backpack shoulder strap. It's a life saver

DP Review puts K-1 Mark II as second worst camera of 2018

Honestly, before Chris and whatshisname joined DPR, DPR hated Pentax. it's a shame that they followed that agenda. It's always been clear that there's some kind of hatred going on. And them going "who here loves pentax?" as honest as a politician.

TCSTV always gave honest reviews about pentax. I.R. gives honest reviews like so many others, non biased regardless of brand, just not DPR.

To full or not to full (frame) - that is the question

imho, buying the K1mkii was THE best camera purchase I have ever made. Going from K3 to K1mkii it felt like the images had so much more depth and color to them. hard to say exactly what it was. They just felt magical somehow. Unless it's the size of the camera, I would take the step up. It also means you can invest in FF lenses. That said, surprisingly a lot of APSC lenses are FF capable whether they state it or not.

I shoot both FF and M34rds which is considered a half frame compared to a FF due to the 2x crop factor, I suppose.

The major comparison between the two, is that the smaller sensor wastes the information/light from the image circle the larger lenses produce. Seeing as the sensor cannot see the outer parts of the image circle, it crops what could have been produced.

Picture quality: my M43rds is 20mpix and K1 crop is 15mpix there isn't any dip in quality at all, when in good light. Once light drops, it becomes a case of which sensor has the best technology.

I take a lot of pictures with the smaller sensor which nobody would be able to tell weren't taken on a FF camera.

I agree that the k1mkii has been one of the most perfect cameras for me. It also sparked my photo joy again.

Currently I'm shooting both K1mkii and Olympus OMD EM1mkii both superb cameras though very very different. Which one do I prefer? it totally depends on the situation

KP custom,DFA*85/1.4 CP+ Exhibit

So with all this talk about how the DFA 50mm is amazing optically?

I owned it and sold it, because it was amazing, but at the same time. You can't see that the glass is better. I've compared it to a lot of lenses and even my friend who shoots canon and uses the L f/1.2 they do. I couldn't say that the DFA 50 at any point was worth being such a huge huge lens. I know that the 85mm will be too, but tbh for the narrower focal length and it's purposes, it makes more sense. The DFA 50 is imho way too big for what it brings.

I can't wait for the 85/1.4 it's really THE lens I've been waiting for. That said, as time goes by with Pentax being ultra slow in releasing this. All other competition is both getting cheaper and already have the lenses available. It's a shame. And even then I'm still torn if I should still stick to pentax. I have a dream that they have been hiding a mirrorless unit from us, with state of the art (sony-esque) AF performance.

Seeing focus point?

I agree it's quite annoying. The inner lines in the viewfinder are also so thin that if it's slightly dim, I often can't tell the center point unless I spam AF everywhere to get it to light up. it would be nice to be able to have it constantly lit or more visible.

I shoot the K1ii both for paid work and leisure and I don't get why anyone gives it hate. The Images are beautiful, sharp and detailed. I shoot up to 6400 because I tend to shoot with flash if it gets really dark. The camera holds up perfectly.

I use it for portraits too and yeah it can be hard to catch critical focus wide open. Other than that, I love the lens.

I tried C1 which yeah can create some good pictures, but the workflow was just too different from LR, so I switched back to LR where I feel I have more control. Simply due to knowing the software better. It's a shame C1 is so damn expensive.

K1 to K1 Mark II or not II

mk2 feels way more decisive with AF, faster as well.

Currently I shoot a lot of low lit venues, often at high ISO and the noise is barely there. The IQ is amazing to work with, something I would never consider before the K1 was launched. Of course the K1 (not mk2) performs imo just as well at high ISO, the differences are minuscule, while there, not groundbreaking.
