nice camera but in my opinion pentax is too conservative and cornering himself with his choice.


lens selection...people want fast primes, no sign of it. consumer zoom and slow pancake. the world has changed. take a fuji mirrorless system. it's small full of 1,4 glass full of fast lesions, pancake, sealed not. they released more lenses than pentax in the last 10 years in a bunch of years. k1 needs also glasses.

af: still old school...still not on par with even olympus and i suspect sony. this i s not addressed.

video: still so poor implementation. why? still no 60p, no is in video, no different frame and codec. every brand is improving in video pentax is going backward. i know pentax user are photo centric, me too mostly, but if you only think of present user pentax will never grow more than 2 3 % of market.

ricoh gr: where is the new 24 million camera who can sell like hotcakes?

i have 645d and have sharp images without all your work..things are two , you are blind or camera has problem.
mirror lock a good trip , best aperture and a good sharp eye or glasses, make using the 645z 300 5,6 a breeze.

i use the 645d with the 300 5,6 and with a much lighter equipment and no long lens support i never noticed all this shake..maybe is not 100% over sharp but i think is very good.
maybe for long lenses better those with tripod collar so weight is better balanced...long lens support is for very big lens.

yes sure, but for me is a mystery why they not implemented this for video, probably mirror problem? i don't know my m,7 had it and it was so good to have stabilized video, partially avoiding a rig, not totally...anyway planned to buy a camera for video also to use with pentax lenses, maybe a sony a7, even if i dislike as hell sony.

can somebody confirm no mechanical sr in video? for me it's a real bummer...i didn't expect the best video feature, the 4k, the xxx fps...but come on pentax!!! sometimes pentad makes me crazy,shooting in his foot for something the k7 could do...5 axes for video makes a big difference, see some olympus samples...why not allow ? i imagine has something to do with warming sensor or i don't know other serious problem. i really expected this feature.

suspect a 24 and 85 both 1,8 with the same spec...in my opinion it could be ana mazing kit 24 45 85 1,8....great quality at good price.

the 15-30 is also amazing...and most important it takes filter with normal lee filter kit, the nikon 14-28 needs the more expensive system.

i wanted say that if you can use the 16-50 in full frame mode, you will have lot of cut , and a usable image that will resemble probably a 24 mm -40.
i ' don't know if it could be , or the k1 won't let you use the cropd lens in ff mode.

it's interesting that the k1 is two camera in one, ff and pass. so you can still use the apsc lenses and the new ff.
you stil have 16 million pixel. i'm curios to see how much image you can take out from a 16-50 for example...with 36 million you can heavily crop and have a usable image.
and we are talking about a 16-50 2,8...so even if after crop you have a 24-40 2,8 is not that bad.
the k3 is still faster anyway.

complain complain complain some only know how to complain...they want pentax do everything nikon and canon but at half price....that's why most people didn't buy ff camera and lenses from canon....it was money....now that pentax come out with a good proposal at very good price...the 24-70 cost less than half....they complain cause the kit zoom lens is shorter...they not even consider that probably the canikon 24-120 cost double....they want all at half price....
i expect big rant for lens af even price...

---------- Post added 02-15-2016 at 09:49 AM ----------

by the way nobody consider the huge advantage of in camera pixel shifting....or sensor adjustment composition (something that is so good to mimic a cube head from arca and something you can't do with a ball head only...so you save some good money).....or 5 axes stabilization ....i'm sure the only thing people will tell


- af ois not on par with canikon
-kit lens is slow and short
flash sync not 1/250---

bla bla bla...

stop ranting and go buy the gear you wanted from beginning...a d810....usre it will cost double considering the 24-70 but you will be happy and you will cure your complex of inferiority towards your canikon friend,

New 28-45 lens or 645Z?
Posted By jonny1986
Replies: 31

personally at base iso , even considering the higher dr of the z...i will take night and day the 645d and his ccd sensor
for me what took apart the 645d was that rendering typical of ccd....that i love with my k10d and lost in the k- series.
yes the sony cmos is better in dr and high iso...but the ccd at base iso is so smooth, the transition between tones amazing and has sublime rendering.
in my opinion while the cmos 645z is a great tool in every other department, it has the same kind of image that sony a series or nikon full frame has.
so keep the d and buy the zoom, or better the 25 f4. all this fuss about dr is overrated. use filter or luminosity technique in photoshop to achieve better balance with the d.
the overuse of dr in cmos sensor creates only unnatural images, i learn it using my k5 for long time.

I shoot this composite image a the Notting Hill Carnival. Walking in the street i noticed this old woman staring at the resellers with a serious expression on her face. I thought there was a strong contrast between this old Lady, very elegant and serious and the resellers in the streett, and that contrast created a strong image i shoot in camera with 2 exposure , using the built in multi exposure feature of pentax k5.
