Pentax Full Frame - An official statement from Pentax (they listened!)

Well put.

I felt that the K-7 wasn't a big enough step to upgrade from my K20D. I almost upgraded to the K-5, but when my 50-135mm went in for it's *fourth* repair I ordered a Sigma 70-200 the same day (I knew it was going to be a while...) That blew the rest of this years budget.

I'm not sure if I would have got a K-5 when the price dropped to ~$1000 here - all of this corporate churn and uncertainty (and non-commital responses to letters...) means that I'm probably done investing in Pentax until I start seeing some roadmaps from HQ, and a roadmap that includes FF.

The thing that bugs me about this thread is the idea that Pentax is somehow different enough that they aren't competing with C/N/S. Bull-crap. They have to compete head on, and the K-5 proves they can do it.

What would suck is if Pentax released a FF, but with the following retarded features:

- Mirrorless - because that automatically means no OVF. EVF's just plain SUCK. And a back-LCD only would be a big joke.

- Small - because the K-5 is already too small without the optional grip. My K20D is the perfect size for that big 70-200.

- Optically challenged; anything besides air between the rear lens element and the sensor is a joke. No mirrors or AA's, please.

- Digital filters; if I want to put a coffee stain, torn edges, or selective color in my images, I'll do it in post. Stupid kid options.

- Hello Kitty edition: anything but black is a joke / toy. (ok, maybe the stormtrooper edition would be cool...)

- High MP: We really don't need a 36 mp aps-c (isn't that cellphone camera sensor density?). Canon nailed it with the 1Dx. 18 is a great number for FF. I want big, BIG photon wells.

- Stuff that breaks: No tilting LCD. Yes, I'd like one on a $400 camera. No way I'll ever drop $5000 on a body where it's likely the LCD will be busted off in a couple of months of actual use. I want a TANK. I want it made of metal. When I drop it I want the floor tiles to crack.

I guess I just want a camera that works, that doesn't have a lot of stuff that will break so I can use it for years, and that isn't a megapixel race victim that needs a quad-core, dual battery setup just to shoot at a sucky 3fps.

Sigh.... that 1Dx is looking mighty good right now!

Another Bokeh panorama, this time 13 images @ F/1.2 and from a further distance from the infocus subject. Im going to try my F 135mm @ F/2.8 next and see if that works better with less distortion (and maybe more bokeh?). Im also going to start shooting inanimate ones from a far corner of the completed image (i.e. where the top right *will be*) so my images are wide enough and capture enough detail. In the one below I had to crop out a lot that I could not clone back in from not lining up the images properly. (can be very finicky of a process)

Thanks all. Truth told, I've struggled to find subjects and settings that were appropriate for the effect the 10-17 produces. But when it works, it works.

Here's another stab at it...

Here's a shot that I took with the Pentax F 35-70 f/3.5-4.5. I purchased it off ebay for $40.
