70-200 F4 is a lighter more budget friendly alternative for the 70-200 2.8. The 70-300 will alsmost certainly by a F4-5.6ish lens. Maybe derived from the HD Pentax-DA 55-300mm F4.5-6.3 ED PLM WR RE design.

Quite a collection. I have 7 20/28(3.5)/40/50(1.7)/100/135/200 at some point I'd like to ad a 35mm 2.8 and 85mm 2 to that.

Ricoh have of course already thrown in the towel where pr pressure is concerned. They have no advertising budget to impress with.

But you didn't notice that the Milvus shown is 85mm instead of 50 did you? If you did you could have pointed out another thing I already knew.

Purely my subjective feeling about what I find acceptable noise in general. Of course it highly depends on lighting conditions. In good lighting high ISO is more usable, but that is only useful when you need high shutter speeds or small apertures. Otherwise you might as well use a lower ISO, because it will look even better. ISO 819200 on the K-1 II is a joke, but if it means my ISO 6400 shots would look better it is OK with me. But as I said I do not think the K-1 II profits a lot from nr at the lower ISO I tend to use like it is the case for the K70 and KP. It will start to be more useful on higher megapixel full frame sensors for me because it's effect will be noticeable more at lower iso.

A phone with a decent camera makes much better images than any compact with a small sensor. Something about computational photography. Yesteryears top models are already very affordable.

That is not what I meant. I think High iso above 12800 just isn't good enough. With or without NR.

Some wide angle lenses that have short flange focal distances aka rangefinder lenses suffer from heavy vignetting on mirrorless full frame sensors because of the extreme angle at which the light hits the sensor.



That is about field curvature, making it easier to design lenses. Not light fall off. Although that would also help.


Not so, but on digital flaws are more obvious because we can pixel peep.

I think the noise cancelling chip doesn't do much for the K-1 II It's effect is only really visible on iso's above 12800 on normal viewing distances. You don't really want to go there anyway. Effects on the smaller 24mp aps-c sensor pixels is much greater at lower iso's so it is a good addition for those camera's. When a future full frame would have a 54mp sensor the noise cancelling chip would make more sense. So it enables the camera to have more megapixels. IBIS will have to be improved as well because smaller pixels need more accurate sr.

Somehow I managed to get the 85mm milvus on there. The 50 is very similar and lighter than the Pentax. Otus would be bigger but it is 55. Leica I ignore.

I have two of those :p

It is not the biggest 50 1.4 That goes to the zeiss milvus:



But although being about the same size as the Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art it has twice the weight. (If camerasize.com's numbers are correct). It probably has as much glass in it as the milvus has.

I paid $34,99 for the upgrade, but I did so before November 30 (I believe it was extended afterwards to December 31st, so now a 15% rebate until January 8). Nothing about higher pricing for me. I am in Europe.

I have the same phone Flickr crashes in the background when I use the camera when I take a photo. No problems on the nvidia shield k-1 on android 7. I do have a problem on both devices though whenever I open a notification. It isn't visible until i go back to the main interface and reopen the image.
