Are we really THAT rare?

I have a similar experience in my relationship. Whenever we need a group shot of our kids, she asks me to take the shot with my camera, so I kneel or crouch to get a good POV for the shot. Then she stands behind me with her phone and gets all the attention from the kids, so she gets the best shots, while I get the ones with the kids looking somewhere above the camera. :hmm:

The Red Baron - Manfred von Richthofen - was killed in action in 1918. The swastika (on the camera top) was 'introduced' by the nazis in the 1930's. Are you sure you haven't been scammed? :confused:

Maybe people are just thinking the same way as me? I thought at first glance that it was incredibly cool. Then I saw the lettering on the controls, and realised that at my age I'd have a hard time even seeing what mode the camera was in. 😬

Wouldn't in-lens stabilisation also make the job easier for the AF? I can see the benefit of that even on focal lengths as short as 200-300 mm. Even a compact lens as the M* 300 mm I can't hold perfectly still.

Just checked the G900 if that was any better. It was not. :hmm: Disappointing, since it is aimed at professional use.

That depends on your perspective. Canon still exist as a camera manufacturer. Minolta don't. :)

Soo ... The correct name for the Spotmatic would actually be Centerweightedmatic? Not as catchy as Spotmatic, but ...

I'm sorry my point didn't come forward. What I meant was that one can't compare the price of two twenty years old designs (although excellent) to the price of a new excellent design.

Yes, but not at that focal length. 🙂
(Not for FF users, at least. Us APS-C users can have the DA 21 at a much lower cost.)

I have the exact same lens, and I agree with you full hearted. The 120 is perhaps my favourite lens, perfect for taking candid shots of my kids without interfering with their actions. I imagine adding a focus motor would bulk it up somewhat, but not too much I'd hope.

I believe that has something to do with the durability of the engine as well. A leaner fuel/air mixture wears the engine down faster than a 'fat' mixture, isn't it so?

Like they did with the M lenses, all but the extreme tele lenses had 49 mm filter thread.

Oh, the hoods are compact, but effective. Andif you ask me, the DA 21 does a fairly decent job shooting into the sun. :)

It wont't.

That's a 20 mm. Pentax's 21 mm is, as you hopefully can figure, a 21 mm.
That's a mirrorless design. Pentax's 21 mm is a DSLR design

Now, go start using that brain of yours!
