"The shutter release action on the Pentax K-5 is much quieter than on the K7, which had a quite loud and mechanical actio"

The K-7 isn't that loud is it? wonder what the reviewer is used to.. the shutter of a Bessa III perhaps. :)

I guess Pentax thinks that their customers aren't fashion photographers and that they want to market their brand as a weather-proofed outdoors brand.

If Pentax doesnt want him, he should try Olympus. Their sponsored fashion photographers use Hasselblads for their "real work" and they still get the sponsoring.
He could choose any brand to shoot with and just use some PEN on his holiday and all would be OK.

So first the Pentax SR cant exceed what it has today and then anything over 6 stops SR is a marketing ploy.

So screwmount(M42) lenses...Is it just my imagination or are they much cheaper?
Posted By Shashinki

If you are using both M42 and K-mount.. if you want to swap between them, first you have to unscrew the M42 lens (screwscrewscrewscrew), then you need to remove the adapter (fingernailbreakingtime) then put the K-mount lens in. And then if you want to change back to M42 you have to do the same procedure backwards.

So when I'm out shooting I either go all M42 or all K-mount. Mixing them up is just annoying.

It's a pain in the ass if you plan to use both M42 and K-mount lenses and swap the adapter all the time. Some of the SMC lenses are worth it though...

Wide zooms did not exist in the M42 era.

That was true 2 camera generations ago. The thing about SR however, it improves on every camera. So the lenses we buy today will have the top "VR XIV" or whatever they will call it in 10 years time and all we have to do is buy the camera itself.

Sigma 105mm Macro in Pentax mount?

I just read on another forum that the Sigma 105mm for Pentax is backordered and no production is planned. Does anyone else know what is happening to 3rd party lens suppliers?

Are Pentaxians really so cheap that there is no money to made and no bother making any lenses for K-mount because all we use is a *ist/K100D/K-x with the kit-lens and our old K, M and A lenses? ;)

Only the 20mm is out of stock. Cosina still has some left of the others. If you order one from a dealer, they can still order it from Japan.

VL do still have some PK-mount stock left I heard, but the 20mm is sold out. If someone is looking to buy this, they should do so now (unless they hange their minds and start production again).

I'm buying them all to sell at 3x the price in 5 years!

Mwahahaha!

I have to say, I liked the idea of the K-r having the ability to use both AA's and Li-ions. End of discussion for the battery issues i guess.

Thats why Pentax needs to upgrade its AF-system to crush the SAFOX VIII-like AF of the 5DII.

For action photography, weather sealing, fps etc. body-wise the Canon 7D is miles ahead of the 5D mkII. The 5D even creaks and makes misc. low-build-quality sounds in cold weather. Imagine that in a camera thats less expensive. You gotta love the FF hype.

Edit: I have to add the appalling AWB of the 5D... that's a real shame
