  1. OH. I thought you were talking from direct experience. There is a massive difference in the demands on a lens going from crop frame to 36MP full frame and that has to be experienced directly at full size on a decent monitor. No doubt the K-1 is a fabulous camera for the price but I doubt that too many Nikon users will be shedding their lens collections just yet. Well Pentax have been making lenses for over 60 years, mostly for 36x24mm. I seriously doubt there is anything to worry about. Haha. That last statement is actually funny and it's absolutely not true. 36MP is getting close to mediu

  3. I only use the crop semsor bodies so cant really say.. Basically when you thiink of Pentax you have to think of a Nikon with IBIS, pixel shift resolution, astrotracer and a GPS, for half the price, at the expense of slightly slower AF, less sophisticated flash options and fewer sexy lenses to choose from at the long end,
  4. I got back into Pentax about 18 months ago after a long time with Nikons, attracted by ridiculous prices. There is not a huge selection of new lenses for the K-1 but there is a huge selection of legacy optics which are all compatible. The DA* and FA* lenses are all excellent, and many of the old M42, K, A, M manual lenses you will remember are as good as always. The new budget end consumer lenses are a bit hit and miss (avoid the horror known as 50-200 at all costs). And of course, there are the usual third party lenses from Tamron, Voigtlander (all yummy) et al, which are the same as you are

  6. what's that? One of these I believe.... Nice camera if you've lots of K mount lenses. Even if you don't have, you can go online and have lots of them in 48 hours. I don't work for Pentax by the way, just saying. Good sales pitch! However, I break out in a sweat at the thought spending money. Particularly if it isn't going to generate more money! Yikes! All this talk of spending's given me bad vibes - off for a lie down in a darkened room.... Believe me there is no-one more cost-benefit optimised than I when it comes to gear. Hence the attraction of a system tha

  8. Well, if you have a bag full of extremely expensive Canon lenses, there might just be some incentive... For my part, I'm hanging onto my 5D mkII and my 6D, both still produce cracking files, and owe me nothing. 5D mkIV? 5DS? Maybe one day .... Good kit is easy enough to sell online, especially L lenses, which hold their value pretty well.
  9. Why would anyone want a 5D iv when there is a wonderful thing called a K-1 for half the price?
  10. ....exxcept that's not written into law. Precisely. In this case, Alamy are making the law, as I guess they don't want to tread on toes, risk legal problems or garner a bad reputation from potential clients. I can kind of understand. It has made me more mindful of potential copyright and intellectual copyright problems...I wanted to do some stock shots at a popular tourist attraction here in Ballarat,and i know that many photographers have just taken images and uploaded them to stock libraries...I do forsee a potential problem down the track,so i think that i will approach them an
