My Pentax FF is Already Here! ;-p


My Pentax Full Film body is almost 15 years old now. And, I am right here waiting for the Pentax Digital Full Frame body for at least 13 years! :-(

New K-3II Review (and its focusing performance)

@ The PB: http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/pentax_k3_ii_review/

Whilst PB has been positive about the AF performance of the K-3II, our respectful PF, on the other hand, has found something opposite, see:

http://www.pentaxforums.com/reviews/hd-pentax-d-fa-150-450mm-prelim/focusing.html

Quoted, "Although on paper, the Pentax K-3 II promises to bring undisclosed improvements to AF-C performance, we did not observe any evidence of faster focusing, lower latency, or quicker target re-acquisition with the K-3 II."

So, whom should we believe after all? ;-p
