Hi everyone.

I've been asked a few times by forum members that when I review the Pentax 645z if I could post it in the forum.

Here it is:

There's a fair bit there to go through and I cover the dynamic range, ergonomics, flash system and if you're in the mood 5.4gb of Pentax raw files for you to play with.

Love Canon, Love the Pentax.

Lenses / What the 40mm Pancake looks like on a 5D3

It focuses at 4 inches from the subject.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Another 5D3 ISO comparison
« on: March 27, 2012, 05:28:21 AM »
I just took delivery of mine, and whilst it looks to be an awesome camera I really can't say I'm impressed with the ISO improvements over the 1Ds3.

Generally I never shoot above ISO3200...not because I don't want to, but because of the noise level. I was hoping the 5D3 would be of some improvement over the 1Ds3 and in a way it is.
Silent shooting really is almost silent for example. But with all the noise reduction disabled I don't consider the 5D3 to be even 1 stop better in noise handling over the 1ds3:

Note also that the 1Ds3 technically only goes to 1600, the 3200 option is a 'H' mode.

These are all from in camera Jpegs too, to rule out the Raw convertor.
However, the files are much more robust and maleable.

EOS Bodies / March 22nd Release date in the UK
« on: March 05, 2012, 06:41:16 AM »
Just got off the phone with Calumet (UK).

I ordered the 5D3 on the day of announcement and in order to secure it I needed to put £100 down so I went and paid the full amount over the phone. In conversation the release date they have there is March the 22nd, which is a Thursday. Further there may be a possible deliberate association with it being 22mp on the 22nd.

If this is true then that's great, I've two weddings that weekend and can really put it through the mill.

1Dx is still labelled end of April though.
