Quote from Bladerunner :Our photography clubs' monthly competition subject is either "Still Life" or "Autumn"...this is my submission. I just wish that my new f1.8 lens had arrived in time...but it didn't.

Quite nice, but why so noisy?

As I said..waiting for my f1.8 macro..bloody silly lens I have at the moment only opened to f4.8, didn't want to use a flash, so had to up the ISO to 400 to avoid major under-exposure.

Ah, ok. Where was that pic taken from as if the light was so bad?

But most important:didn't he have a tripod?

Yeah that's what I thought.
I'm assuming it was inside, no wind, no moving subject, longer exposure seems rather obvious to me

Personally I'd probably take that shot at around f8, enough to get some details on the foliage. There's little visual appeal in the subject as it is, so I wouldn't blur it out too much. Obviously that's just me

I agree,just for the fact that i could have shot at 100 iso and f/8 which is the sharpest aperture most of the time.
Just found this,a 12800 iso shot from the new D3s.
Do i have to tell you what i think about it?
Very film-like noise. Not bad at all.

I'm getting two bodies because a) I got a deal I couldn't pass up, and b) I've always wanted to have an extremely small/light body for street shooting (paired with my DA 40mm Ltd. pancake, maybe) or possibly a dedicated M42 body. Anyway, it'll be a fun experiment. And if I end up not using it that much, I can resell for a profit.

Not sure which color yet, probably black or red.
Black or red?Naaaaaah.
I'd sugget you to go for the brown body and pea green grip(:razz.

Alas, the funky colors are only available in Japan.
Quote from IlGuercio :A minute of silence for that

There's actually a very interesting interview with Ned Bunnell, the President of Pentax Imaging USA, here. In it he sort of explains the Japan-only strategy, as well as a lot more about how Pentax has changed since Hoya bought them.

The D3s kicks ass so much it isn't even funny anymore. If only I was rich.
I agree!!! I'm drooling And not for the guys
Maybe one day...
Quote from DeadWolfBones :Maybe one day...

I think that when THAT day will come this D3s will already be in the museums
In the meantime, 15 more with the Helios-44K-4 MC:

Looks sharp but the bokeh is a bit nervous.
Lucky pentax guys
The crazy bokeh wide open is the whole charm of this lens.

My favorite shot with it so far:

My god the bokeh with that lens is phenomenal!!:woohoo:
Rawk from last Thursday
Shot a show in a small punk club at Tampere. Unfortunately the crowd was small so no good headbanging action at that evening.

ISO 12800...
