Software is the main issue rubbish auto focus miles behind the competition if your shotting mountains that dont move its a great option

anewman

More the fact that I understand most are rebranded Tamrons. I imagine they're not up there with Canon L, Sony G etc.

st203

How many lens do you need? Looks like they have quality lens at most focal lengths. Google FA lens.

The Pentax K1 looks great, but the lens lineup puts me off.

I'm looking to upgrade from a Lumix G3. I don't really take video, use the camera more for stills. Is the G7 the way to go? Or shall I look at something like the GH4? Unfortunately a G9 is a bit out of my budget range at the moment :-(

nicwatson11

Sorry gents, didn't check inbox, for photos I mainly do interior shots and multi fisheye panoramas so I use a samyang 7.5mm and the Lumix 7-14, I also use the Lumix 25mm and the kit 14-45 for video. I am trying not to get myself the g9, trying to resist.

energy80s

I have a G7, G80 and GH5 (plus a GH2 that I intend being buried with!!) The G7 and G80 are very similar as far as image quality goes, but the G80 has great IBIS and is weather sealed (if you use the right lenses). Three hundred odd quid is a good price for a G7 body, although realistically it's not worth a whole lot more. Lenses will add a few hundred more onto the price (for kit or basic primes) although an alternative would be a cheap adapter (not a Metabones!) and some old legacy lenses.

ureds

That is a superb deal. I did consider an import but being my first decent camera I bottled it and bought from John Lewis at the premium. Agree it's a good camera for its price.

polishpete

The G80/G85 is indeed better with IBIS and weather sealing. Without wishing to crow (!) I bought a new grey import G85 from eGlobal for £270 in November. It's a very capable camera.

I used to own a Pentax K1 if your serious about investing in a brand go elsewhere Pentax are way behind everyone else dont really invest in the brand and are totally ignoring mirrorless which is what I would recommend if your just starting out hard to look past Sony atm.

DF88

I wouldn't know much, I've only used Fuji mirrorless cameras I couldn't possibly be much help comparing two DSLRs. For me personally, my money would go to the Pentax without hesitation. The £100 more is worth for the weatherproofing and the IBIS alone. If you're starting in photography the Nikon might be a lot easier to use and have a better interface to practice and learn. If it does, that might be better for you. Watch some reviews and walkthroughs of both cameras, that should steer you in the right direction.

adam45417

Thanks for the info, Its a hard one... I think it mostly would be landscape photos I'd be taking but I would also like to use it for casual use too! I wonder which one would be the best all rounder? I know the Pentax comes with two lenses which would give me more scope I think? But it's £100 more?

DF88

It can be a fantastic DSLR for someone starting in landscape photography. Camera is weatherproof, it has great IQ and some very helpful features to get great landscapes(like pixelshift). For wildlife it won't be so great as one of the main underdeveloped aspects of Pentax cameras is the autofocus. Although the in body stabilisation will help, this camera will struggle with fast moving subjects and scenes like that. If the animals are not moving so fast it might do a good job. I don't have the camera but I have watched and read all kinds of reviews, so take it with a pinch of salt. Still very tempted by the deal but I cannot justify the buy for the little use I give my Fuji XT-2.

adam45417

In the market for a camera atm, I'm a beginner so was going to just buy a Nikon D5600? I like the idea of Landscape photography and also would like to use it for wildlife as awell. Which one would you chose? Or is there any other recommendations? Thanks :)

It depends on which lens holding value, that Sigma 100-300 has a good reputation, isn't that the APO version? The 43 Limited is very valuable and sought after, aboug £350-£400 worth in good condition. The FA 50mm f1.4 would get £130 or so. Times have changed since the K20, the amount of features in the K-70 is mind boggling. I've only started using pixel shift and HDR-DNG (3x RAW files merged in camera) output. The timelapse facilities are excellent, star streaming video, and various additive merging and averaging modes which imitate a big stopper filter. There is a tonne of learning with it.

Kaytranada

I scooped that deal, still havent bought a lense yet mind ..whoops

apreading

Yes, I bought the old FA 50mm F1.4 actually quite cheap when I got the *istD. Still have that, the 43mm ltd, a huge Sigma 100-300 f4, 28-70 F2.8, 17-35 and loads of other gear in a cupboard along with my P30T, MZ-S (LOOOVED that camera), *istD, K10, K20 and then it stops. Trouble is that second hand values plummeted for Pentax gear so I held onto it in case I came back, which I might one day soon. Will never use the long lenses though - micro 4/3rds much better for that but full frame better for portraiture and landscapes I think.

nocturnal74

Yes like nearly all Pentax bodies it is weather sealed and it works. I've had it at -15°C below up the mountains all day and it didn't miss a beat. My first K-30 got destroyed by water but Pentax gave me a new one completely free out of warranty period. They said it was a QC issue around the LCD screen so they replaced it. You should use Pentax Weather Resistant (WR) or All Weather (AW) lenses along with it though.

nocturnal74

No I don't find that at all. The above is a big discount and I bought other camera gear for a massive discount plus gog valuable free items along with it too. It depends what you want and knowing who does the best deal in photography which is rarely Amazon unless they make a pricing mistake. I only bought an SD card from Amazon, photography gear from photography shops. ;)

mr_bargain

Haha, you're a joker.

Derek_Fortescue_Shatwell

It's up to you. But if you want maximum image quality from your lens, remove the UV filter or any other unnecessary filters, when taking the shot. In relative terms, the £39 UV is cheap and so is the £699 lens that's being featured. They aren't high end products.

brilly

that has the same filter so its 'free' there as well - if you click the savings tab on the deal link it takes you to the 695 - bit odd ofc!

brilly

a 40-50quid filter isn't 'cheap glass' for the task it does there are 15 bits of glass inside the lens and they are more specialised averaging 46quid per element - cheap glass!

Derek_Fortescue_Shatwell

Of course it has an effect on picture quality. Also possible introduction of lens flare. Why put cheap "glass" on more expensive glass?

Yeah most definitely, I am thinking of upgrading to the GH5s in the new year if the Lumix S1 ends up getting released, as much as I love the GH5, the GH5s is the king of videography right now once you start using speedboosters (which I already do). Such a fantastic annoyance to have, because either way you end up with a superb camera!

PittancePincher

Thanks for pointing this out. I have had my reservations about the Panasonic AF system, if it wasn't a flawed system, I'd have snatched up a GH5s by now as it's the one to beat on everything else

iamdamien

You need good autofocus then, in that case don't go with Panasonic at this point in time, even though I personally use a GH5 I can't recommend them for anyone who needs tip top autofocus. Sony won't be beaten on that front.

Also looking for something to both take quality pictures and 4k video. Next years models look quite interesting.

I've enjoyed the kit lens, like has been said, nice bit of flexibility from it. i've also picked up a manual mieke f1.8 as a prime. yes it's not amazing but offers something a bit different. hopefully soon i'll be able to pick up a zoom lens, but think i'll need to splash the cash on that one. if anyone has any budget lens suggestions on this would be very happy to receive. thanks

aaron1uk

Just bought one of these from very for £469 was emailed a 20% of voucher so should bring it down to £410 with the cashback seems like a good deal with all the reviews, Can't afford a much better lens yet but will see how the kit lens works out for me.

They are all more expensive, that is the point. The A6000 is a great camera but the kit lens is not. If you had planned to get a better lens anyway, why not save £110 and put it towards something better, the Sony 18-105 f4 will cover a greater range and the image quality is really good.

eatmorefish

Yes kit lenses are often good value for money. You will often find them on ebay because people like me by them when the camera + kit lens cost little more (and in rare cases even less) than the bare body. This is a good deal, but bear in mind that panasonic often do summer cashback (and double cashback) deals which imo are well worth waiting for. But who knows??

cactusbrandy

Right. So how come you can't comprehend a body-only purchase? It's very common on most desirable cameras. No worries if not - but you'd hopefully grasp that the price with bundled lenses would be significantly higher.

BristolBillyBob

I've had this camera since Christmas and really love it. The customisation is excellent. While the pancake lens that came with it produces very solid results, the zoom (40-150mm) lens I got in a kit is superb. The only niggle I've had is that the touchscreen focus point feature while using the viewfinder can't be permanently switched off without switching off the touchscreen functionality entirely. This might not be a problem for you, but if like me you prefer to use your left eye with the viewfinder, you'll find your nose constantly changing the focus point which is maddening. No biggie, but worth considering if you're a left-eye viewfinder user and you think the touchscreen might be the clincher.

TheGalaxy

These are really nice, I've got the mark I version and when I have the funds I'll probably get one of these and sell the old one. Shame I can't get one right now as this is a good price

aitchem

I like mine but I bought it because I wanted something small and pocketable. Image quality is very good but the menu and all available options is very complex. I still haven't got my head round that. Have a look at Wirecutter's website (above) for an in-depth review. Good range of lenses available too as you can use Zuiko or Panasonics.

TK42

Best midrange mirrorless camera according to review here "it not only takes great pictures; it focuses faster than any other camera we tested, locking onto subjects almost instantly with none of the wobble or focus hunting we often see in mirrorless cameras". There's a review and comparison here: - http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-mirrorless-camera-under-1000/ It's also worth looking at the Fuji X-T10, it's very well made, has an excellent choice of lenses, APS-C size sensor, hi res EVF and lots of well placed manual controls.
