pentax i-10 and Windows 10

Media Impression 2.0 isn't compatible with Windows 10. As to those lost files, what was your 'F' drive? If it's the camera SD card your card reader may not be compatible with Widows 10 either, or...

DA* 16-50 SDM motor failure...

Topaz Labs

Not quite Adobe's subscription model. I would only upgrade if there was a significant change that suits. Not things like wireless, Bluetooth or phone connection being added

Another pointless thread

Same here Steve. Nowhere to try before you buy, (apart from Ikea and that is 90 mnutes away) and a pain to order online and then have to return something the size of a chair if it isn't right. We...

My favorite image from Porthcawl

Great timing in this one, and the birds add a lot to the image. The vignette is fine by me, but I'm sure none (or less) would work equally well.

Very pleasant, indeed, Rob and with a very good Irish/Italian restaurant next to the lock. Nice shots, by the way, that do it justice.

Sweet, the q is also a good option for moon shots especially with that monster lens you have, would love to see what that produces

An alternative 28-105 for the K1 ?

I don't think the vignetting is uncommon for wide angles. If it helps for a comparison this is the Pentax 28-105 @28mm and F3.5 on a K1-mk1. (Jpeg out of the camera) Have to say that unless the...
