Nice to see another Pentax review.

 

A couple of typos:

 

page 2, these links don't work:

 

page 3, this line:

"It is am impressive lens which is easily as good if not better than similar offerings from Canon or Nikon. "

A very good lens design. Unfortunately according to forum feedback Pentax seem to be churning out a high proportion of de-centered copies.

Exactly one month later, a review, and... it's a Pentax of all things.  <_<  :P  :rolleyes:

First Pentax test since 2012... and first replay at DPR since 2011... back to essentials..? :)

Lovely.

The links are working for me at least - maybe a temp issue in the content distribution network.

 

Fixed the typo - Thx!

Wow... yummy.  :P But I never cared about choosing chocolates - just down the whole box and be glad I got it. :)

Lemme guess about the rest... the EF-M ones are all obvious (after all... I think there's precisely 4 EF-M lenses in existence  :rolleyes:), and the rest is two 150-600s, the second Sigma is the 24mm, the Canons are the 11-24 and 100/2 (unless you start retesting lenses in the APS-C scope again... then it can be anything), the Sonys are the 28/2 and... maybe the 28-70, the Fujis... well, you already spilled two of them - the 56/1.2 APD and the 18-135, so the others could be the 16/1.4 and the 16-55. I'm not versed in the Pentax stuff to predict any of these, though I think the new full-frame teles may be good candidates? MFT - no idea again.

Man, I love playing the guessing games. :)

 Those links on the 2nd page redirect back to page 1.

The original links work fine here, Dave. (When I click yours, I go back to page 1 indeed.)

Yes, but when selecting the different tabs in the distortion section, there's nothing wrong there - neither in Chrome nor IE.

When doing a right-click and "open in new window" on one of those table, I can recreate it. But this isn't really a use case ...

I'm not seeing the tabs, that's why.  Seems it's a problem with my browser, either an extension or a setting (maybe javascript?).  It renders correctly in an anonymous browser window.

Yes, there's javascript used throughout the site (including the forum) and also for the distortion presentation.

However, we introduced this something like 3 years ago thus I am a bit surprised that you are running into an issue here. There's no new code used in this Pentax review for sure.

I've got the same behavior as Dave, whether in a regular session or an anonymous one. There is either an issue with that page or a bug in the rendering engine of Chromium for Linux.

 

System: Chromium Version 41.0.2272.76 Built on Ubuntu 14.04, running on LinuxMint 17.1 (64-bit)

Did you try opening the javascript console to see if you have errors there ?

This sounds like a browser bug. The code has nothing to do with user sessions whatsoever. 

It seems as if your browser is ignoring the required ?start parameter behind the URL. We are using a relative path.
