    Nice review. As you pointed out, the lack of a lens cover seems like a major over site. To bad it does not have a sliding lens cover like some of the Olympus tough cameras do. Are you happier with the images off this camera vs the Olympus camera you used in the past?

  • Hi Jay,

    I think there are definitely pros and cons to not having a lens cover. A lens cover could jam up or collect dirt and, like I said, whatever material Pentax used hasn’t been scratched so far and I take absolutely no care to protect it. The real problem is just keeping the lens clean and free of water, sometimes when I pull the camera out in bad conditions I tend to get a smeary photo.

    The Pentax images are way better than my old Olympus cameras, we have a Stylus 770 and 790 kicking around. I’ve gotten some great photos with them, but they’re both pretty much wrecked (my wife and I are hard on stuff) and I decided I really wanted a new camera for my big trip. Although, I am sure any of the newer tough cameras would be quite a bit better than ones that are 4-5 years old so not sure it is a fair comparison.

    Regards,
    Anthony

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
