Thread: Alert: DAL 35mm red is different from K-x red

  1. #1

    Default Alert: DAL 35mm red is different from K-x red

    Just got my DAL 35mm f2.4 from Japan in RED.
    The mounted pictures (taken with my PnS) shows colour difference:







    I'd say the lens red is a more vibrant red, the k-x, in comparison is more muted.

    So those looking for an true exact match, this is going to disappoint somewhat.
    But still! For an OTT setup, apart from the gold ones I think pink and red are

    when did you buy your red k-x? perhaps the color already fade off a bit

    so red DAL 35mm will match red K-r?

    anyway, congratz for your purchase

    K-x bought in April. Will fade off arh the colour!?! :O

    Also my PnS white balance I leave to auto, but adequate to show colour difference between the two.

    K-x red is actually not that red, it looked like faded red. but they changed it on k-r and the DA 35mm which is deeper red.
    I dunno!!!
    It's banana-zero-neh. :)

    I think it's all relative. One red still got another red redder.
    It's only under comparison that I realise k-x is not the reddest yet! Wow, then the new k-r must be really really eye-catching.

    k-x red is more 'pinkish' than k-r red..your new DAL 35 mm red will be a good match for the red k-r

    you can check out the red k-r here http://www.pentaximaging.com/slr/K-r_Red/

    The DAL white is slightly different from the Kr white also.

    Looks like it was meant for the Kr then?
    In anycase, apart from the owner, I don't think anyone will notice. In fact, if they do they would think its part of the pattern with 2 different shades of red.

    i actually like it in black i wouldn't dream of bringing a K-X or a K-R into out into heavy snow and i was faced with that recently.

    i am happy for you that your K-R gives u so much joy

    hoya was really spot-on in identifying this new niche. the other players have saturated the market with boring black cameras. making them in other colours sure turned out to be a winner
