5.0 out of 5 stars Well constructed, highly portable, tack sharp little lens., March 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This lens is beautifully constructed, lightweight and tack sharp. I had read generally very effusive reviews about this lens but a product review on DXO was less than stellar. I am convinced that the DXO review must be based on erroneous data.

I received this lens today and expected it to be a dog wide open. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. I have only taken a few shots at f/2.8 and whoa! I've attached a test shot straight out of the camera (a K-5), shot wide open, handheld at 1/160 seconds with flash bounced behind me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor durability record, fickle hit-or-miss espresso quality, September 7, 2014
I bought this machine in January of 2009. The boiler recently sprang a leak. For the price, I don't think that 5 or so years is a pretty good durability record. I did descale it regularly as per manufacturer's instructions. Before the leak, the quality of the espresso it produced was hit or miss. It was very fickle with respect to fineness of the ground. I won't be buying another and will be opting for a Rancilio Silvia V3 to replace it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality, easy to apply, looks great!, May 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We bought this for a nursery. The quality is excellent and the decals provide for an attractive design. They're easy to apply because the manufacturer has given some thought to the process. The actual decals are sandwiched between two other layers: the backing sheet and transfer tape. Included instructions are easy to follow. I would recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, looks great, fits tissue boxes like a glove, April 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What more can you ask for? I'm very pleased with this thing. I didn't experience the tight fit that others have mentioned. The fit on my Scotties brand tissues is perfectly snug.

2.0 out of 5 stars Takes too long to give a reading, April 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The contrast on the screen makes it difficult to read the temperature values if you haven't given up while waiting for it to settle on the final value (the accuracy of which I doubt anyway). Save your money and take a pass on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely mirror, elegant and substantial, April 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Can't believe what an excellent value this beautiful mirror is. It's elegant and well made. Has weight to it; not flimsy. I didn't get a wire in the box to connect the links on either side for hanging but I'll find one somewhere else. That doesn't detract from my appreciation of this mirror. I recommend it. Did I mention the great value?

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish - Strobe stopped firing after approximately 10 exposures, May 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I took about ten exposures with the Vivitar DF383 flash for Pentax before the strobe simply stopped firing.

I replaced the batteries with a fresh set, to no avail. The camera and the flash were still communicating with one another but the strobe on the flash just would not fire.

Sometimes you luck out and the relatively inexpensive product that you purchase just works and you live with it happily ever after.

Sometimes (often) the old adage is right: you get what you pay for. Even so, I would not have expected this flash to fail on me within half an hour of taking it out of its box for the first time and shooting ten exposures. I still paid $130+ for it after all.

This is my first experience with a Vivitar product after Sakar International acquired the brand in 2008 and I'm certain it will be my last. I think they've done a disservice to the fabled "Series 1" brand of Vivitar third-party lenses by slapping that same "Series 1" brand on the front of this chintzy product.

If it were possible to review the product and give it zero stars, I would. One star is too generous.

Buyer beware.

4.0 out of 5 stars The pricey "tupperware" that will give you a nice diffuse effect, May 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When considering that the product comprises two pieces of plastic and a velcro strap complete with advertising for the manufacturer, it's indeed an expensive item.

Thing is, it works as advertised. The diffuse light from the "bounce" flash sent through the "Lightsphere Universal Cloud" creates an attractive effect.

Though it's lightweight, the awkward shape takes up a lot of volume in a camera bag, which makes it a pain to carry around with you when you're already lugging around a series of lenses, but I imagine the shape is essential to the desired effect.

This is a relatively inexpensive item that simply works as advertised. I am quite pleased with it and would recommend it to those beginning to experiment with off-camera flash photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential accessory for your K-7 (or K-5), April 5, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Pentax K-7 is a wonderful camera, but I found that its small size, especially when coupled with larger lenses, made it awkward to handle.

The D-BG4 Battery Grip solves this problem, balancing out the camera while giving you extra battery power and extra control when composing vertically-framed shots.

The build quality is top notch.

If you own a K-7 and can afford the D-BG4 Battery Grip, I recommend it without hesitation.
