    Great portrait and nice colors indeed : Well done ! Better see at 100% for the amazing details ;) But what lens did you used ? I can't think of a 85mm macro ... o_O Any information about what flash ...
  • Amazing ! I already noticed you were pretty good in electronics and engineering when you repaired your Mazda, but this ... I managed to study some electrical engineering when I was young but I ...
  • Miles, you're welcome. Stig, that's too bad as it's really a great lens ! To me it only lacks the CPL of the FA* 300 & 250-600. Did you finally managed to get parts to repair your lens ? Looking at ...
  • It's listed for ARRI, RED and BLACK MAGIC that seems to be the main manufacturers of professional video cameras. Not sure you can find PL to PKA adapters :( only for Sony and Canon EF mounts I guess. ...
  • Hi Jean-Philippe Nice family indeed ! Could you tell what kind of protection you used for 1200mm ? It should be interesting too for other lenses ... Regards, fredg PS: I guess the one with the ...
  • Same point of view for me : I wrecked this lens last year so I don't know how it would behave with the K-3, but it's really a versatile lens, usefull from 18 to 135, with good bokeh for a kit ...
  • Some more pictures from the K20d (still usefull I would say) : another point(s) of view. EXIF in the files as usual... 1. Artificial flowers 2. Phosphorescent butterfly 3. Colors and transparencies ...

  • Just a tip from a french photographer about this lens : http://www.cmp-color.fr/pentax_645D_optiques1.html it seems it's not exactly a good lens with the 645D :( Regards, fredg PS: If you like ...
  • Nice series ! Great shots and nice mood. Just for the fun, you may do some post processing to get rid of the purple fringing that appears at full size on those pictures. That would make a great ad' ...
  • Wellcome to Pentax's LBA ! Lots of old gems and nice lenses to play with in PK mount. I guess you'll find out that this lens is quite good for the price, in the 80-200mm range. Just don't try a F* ...
  • According to CameraPedia, he was responsible for the lens design of some great Pentax lenses ... - thanks for the FA* 85mm and FA* 80-200mm ! ... I love them ;) - some Limited like the DA 40mm, FA ...
  • Thanks ! A FF/K-3 from Pentax and a FF/GR from Ricoh ? That should be a good move : an efficient way to reach two market shares with the same technology ;) And if the prices are realistic like for ...
