  • Well, I usually never use the shutter button when a camera is mounted on a tripod - all sort of unwanted shake is introduced doing so. But as SR is automatically deactivated with either self timer ...
  • Thanks very much, Leopold! Phil
  • They do indeed, but I haven't color calibrated either of them. Will do so in the not too distant future. Glad to! Phil
  • Well, it's the FA 35, isn't it? :D Love this lens ... Will have! Thanks, Matt - and I envy you your good light a bit right now ... :) Phil
  • It is indeed  ... :-) You'll see lot's of those, Kristian - and not only from me! Phil
  • Thanks! As you wish - again quick & dirty. FA35/2.0 @f8, on a tripod; auto selection of AF points; for those with SR on shutter button was pressed manually; focus apparently wasn't identically for ...
  • You're welcome! OK, here a quick and dirty sample only - don't draw too many conclusions from this. Lens used was the DA18-55 WR. ISO 200, f7.1, 1/100s for both shots. DNGs were imported in LR with ...
  • Head over to the first samples section of this thread and you'll find at least a first self portrait, some flower shots for the colors and some high ISO samples. More to come for sure. :-) Phil
  • Replied in 1: Unboxing
    LOL! Now I know what it really means ... ;-) Phil
  • Replied in 1: Unboxing
    Yes, they do. And it's good to have one, I agree! Phil
  • Thanks a lot, mate! :-) Stay tuned ... Well, well ... sure hope so, but we'll see! Won't forget that, Wim! Phil
  • Russell, just tried the SIgma 24/2.8 AF. Works like a charme. No problems. Here a quick sample: uncropped, DNG, CA correction applied in LR, full size: Phil
  • You will! :-) Ah, shucks, that's not necessary ... Hmm, thinking again: That would be nice indeed! Where do I get my free copy? ;-) Thanks, Valeriu! I'm sure I will! Phil
  • So, here some of my very first thoughts & impressions trying out the K-1: (1) very nice shutter sound - it has a quality hard to describe, but it sounds sort of "professional" to me ... and it's not ...
  • Replied in 2: First samples
    So now for some very first samples with the K-1 - just a few shots, nothing to take too seriously ... All taken with the FA35/2.0 and with default K-1 settings - save the high ISO shots. The shots ...
  • Replied in 1: Unboxing
    As I said the K-1 was delivered this morning - so this package awaited me as I returned from work: Carefully opened the package: Ah, this didn't look right, so I turned the box for this second shot: ...
  • My K-1 arrived this morning! :-) Finally ... Just got home for work and of course had to check this new toy - prone to become my favorite one, I think. ;-) I'll post as three answers to this thread: ...
  • Thanks for all the detailed work, Ari - very much appreciated! I think that real-life results are quit usable with the TC - not wide open, but stopped down it's definitely an option. I'm not ...
  • Thanks! Exactly - what else? ;-) Phil
  • Replied in Ron ...
    Have to second that, Ron ... Thanks for sharing, and this pic of Carl is wonderful. Phil
