fakuryu: I still wished that they used the SMC-M 50mm f1.4 or the SMC-A 50mm f1.7 instead of the SMC-M 50mm f2, those lenses could've shaken things up a bit more.
Just as a question ... can the older FF film lenses even fully resolve a 36mp sensor? I'm of course fully confident that most would provide outstanding results, but again, wouldn't a lens optimized for digital have a distinct advantage?
Always Click: I have a K3 and five Pentax APS-C lenses, plus two Pentax lenses (55 and 100 macro) that will work with the full frame K1.
If for the time being, I am simply looking to upgrade the quality of the picture within the Pentax APS-C format through buying a K1:
Would using the K1 with a Pentax APS-C lens and the 15mp crop, result in a better photo in comparison with the K3, using the same lens and settings (ISO, F stop, Shutter speed?)
You would have a few features available, even in crop, that the K-3 doesn't have. However, I can't see how the lower resolution crop factor of the K-1 will be able to compete with the K-3/II's inherent resolution and quality.What it does allow you is the ability to still use the APS-C lenses you currently own with very good results while you build you FF arsenal.
An excellent view of what LR4 has to offer. I've been using it for a few days now and have had very good results so far. After reading this, I have even a better understanding of some of the new controls and look forward to taking things a step further.Thanks for the information and insight.
As an avid LR3 user, I've found LR4 to be a pretty easy transition so far and I've liked the image results. I haven't played with the Book or Map modules yet, but look forward to doing so.
