K-1 Incredible Resolution
16

Nevada Falls - Shot this from quite a distant with the DFA* 70-200mm.

Was just aiming at the Falls itself - when I opened the file and check the resolution - was amazed to find what was captured.

Look in the area of the top left pine tree and see what you see.

Cheers

Re: K-1 Incredible Resolution

I see a hiker or something that looks like one. Yeti maybe?

You're right, resolution especially in the right hands is great.

I was hoping to photograph the rumoured YETI - but captured humans instead.

Impressive resolution by the K-1 eh?

Great Image.  That's possibly the best advert for the K1 I've seen so far.

Re: K-1 Incredible Resolution

Yeah that is fantastic alright, great landscape lens if you fancy carrying that and a K1

Get it on a tripod and get everything in focus and you could give Ansel a run for his money.

.....still not too late for Pentax users to have what the others have relished for so many years now.

Yes... I see what you mean. Your pictures are going to assist in selling a bundle of these K-1's old chap. Your images are the best examples I'm seeing frankly... are you on the marketing payroll?

Thanks Malvern.

The K-1 with the DFA* 70-200mm in my mind has become an instant classic. Without a doubt the best DSLR and best zoom lens Pentax has ever produced.

The sharp rocks offset the falls well.

Hi Simon,

DFA* 70-200m - Yes it is fat and heavy but the image quality more than make up for the heavy load.

It did cross my mind to bring the tripod - but know that it is a strenuous hike up and down the mountain all day - so left it in the car.

You are the second person that brought up Adam Ansel - that's make me real happy!

Cheers

On Pentax Marketing payroll - I wish.

Pentax are you reading this forum?

A 645Z will do nicely.
