  • Very nice! I have this lens as it came free when I purchased my K3 when it first came out. I have only unboxed it and tried it once but was very pleasantly surprised with the results.  It then went ...
  • Hello Valeriu, hope you are well. :) I'll have to wait for someone else to post some details of AF performance on the KP with longer lenses.  From what I have read so far, the AF performance does ...
  • Replied in Just "WOW" !
    Currently have User-1 profile set to TAv, AF-C 9 point, SR off, +0.7comp, D-Range shadow correction at mid-point, anything 1/1000 or above works well. Custom menu 17. Focus Priority Custom menu 18. ...
  • Hello Walt. I still have the DA*300mm and rate it highly in everything but AF speed.  I was using it a lot with with the 1.7X AFA for a handy 510mm tele or manual focus with an extension tube for ...
  • Thank you Arijit. I was starting to get a bit frustrated at bad BIF shots especially and had even considered moving to Canon or Nikon for the faster more accurate AF systems, but have decided to ...
  • Created discussion thread Red Kites for BIF target practice.
    Been having a play the last couple of days with settings, to try and nail a good setup to store in one of the User Setting slots for BIF. Luckily, I have some very obliging Red Kites at my new ...
  • Looks good. :) Not so much distortion at the edges as the 14mm, which is to be expected.  I have seen some very nice landscape images on Flickr taken with this lens and saw some nice Astro shots ...
  • Still waiting for this lens to be available here in the UK as it's on my "I want it NOW" list. I already have the Samyang 14mm F2.8 and 35mm F1.4 (which I love) and want this new 20mm to round off ...
  • Late New Year greetings Valeriu.  Hope you have a great 2017. Not been able to get out with the camera yet as lots of stuff is packed away after the move out of my old flat on Christmas day.  ...
  • Now that beard would be worth a photo! :) I've done the crawling around photographing fungus so need to move on to other subjects again, so BIF will be the next topic.  Weather not looking too good ...
  • Thank you, and you're welcome! :) Ian.
  • Thank you Valeriu. I have been seeing a lot of great rainbows the last week so good to actually be out of the car and in a position to photograph one for a change, especially in such a lovely location.
  • Thank you. It can look a bit bleak this time of year but still has plenty of charm, with different lighting and weather rolling in. I tend to stick to landscapes with the K1 and use the K3II / ...
  • Created discussion thread Norfolk Coastal Trip
    Another trip up to Norfolk last week and took a drive along the coast. Starting at West Runton to catch some rainbows as the heavy showers approached, then down to Titchwell beach for a walk along ...
  • I love all the different shapes and details.  Some do look rather like alien creatures from 1960's monster movies! :) Ian.
  • Lovely set of images Valeriu. Been out to a local forest over the last few days and the colours are fantastic, mainly Beech, Birch and Chestnut - watch out for those falling Chestnuts! Now all I ...
  • Weather today is awful, thick fog again and drizzly rain, but I took the camera and tripod for a short walk in the woods to grab some shots for a stacking experiment. I found a quick tutorial ...
  • I really hadn't thought of using pixel shift, I'll have to go back and give it a go. :) I was thinking about some focus stacking too on some of these subjects, I'll give that a go as well and see ...
  • Thank you! It sure is fun getting dirty scrabbling about in the leaf litter (second childhood coming through).  Much as I'd like to use natural light most of the time, using flash on some of these ...
  • I'm still experimenting with setup and have been using the Samyang 14mm a lot.  Great lens but due to it's design with that bulbous fron element, you always get some distortion of the stars at the ...
