  • My take with K-1 and ancient Tamron 70-300 lens. David
  • Problem solved. I put the card in the newer iMac and used Disk Utility to erase and reformat it in Ex FAT. Now the card works in both computers. David
  • Thanks. That's what I've always done and had no problems until now. I received the card, reformatted it in the new K-1 and encountered what I described but only in the older MacBook Pro which ...
  • At your recommendation, I purchased one of theses cards. It works fine in the camera and opens and reads fine in my iMac but doesn't read in the built in SD card reader in my early 2011 MacBook ...
  • Thanks, Roland I actually agree and frequently add a touch of vignetting to many of my images. I was just pointing out that for me, despite much information to the contrary, the 35mm Macro is more ...
  • Created discussion thread K-1 and 35mm Macro
    Having just taken the jump and purchased a K-1, today I shot my first pictures. One of the first lenses to try was my 35mm Macro. I like the 35mm focal length and it's close focusing capability. ...
  • Created discussion thread Card Recommendation, etc. for K-1
    I finally took the plunge and bought a K-1. It arrived today and the battery is just charging. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a fast SD card for it? I am currently using a SanDisk ...
  • Very nice. I was so impressed, I don't normally shoot similar photographs with any thing but a 50mm Macro lens but went to B and H and quickly checked out the lens. The site indicates it's not ...
  • I wish they had a lens in place so you could compare it to my K5SII for instance. I'm looking for an articulated finder to supplement my K5 and am not sure if this or the K1 is what I really need. ...
  • Thanks Ari. Looks like it will work for me even at f2.8 with a little correction in Photoshop RAW. David
  • Has anyone tried the 35mm f2.8 Macro with the K1?  They say it works stopped down. Are they referring to a little vignetting wide open but clearing up stopped down like this? Thanks. David
  • Thank you Curtis. I was looking to get a handle on how large the set up would be with the Minolta Macro. Does this then provide auto aperture and autofocus? Thanks David
  • Thank you everyone for the feedback. I'm looking, as I said, for a full frame camera and one lens carry about with close focusing and preferably a 35 or 50mm perspective. Even if I went with the ...
  • I'm referring to the size of the adapter negating the advantage of the small camera body. Do you know, does the Minolta 50mm macro work on the A7? I like working with a 50mm or 35mm lens in terms ...
  • Thanks, Jim. Darn that auto spellcheck. Sony has a great small body and sensor but the lenses are so large or, as in this case, not the right combination of focal length and focus capability. Could ...
  • Created discussion thread Sony A7II or A7RII and 50mm Macro lens
    I am very close to ordering a Pentax K-1 but really value the size of the A7. My style is the use of a single lens-a 50mm Macro-about 75% of the time. Is there such a lens for the Sony series? I ...
