  • I did some comparison tests recently and found my copy of the super takumar 55mm f1.8 to be the worst optical performer out of my bunch of 50's on the K1. My refurbished Helios 58mm f2 was the ...
  • Created photo thread une banane
    The markings on this banana drew my attention. Chris
  • Hi Joe, click on the link to the Flickr image and you can download a full size image.
  • Created discussion thread K-1 10000 ISO Sample
    With news of the K-1 MK2 and it's potential advantages over the MK1 in relation to noise, I decided to look through some of my high ISO shots and work some noise reduction magic to see how good ...
  • Thanks, that's great.
  • Created discussion thread Samyang lens question
    Hi, I'm looking to add the Samyang 135mm F2 to my arsenal and was wondering whether the lens is fully manual in operation or does it allow for electronic aperture control when attached to the K-1 T ...
  • Lawrence, I suppose it depends what the end result is for. I tend to print A3 for calendars and larger for framing and I'm not happy with the resolution from these lenses. My 77 limited on the ...
  • Maybe it's just me, I've tried quite a few of the older 50's and don't find them up to the job on the K-1. They are okay up close but as soon as i use them for distance work they show their ...
  • FA 35mm F2 AL - looks promising so far. More testing needed though when I get an opportunity.
  • Created photo thread Wet weather
    Been pretty crappy weather today in the UK. In between the rain I got out in the garden for a few mins with the K-1 and 100mm WR macro. Full size here ...

    K-1 with 77mm limited, or old ball... hmm depends on who you are
  • Thanks everyone for your input with this. Over the weekend Park Camera's were doing 15% of some Pentax lenses and I managed to pick a new FA 35mm F2 up for just under £360. I'm happy with the ...
  • It's interesting to see how we all have different ideas on what makes a good /pleasing photograph.  I guess that's what makes us human. It's not one of my best shots, but sometimes doing something ...
  • Joseph, You have no idea!
  • Created discussion thread Arty Moments....
    Just seen johnapp's shot with his Takumar 35mm and had my own arty moment in the garden with my K-1 and my Helios 44 m-4 Anyone else had / having an arty moment? ...
  • I've found the 35mm f2.4 to be a pile of crap on the K-1, it's a totally different lens compared with this one.
  • It's my favorite lens, spends around 95% of time on my K-1 If anyone is considering this lens I have plently to veiw at full size at
  • Thanks Ben. I'm considering a walk around zoom too. In your findings did you find that the 28-105 zoom competed with primes at that focal length?
  • There are known compatability issues with the K1 and some Sigma lenses where the lens mount rubs against the K1 when attaching.
  • Interesting... do we know if there would be rubbing issues with the Sigma in the K-1? I'll be stopping down a bit so vignetting wide open isn't such an issue to me.
