  • 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 https://www.flickr.com/photos/84429093@N08/345 ...
  • Created photo thread Precious things
    K-1 with 77mm limited, or old ball... hmm depends on who you are https://www.flickr.com/photos/84429093@N08/
  • 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? https://www.flickr.com/photos/84429 ...
  • 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 https://www.flickr.com/photos/84429093@N08/
  • 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.
  • Thanks Zakaria, Food for thought, i may go for the 35mm F2 then as I will be using it at around f8 +, mainly for landscapes, so the bokeh doesn't matter so much and I convert a lot to monochrome.
  • Cheers Guys, Budget is a consideration but to me but so is the final picture sharpness so I will stretch to the 31mm Limited if I have to. Does anybody know if the sharpness of these two is similar ...
  • Created discussion thread K-1 and the 31mm Limited
    Hi, I'm looking for a new lens at around the 30mm focal length for mainly general and landscape photography, i need it to be sharp. I have recently tried a Da 35mm which i had heard were okay, and ...
  • Created photo thread My Favorite Combo
    K1 with 100mm WR F2.8, what an awesome combo! 1/30, F3.2 @ 1600 ISO. https://www.flickr.com/photos/84429093@N08/32976129192/in/dateposted-public/
  • Looking at the work you do I'd stick with the fuji and save your money for something else. The fuji is more compact, discreet and is perfect for what you do.
  • Great work. Definitely worth further experimentation.
