  • Hi EricV You already have the lens : maybe all you need is the camera and the adapters ? For lightweight lenses : some Sony A7* + Techart Pro "M to FE" (AF) + "K to M" converter. It sounds like ...
  • Uncommon combinations, going wider ? - SMC-A* 200mm f/4 macro (with AFA x1.7 for central spot AF if needed) - FA* 85mm f/1.4, on FF (or K-3 when I miss my old F 135mm f/2.8) - Porst 50mm f/1.2, a ...

    Hi Holger Nice to see you "back to photography". ;-) You won't be disapointed with your new macro lens : old but what a gem ... I hope you will soon encounter great lights and photographic ...
  • Hi Holger I hope you're just kidding. Focus on photography not on photographic equipments! If it's not only about the hypes about S1*, R*, Z* ... By the way, did you try the 645Z ? Just remember ...
  • If you don't need fast AF, and don't miss EXIF data, maybe use the TechArt Pro M adapter with one of the M mount Voigtlander lenses (from 21mm f/1.8, or 28 f/2 considered on some pages as f/1.9 ?, ...
  • I hope you'll be fine with the most recent Sigma lens with APO, OS and wider range. But I don't think there's really a big deal between 450mm and 500mm, especially if you keep in mind that you can : ...
  • I haven't tried it yet. I should compare when time and weather are fine on my IR converted K01 (if it helps : not sure if it's equivalent now to a normal one), but here are my feelings. 1 - The ...
  • You considered Voigtländer for your A7 ? Well regarded usually. Lightweight lenses I'd like to try if they made K mount models (old macro were legends) : 375g - ...
  • Nice dynamic picture with great depth. If the DFA 15-30mm is too heavy for you, here is a short comparison (weights / angles): - 581 g = Irix 15mm F2.4 Firefly, almost half the Pentax's zoom weight ...

    Thanks for the tips as I'm thinking more and more about A7 iii with some interesting FE lenses to add to my K system, especially if I can use it for IR photography in the long run (maybe with ...

    Shooting wide AND macro is indeed challenging. But MightyMike made good use of his Laowa's shift lens. 0°) More details on Venus/Laowa's 15mm : https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56466916 1°) ...
  • Hi If you can live with manual focus lenses, you should also have a look on these : 1°) Specialty lens : Laowa 15mm f/4 (wide angle + macro & shift) https://www.imaging-resource.com/lenses/laowa/15 ...
  • Hi Larry Nice shots of a beautiful place with K-5 II. But what treatment did you applied with Lightroom to get these strange patterns in the first picture at low ISO ? When you look at the sky at ...

  • Hi Lance Glad to have some news. I hope you're still fine. Sorry but I missed your post a few months ago: I just come here now and then. Maybe you'll have in a few years the best of both worlds : . ...

    Thanks for sharing these great pictures ! It brings back sweet memories of a beautiful country. Another point of view on Valetta a few years ago - K-3 , f/13 @ 200 mm, 1/350, ISO 100 Hypnotising ...

    At least, let's see what will come from Pentax/Ricoh's cross breeding. The first move with the GR III seems a bit shy compared to other makers annoncements, but it will probably be well received ...
  • Dear Valeriu, thanks for the advice. I see in your results what I could gain with this upgrade, but I will probably wait for a K3-III or a new lens : I can't live without my old and sturdy K-1, ...
