  • Nice shooting, Ulrich.  Good to see that you are still out enjoying the light.  Do you still visit Oregon?
  • Some nice shots of one of my favorite places - well done!
  • You use same Ltd. lens trio I've used for a few years on the K5IIs - the 20-40 is a gem, and with the 15 and 70 makes a great kit for travel, hiking, etc.  I now use the K-1 for a lot of shooting, ...
  • My first real camera in the 60s . . . nostalgia surge!

  • This is silly, ill-considered, and insulting all rolled up into one.  Shorter version: "I'm right, you know nothing, and you are incapable of knowing anything." I've been using LCDs for over a ...
  • Hi Ari, Glad you like it.  I use my unmodified 60-250 a lot on the K-1 and rarely have issues with vignetting.  The image is slightly cropped, mostly just for artistic reasons.  At the long end at ...
  • I was headed to a scenic park to do a shoot of a friend's daughter when she and her mom told me they had brought something special that required wide open spaces.  We soon reached a huge, open ...
  • This is a quandry for me since acquiring the K-1, I don't use my APS-C bodies as much, and when I do, it is rarely the 16-50 (partial to the form and output of the 20-40).  So it is newly repaired ...
  • Not inclined to restir this well-stirred pot, but there is little positive evidence that the motor change a few years back made a difference.  We've had failures of the new motor as well including ...
  • I led a group of novice ice climbers up to the crevasses on Mt. Hood's Eliot Glacier over the weekend and brought the K5IIs with 18-250.  This was mostly about climbing so I didn't take many ...
  • I spent the past week horse camping at the Oregon coast with my wife for our 37th.  Mostly we were relaxing and riding, but, of course, I did take a few photos.  I've tried shooting from horseback ...
  • Well, we can't have it both ways.  The OP bemoaned not enough lenses while you assert that I'm an example of people "content with what they have on hand" indicating that many don't need/want more ...
  • Replied in Eclipse
    This week has been all about the eclipse in my area, so here are two from totality, the diamond ring and the strange light in the neighborhood. K1, 150-450 K5IIs, Sigma 10-20 Surreal!
  • A lack of lenses doesn't seem to keep me from using my k-1.  I've got 14-450mm at high IQ, with quite a few primes mixed in (M, F, FA, DFA, and other mfg.).  Perfect - hardly, but the lenses are ...
  • Here's a shot of the solar prominences during totality from Western Oregon, big crop at 100% (1:1).  What a phenomenal 10 seconds! I think that's it . . . ;-)
  • I am impressed with your HDR and assume that you were somewhere with a fair period of totality - at my location with only 10 seconds of totality to shoot tele shots, an UW, and to somehow enjoy ...
  • One more, the diamond ring . . .
  • Created discussion thread Eclipse photos - post yours
    I know more than a few of us shot the eclipse. I'd love to see what we came up with. Here's my totality shot from just within the path - we only got about 10 seconds but it was a phenomenal sight. ...
  • Why use AF when you can use Live View and dial in the sun's edge manually? Then, just leave it . . . Good luck whichever way you go, no do-overs for a while.
  • I have a good copy from 2009.  It is a Swiss Army lens that works surprisingly well for all sorts of things like climbing, travel, outdoor events and concerts, etc. where changing lenses is not a ...
