  • If I see at your list of lenses you almost must have K1 or K1ii! For some types of lenses vignetting is no problem as you would crop anyway. This is especially true for macro lenses. And cropping ...
  • K1 also was and is a great camera that brought back a lot of Pentaxians who can use their old great pK lenses.

  • This works fine with lenses that do not transfer the lens info to the camera. I use my Tamron TC with my A generation 200 mm macro and it is no problem, as the lens would not send any information ...
  • I don't have the 2x Tamron converter but an 1.4x. The only problem I see with this teleconverter is something general and for this reason I would like to share it with you: The correct focal length ...
  • I only use the back button AF as the shutter half press AF drives me almost crazy. I don't like it if I have the focus correctly, press the shutter - and everything is changed towards not useful.
  • Replied in Thanks guys
    I think we can override the AF system by manually selecting focus with many Pentax lenses. This is a good way to give the AF system a start.
  • This is also part of the PEntax AF system. You can even select the strength the camera follows the signal. And here I think the joystick could be a good method to lead the camera to that area ...
  • If I start with a new technology, it is always clear to me that it needs some learning to get familiar with it. If I have a camera with a new AF system, I would expect, that I need about 2 month ...
  • Hope the lenses will survive that torture! E.g. if I use the F generation 70-210 mm lens f 4-5.6 with my K-S1 it is thrown into focus position with an incredible speed and I always fear that the ...
  • Dear ADW02, thank you for sharing! I love On1 photo RAW. It is my favourite RAW developer program. However, if it comes to noise reduction, I use Topaz Denoise AI. The Topaz program works very well ...
  • What a great photo! That's a good winner photo. Congrats to fotobert from me! Best regaards Holger
  • Dear Valeriu, Your experience is very disappointing after we had so much hope on a better AF system. I could imagine that you may improve the situation by not shooting conitonously but contiously ...
  • Dear zakaria, thank you very much for your feedback. We have a very rainy spring an summer in Germany. On the one hand good for the nature after a decade of hot an much too dry weather conditions. ...
  • Dear JeremieB, regarding the colors I work with ON1 photo RAW. This program gives you the option to use camera-lens profiels made with use of color checker as starting point for post-processing. ...
  • Dear Iso rivolta, I just measured the distance between object (sharp area) and extended sunshade of the lens and it was about 26 cm if I go to maximum magification. The lens offers 1:1 for full ...

  • Dear all, I would like to share some macro photos with you I took this weekend. All photos were taken with K1, SMC Pentax-A* 200mm F4 Macro ED and Tamron-F 1.4X Pz-AF MC4 to extend focal range. The ...
