  • Looking forward to put one on K-1!
  • Very strong colors and impressive images as always, Louis. I might be wrong but noticed a little pincushion in the shots, maybe it came from the wide angle lens, but could be corrected.

  • Hi, Lawrance. It's K-1's advantage that it's both a full-frame and an APS-C camera, one can switch to either mode in one second. I switch to the crop mode when shooting birds with the 150-450, and ...
  • I like this lens on K-5 IIs, too. Nothing to complain for me. Excellent lens as an all-in-one. Now the combo is going to my son. I hope he'd like it. Very nice images from your link, and the hike ...
