    Wide angle primes is a problem. And the old ones are very very rare.
    There is a black 20mm FA, the 31 Limited and a silver SMC Pentax-FA * IF AL 24mm F2
    For portraits there are, besides may be the 100 and the older SMC Pentax-FA * IF 85mm F1.4, only manuel portrait lenses.
    The Samyang 135/2 seems to be outstanding and not expensive. The Samyang 85/1.4 does not have very good reviews.
    Oh I forgot there is the older Sigma AF 85/1.4

    Yes of course! A wonderfull lens.

    What we need is that Sigma makes there Art FF lenses ASAP available in (the right) K mount.
    Then most of our problems are solved.

    Thanks both

    I think if the sensor is as good as people are saying then it really needs something like a Zeiss 135f2 or Otus or similar with really good optics to make the most of it, I would be using it for work and would much prefer to buy high quality lenses new for it than trawl classifieds for legacy glass, there's a degree of security when it needs to work if I can go back to a dealer. Not worried about wides to be honest, would just like a capable camera for lower light stuff. I will have a read up of whats available in a K mount but it may make more sense just to go with a D810 knowing there is plenty of fine glass already available.

    Looking forward to seeing how the 100 performs on portraits, it may do the job.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Due to lack of wide angles I tryed the Cosinon 24/2.8. Not a great lens but usable for some stuff.

    The 77mm is a current lens, and one of the first I would buy for a K-1:

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...7mm_f_1_8.html

    Hopefully, Zeiss starts making the Milvus lenses in K-mount. Some of the older ZK lenses are still available new from dealers:

    Mmmm... thank you Vivek!

    This portrait could have more character with that lens.

    This is with the M 100/2.8 (wide open)

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Any suggestions for an adapter that would allow me to use my Nikon mount Otus lens on the Pentax K-1? I just ordered a K-1 because I've been blown away by the image quality but I'm new to the Pentax system and could use some guidance.

    Not sure of what native Pentax lenses meet the high quality of the Zeiss lenses but I'm looking forward to trying.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Leitax seems to be working on Pentax mounts for the Zeiss in nikon mount lenses, but I don't think/know if the Otus series will be part of it. You can contact him and ask.

    A portrait lens is the main missing item, but Sigma should step up this autumn, although whether for the K mount is unclear.

    thanks for the feedback. I know that the Leitax approach requires physically changing the mount so does that mean that there is a flange distance problem that prohibits a simple adapter?

    The white is not blown out colour, but natural variation in the rose.

    The K1 gives the best colour of any digital camera I have used, including Hasselblad.

    Great Pics Quentin! Now that you've been using the K1 for a bit, what's your suggestion regarding lenses?

    Its a head scratcher, because I know (or knew) nothing about Pentax lenses before the K1.

    I strongly recommend the Pentax 100mm F/2.8 macro. It's screw drive focus, but that's a detail. Small, sharp very good lens. Works very well with the K1. Love it.

    The Sigma 35mm F/1.4 is also very good.

    Don't bother with the 24-70mm F/2.8. It is not up to the job.

    Just purchased a Pentax 15-30mm F/2.8. Jury is out on that one. It a lot better than the 24-70mm, but that doesn't say much. Will revert later on that,

    Tried the old classic, the FA* 85mm F1.4, but it's an old lens that has passed its prime now (please forgive the pun). Pretty good, but dodgy focus and too much longitudinal CA.

    Pentax have spent so long on APS-C that they dropped the ball on new full frame lenses. They badly need to catch up.

    The Pentax flange distance is only 1 mm shorter (45.46 vs. 46.5 mm on Nikon), so an adapter is not realistic.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Warning: don't rely on autofocus with the 15-30mm Pentax, it's wildly inaccurate. That seems to have been my problem with the lens. It focusses too close by some way. Who knew?!

    That is bad news Quentin! I am seriously thinking about this lens. Can't you correct it? I could not find the tool for it; whatever the name was..

    Michiel,

    I have been working to fix the issue today and I think I have.

    The lens has very little throw. Between 1 meter and infinity it's just a short turn of the focussing ring

    The problem is that the phase detection autofocus with the lens focuses far too close, in front of the subject, if not adjusted. The problem is not there with contrast detection, of if you focus manually using live view.

    I have dialled in -7 in the fine adjustment and that seems to fix the problem (for my copy of the lens), but better still, use contrast focus with live view.

    Good lens if you do!

    Good job I spent some time fixing the issue, as I have purchased the Lee Filter 150 system and Lee Tamron sized filter holder (same as the Pentax, unsurprisingly). Thought I'd wasted my money

    Lovely images you are posting Quentin.
    I wonder why you appear to dismiss the 77mm for portraits. I've never owned one, but given its reputation, I would assume it to be a logical choice.

    Tom,

    My knowledge of Pentax lenses is somewhat limited. I will have a look at the 77mm, might be a good choice

    Yes that's what I mean Fine adjustment, I looked for it for a moment but could not find it. I am glad the possibility is there.
    And as Tjanik says, a portrait lens is not the problem with the FA limited 77. I have seen wonderful work with it.
    And the 31 is a great lens as well. Together with the 43 limited they call it the holy trinity.
    Problem is they don't come cheap. I have to wait a little, need to sell some other lenses first to fund new ones. Don't want to spend more money on photo stuff for a while.
    Looking forward to your first (city) outing with the 15-30!

    I have been playing with the Voigtländer Ultron 40 aspherical 40/2 SL. I think I like it. It is a A lens and it is really small. Nice walk around lens.
    I must say; the focus beeb works faster as focus peaking, but I knew that already from 645Z.
    Once again, they are discontinued. Cameraquest seems to be the only place who has a few new ones left.

    Hi Thorkil

    Ahh, glad you noticed It's by a pond where light filters through leaves on surrounding shrubs and some light dapples the foreground. I took a number of shots of this candelabra primula just an the afternoon sun caught it. Much as I love pixel shift, it really cannot be used for hand held botanical macro work.

    Hi Quentin...okay, without pixelshift, and handheld, I do think it looks even more impressive! well done.

    Ps. I guess stabilization then is a great bonus

    Thanks, and yes it is useful to have stabilization but its hit and miss whether its truly sharp, and focussed on the right spot. This was one of about 20 attempts... The K1 has excellent natural colour that other cameras don't easily match.

    Ok, checked the specs of the 77mm limited on Tom's recommendation, and will now be trying a copy for use as a portrait lens.

    Hi Tom, it is a hall, here in Amsterdam, full of used and new items from liquidations.
    The mix of things is always interesting.

    Here's another one with the same lens.

    What a place. Looks to be images from a dream: Santa Claus arriving with silver, faceless females; Buddha riding a wooden horse.....

    BTW I love your series from French costal towns in the MF forum.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    The K-1 arrived a few days ago. Just starting to get the hang of it. The first thing I noticed that it was not as big as reviewers were saying. Feels quite comfortable in the hand actually. I have lots of glass to try on it over the next few months.

    The manual focus indicator is so spot on, that one hardly has to use LiveView

    Wonderful Richard!
    Isn't it good the manual focus indicator.

    Did you have those lenses Leitaxed?

    77mm F/1.8 Limited has arrived. Sweet little lens. Will try it out on the K1 in a couple of days. If it's any good, as I hope, it will be used mainly for portaits

    Thank you Michiel.....yes, I changed the lens mount on the Zuiko OM 90/2 with a Leitax conversion mount.
    The Zeiss ZK is a native PK mount.

    I was strongly tempted to purchase the Voigtlander 40/2 SL, but am saving up for the Pentax 70-200mm zoom.

    Regards....R

    A few more to post.....

    Focus locked quickly......no issues with front or back focus.

    [IMG]20160605-IMGP0079 by Richard M, on Flickr[/IMG]

    This lens had a little bit more difficulty in locking focus in low light, although I did not notice any vignetting at all (as this lens sits on the edge of being full frame or APS-C). Gotta love the colors though....plus a little bit of 3D.....maybe?

    Looking forward to your thoughts on the 77mm Quentin, and the images too! Here's a review that might interest you:

    Probably the perfect lens on the K1. Shot a few today, and it performed admirably.

    Focus is a little imprecise, but it is perfectly aligned. Corners weak wide open; stop down to F2.8 and its all good. Some CA near max aperture.

    Glad I purchased it. Very nice, "old-fashioned" lens - so small, full of good character.

    I will try a few people shots this evening
