    WOW, that is an extremely fine composition and one of the best black & white landscapes I've seen in some time. The tones are delicious!
    Did you convert in Lightroom?

    Cheers,

    Thanks, Ross. ACR (so effectively the same engine Lightroom) and finished in Silver Efex Pro 2 (but not too aggressively).

    I just started collecting some lenses from the A series which are better as the older M series.
    I did learn a lot from the user reviews on the Pentax forums, because I didn't know a lot about Pentax lenses myself. They are probably a bit to positive because they are real "Pentaxians"
    But still it gives a good general view.


    The A series are from just before the FA series and many of them have the same lensdesign.
    I like these because they have in camera aperture control (A) and are all metal in contrast to the later FA series which are black plastic or aluminium. And they look so good on the K-1!
    And manual focussing is a breeze on the K-1
    I have now the 24/2.8 which is quiet good, a bit weak in the corners but acceptable for me. It can flare also, but very little distortion.
    The A 28/ 2 is very good and the best of the three wide lenses I have now. Very sharp. Still about 1/4 or 1/3 of the price of the 31 limited.
    But if I were you I probably would buy the 31 limited which will probably be even better in about the same range.
    And the A 35/2.8 is good lens as well. I'll include a picture.
    The VC 40/2mm is a wonderfull, but rare, and sharpest I have for Pentax and will keep me from buying the 43 limited for the time being.

    I have the A 50/1.4 on the way, it was a good deal and like new, although I actually I planned for the FA 50/1.4 because I like AF for portraits. (grandchildren etc )
    Also on the way is the FA 20/2.8 and I am looking forward to it. It gets raving reviews on the Pentax forum. I am much more interested in the wide side at the moment and I hope it will
    be, together with that new Irix 15/2.4 lens, my small solution for wide lenses. But I will not exclude the 15-30 in a later stage. Size, weight and price is a bit of a problem.

    I would like A * star lenses but they do collector prices so I forget about those.
    My first newer AF lens aquisition will be the 77 limited. Any pictures yet with yours?

    Besides post processing, not to forget excellent technique applied, .6 ND + Pol is a challenge I believe, which brings me to a question Quentin, how is focussing practised with that filter combination? I mean, the prism does not have enough light left for you to see and focus with that combination, right? So how did you do that with the K1?

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    You have to focus before the filters are added on.

    It's pretty cumbersome but with a tripod, manageable

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    The Pentax 31mm has a great reputation, mostly for its use on aps-c.
    I've seen some not so bad tests with it on FF Sony cam but also one test that shows a weak behavior out of the center of the frame:
    La non mia Sony A7r con i miei obiettivi There is a warning before opeing this site, it did not arm my computer and so I publish the link.
    I don't know how representative it is but I went for the 35mm sigma art K mount finally. A safe bet I guess.

    That is in contradiction with what the guy said of whom I bought my Pentax-A 28/2. He bought the K-1 as well and said that he rediscovered the 31 limited again moving from APC to FF.
    That is why he sold it. Well anyway I must say I find the A 28/2 to be an outstanding lens on the K-1.

    Creative use of pixel shift!

    Perhaps other images exist (low shutter speed) but this is the first one that looks nice.

    Hi Quentin, Great shot. It is the first I have seen with pixel shift on the sort of subject I would shoot. Question, does the B&W conversion hide the colour artifacts or is the file clean?

    Thanks, Alan. There are some colour artefacts with Adobe Camera Raw / Lightroom, although that was only a secondary consideration. The Pentax Digital Camera Utility 5 is abysmal to use. It deals very well, however, with movement - but using such software is a pain!

    Can it be worse than the Sigma software?

    He does everything to prove that your better of with a Canon. Even the price including lenses seems not right.
    And with second hand lenses a 5Dsr was a lot cheaper without doing the same trick with Pentax.

    Pixelshift; no real advantage either. No, he was not in the mood for this camera. (Pentax dared not to send him one on loan for testing)
    No good for portraits? Yes for fast professional fashion shooters. But for the main public it is a good camera for portraits.

    It needs more lenses and the ones they have are to expensive compared to the Tamron equivalents.
    I expect Sigma to jump in soon.
    Another thing is that Adobe has to come up with a decent pixelshift handling.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Michiel

    On the plus side, he said it was the best landscape camera of them all.

    I'm still awaiting a proper chance to try out the K1 for portraiture. I have some strobes set up for that purpose.

    Some of the unique features were not properly explored. He needed more time to properly explore pixel shift, but I agree with his assessment of Silky Pix. The world has standardised around ACR / Lightroom and Silky Pix has its own weird way of doing things. Even worse is Pentax's own interpretation of it in Digital Camera Utility 5. I once used Silky Pix as my main RAW decoding software (years ago).

    He was spot on in his assessment of a shortage of modern Pentax lenses.

    My idea is that Pentax release a new version of the KI, called the K1 Studio. The K1 Studio would add compatibility with Studio flash, with a user selectable delay between each of the four shots in Pixel Shift. That's how Hasselblad does things and its essential for studio food and product photography. The K1 Studio would also add in some other features which we can discuss

    Can't they do a FW update to make that K1 to have "studio" features?

    Hope so. With "studio" features, the K1 is a much better proposition for studio still life / product / food photographers. Of course, the other alternative is hot lights, or these days, LED lights, now of excellent quality (see, e.g. Rotolight).

    Note: ignore the ridiculous "malware" warning you might get. Alternatively, just type in https://www.rotolight.com/ )

    It's June and the cactus are flowering..........well, not the cactaceae we normally think of.......

    Genus: Hylocereus.......with several species........Night Blooming Cereus and Dragon Fruit (H. Pitahaya). The flowers look very similar, but the pitahaya produces a delicious fruit. (Google it and you'll see).

    Two more.......they bloom for a single night. Apparently, the evolution of a night bloom (vs. day), favors pollination by moths, midges and bats, as opposed to bees.

    Delighted with the 77mm Limited on the K1 today. Razor sharp.

    Here is a shot of our new Spanish colleague in monochrome taken for our website. Not fully processed. Can't correct the dodgy tie, however....

    Wonderful portrait Quentin! The not so perfect tie makes him even more sympathetic.

    Here's one with the FA 20/2.8

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Just dipped in to the discussion about the new Hasselblad X1D. I now return the more illuminating world of the excellent K1. Quite a day along with the referendum and some other exciting work related stuff.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    I just discovered this thread - am always over in the medium format area - and I must say you are "killing it" with the K-1 Quentin. Some great images so far. I have wanted to upgrade or supplement my 645D with a Z, but I too got myself a K-1. For me it was to go wider than the 25mm on the medium format, be able to go sans tripod on occasion, and play more with night images. I have a couple questions. Since the Pentax-D FA 15-30 should arrive tomorrow, I was wondering about the Lee split neutral density filters for it. I use the 4x6 filters, and find myself using the 2 stop soft gradation one the most, with the 3 stop always seeming to be too much. I see now that they also offer a .45 and a .75. I am tempted to get the .75 first and then maybe the .45 later. I was wondering if you have any thoughts on that. Also, I was wondering about your fantastic flowers. Are you hand holding for those, or are you using mostly a tripod. I'm so uncomfortable hand holding a camera that that will be a skill I will have to learn. Thanks for any response.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Here are a couple from the K-1. The Forget Me Nots and Trillium are with a M42 Cyclop 1.5/85mm (constant aperture) which apparently has the same lens formula and is analogous to the Helios 40-2. I got it off the bay from a seller in Syberia. Warning - it doesn't fit. It is too wide at the mount. I had to use the small Roman No. I extension tube to gain clearance. The Marsh Marigold's are with the Pentax-D FA 100 macro.

    Rick

    Wow. After posting this, the Trillium shot looks way too vivid-neon. Looks like I'm going to have to go back and dial things back a bit with the processing.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    My K1 arrived two days ago. I'm pretty impressed. This is a single frame shot (haven't tried pixel shift yet) taken in my back yard, using a vintage Pentax SMC M F1.4 50MM @ F8. The lens really seems to hold up. Files are as easy to work with as those from my 645Z.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    I just bought an almost like new Tamron AF 70-200/2.8 Di LD IF Macro in Pentax mount.

    Here is a test shot out of the window. Of course it is raining again. This is @ 200mm F.9 handheld.
    I think I will find a lot of use for it. Can't be much worth then the new rebadged Pentax 70-200.
    AF seems to be slower though, but good enough for my kind of use for it, I hope.

    No, Michiel.....I was fortunate to find it in the ZK mount (which means one gets aperture control through the camera).

    Here is another one with the 2.8/21. It is hard to see in the web sized version, but it picked up some very nice orange reflections off the rocks in the water, even though it was in the shadows.

    By f/5.6 or f/8, it is very sharp in the corners.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Guys, what about Silkypix raw dev ?
    As already well communicated this is not really a nice raw dev. (mostly because of a buggy preview, not intuitive, strange options, bad sharpness).
    But I found the Pixel Shift with movement compensation quite efficient, not perfect but it makes a nice improvement compared to Lightroom (that does not support movement compensation at all).

    My biggest surprise came from the DR of the files: more headroom, especially in the highlights it seems.
    So I will further investigate and wonder what you guys think about it ?

    I don't want to use Silkypix as my main raw dev for Pentax but, for my best shots and those Pixel shift with movement correction, I'm considering using Silkypix as a fist step: white balance / highlight & shadow recovery / boost saturation and let most of the other settings to zero + low contrast. This gives a quite dull result that I import as a tiff in lightroom for contrast / fine tuning / sharpness.

    I processed 3 pictures that way yesterday and found that I reached a better overall result (color accuracy, DR, natural rendering) compared to the same ones developped in LR only.

    I have been using Silkypix in the past but it did disapear from my workflow. I did not even install it again when it was delevered with the K-1. I will look into it again when I am back in Amsterdam.
    Do you use it in combination with the Digital Camera Utility from Pentax when you use pixelshift?

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    I've downloaded the trial version of Silkypix from Pentax.
    From my understanding DCUP is a reduced version of Silkypix and has even more performance/stability issue on Mac.
    I'll give it a try as I'm not sure to be willing to pay for such software once the trial period of Silkypix has ended.

    I used SilkyPix years ago. I tried it again with KI raw files and frankly I have concluded I might as well use the free Pentax software just to decode pixel shift shots. My preference is to use ACR, or Lightroom unless I have to use Digital Camera Utility because of movement issues with pixel shift.
