    Carl, very nice shot of the cardinal with seed falling.

    Thanks Jono, Carl, Lee, and Rich.

    Lee, I haven't had any sharpness or focus issue with the K-5 and my one lens. The lens itself is eye bleeding sharp and focus calibration seems perfect.

    Jono, Michael gave the MFD above, and I was very close to that limit when I took the orchid shot.

    Rich, DA70 vs FA77 doesn't seem like a decision where you could go wrong!

    First shot with a new lens......CV58 @ f/4. Definitely a learning curve with this one.

    Thanks Amin. Had to use CAF to keep the bird in focus with a 30 mph wind bouncing the feeder around.

    Rich,
    Very nice shot with the Nokton. I liked the 50 1.5 M mount Nokton on my m8 and m43 G1. How is the manual focusing with the 1.4 on the K5? Something I haven't explored yet.

    Thank you Lee
    The boss and I are living alone for the first time in . . . 28 years, and when children come home, it really brings the place into focus, it's not smart or grand, but on an April day it's heaven to us, the last shot with the telephoto, the collapsing stable, the barn where I ran the business for 15 years and a little of the house, together with Emma and HER tractor - it's kind of life affirming. We've been very lucky.

    Carl....more with the Nokton. I shot with it all day today.....a very joyful experience. After a few shots, I chose not to shoot wide open. At f/1.4 the plane of focus was so thin and there was just more depth to capture. So far, to me, one of the nicest things about the K-5 is the TAv mode....I set time and aperture and it adjusts with ISO.

    This first picture is at ISO 10000:



    Most of the rest are at 1/400, f/3.5 ISO 3200-6000







    Manual focusing became easier as the day went on. The viewfinder was surprisingly bright even at f/4.

    I got a Katzeye split prism in this afternoon's post. I wonder if that will be an improvement? I wonder now if I even need it.

    Jono, the K-5 and you seem to work together as Siamese twins sharing the same brain. You produce so much goodness together

    Kids nowadays, eh

    K5 and the 77mm Ltd at Scarborough Faire, Waxahatchie, Texas.
    I was trying to capture movement while keeping the dancer's face and uh...er... other attributes in focus.





    Scarborough Faire
    is a huge Renaissance Festival held annually. I've been going there for the last 20 years or so.

    Jim,
    This is unbelievably good. Magic, truly magic, and you have seen it through the eye of the 77...one more reason why this should be the most lusted over lens in Pentax's lineup and why your services should be highly sought after as a photographer...great great image.

    after seeing some of the work above, I hesitate to even share these, but figured it's worth seeing what the K5, and old lens (135 mm f/2.5 K mount Manual focus lens) can do at a baseball game:

    Those M 135 shots are stunning! Did you focus by eye or rely on the 'green hexagon' or even 'catch in focus'?

    What a great treat for the eyes...thanks, Jono (the little boy), Jim (the attributes in glorious, swirling color), Rich (Nokton close-ups), and Ashwin (baseball BW with 135/2.5)...all on the same page! Wonderful stuff! Photo magazine editors should be green with envy.

    Jim,
    Just fantastic images - you captured the spirit of the dance with an image that is just fun to look at.

    Ashwin, The baseball series with an old lens (in b&W) seems to take us back to an older time. Great shots.

    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    Picked up a new 100/2.8 WR macro three days ago...it has been an adventure!
    The K-5 is a perfect fit for my hands, and adding the 100 (which is smaller and lighter than the Sigma 70) makes a very nice handful. This is a very sharp lens...but the AF (as mentioned in Jono's posts) is a force to be reckoned width. There is no limiter switch on the lens, so the AF hunts wildly (and loudly) up and back.The AF drive is loud...like a dentist's drill right up to your face. So, as suggested, you manually focus into range and then do the AF for the finishing touches.Is it worth the trouble? The images it renders say yes, but it took about three days to get the hang of it on a consistent basis.

    Here are examples of the first day's workout...I make no pretense that the images are anywhere near the quality seen on this thread...but they do demonstrate the high quality of the image. Later tonight I'll post pics demonstrating the lens' ability wide open as I tip-toe through the early morning dew.

    The second image is the letter "P" on a fire hydrant.

    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    Your first set of 100 Macro shots look very good. I look forward to seeing more examples.

    The 100 macro sounds like a great choice for this camera - weather sealed and light but I wonder how the Tamron 90 would fare. I borrowed a friends for use on a Canon body and it was equally great for macros and portraits. I once used it to shoot about 50 head shots of a chorus when another lens failed. I was very happy with the results at 2.8.

    Ashwin, very sharp stuff. It does seem that the colors in the last couple of shots were a bit off.. I wasn't there so I can't really tell but they just don't look quite right to me..... everything else is amazingly sharp and well composed.

    Thanks for the kind words on the Bellydancer.

    I'm still studying these lenses and getting used to using them. I screwed up a number of shots because I forgot to change the ISO... the festival runs for a month so I have several weekends to return and try again.

    Very nice set of macro images from the 100 WR. I continue to be impressed (and tempted) by the quality images this lens produces.

    Thanks, Carl and Jim, for the kind comments on Part I of the 100 WR macro set...here's the second set, all taken wide open (or nearly) at ISO 400 in heavy dew ("have you ever been to doo wah ditty?). Light was very subdued...around 8:00 AM...so there's no sparkle in the dew drops...but the lens is contrasty and brilliant enough to enhance the drops...

    Re: Fun with the Pentax K5

    Roy - smashing macros.
    Rich - doing well with the Nokton - I used to have one for nikon, a nice lens.
    Jim - love the dancer shots - and certainly mission was accomplished - looking forwards to more.
    Ashwin - So - you can use the K5 for sport - excellent - especially the B&W shots.

    Rich, Jorgen, Ashwin - thanks for the kind words.

    Here are a couple from last night and today.

    Walking to the pub last night the light was really strange . . . not to mention the field signs
    60-250


    This was on the kitchen table - 35 macro



    here are some bugs on an Alexander (I think) head:
    18-135


    These two with the 18-135 are of reed cutters at Walberswick - we were in a hurry, I'd like to have spent longer there:





    back to work - all the best to all!

    A few from today - a visit to an art show and a stroll around the pond.

    It's way too sunny here!


    A little break from a very large show.


    Art - what art?

    Beautiful shots as usual. The close focus on the 18-135 comes in handy at times.

    Very nice images and if the sun is getting you down too much come on up north to glumdon - we have been having marvelous gray, windy, wet, and cold days.

    Again, thanks to all for your encouraging comments. Here is the last set of 100 macro WR pics...taken when I think I have the AF-MF sturm and drang under control. The red lilies are called Glory Lilies...and they are glorious...just began blooming. No apologies for the erogenous pine knots.

    Rich,

    Very nice shots with the Nokton. I liked the sculptor's hand shot best.

    Hi Lee,

    I use a Katz eye screen to achieve focus, but did keep focus confirmation as enabled. Plus, got lucky a bit...

    Ashwin, the B&W baseball images are fantastic.

    Roy, the first flower with raindrops is stunning. I'm still checking out the rest!

    Carl....I agree with Ashwin.....the tire shot did it for me too. You've shown once again that the 35 macro is a great walk around lens.

    Carl...very good little lens combined with a very good eye makes for these great "found" images.

    Rich: Knockout Nokton pics! That's quite a lens.

    Jono: Reed cutting images stir up memories of Van Gogh...you've taken us back in time.

    Jim Maher: Loved the girl with the umbrella.

    Carl, Great 35 macro shots. Particularly the driftwood and the wheel.

    Rich, The sculptors hand is just terrific. Are you having any problems manually focusing? I see a couple of people have used a different screen but I have no experience with that.

    Jono - great photos and it does feel like a time gone by.

    Jim

    Boston marathon comes straight through our neighborhood:



    We were at kilometer 25. I was surprised to see some of the older participants:



    Kids of all ages were out with their families to watch and cheer:





    Saying "Hi" to the kids:



    ... and as always, some strange characters:



    All images with K5 and 21/3.2
