    Thanks fellows, you've convinced me about the K-1. I'm not too concerned about the lens offerings, the intent is to keep the kit small.
    I believe you're correct about the car Michiel; similar lines to a Spitfire, but not quite right.

    I could fall in love with this lens but it is just a cold piece of metal and glass I can't talk with.

    Michiel, this is really interesting. You posted other images from this area in the MF forum. But this is the image that really shines for me. The structure, color, and texture comes together rather effortlessly here to make something greater than its parts. The others feel more descriptive.

    Michiel

    The 25mm zeiss lens for Nikon, converted using a Leitax replacement mount for Pentax, is an option I have been looking at. The 25mm Contax / Yashica mount lens was a favourite of mine on my old Contax film cameras in the 1980's. Did you do the mount conversion yourself or send the lens to Leitax?

    Loving the results in your talented hands!

    I completely agree with the comments about this image, having seen both versions. This image is very powerful compositionally. Having viewed it several times the thing that I notice is the importance of the round shape of the satellite dish. Covering that round object with your finger while viewing on screen has a dramatic effect, sort of like removing the mole from Cindy Crawford. Is it just me?

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Looking for some advice and information. I am interested in adding the Carl Zeiss Distagon 25mm 2.8 to my K1 lenses. I see this lens is available as a Contax MM mount lens, Nikon ZF, and NikonZF2. Is there an advantage of any one of these over the other? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Ray

    Well in a way one does get that feeling. When I read Will's comments, I was just about to say (post) that unlike your medium format images of the same/similar subject, the K1 images seemed to be of a much cooler temp (processing wide). I didn't know if that was the differences of how the K1 captured the scene vs. the medium format images or whether it simply reflected a cold day and a blueish rendition of the scene.

    Also it has probably to do something with PP. On my monitor I do Find the K-1 image a bit on the greenish side, but it could also be that there is a lot of greenish moisture en green color in the sea. Anyway the images from that same day on the Z turn out to be a lot warmer in colour. Also the Zeiss lenses tend to cool things down. Well it is all very tricky.

    Just received my Leitaxed C/Y Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 35-70.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    I took this one out of the junk pile to try a different approach to processing. Over at Pentax Forums (sorry), K-amps has been sharing some of his PP for some terrific images he's taken with the K-1. Essentially some negative Dehaze, negative Clarity, and less Contrast. Although I've been trying to "be good" with the sliders, this is an opposite approach than I usually take. I skipped over this image in my initial edits in Lightroom and counted it as lost. Also, in the film days, with 35mm, 6x7, and even 4x5, I never ever considered cropping as an approach to take. Now, with the 645D and even the K-1, I'm doing just that regularly. Not sure how big this could be printed with such a crop.

    I've included the out of camera image to show just how much adjustability the K-1 files have.

    K-1, 15-30mm @ 15mm, ISO 100, f/11, 197 seconds

    Sorry for the late answer Quentin, just see this message. I did the conversion myself. It was really easy.
    The C/Y 35-70 zoom is quiet difficult so I had it done.
    I am sure you will like Zeiss 25/2.8. It has a great punch to it. Stopped down it is so sharp all over and it also can focus real close if you might like that.

    And thank you

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Michiel,

    Your Contax/Yashica Zeiss zoom is one of the few C/Y mount lenses that are not the MM variety that Leitax can convert, is it not? I have a cabinet with several C/Y lenses from when I used a duo of RTS's back in the day. I would love to be able to use those lenses, but I thought the Zeiss Leitax conversions were only for the MM C/Y variants. I have the Zeiss 25/2.8, 28/2.8, 50/1.7, 85/1.4, 135/2.8, and the 200/3.5. It would be great to be able to use these, but they are not MM lenses.

    Just wanted to let you know that although I was a slow convert, I am really liking your cityscape (what are you calling them) images. They seem to be an anthropology study or perhaps more archaeological. Your best ones are fascinating. That one higher up on this page is just sublime. I viewed on that for quite some time. Wondering…….of the people that use that center path behind the gate, the moss on the roofs - must be a damp climate, the ornateness of the buildings, the strange (to me) balconies - how do you access them - are there doors behind those blinds. The blinds seem new as are the railings except the middle one. But, on the ground floor the mold or grit has built up. The blind on the left was used in a partially opened fashion. The window to the right is open with those beautiful red flowers. Wow, thats the best part for me. A hint of who lives there. I just don't like those two cars on the right. If it weren't for those…..(just my opinion). Keep up the good work.

    Answered to your question already a few hours ago but this nasty Getdpi thing happened again; logging you out if you think longer then a few minutes about your text. afterwards everything is gone. well here we go again.

    My 35-70 zoom has the highest aperture number in green so it must be a MM lens. There is an option for your 50/1.7 AE lens with mount and instructions on the Leitax site. For some of your other lenses i would drop David from Leitax a mail and ask if he can convert them.

    Actually this is a project I have been working on for a long time and i hope to turn it in a book soon called Opale et Abâtre after the coastnames. It is a photographic journey from North to south from Berck to Le Havre.
    In deed there is a lot of rain in this territory and therefore al lot of moisture and texture. Out of season these places are often very desolated. I am attracted to the surreal solitude of it in combination with the different levels created by the cliffs.

    Encouraged by your success, Michiel, I have ordered a Zeiss 25mm F/2.8 and the Leitax mount conversion. If it works, (i.e. if I don't mess it up) the possibilities of other Zeiss or Leica lens conversions is quite exciting, particularly given that Pentax have too few really good lenses and there are so few other alternatives.

    This is all the more so because, after lengthy comparative testing, I have concluded the Irix 15mm F/2.4 is not quite good enough. Difficult to focus accurately, and when focused, a little less sharp than the 15mm end of the Pentax 15-30mm F2.8 which is very sharp and reliably so when lens correction is set in firmware. With a camera like the the KI, to take full advantage of pixel shift, I need to work with reliably sharp lenses. The Irix just falls short, and in some shots looks downright soft. Might be my sample is flawed, but nearly-good-enough is not good enough. Pity, given its great strength is no CA.

    So here's hoping!

    Thanks for getting back to me with a response, I really appreciate it. I will email David at Leitax to see what options I might have. Good luck with your book project.

    ...and a Cornish gated field.



    This a not quite perfect Silkypix converted pixelshift shot. Some moving branches have left a few visible artefacts.

    Tried as a colour shot, but I prefer it in monochrome.

    This is all the more so because, after lengthy comparative testing, I have concluded the Irix 15mm F/2.4 is not quite good enough. Difficult to focus accurately, and when focused, a little less sharp than the 15mm end of the Pentax 15-30mm F2.8 which is very sharp and reliably so when lens correction is set in firmware. With a camera like the the KI, to take full advantage of pixel shift, I need to work with reliably sharp lenses. The Irix just falls short, and in some shots looks downright soft. Might be my sample is flawed, but nearly-good-enough is not good enough. Pity, given its great strength is no CA.

    So here's hoping!
    I did expect that the IRIX wouldn't be good enough for you. It is a difficult lens to work with. Anyway 15mm is most of the time to wide for me, so I wan't use it much, especially while traveling. To big.
    I take the FA 20, which is nice and small, with me.

    Did you buy version I or II of the Zeiss 25? Version one has that little ugly thing on it from the older ai lenses. If not it may be a bit more difficult, but not to much, to convert.
    The old version did not have to go to all the procedures instructed. That's why it was so easy. Did you buy a caliper yet?

    Hi Michiel

    The Irix is a near miss. Perhaps a version 2 will tweak things a bit. It is a great idea and very small for such a wide lens, but just not quite good enough. I can be quite difficult to please!

    I am awaiting delivery of the 25mm F/2.8 zeiss this week, and the conversion kit from Leitax. The lens is Version 2. I have read the instructions and it looks like a question of working methodically and carefully. I will ask my builder for a caliper. What could possibly go wrong?

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    At the risk of boring folks with the same image, here is the above photo as the K-1 intended it to be with all it's non-cropped pixels. Well almost. The pano was scared into existence because of the rogue leaves that remained from my poor housekeeping at capture time. A bit of cloning and spot healing did away with them bad leafy pixels. Cheating I suppose. The right bottom corner is a bit mushy. This was one of the first photos with the 15-30 where I was so close to the foreground. Having never shot with anything as wide as a 15mm before, I thought I'd be OK with depth of field. I will have to learn to be a bit more careful going forward.

    The Huron Islands and Mountains (Michigan's version of mountains) and Lake Superior from Point Abbaye.

    (I had to redo my photoshop edits because I originally cropped in Lightroom. After posting this, I see it has a slightly different color balance, its more vivid and contrasty. Darn. I thought I did things almost the same).

    Very calm this morning just before sunrise. K1, Pentax 77mm limited.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Shot with the K-1 and D FA* 70-200 @ 200mm this past fall. A year before, I did a very similar image at the same little ripple with the 645D and the FA 645 200mm on it. This was a bit of color from the far bank reflected in the river at Bond Falls in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Hello Quentin,

    Lovely image!

    Incidentally, regarding lenses for the K1, I picked-up a Zeiss 28mm f2 in Pentax ZK mount on eBay from Japan.

    It is wonderful and it has one of the most beautiful renderings of any wide angle lens.

    I have even found brand new Zeiss ZK 35mm f2 lenses on ebay.

    Enjoy!
    Mike

    Mike,

    Thanks for the generous comments. I await the arrival of the Leitax conversion kit for a new Nikon fit Zeiss 25mm lens. I hope my efforts to convert it are a success! Might try a few others if I succeed.

    First on my list would be the Zeiss Macro Planars 50/2 and 100/2.

    Michiel,

    I agree - they are next on my list. I had the 60mm and 100mm when I had my Contax RTSII and they are superb!

    The lens and the Leitax conversion kit are both here. I hope to do the conversion this weekend when the caliper and abrasive sheets arrive.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Today, I completed the conversion of a Zeiss 25mm F/2.8 Nikon fit ZF.2 to Pentax K mount using the Leitax replacement mount kit.

    This required some careful work, including sanding down the aperture ring so it will not fowl the Pentax K1 body.

    The Leitax instructions are admirably clear and accurate and the replacement K mount is well made.

    Pleased to say it all went well and the 25mm Zeiss now fits perfectly on the K1. Obviously, I now have to stop down meter, but that is not an issue for me.

    I look forward to taking a few test shots soon.

    Re: Fun with images taken with the Pentax K1

    Nice Quentin! And now some pictures
    The only thing is that the aperture ring is so close to the body you can hardly see it, although not a big problem for me. I hardly change it.

    Michiel

    Stop (me) spending my money

    Anyway, I like the lens - something "relaxed" about it's presentation.

    Bulbs of a different kind in the garden:



    And a frosty morning at home



    Both with the Zeiss 25mm

    Cameras and lenses can influence the way you shoot and what you shoot. There is a "look" to many Zeiss lenses that is very appealing and I can see that in your work, Michiel. In fact Zeiss used to emphasise that look in a book they published like an extended brochure, years ago on Zeiss Contax lenses
