Not a big fan of big lenses, very unwieldy and embarrassing to pull out in public plus they are usually pretty disappointing when it comes to sharpness. The Pentax 150-450 although living up to big and embarrassing seems to break the rule of unsharp. Nice. The K-1 is one excellent camera, I haven’t shot my Canon DSLR for a while but I can safely say that the K-1 is a better experience all round. Its a testement to Pentax that with the same sensor as the Nikon D810 the K-1 can out perform the Nikon- well done Pentax.
Really nice monochrome from the K1 and the Sigma 35mm Art. Also used the old 43mm 1.8 and the 77mm 1.8 both of which are surprisingly good with loads of personality.
The Pentax K-1 goes on location and shoots some old time music.
Got to try the K-1 and the 100 macro while in Canberra. Tiny for a modern lens but it seems to do the trick. Impressed by the K-1 camera, seems to handle just about anything including very wet rain forest.
Shooting with the K-1 for a couple of weeks now and its proving to be a good workhorse camera. I really wanted to test the resolving power and sharpness of the sensor. I find that the Pentax seems to shoot slightly over exposed to what I am used to but that may be the nature of the beast.
