Is it too late to get my wife to sign a prenup that allows me to buy all the lenses I want without having to worry about divorce?
Just buy her something she wants at the same time

What technique was used to take for example the 3rd color photo? Handheld or tripod? It does not have very high IQ when viewed in large size.
All the shots were handheld. The IQ is there if you find the few places where it's actually in focus. The depth of field is quite narrow. Would likely be a little more perfect with a tripod.

Indeed. I have found handholding hi-res cameras a bit impossible to make any proper use of them without a flash.

It is certainly a great lens. But it had some big shoes to fill. When did Pentax ever make a poor 50mm (or 55mm)? I like the f2.5 shot.

Yeah, you end up going to extremes to improve a 50mm lens much. I do wish they had a DFA water resistant full frame line of f2 lenses like Fuji's. Could be Limiteds, or not. Just nice, modern smaller primes that would appeal to both full frame and aps-c users.

No, I like sleeping too much. These days I even have trouble setting my alarm for early morning. Come fall I will take it on some night walks downtown.
