Portraits with the Pentax DFA* 50mm F1.4 at Japan-Day, Düsseldorf, Germany

Tried some portraits at last weekend's Japan-Day. The event draws tons of cosplayers from all over Germany and most of the time we get good weather, too.
As cosplayers are quite open to being photographed I grabbed the opportunity.
I continue to like the lens' rendering and it is really good for this type of subjects.

Maybe you like some of them.

Very impressive! I am wondering if they were FF or APS-C shots and which camera model.

They were shot using the K-1.
