My K5 is expected to arrive this week. I will soon honor your request without any problems.

On a seriouis not, I am quite worried. These pics have set my expectations so high that they may not be realistic. I may break down and cry after taking the first few pics.

Prosto, I think my K-5 is broken. I've not been able to get it to lure such beautiful women. ; )

Why don't you come over here some day and perform a full diagnostics? I think your K-5 would be perfectly fine

Not much wrong with what's in front of the bokeh, either.

I believe he said earlier that it was a cheap Samyang (or variant) 85 F/1.4 lens.

Awesome Bokeh.. all the shots have the same bokeh magic as well. Thanks for getting my LBA juices going...

My Samyang (Vivitar Version) renders near identical (well, close) to most of these in contrast, IQ and sharpness - of course I do not shoot portraits like prosto, mine are of random hot woman when they are not looking

Best lens on the market for the money!

you are welcome honestly I can't say it's awesome, but it's quite descent once you get used to it. a very solid performer for it's money - I agree.

I'm planning to test a new set of water/lighting eqiupment next Tuesday (17th) at a studio (since the weather still sucks for being a Spring time) and definetely will need some assistance with it. Will you be on time? How long would it take to make it from Australia to here?
