K-5 and 31mm 1/8 ltd

Just got my replacement body back for B&H. Also pulled the trigger on the 31 ltd.

Just a couple of quick shots in the back yard to test rendering, sharpness, and color. This is wide open at 1.8, 1/2500 ISO 400. Really handled the screen like a champ. No moiré!





I think I am going to love this lens! Still have to spend some quality time with it and get to know it.

The K-5 is the answer for me. Tired of carrying my 5DMKII and 3 Zeiss lenses around! Now it's the 15, 31, 77 ltd trilogy! Tried Nikon and an NEX also, but this setup is the real deal, and beats all the other solutions.

YMMV

Didn't forget the 43! It's a fine lens. But at a 35mm equiv of around 70mm just not a focal distance I use much.

I use the 15 for 24mm, and the 31 for 50mm, and the 77 for all around excellence at
123mm.

Still using my 5DII and Zeiss 21,50,100, so it keeps things more in perspective for
me when I switch between the two.

I am however considering the 43 for portrait work. We'll see...

Everybody is different though!

Very cool work Andras, really like the tones and the feeling in the shots. I'm normally not a huge BIF guy, but that crane shot is stunning....

I'd like to say +1 .. what he said (tho doesn't everything look better when larger? ). I'd I'd definitely love to know the post processing technique you used on the 1st & 2nd one. The fineness or the detail, sharpness yet jaggie free, punchy colorfulness ... outstanding. Please do tell how (knowing full well you started w/something exceptional then took it from there)

No. Only very good photos look better larger. Most of mine look better small.
