I am shooting for VOGUE in Paris on May 15th and will be using my Pentax K5's for the stills and a Pentax K-01 for shooting the behind the scenes video's.

Will post once the fashion spread comes out

Just posted my Harper's BAZAAR Cover & Editorial Spread shot with the K20D Here: Harper's BAZAAR Pentax Shoot
I wonder if you'd share what lenses you rely on most during such a shoot.

For this shoot it was quite simple, the Pentax DA*16-50 f2.8 and DA*50-135 f2.8 lenses.

VOGUE Magazine accepted all of our images, thus it will be a 12 page spread. We aren't yet sure if we got the cover, as the competition and politics is pretty ferocious. We shall see.
JFYI, Video was done with the Pentax K-01

If I were to look at most of my stuff, I would state the following:

Pentax DA 40 Ltd
Pentax DA 12-24
Pentax DA 16-45
Pentax DA* 16-50
Pentax DA* 50-135 a few times only...

and all the other lenses would follow...I have most of them

Beautiful as usual, Ben. You shooting any video on site or only stills?
For our VOGUE shoot, our videographer Frédérique Renaut used the new Pentax K-01 with the Pentax 18-250 and their kit 40mm lens. Prior to that the video's were done with the Kx Link Below:

Amazing photographs for Harper's BAZAAR. I'll join the choir of praise.

Congrats on the new K-5(s)!

Since Chuck Norris's tears cure cancer, do Ben's tears cure oily aperture blades?
I bet they can clear haze on lenses too!

anyway jokes aside, incredible work you have there for Vogue, benjikan! Thanks for the reassurance that APS-C is all I really need to go pro. Your works in the fashion industry are a part of my daily inspirations, as I also strive to be a pro like yourself (but in a different photographic field though). Hope to see more awesome work from you in the coming days!

...and I actually thought the stills were shot with FA Limiteds... video with the 18-250?! I always thought superzooms weren't very good for video... more myths disproved!

Just because someone uses a tool for a job doesn't make it a good one. A superzoom is very, very far from ideal for video. That doesn't mean you can''t do it, though.

If you use ACR for your raw conversions check out the Huelight K5 camera profiles skin tones are excellent and they give a great starting point for PP.
