Pentax k-r, 31mm & 77mm

Someone asked for some pic's with the k-r and the lenses, so here they are. As people pointed out in a previous post there was a front focusing issue in some of my shots. I did some focus tests and found that my 31mm had to be dialed back to -6 to resolve the front focus. No FF problems were noted with the 77mm, it was left at 0.

I'm still getting used to shooting with fast primes, always had zooms. I do like these lenses, but there are times when I wish I could zoom in or out. Taking a step forward or backward is always sufficient.

Very nice looking combos, thanks for sharing! I have to start saving for that 77mm, already have 35mm, 50mm and 135mm primes, so that should close the gap nicely.

I bought a DA* 16-50 to start with because a friend at work has the Canon equivalent for his T1i. Having read a lot more in the past few months since getting my K-r, I kind of wish I'd gone with a couple primes like these. (Though given the price, maybe a cheaper 35mm lens along with the 77mm.)

Still, I've been very happy with the results from the 16-50.

Nice Pictures

I have not yet purchased my K-R but will be soon. This will be my first true DSLR and these pictures of the camera and the other one does give me incentive to get it. With monies being tight I will be using the lenses that come with the camera until I can afford other lenses to go along with them.

Thanks Pascal...that's exactly what I needed!!!! Now I'll able to bring the power of creative visualisation to bear in finding that MIJ FA31 for my new K-r.

They don't look too bad together really.....I expected it to look more like a toucan
