Nature photography with K-1
Lens: 60-250/4 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Finland 
Posted By: Stickl, 05-10-2016, 12:49 PM


First photos with my K-1 - all taken with DA* 60-250/4 in FF mode! Bit of vignetting but it's not a problem at all. What am I able to say bout K-1 - I really don't know, it's so amazing that it's beyong words! As you can already see from these photos, noise is low and IQ is outsanding, SR works amazingly, FPS isn't problem either after K-5, AF is improved a lot etc etc

This one is taken with DA* 55, it works very well too on this camera.

Note: these are not SOOC, a bit PP done in LR.
Feedback will be appreciated!

I will post more K-1 photos in time to come, feel free to follow my homepage to see my K-1 photos! There's also EXIFs for photos and you can view them a bit bigger there.

Good job, you are certainly exploring the boundaries of exposure on the camera. The goose shots appear to be very early morning or dusk and are very striking images.

Thank you very much!!
Well, those swan photos are taken one hour after sunset - within ISO 3200-6400 and 1/80-1/100s handheld so SR is very good!
