Testing the K17mm Fisheye with the K70, cropped, I'm finding it more and more difficult to get accurate manual focus but I like the colours in this one.

Excellent shot!

Thanks,
I bought the 30/2.8 first and thought nothing could outdo it, but then I got the 28/3.5 and, wow, Every time I use it I'm more impressed.
It's got to the stage where the 30 gets left at home more often than not.

The 30/2.8 is a very nice lens, sharp, contrasty and renders blues and yellows nicely. I bought mine here after it had sat in the Marketplace for days.

The 28/3.5 is a gem. Somehow it seems to promote the central subject with a verve and pop quite uncommon among 28’s.

But the 35/3.5 is still my favorite of all the K lenses

Not sure which is my favorite, but this is why one should own all three.

Or, if possible, all the Ks.

Long time since I've been on here. But I figured since I only shoot on K lenses, I might as well join the club.

Here's a few samples of mine.

K1000, 1:2/35, Ilford Pan F Plus







K1000, 1:1.4/50, Ilford Pan F Plus



KX, 1:1.4/50, Ilford XP2 Super


KX, 1:1.4/50, Ilford Delta 100







K1000, 1:2.8/105, Ilford Pan F Plus




KX, 1:2.8/105, Ilford Delta 100




KX, 1:2.8/105, Ilford Delta 3200 pushed to 6400

They’re really cool lenses! I bought both here. Unfortunately the 1000 needs really heavy duty legs and a heavy lens extender, and both need a gimbal head, which means I would need Arca Swiss plates. That means I’d also need to replace my ballheads on my regular legs and monopod. I make my plans - but something comes along, and . . .

I’ve used both, but the results so far are unsatisfactory. Aside from technique and practice I need better support.

Here’s the setup gofour3 uses, from his lens review (scroll down).
