Thank you Sage

Its quite hard to take a bad pic with the K5 and the 31. A nice combo. Its funny though. As I was moving away a middle aged woman moved passed me with a Sony DSLR - I saw her looking at the Pentax and I could almost see her sneer in that way gear snobs do.

Great shots guys.

So, I am planning (considering) (ok, already sold on) selling my Tamron 90 Di Macro (great but I rarely use it) and my Revuenon 55 1.2 (which I love but rarely use) for the holy grail itself the 31. Which would complete my three amigos set (plus the 15).

SO? Just do it? 28mmish on APS-C is my fav. Tiny worry about the size/weight and FL vs the 43, I figure it would move my 43 into evening/low weight/low light work. Also would have me set for FF when it happens

Tamron 90 is a great lens. Nice bokeh and a nice walk around lens for some locations. I would hang on to it and just try using it more for general photography before selling it if I were in your shoes.

I agree it is a very nice lens and I have enjoyed it. That said I also have the 77 which is still new to me and size-wise it would win out anytime I go out (plus TBH sharpness aside, there is no comparison in terms of colour and contrast with the Limiteds)

My main motivation for moving to the 31 is that I would hopefully use it more than the 90 and 55 (combined). Anyways guess I've sold myself already hehe (already tried the sigma 30) and I need to close that 15-43mm gap.....er want

A little pricey and large, but the 31mm is fantastic. You will enjoy it Deimos. Though I rather spring for a 2nd hand one and save some money. Afterall, its not exactly a collectors item and is widely available.

I hope my contributions don't take away from the stunning pics on this page. Really like the sets with the old car and the flowers. Wow.
Here is my breakfast nook set x-posted in a couple other areas.

31mm.

You can stop talking yourself down now, Sage97. Your work is uniformly brilliant, and this set is no exception.

I have a MIJ '77 and a 31 and yet I still find the contrast and colour of the Tamron to be very nice. The Bokeh of the Tamron is exceptional and whilst it does suffer some purple fringing it's not nearly as bad as the '77 in that regard. Still, whatever turns you on ....

Cracking set Sage - first one stands out for me but I like the dof and processing on all three. The tones are lovely.

Are you using presets or just playing with the split toning sliders?

Thanks Mark.
I experiment with presets but I always end up adjusting the sliders to taste.
Thanks again.
