Ho un Hoya Pro1 CPL slim che ha una buona tenuta, ma non blocca il cofano, si puņ ancora estendersi. Ci potrebbe essere lieve vignettatura a F4, ma niente che non possa essere risolto in PP. In F5.6 - F8, č andato del tutto.


Sorry for the poor Italian What I was trying to say was:
I have a Hoya Pro1 slim CPL which has a tight fit but it doesn't block the hood, you can still extend it. There might be very slight vignetting at F4 (or maybe it's just light fall-off), but nothing that can't be fixed in PP. By F5.6 - F8, it's gone altogether.

Haven't used this lens enough to justify its cost I guess Here are a few from the World Pentax Day #7 (17 April 2010) w/ an IR converted Ds2 and DA15:

Silly. Exactly the opposite of what I intend with threads like these, I want as many people posting images as possible - it helps inspire me. Especially now, when I'm incredibly busy with other things and have no time to shoot or spend in forums, really


(BTW, Frank, Doug, all, excellent shots!)

Ah, thanks for clearing that up!

I've been going through phases of using it a lot then not using it so much. Recently I've been using it a lot:

Great shots Marc (and everyone). I was starting to begin that LBA itch between the 15mm and the 21 mm. I do a lot of shots with people and was wondering if you or anyone can posts some further 'environmental portraits' but also some candid up close street photography shots. I am not sure the 15 might be too wide. Which would be more suitable? Any thoughts?

I figure you can easily crop the 15 to simulate a 21mm FOV when necessary - and it's most than sharp enough to withstand this - but stitching the 21 to simulate a 15mm FOV is not as easy. Aside from that, focal lengths are kind of a personal thing, but I found with my 18-55 I almost never used it between 18 and 55, but used it at 18 quite a bit. So 15 made more sense to me than 21. YMMV.

I'll keep posting shots as I take ones worth posting!

Very nice shots. I found I did use the kit lens at around 22-24mm as well as the extremes, so I keep the DA21 around with the DA15. It doesn't take up much extra space.

Thanks, Marc.

That is what I was kind of thinking. The collector/gear person in me would love to have both the 15 and the 21. But at >1K bucks for both, that's too much for me right now.

Keep posting.
