Nice sunset at the house yesterday. Three exposure HDR using Google Nik... which is one reason I can't totally leave Windows and LR behind for Linux/RawTherapee, etc. I really like SilverEfex Pro and HDR Efex.

And sometimes when you're HDR'ing you don't mess around. You really gotta HDR.

Apparently you can shoot the K-1 and the DA 15 in square crop and it works. Unless you just dislike square crop (20MP files) , you have plenty of reason to use the K-1 and DA 15.
I have a Tamron 17mm lens for FF.
Most of the time, I had my FF 17mm with me, rather than the DA15.

This is a shot I wasn't entirely happy with originally. Some playing in PP has improved it IMHO.

Messing around with the new filmic module in Darktable. I adore this lens: so compact and versatile!

Question for the group

Does anyone have experience using the 15mm on cropped mode on the K-1? Would you get the 15mm or something else for use on the K-1? Thanks in advance for any comments.

The photos in my post just before yours were taken with the K1 and 15mm. Itís still a great lens, itís just no longer ultra wide angle like with aps-c cameras. To be honest though, Iíd rarely need that much of a spread for my photos. It would be nice to still have the option, but itís no huge loss for me

? I'm confused about what you are saying. It is still as wide or wider depending on if you crop. Even cropped to exactly apsc it is the same angle of coverage as before. A full frame 22-23mm is going to be about the same angle of coverage (with more pixels) as the 15 and if you manually crop it could be slightly wider. Cropped will of course only give ~16mp images.
