These examples are amazing! I just bought this lens for my k1ii about a month ago and I'm practicing and learning with it.
I wonder on full frame, what fstop would you all recommend for shooting a couple, like an engagement shoot while still getting that nice bokeh and both people in focus?
It seems depth of field is shallower on full frame. For one person, I shoot wide open or almost wide open at 1.8 - 2.2.
Thanks!
Thatís going to depend on your distance to the subjects. If your close enough for head shots, f/5.6 should give you reasonable out of focus area. Find someone to practice on, and change your distance to them to see the changes.

As @twilhelm mentioned, basically, it depends. Try it out. As with any lens how much defocus you want, distant to and size of subject, affects the look. This lens was however made for this purpose. Just the right amount of compression and DoF, even at tighter apertures if there a bit of space to work with. Easy to get comfortable with it shooting digital.

I had a chance to photograph a dog in foster for one of the local Denver-based rescues, All Points West. As I tend to do with dog shoots, I used the 77mm FA Limited almost exclusively. These were all taken on the K-3.




I'm always amazed at how well it captures fur, the blood vessels in the ears, eye detail, and so forth.

On the K1 I enjoy this lens maybe even more than I did already on APSC (hard to believe)
I find it great for somewhat "condensed" landscapes.

Here are 2 examples from this weekend (x-posted).

I had a chance to photograph some colleagues at a work event last night. Light (for all but the last shot) was bounce flash off the ceiling. Post work was fairly minimal, some contrast reduction and dodging out shadows around a couple of peoples' eyes. Here are some of the shots with which I'm happy.


He wanted a rougher-looking, grittier photo. We also did a more lighthearted photo, but I like how this one turned out.













These were some of the best, but all around, a generally decent evening.
