My first wave of K-01 shots

Some test shots with various lenses - enjoying the focus peaking - dont think I have quite dialed in the best settings / pp for this sensor yet. But having fun nonetheless.

DA 40 ltd

Helios 44M

Helios with raynox - testing focus peaking.

Vivitar 105 macro... testing to see if I could mf in the sun with the lcd and focus peaking (excuse the blown highlights) this was just a focus test. It is tough to focus!

DA40 so sharp at 2.8

Thanks for looking.

Always open to any tips, tricks or magic you have to offer.

Nice set of photos. Focus peaking is a great feature that I use quite a bit with my Helios 44-2.

Nice variety of subjects Billy Joe. Nice sharpness, good depth of field on others. Good demonstration of the camera and lenses!
