Greetings to participants of the forum! I had the opportunity for a few hours to test new items Pentax. In my possession was Pentax camera K3 second version. As well as the two new telephoto designed for full frame. I quote below pictures taken this technique ..

Nice images. Well done. Thank you for posting these.

The 70-200 looks very sharp and contrasty.

What were your impressions of using the lens?

Thanks for the feedback! Lenses like both .. Almost all the photos in a post made on aperture 2.8. The only thing - the lens is large and heavy. But everyone who requested a full-frame should be prepared for that! )

Great photos! Besides being heavy, what are your other impressions of the lens? AF speed? AF-C (tracking) ability?

I would be in the market for one, but I just picked up a Sigma 70-200mm HSM II that I've been eyeing for a long time... :-(

to third-party glasses, D-FA 70-200 has at least one advantage - serious protection against dust and moisture. According to many years of experience of using 50-135, for this I just prefer this lens. Say something about the thorough work of AF in those conditions, and for a short time ... Quite fast and accurate focusing ..Really liked the work of the focus motor - fast and silent. But in order to create an accurate understanding of the speed of focus, I need to try it when shooting sports. Well, the optical properties - as I said, almost all the photos taken on the diaphragm 2.8. while sharpness pleases.

Well, well, a second Pentax ambassador - or should I say, the first (as the join date predates Kenspo's?). Nice to see Ricoh Europe appreciating talent and hard work.
I'm looking forward to hear your impressions about Pentax products, Pentax in general etc - and, of course, to see more such images.

Awesome photos from the new setup; looks like we got a winning combination there (potentially even better with FF?).

Thanks a lot for sharing!!

Looks very impressive indeed. No money and love though for either the FF or these lenses.
