A couple of quick test shots with my new K-S1, grabbed in the relentlessly gloomy light that we've been having around here lately. I'm loving the camera's small size and light weight -- seems like the perfect match for my Takumars. I'm looking forward to seeing what it can do when we finally get some good light.

With the Super Takumar 20mm/4.5:



With the SMC Takumar 50mm/1.4:

Looking good, Dave. I, too think this camera would be a good match for some nice MF primes. I came "this close" to ordering one during Samy's blowout sale. I still just might.....

Thanks Paul. So far I'm liking the K-S1 very much. High ISO performance is excellent, and it produces wonderfully sharp results with my ancient Takumars. It's about the same size and weight as an M Series film SLR, so it makes a great little companion for manual lenses.

If Samy's is still offering the K-S1 at $199 after the rebate, that makes it the deal of the century. I paid the equivalent of almost $350 here in the UK, and I still think I got a great bargain.

Very nice! Almost half a century later a good photographer can still make beautiful images with that lens.
