Optyczne (the Polish original for Lenstip) has recently posted a quite positive review of the KS-1:

That's a very good technical review. I like how they do all their own very thorough testing. The K-S1 comes out of the test well.

The RAW exposure histogram variance by ISO, and the RGB breakdown by ISO too, are interesting presentations.

Interesting that the camera is set to AF there! CIF?

Optyczne use the Makro-Planar 50 in various mounts
as a standard to calibrate new cameras as they come along.

The lens is one of my favorite 50-somethings,
right up there with the Nokton 58/1.4 and the A50/1.2.
