Okay it´s time again for some of my shots

Last weekend I finally had the chance to try the K1 at a larger festival - Rockavaria in Munich. Here are some of my shots with the K1 + DA* 60-250 from Powerwolf and Nightwish. Did pp on all of them in Lightroom.

I have to admit, I´m ing impressed with the 36MP of the K1, I really have to get used to it and its crop possibilities. Focus with the 60-250 was not super fast, yet way more reliable then on my K5 when less light was avaiable! I really like the combo, but still the shiny new 70-200 is kinda flirting with me Well maybe santa will carry one for me with him

PS: I was shocked non of the other ~70 photographers used Pentax
Wow, these shots are spectacular!

Using the WIFI mode is handy and convenient for selfie shots, you can use the LiveView to pose some studio pose which usually needs guidance from the photographer, however every shot taken will capture the instance you holding the mobile phone to snapshot, how I wish Ricoh can include a 3sec delay in the next version of Image Sync....
This shot was taken with DAL 55-300 to exclude the lower half body so as not to capture me holding the mobile phone.

And of course, Rupert's cute critters are a joy.
No wonder you are loco!....but thanks anyhow, I appreciate it!
Those are mighty fine shots you posted. If you ever take up Squirrel Shooting you will be a Pro instantly!

Heading out west to Oregon...plan on taking a ton of gorgeous and stunning pictures, maybe even a squirrel or two along the way?

You guys don't hold your breath for those "stunning pictures".......

I do plan on having K1 is a damn fun camera, so glad I have it for this trip!

Best Regards!

Thanks Rupert! I do look forward to your photos from Oregon, a place I'd love to visit one day.

Ken, that is a fantastic use for Image Sync. I have not played with that app much yet. I am surprised the 3 sec delay isn't included. Maybe in an update... Very nice selfie!

Mamiya Sekor 55mm f1.4 in b&w mode. When I downloaded files in LR, it was in color, not like in camera b&w. Interesting. Shot in DNG.

Here are a few random shots I took yesterday. All in FF mode - I have not even tried crop mode yet. I've been sticking with FF lenses. The first two were taken with the D FA 50mm macro. I discovered you can use catch in focus with this lens by activating the focus clamp. This makes me very happy! The last two were taken with the Helios 44k-4 58mm lens at f/2.
Love that Daisy, Superb!

Here's one from the A20 for the Single-In-Challenge

I didn't keep any of my "test photos" from shooting my SMC Pentax-M* 300mm F4 today. But I can say, that this lens is extremely sharp on my new K1. Clearly the sharpest f-stop is 13.

If you don't mind using a manual focus telephoto lens and the "green button" on your K1 camera, you might want to consider the SMC Pentax-M* 300mm F4 lens.

So, there's another old MF Pentax lens for you that performs admirably on the wonderful K1.

In the future I will certainly be posting some photos I'll be taking with this combination...
