This is shot with the SMC PENTAX-A ZOOM 1:3. 35-105 in a white sales tent in the shadow. All the colours of the two jackets are excatly as I remember them. JPG straight from the camera, no PP. It is much sharper than it looks due to the reseize.

Love the pupil Dilation on this shot. By the way, seems the site compression is affecting the sharpness of the shot, is that true or just me ?
Well, certainly more detail's restored if you look at the version before uploaded here, @K-amps:

You can see better the rain droplets in her hair, but to be honest my shot's just not sharp in the first place!

She was a pretty serious person with the other shooters, but I kept talking and wore her down to get this ever-so slight lightening of her mood and clicked while it was still there.

Interesting. Have you tried the skin tones #1 and #2 ? Looks like the camera is processing the raw files, also I couldn't really tell the difference (I need to get some subject with good looking skin :-) )
As part of the learning process, I do all my own processing, @Biz-engineer - and you can see by my Gallery, plenty of it (clackers's Album: Samples - PentaxForums.com) - so don't use any of those JPEG settings.

I was in Yellowstone last Friday through Sunday. This feature was one I had to shoot. I took some photos of it in 2013 1nd 2014 with my K5 and K5-IIs. They simply could not focus on it. Every shot using auto focus was soft and when using focus confirmation on manual focus lenses it was always off. Either the heat or steam seemed to be the problem. Well I tested again using my K1 and D FA28-105 lens. It seems to have nailed it. I have had my camera for 8 days now and it's performance at Yellowstone has left me very happy with my decision to get one.

Well done! I just love the colors.

For Yellowstone, did you find 105mm long enough?

Wow K-amps. You really know how to make that 15-30 dance. I'm thinking of buying one. Do you have any reservations on its sharpness or performance in general. I seems a bit large.

Thx

Thanks John.

The lens is well designed to do what its supposed to do. When I had made the decision to invest in a Pentax system earlier in the year, my idea was to get a body and a 14mm Samyang and have a killer Landscape system. Since then, I have grown to dislike the Samyang's Starburst pattern. The D-FA 15-30 has beautiful Starbursts and is very sharp. CA is very low and this is a very sharp lens. My concerns are price, (Tamron version sells for $899 and has IS/VR) , and Tamron QC... in their other lenses, there is a common issue of lens decentering after some use and onion Bokeh. I have not experience that in this lens so far, if there is decentering, its very very subtle (within the margin of my informal test). Lastly, this is more of a 16mm equivalent on the wide end rather than 15mm, Tamron's FL numbers are to be taken with a grain of salt.

With all the concerns out of the way, its a great lens... period. Its gotten me some great shots, and is very sharp, I am happy with the decision.

If you are concerned about price, wait for the Irix 15mm, which seems to be an upper end Samyang. If they have given it a nice set of aperture blades, it could be a winner.... me I could not wait :-D
