I have often noted, that many of my images wouldn't be improved by using a K-1 because they are cropped so heavily, but that always leaves the question, ya but what if you could get the image using the full FF sensor?
How about guilty pleasure of endless cropping?

Once you've cropped a K-1 image to APS-c size, you'll get more of those guilty pleasures from your K-3. 24 MP to crop instead of 15 MP. Getting more cropping depends on an image that uses the whole 36 MP, or at least more than 24 of it.

Unless you leave ISO100 or need the better shadow recovery possibility provided by the K-1...
I good light the K-3 gives you more detail but if the light gets not so good then I find that the K-1 gives me better results.

How did you get 15? It's either 24, or 27 depends on how to calculate based on 1.5 crop ratio (I don't know what's the right way)

1.5 crop gives you 15-16 MP on a 36 MP sensor


You divide the 36 MP with the square of 1.5, i.e 2.25 and this gives you 16

SMC PENTAX 28mm f/3.5 on K1

Today I tried out my new-to-me, $190 SMC PENTAX 28mm f/3.5 on my K1 camera.

My testing resulted in the following observations:

1. Lots of vignetting at f/3.5. Gone by f/4
2. Its' sweet spot is f/11 - f/13.
3. Good and sharp, however I have to admit that the much more expensive Sigma Art lenses and Zeiss ZK lenses are a tiny bit sharper (I know because I've previously owned them).
3. Beautiful Pentax colors.
4. Distortion is insignificant

I really like the 24mm and 28mm field of view. I'm quite pleased with this inexpensive little lens. It will easily get me by until Pentax/Sigma/Zeiss some day offer a new premium lens in this range.

Last picture from the Gunpla Expo 2016 at Taka Singapore.
FA50 1.4


Some shots at Funan Singapore, the mall is closing at the end of the month for new development. It's our one stop access to IT and camera products. One less place to go for now.
The Anime Matsuri event which is held here yearly will be the last one.

Shot with my FA*85 in manual mode. My AF had died and i miss shooting with AF. manual focus is not as easy with a thin DOF.
