Our town is host to an awesome music school taught by Doug "Kid" Bangham, a former member of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Kid threw an outdoor "concert on the patio" with his students (from about 5 years old up to middle-age+) last week. He hired me to come shoot and it was the perfect opportunity to try the K-1 in an active concert environment, with lighting ranging from near-full sun to stage lighting only over the course of the evening. I used both my Sigma 24-70 2.8 and the 70-200 2.8

I am consistently impressed with the dynamic range of the K-1. It easily handled shooting into the spots and LEDs without being overwhelmed and blowing out, and yet you can still easily see the performers. I find it takes more tweaking to achieve similar results with the K3

Serious vignetting for a legacy FA. Did you have the hood on? Post some other samples, if you please.
Its the hood that does that. I forgot and left it on.

Looks too dark for an IPA. Red ale?

I've posted lots of K-1 photos elsewhere. (And I think many of them are larger than I can post here). I linked to lots of them in a page of a review of the K-1 that I publish yesterday.
Here is that page of links to lots of photos:

Another issue I remember from my film days, Tiffen & B&W made special "Thin" skylight and polarizer filters, because some UW lenses vignette with a normal filter, and others do it with a normal filter behind the stock hood, because just the filter was added behind the hood... worth mentioning on the K-1 thread, since I see many here testing old lenses on K-1. All lenses I am testing, I remove all filters and hoods, for the quick test at least.


Hoods are nice to have on Tele, but for most wides or ultra wides, I just hold my free hand over side of lens that the sun is coming from to cast a shadow over the front element, usually works as well or better than hoods, heh heh. I think somebody had a gizmo that mounted into your flash shoe with a flex arm like and a black playing card that you could swing into place for similar function.

Lemme see if I can find a pic... yup! B&H even still sells a current version of the thing. These work surprisingly well at reducing flare without vignette in my experience, and are certainly better than no lens hood at all.
