Another macro shot from yesterday morning with the K1 + my old 200mm macro. The beetle was playing squirrel-around-the-tree on a mullein and I could not get an angle that avoided some intrusion by a foreground leaf. As this is a considerable crop, more than equivalent to going to APS-C crop mode, I might have obtained a bit more detail by using my K3 with its greater pixel density, but, the camera was low so I was using LV with the screen angled up. With the K3 I would have been down on my knees - - correction - - I could not have framed the image from the same low position. I must try the 200mm on the K1 with my 1.4LX and 2LX converters. On film, those combinations worked very well.

Well, the missus and I attended some rather fun dinner theater over the holiday. Very dark venue. The K-1 focused in areas I couldn't even see. I underexposed a little for most of the time to help keep shutter speed up and ISO below 3200. Amazing what you can recover from K-1 RAW!
All pics with either the Tamron 28-75 or 70-200, used ISO from 800 to 3200... 800, with the shadows pushed, I think looks cleaner than 3200? I dunno... maybe I'm just need to learn better PP.






No bicycles weaving towards me, just knights on horses in the dark with a spotlight... easily reproducible CAF lab test, right?









This guy who played the king was a real character. He was really into it. Heh heh.





This was my first real outing with the K-1 in the dark and fast moving subjects. I had to do some searching in the menu's to find the shutter release priority...





I thought the 70-200 did better at focusing quickly than the 28-75... I also think I might need to do a Fine Focus adjustment on the 28-75... haven't got around to it yet. All lenses are just at defaults.





Our Knight to cheer for was the yellow/red outfit in our section. I thought the K-1 CAF did better than I dared expect. Sure, there is some motion blur from slow shutter in the dark room, but the focus seemed to track the subjects just fine as they ran by us.





Is this too many pic's for one post? I've never tried this before... Hmmm... Apologies if this is not appreciated! I don't post often, so I guess I am making up for lost time.










OK, only 3 more...








Last one... really...





That's all folks. Hope somebody out there enjoyed them and didn't take up too much bandwidth.
Later,
Eric

Eric: Nice collection of images. I did enjoy them. We went to a dinner show with central arena, horses and such that's under Dolly Parton's name down south, so it was country-Western themed. Most amusing bit: audience participation in a Western-style horseshoe pitching contest - - they used U-shaped toilet seats. One guy from the audience threw two out of three ringers across the width of the arena!

Great shots! #7 is perfect in my eyes. The highlighted knight with the dark backgtound makes a good story.
The diatribing king is also very good (3 or 4?).

Nice, that first one. I would say this is very creative use of flare?

You kept the nice detail in the wings.......very fine shot!

You guys are doing some fine work with the K1...makes viewing very pleasurable!

All I got today was another dove...but the light fell on him nicely again!

A crop of a Crop Mode shot...works for me!

K28/3.5.





3 shots with the FA43/1.9.
With its compact size and reportage style fov, I think its one of the best walkabout lens.
I still need more time with it to get used to the wider FOV compared to the 50mm though, since I am so used to the 50mm fov.

I must confess, this wasn't taken with the K-1 (because that would mean I would have to buy x2 K-1's) but she's definitely a beauty

K-1 along with the Silver FA 77mm 1.8 and the Black FA 43mm 1.9

Trying out the K28/2 for landscape and taken with K1.

I have uploaded the full size, if you wish to have a look.


Center - not my kind of starburst but not too bad.


Bottom Right edge - I felt it is quite good with nice sharpness even at the edge.


Right Center Edge
