It was dark out there only lit by a small porch light. I was in my office and looked out the window to see the two Raccoon cubs coming for water.
I had the Tamron 70-200 2.8 mounted and fired through the window. Focus lock was instant in the low light....love the K1, and love the fast and sure AF. Some complain, but it is very seldom that I try to shoot speeding bullets, so for me it is wonderful!

1/60 handheld (great SR!) f2.8 70mm @ ISO 12800...works for me! ...oh yeah...it was shot in Crop Mode.....gotta love it!



BTW- If you are shooting a Canon or Nikon with the Tammy 70-200 don't try this at home. The Tammy has no IS so you will need some good SR at 1/60 handheld...and you don't have it...do you?

Regards!

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!

Thanks Wpresto! There is, or used to be, an Arabian Nights show in the similar style... never made it to that one, but figured it's a similar deal? I was just reading a post somewhere that Pentax has some form of 3D AF tracking if you use Scene Analyze Auto exposure mode? I was shooting in full Manual... hmmm... I thought it was pretty durn good already, but ya never know what could be improved. I guess I need to go back read my manual, heh heh.

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?).

Thanks David! Very kind. It was a fun night of knights! heh.

Rondec, You are my hero. All those young kids (we raised 4 ourselves) and you can still get all the nice toys. When ours were young, I had to get Ricoh SLR's (Two XRM.s) as they were the best value for the money. Wait a minute, I am sensing a trend that seems to tie in with the look on Eliot's face. Hmmmmmmmmmmm Something is going on here?

Thank you.

I guess I'm lucky in that my wife and I both share photography as something we enjoy doing and she shoots professionally. Most of the money she makes shooting weddings we put back in gear, so it hasn't been terribly expensive to have nice gear. If she didn't make money with the gear, I would probably be making do with a K5 II and a DA 18-135. Well and probably a DA 15 too -- I couldn't do without that lens...

Reading your reply, after "DA 18-135" I was like "Uhmmm, wait a minute... "...

Found this interesting to frame with 4:3 ratio. Using one of the built in black and white filter of the K1.

New to the K1, having jumped directly from a (much used and beloved) K20
What the K1 can do is turn back the FA 20-35 to a very fine and light UWA



Its high ISO capabilities and great SR made it great fun to use hand held in this dark gorge



The 43 becomes a wide enough landscape lens



The 77 gets as wide as the 50 was on aps-c - so now I have a gem of a lens for one of my favorite FOVs




Its insane ISO and great SR make the A*300 so EASY to use (it was a challenge on the K20 at times!). Also with the big, bright viewfinder and the much more precise AF confirmation, I don't need the split screen any more



DR is also almost limitless



and the Astrotracer is just so easy to use. Thi is my 1st attempt at stars

Also the resolution jumps from "hey, look how well it resolves these details" to "what? that micro cobweb was NOT there, i assure you!!"

This is with the dfa 50 macro, PSR on



...and this is an enlargement of above (and yes I can really assure you, that cobweb was not to be seen with the naked eye! )
