A friend of mine who teaches a couple of photography classes at a community college asked me about some good sample images. Students are always asking her about ASP-C vs Full Frame and how many megapixels do I need? I sent her to your Flickr page since you have 24MP Fuji and Sony files as well as 36MP K-1 files and you processing is pretty consistent across all of the images. She says she showed her students +/-30 images from your Flickr stream as wells as images from some other photographers who shoot m/4.3 and some from other APS-C and FF cameras. It was approximately 100 images and 100 students (3 classes) rating images simply on the subjective image quality. I don't know anything about the methodology or scoring, but she did tell me that your K-1 (all taken with the FA* 85mm) files where scored the highest by the students. I know 100 students at a community college doesn't mean very much, but I thought that it was interesting. The second highest came from a Nikon Df with a Nikon 58mm F/1.4. Third place was the A7III (images from multiple photographers). Canon 7DII took 4th and images from a Panasonic G9 took 5th. Images from a Fuji XT-2 took 6th. She says the difference between 3rd and 6th was literally 2 votes each. Not significant at all. The only two that stood out were the Pentax K-1 and the Nikon Df and both of those had the best glass which has more to do with it than the sensor. I thought it was interesting and I've been meaning to pass it on for a few months now. She was only selecting images that she thought were really excellent regardless of sensor size or brand, so it kinda of makes sense that there wasn't much difference in scoring across all the images. She didn't select any bad or average images.
That might be the best tribute to Pentax ever written.

A beautiful set of images, compositionally as well as being super sharp too.

Yeah I waited for ages to see if it would stick its tongue out (licking the air which they seem to do occasionally), but it wasn't performing
I always find if you stand on the tail end, the tongue comes out when it shrieks...

Yeah I waited for ages to see if it would stick its tongue out (licking the air which they seem to do occasionally), but it wasn't performing, and I was running late for an event, so I just had to be content with what I had, heh.
I waited on the blue tongue of two different captive skinks, and one that was active did flick it out from time to time, sometimes when it's face was at least half hidden by a rock or other landscape bit in its container, but mostly it went in-out impossibly fast. I'd have to keep the camera on high-speed continuous shooting to capture it. I've caught the tongue flip of a Komodo dragon a couple of times, ditto for several snakes, but the blue-tongue skink was i-m-p-o-s-i-b-l-e. No way I could have reflexes quick enough to capture it with a camera as it emerged.
