For Rupert Otis and the gang.
Otis and his gang of Army squirrels appreciate your posting that one! They love doggies ....as long as they can't climb trees!

Not as sharp as I'd like but I liked the pose here.....


JVA- The look on that bird FS posted was one of horror when he saw FS coming with a frying pan.......we do know how FS is with little birdies and his gourmet cooking.

Regards!

60-sec astrotracer with 24-70
Interesting. I am still debating to go 24-70 or 15-30 for some astrophoto shots. I need a lens for hiking/landscapes/astrophoto, and it seems to me 24-70 should fit the bill a bit better than 15-30.

I used a Tamron 24-70 on a Canon (on which the DFA 24-70 is supposedly based on), and now own a DFA-15-30 (which is a much newer Tamron design), and I can say if sharpness is important to you, the 15-30 is very sharp, much so than the copy of the Tammy 24-70 I used to own.

I've got the 15-30 and 24-70. They both outresolve the k-1 sensor when applied properly, and have very accurate AF with my body. I didn't try either for Astro yet (sadly).

There's arguments in favour of each and your final choice may depend on which other lenses you have available. I think that the 15-30 launch prices are finally softening (UK has recently seen 10% codes for this lens for the first time), so I'd be tempted to go for 24-70 first, on the basis that it's more flexible, and 15-30 will hopefully soon be a little cheaper.

Big exception would be if you are doing the northern lights - in that case get the 15-30 and the Samyang 14mm as well! For hiking the combination of 24-70 and Samyang 14mm would be my choice (assuming size and weight is an issue). The weight and diameter of the 15-30 are a minus.

Just my 2p. I dithered for a while as to which one to buy first too. But they are both 'sharp' without a doubt.

Yep, I've seen your gourmet meals and know you can.....and so do the little birdies.

Unlike the problems with the K5 series, the K1 can focus in light so low you can barely see the subject with your bare eyes...and not at all in the viewfinder.

Shot with an old Tamron 18-250 on a dark and cloudy night. The focus light was barely adequate to get a few shots and I had to guess at the composition from what little I could see of them.

The runt of the litter......a friendly little guy that likes to follow me around.


We all get an itch every so often....few of us can scratch our heads with out toes!


Fun little guys!

Regards!

The image of tufa deposits is spectacular Early AM or late PM light to enhance the colors? The sky looks like midday blue.

I suspected that first version of the 10~20 would be more useful on FF. Let mine go to another Pentaxian who I hope is getting fine images with it.
And I really like that night shot.
Thanks WPRESTO.

From the shots can imagine how dark the lighting is and K1's capability to focus up to -3.0ev really helps.

For general walk around, 24-70 is a nicer focal range than 15-30. It is essentially a 16-50 on APS-C versus a 10-20mm on APS-C. The 15-30 is a very nice lens, but it can't take filters and is bigger than the 24-70. Getting a 24-70 and then eventually adding a 14 or 15mm prime would work pretty nicely in my opinion.

Yesterday at Garden By The Bay shooting these SuperTrees, height about 50m equivalent to 16 storeys high.
Previously with K3 + 10mm (APSC) + shooting vertically I still need to tilt the cam up (quite a lot) to capture the full tree, ended up distorted on the sides of the pics.
Yesterday shot with 10mm FF mode is much better though still need to tilt the cam but not as much as shooting in APSC mode.

It makes all the difference Ken....from being totally frustrated like with a K5 ......to getting a decent shot with the K1.

I love those "tree"hots Ken, but don't understand just what they are???

This squirrel comes to the big oak tree about 8 feet from my office windows several times a day and peeks in hoping to get a glimpse of naked girls from NSFW post at PForums.......

The Bigma got him up close this morning.


Regards!
