Thank you kindly Frederick!


You are killing it with that Sigma Art! Talk about creamy Bokeh! Love the selective B&W + red, I did that with flamingo's once, but the pink on B&W wasn't as vivid as your beautiful reds.

This was taken with my DFA 70-200. I'm still trying to find focus with it. Most of my shots are slightly OOF. Might be the shutter speed. Tried to calibrate the focus, but can't seem to get anything that's not a little fuzzy.

Anyway, this one turned out ok. ISO 1600, hand held, no crop, no saturation adjustment, Topaz DN6 Light RAW setting, No sharpening.

Good start Snydly, get some time to get used to that beast of a lens, and we will all be drooling with envy.

I did a cheater type fine focus adjustment on my Tamron 70-200 f2.8... get a nice brightly marked yard stick or ruler, set it up about at a 45 degree angle, like leaning on a wall about 10ft away, and with the K-1 on a tripod, focus on the 15inch mark precisely, and take a picture (using the viewfinder, not LV!) then look at your preview and zoom in and see where it actually focused. Use the menu and fine focus set for each lens setting and set that one to plus or minus the amount needed to make it hit that 15inch mark perfectly. Don't use artificial light unless you plan to use that lens indoors. In my experience, the type of lighting you zero the lens with effects the accuracy of results in use too.

I am just a hack, and maybe I am nuts, but it works for me. If it makes you feel better, you can go buy an expensive lens calibration tool, or download and print the fold up box rule, but for me, my yardstick works best.

Here is 1 more from the SMC M 100mm F2.8... I really like this and the SMC M 35mm f2.8... so small and easy to fit in my bag. Heh.

Almost 100% zoom of small crop. It's probably cell phone size use of sensor, yet, still amazing to me so much clean detail. Yes, some post in PS, but reasonable.

no vignetting in FF ??
None, maybe just a little at f2.4 but hardly notice it in most of my pictures.

That samyang fisheye is an excellent lens. I had one in Nikon mount and I would say it was my sharpest UWA lens stopped down few stops. It also has an unique projection - center of the image looks almost like normal UWA and FE kicks in towards the edges.

Thanks, eaglem. The thunderstorm was sudden, and I did not take tripod with me.
