Thanks, eaglem. The thunderstorm was sudden, and I did not take tripod with me.
You got lucky getting a lightning while shooting handheld.
Very nice BTW

The DR of the K1 is impressive. This is a single shot with shadow recovery. The lighting on the leaves is from the Sun, I was shooting below the tree and the top leaves are actually facing the sun

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.

Thanks for the info Erictator... I'll try the yardstick thing. Only problem is focusing from a long distance on a small target. Don't know what I'm hitting with the large center spot box in k1.

What I wanted to take a photo of...


"Uhh excuse me, hurry up please."


"Human, I said move it!"


The new is never far behind the old.


An older photo that kind of got lost in the pile.

A few from D-FA 24-70 f/2.8:

The DA* 50-135 + Kenko 1.4x deliver remarkably consistent results in FF mode, that TC never leaves the lens now.
