More amazing shots in this thread. Wow!!! I was all excited to post my picture, but now I'm a little embarrassed. Oh well, it's Mother's Day and this is Mama Kitty, so I'm posting it for her!

Seriously, every shot in this thread is awesome. Incredible portraits, beautiful examples of amazing color, sharpness, and bokeh. I have a lot of work to do to be able to take advantage of all this camera has to offer!

Anyway, here is Mama Kitty, taken with the DA*300 at f/4. Happy Mother's Day to all.
What is that lens like on the K1? The focus is a bit twitchy on the K3.

Well, I never noticed a problem on the K-3. But it's fine on the K-1. I did have to dial in a bit of fine focus adjustment. I used LensAlign for that. It seems to be ok now.

It's twitchless.

One of the issues I had with the K-3 RAW files was the red channel bleeding into magenta. The K-1 is doing a much better job with skin tones and the red channel. This image only has sharpening a slight exposure adjustment, and I pulled the red channel down -10 to pull a little out of the red plastic and what was being reflected back. The Sigma 85mm is tack sharp. No lens profile applied. Very happy with the embedded color profile at this point. Hopefully DXO releases an update to support the K-1 and new lenses very soon.

Original Poster
Two samples of the DFA 150-450 with the Pentax DA 1.4X converter. The K-1 atuomatically puts the combination to crop mode so this is the FF result. Both photos are SOOC Jpegs (highest quality Jpegs) and the second ones are 100% crops of the originals. The vignetting is easy to tell with these blue and red solid backgrounds.

Slightly embarrassed to show these, since I am no birder, and was not ready with the right settings when the opportunity arose today.... But I was out doing my more typical shooting and happened across this Heron. All K-1 crops from DA* 60-250. 500px, so click through for bigger.

Perhaps some of my more typical shots in a bit!

Thank you for checking this. I noticed the swirly bokeh while shooting the lens at 135 without the TC, it's very cool!
Any chance you can post two images, one at 50mm, and one at 135mm, wide open with the TC on?
No Problem, but I don't have a paid hosting account, so PM me and I will drop-box you the RAWs.

Those are very fine images John regardless of the settings you used. Those eyeballs are perfect.

Are you using astro feature ? I was wondering because the trees are blurry... Or is it just the wind ? That's actually a question I had. Since the sensor is moving to compensate for the rotation of the earth, it means everything "attached" to the earth should appear blurry ? So you trading start trails for blurry foregrounds... Or do we have to use astrotracer only for full sky shot without any foreground ?
As someone who's used the astrotracer on the K5IIs and K3 I feel that it wasn't used in this photo, and if it was the motion is from wind. Heck at 10 seconds I don't think the astrotracer would even be needed to eliminate star trails

That's very kind! Although, there was a fair amount of luck involved - even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Another from yesterday's cold and foggy Cape Cod Canal. This is a three exposure HDR done in Nik, toned in On1, tweaked in LR.

1/500 @ 4.5, 5.6, 7.1 and ISO200
