Pixel shift with the A 35-105 f/3.5 Macro, 1/15 @ f/11, +1 stop exposure, +50% on shadows, resized. Okay for first time try.



Actual size.

OK. Standard thinking seems to be that any long lens shooter is going to stick with the K-3's APS-C sensor to squeeze every last drop of rez out. To verify that for myself, I stuck the HD1.4 TC on the K-1 and then the DA*300 on the TC. This gave me 642mm equivalent in K-1 crop mode. Then I shot various things around the yard, mostly birds. I've decided to ignore conventional wisdom since the K-1 images have a quality that is unattainable by the K-3. I am not talking about resolution. The K-1 images have a luminous quality that the K-3 doesn't, likely due to the new sensor's superior dynamic range. The almost noiseless backgrounds are beautiful. And I find that you only have to make minor tweaks in post and you are there already. I shot many of these at one stop under to preserve highlights and pulling it all back up led to zero noise increase. The K-1 still likely has some surprises left but it has already taught me that resolution is not everything.

Well, I am a k-3 II (bird) shooter, 150-450 + 1.4xTC, and the prospect of using this set-up on the K-1 appeals to me.
I suspect that the lower noise and the dynamic range of the K-1, is going to out-weigh any loss of resolution.
I am really looking forward to seeing a few rigorous comparative tests...just to convince myself that I am being objective

Cheers,
Terry

Anyone has K1 together with Da70 ltd? What are the results wide open? Sad the k-1 lens lab is still closed for entries - i`d love to have those all pentax lens examples handy before deciding where to invest my little savings, and if its worth it.

I've done a few tests with the DA 70 limited. wide open at F2.4 and at F16. Hope this works out right as it's the first time I've uploaded photos to the forum.

Re DA 70

I can see the vignette from here, but I think that would be awesome for portraits.

The vignetting with a 70mm wide open looks trivial, easily correct in PP, might be cropped away from many images, and no more that B&W darkroom masters would routinely add to an image to help concentrate attention on the center of interest.

A few quick snaps right out of the box. Hand held and no processing. Just wanted to look at ISO with the K1.

K-1 and D-FA 100/2.8 Macro WR at f/6.3, pixel shift . . .



Found some mortgage parchments from the early 1800's for an old paper mill in Devon.

What a beautiful hand (and a very nice photo)!

My K1 arrived yesterday evening......Here come the squirrels!

What an amazing camera this is! The big old slow Bigma focuses lightning fast and accurate, I can get speed using high ISO and the crop setting gets me in close where I am used to being!

1/160 handheld f8 ISO 6400 @ 500mm in crop mode. The SR is amazing too!


1/160 handheld f8 ISO 6400 @ 450mm in crop mode.--- Put a smile on her face to pose for the K1!


I am not up to the skill and standards of most of you here, but for an old squirrel shooter, this camera is simply amazing! We always hear with every new model that the AF is "better". Well, none have been like this, it is truly in a class of its own! Fast and accurate even on the big 'ol slow Bigma...I couldn't believe it! Amazing!

And the high ISO is wonderful! Even at 12,800 it is very decent! Lets you get some needed speed without losing usability.


I am going to love this camera....even more when I learn how to use it!

Regards!

Thanks Franc! Nothing more than a few test shots, but I am so impressed! This is like no Pentax I have ever owned for certain. It looks like they got EVERYTHING right!

Pixel shifted squirrel.......Well, it may be a while. Some squirrel, I can only guess which one, spread a rumor that pixel shifting causes genetic damage in squirrels. Until I set up a Trust Fund with 100# of roasted peanuts as security, none will pose for pixel shifting. I'm working on it!

One at ISO 5000 1/160 f8 @ 500mm handheld....in the crop mode.


I love the crop mode......the box lights up in red when you achieve focus...which is instant! What a camera!

Best Regards!

EDIT: My first K1 dove! Just shot it. Wouldn't even have tried with my K5IIs, the light was low and it would have taken forever for the Bigma to focus...and the noise at ISO 2500 would have been too great.

For the K1 focus was instant....and I mean instant!

1/80 handheld...SR is fantastic! f6.3 wide open....ISO 2500 @ 500mm My first K1 dove!...thousands more to come!
