New, very high praise from Digilloyd, using pixel shift for landscapes

Remembering all the comments from the naysayers who tried to convince everybody that pixel shift couldn't be used for landscape photography..

Very Nice ! But what is the grid pattern easily discernable on the next to the last Image (Door/Lizard Image) that looks like a Grid Pattern ? Whatever it is is VERY Distressing ! Is it fiberglass screen or artifact ?

I've read Lloyd is converting his Zeiss to K using Leitax conversions.

Pentax is NOT doooooomedTM!

Very nice indeed... refreshing to see professionals recognising Pentax pixel-shift technology advantage over other brands. Thanks...

Yes the Leitax guy sent him a conversion kit to test, it will be good to see the results.

Apparently though, according to many forum members here, Lloyd does not know what he is talking about and can't be trusted due to his "fee for access" website review system, where he shows bias towards popular brands etc etc etc, usual guff.

I think he has done a very fair, positive and accurate assessment of the K1 system, also showing the inherent weaknesses of the older FA lenses and even the new DFA70-200 (though his copy could have been faulty).

Yes, although the Zeiss lens contributes more than pixel shift, IMO. I did pixel shift tests with the 24-70, and the shots still look like shots from Tamron glass. That's why I was crying mother why Ricoh don't have yet wide DFA primes for K1.

That "Bristlecones Backlit at Sunset" image is just stunning... what a demonstration of the K-1...

I've been in contact with David at Leitax regarding Zeiss conversion, he's working on it.

I got a D-FA 70-200 on order along with the 15-30, hope they're good coz they cost a fortune.

Also looking forward to Tony and Chelsea's review of the K-1.

The 15-30 is good but offers a very generic look to the images, unlike say a Zeiss 21 or Leica 21/24 etc.

You can always give it a look in post.

He didn't review the 70-200 , there was a remark in there about it but there is no evidence to suggest that it's substandard barring a throw away remark.
It's a pity as I'd love to see his actual take on the lens with images, details etc...

I like that.

You know, the RAW files out of the K-1 kind of remind me of S-Log video out of the A7s. Open them up and you're faced with pure blandness . . . until you start post-processing

Viewed on a small screen, interference patterns are present in that photo, for much the same reason Moiré fringing appears on digital sensor images. If you zoom in on that image, though, they disappear, which suggests the K-1 is handling the fine pattern in the screen mesh without a problem.
