First Trip with the K-1 - Nice Results (link)!

I've been on vacation for a couple of weeks with my K-1 and the 28-105mm lens. I am carrying two primes I haven't used as I find the travel zoom is doing great, exceeding my expectations.

I'm loving the K-1! Solid, easy to handle, lots of control. Overall a pleasure to take everywhere. Even the top dial has been useful as I am experimenting with HDR modes and toggling WiFi to quickly post some shots from my tablet.

The results hopefully speak for themselves: Select shots are on my Instagram feed for now, these are not final images. Still would welcome everyone's reactions, and happy to discuss further.

Very nice shots, Ari. The K-1 and 28-105 look to be a excellent combo.

Traveled up Route 11 all the way to Fort Kent, then down through Saint Agatha on 161, then 162 to Route 1. Went through Caribou, Presque Isle and Houlton. Awesome road trip, can't wait to go back!

Nice shots.. I actually purchased my K 1 with the 28-105 while on a trip. I stopped at a camera store in Billings, MT and picked one up and was sold on the spot. The next day the camera got a pretty good workout in Yellowstone. Awesome camera and the 28-105 lens is no slouch either. No regrets about purchasing one. FWIW, I live in western NY near Rochester.
