I can sense the excitement We should have got you a calendar so you could count down the days until the 85mm f1.4 takes over I can't wait to see what you get, your results from general lenses are superb so the 85mm in your hands should be EPIC
6 days to go, but who's counting, right?

So epic is expected. No pressure then. 85 will deliver that easily. The quality of files is way above anything I've owned previously. It does wonders even in less than perfect light:

Is this a new horse? You can see how low the light is yet the detail is excellent. I genuinely can't wait for next month

The light was lower than it looks in the shot K1ii and weighty eighty is killer combo in near darkness.

This is a friends horse. There have been plenty of horses to be ridden from friends. She's so good that they cladly give them for free, because she makes them better. She's on look out for a new one, but not in a hurry during the winter. I'm certain when she founds a new one it will be introduced to you in SIC

I’m in again with the mighty little GR. At my count, that would make 3 this month. Should be some kind of record.

Not sure If I will play the game or not. I will be shooting but single lens constraints could make it a long year. But Im leaving a comment to follow the thread.
You going to continue posting your 365s in Flickr? I would like to follow your progress if you wont be posting in the single in.

I will be on Flikr and Instagram with it (@tagg.art ). I like to do a bit of compositing now and again - and that's not entirely true to the rules of the daily/single in challenges. I guess it depends on what I decide to shoot next.. maybe my 50mm macro.

All are welcome to hang stick around for the nonsense

I think I'm changing my mind on the lens selection. I've really enjoyed the wide angle of the 28, and decided to go with the K series 35mm f2.
Still considered a wide angle, and I haven't had a lot of time with this one on the K-1.

are we still on for a w i d e month?

I know I have an SMC A 15mm f3.5 that needs a SIC running....
That could be enough to get me off the bench with the K15/3.5 on its even w i d e r native format

that's tempting - I've been using it a bit and it is difficult to come to grips with it....

but a month with it would definitely make me decide if I liked it enough to keep it....

Ok, after some arm twisting, I've switched my lens again...to go wider.

I'll be using the Tamron 17-35 on the K-1. For fun, I'm leaving it at 17mm. It is a short month after all...

If not for my irresistable love for the GR III, I'd go with the DA 15
