Another Canon Convert

Hello.

Just picked up my new K1 and 28-105 today after months of upgrade research. Sold my 6D, Zeiss 50, canon kit zoom and sigma tele zoom. I kept my Zeiss ZE 100 Milvus, 21 classic. I plan to also keep my x100t and DP3M for the odd occasion (unless the new kit can convince me to part with them).

What are some tricks you all have found with the K1 to make a transition from canon-primary shooting a little easier?

Cheers,

~ab

Hi from Australia bigoak. Welcome to the Pentax forums. I cannot help with your question as I have never owned Canon, or the K-1 !! Good to have you aboard.

i'm already stoked about the iso invariance. got the "kit" 28-105. my goal is to upgrade to the 24-70, 100macro, and the irix 15. if i get irked by the 100 mm limit, maybe someday something longer.

Loving this camera! with the kit lens in Salo' Italy on scenic lake garda.

Does the sensor (with PS) outresolve the 28-105? I feel like the limitation so far is the lens. Is the 24-70 worth the upgrade?

You will see the power of the K1 resolution with a nice Limited prime

Welcome, there's many Canon users who have Pentax users trapped inside them fighting to get out.

Welcome on board my friend! Enjoy the K-1 and your new Pentax system! You'll see it's great in many ways!

I have the DFA 24-70/2.8 and it's a beautiful lens that pairs wonderfully with the K-1! You can read the detailed reviews in PF:
