I am friends with the owner of a local coffee shop in Waterhead, Ambleside. I got my Pentax back from Tokyo yesterday morning (at 7.30 am!) and put it through its paces. My excellent 45 - 85 lens needs investigation as it is wobbling a little bit and showing signs of not being as sharp as before it got dropped while on the camera. The repair bill was originally 1685 but came down to 800 as I insisted they didn't change anything for cosmetic reasons -they were charging 800+ for the front and top cover which is scratched from being on a shoulder harness. this doesn't bother me at all as my cameras won't be sold and apart from my 7D all my cameras are well used and look so.

Pentax 645D FA 120 macro f/4 at f/6.7 and 1/200 ISO 320




Another shop sat closer in ( I have an annoying tendency to flash my cameras up for candids - not easy with the size of the 645D with a 120mm macro lens on it!

Cheers Eddie. I got some pretty strange results with large grain on this roll. So kind of a happy accident

The top image is actually a three shot pano (taken horizontally, then cropped) using the 25mm D FA. I reported earlier that the CA's are really bad with this lens...well they weren't apparent at all in this image with the lens correction turned on...it just takes longer for the image to process before you can preview it.

Lovely images Ryan! I especially like the one of the gorge. Regarding turning on lens corrrection and the possibility of it helping reduce CA, have you tried two shots of the same subject, one with lens correction "on" and one with it "off", to determine if lens correction does indeed help? Thanks!
