The second scene in B&W, your #4, is my favourite. I think the composition is far more effective in the strong B&W rendering you have given it. It's just nice in colour but the contrast between foreground, middle, and background really separate in beautiful contrast with a full range of near black to bright white. Well done itshimitis. Please show us more B&W.

645D lenses on K-1 and 645D

Getting better photos on K-1 than on 645D with 645 lenses! ??

I am using 645-A lenses and a cheap imported adapter on my K-1, mainly the Pentax-A 645 120mm f 4.0 macro. Then I am using the Pentax-FA 645 120mm macro on the Pentax 645D. Focussing is the only variable that I am able to identify as different. I always use manual focus on macro shots, so do not actually use the AF capabilities of the 120mm/FA, and the 120mm/A has a better focussing ring than the FA. However, color and rendering even looks better on the K-1. I am thinking that the Pentax-A 120mm f 4.0 is one of the best lenses I have ever encountered in any format.

Comments and thoughts including your own experience will be greatly appreciated.

I don't have either but the sensor in the K1 is significantly more modern in design than that of the 645D.

This camera doesn't have a bulb mode. Only a T-Mode. And I assumed how it worked. Come to find out during the show it doesn't close with a second press. In a panic I found the if you advance the film it closes. But I guess you need to cover the lens first as seen in the horizontal streaks. Go figure.

Great story, great picture. TMY rules.

Hey Matt,

What program do you use to process your shots? Whenever I see your photos it reminds me just how capable the 645D is and that I probably don't need a 645Z. I'd be interested in hearing if you've ever considered 'upgrading' to a 645Z?

For those that don't live in California, this is what a lot of coastal California looks like in the foothills, inland from the Pacific Ocean.
