The fact that I can use all my old, very good Pentax manual lenses on this FF 36mp camera is really tempting me. I think I will be purchasing this instead of the K-3.

Thats one of the reasons i bought one , the K3 was simply not a big enough up grade , to tempt me
either .

I missed a few shots due to forgetting to hit the accursed green button with the K30 yesterday. Shooting dogs on snow, exposure was wildly erratic. I don't know why we can't at least have Auto-ISO with our manual lenses... that's how I use the same lenses with my NEX6, and I get much more accurate exposures. I'm leaning heavily towards an A7R too, just because they use old manual Pentax lenses better than Pentax DSLRs.

Took the Elmarit 60 out for a quick stroll this arvo. Wow. Amazing bokeh and super sharp.







See if you can spot the critter in this one. I didn't until I looked at the photo on the computer when I got home.

That is a weird photo - I keep seeing faces in the texture, and a butterfly wing in the top right.

Thanks for the shots.

Doesn't look like much rain in the second photo :-)

PS - It's been raining here for the last week or so - yesterday was really heavy.

I like the curved edge of the railings in contrast to the sharp corners of the roof.

One from the Elmarit-R 24/2.8



Vario-Elmar-R 75-200/4.5 @ 3200 ISO



The Tamron 28-75 just showed up too, so plenty of lenses to test at the moment. The Tamron is beautifully compact. About the same as the 17-50 I'd say. I've only got a manual adapter at the moment so I was very nicely surprised at how good the focus ring feels. Nicely damped.
