  1. monochrome
    Was out with the K-01 today shooting flowering trees in good light. I must say the full dSLR controls are different and I have some learning to do. Focus Peaking is a help but it will take some learning as well. Getting the camera to do what I want is a challenge because I don't yet fully understand all the modes and the controls to manage them. It might be easier if I was coming off a K-r though. Best lens so far is the FA35/2 and I did some monopod work with the K200/2.5 - I actually got some good images with it!
  2. monochrome
    Lucky Dog! NIB. The 1.4 alone gets that NIB. You'll love them - I had A50/1.4 until I got the FA50/1.4. Take care with the aperture ring of the 1.7. It has a plastic internal click detent that is spot welded in place. Rough clicking can break the welds. Noting to fret about but it is 30 years old.
