it'd be nice if it had the same screen as the K1 (with touch ofc). as a result, still trying to get the right feel to shoot off the ground or from above

GRIII with massive hands

So i just got a gr III street edition to complement my full rig as a daily carry. Problem is: it's really small and i'm not.

At 6'8", i can completely hide this thing in my mitts with room to spare.

My K1 is a great size for comfortable shooting, but have trouble keeping a secure grip without sloppily touching the screen or lens.

Any other large shooters solve this issue? Recommendations on a grip that makes it a bit easier to wield without defeating the portability completely?

Can't figure $1k for the new 50, but have a want for a normal lens to compliment my 77 ltd. I'm set with the 15-30, 24-70, and 70-200 DFAs. Also have the sigma art 35. Is $375 a good price for the 43ltd in "exc+" condition? Any tips for when I first mount this on my k1?

i got it, as images are being imported, the stars are clearly visible. upon some action by the program, the stars are wiped, although still faintly visible if you use the spot correction & visualize spots. anybody aware of any heavy processing by default?

Anybody have any issues with lightroom "eating" stars from astrotracer pics? My son took attached, had a nice cadence with the stars, but then was eliminated after standard preview (no additional corrections) auto load in lightroom. Any fixes for faint stars?

Glad it's from any timeframe.

I used to ditch school and wander the field museum in Chicago fairly often when I was younger. Had a chance to revisit a couple years ago.

This is one of the several totem poles in the museum. I'm a fan of Haida art and have always enjoyed their symbolism.

had to get pretty low to block out afternoon sun from a tulip bed. dynamic range allowed shadows to retain so much info. K1 with adapted C/Y Zeiss 50/1.7.
