I don’t own it myself but the 24mm F1.4 Samyang/Rokinon/Bower is highly regarded among astrophotographers.

I owned the Sigma 35mm and sold it because it was too clinical for my taste and lacked character. I replaced it with the 31mm Ltd. and couldn’t be happier. So for your requirements it seems like the Sigma would be the perfect fit.

I also have the 50mm 1.7 and use it on my K1 with joy. It’s a great performer on the K1 and so are the other lenses from this series. Here’s a little video from one of the very few youtubers that uses Pentax gear about the F series.

The high ISO noise comparison between K-1 II and K-3 III is quite impressive. Looking forward to seeing real life results. Especially how this will affect the lower ISO performance

No worries that is normal. It’s the shake reduction mechanism at work that is shifting the sensor to compensate for the movement of your hands. Have fun with your new camera!

I second that. I bought a Sony RX100 MK I for my wife for a month long trip to Australia. She doesnít know too much about photography so I set it to full auto and RAW put in a big memory card and just let her shoot away. I was not only impressed but on some pictures stunned by the image quality. Itís a great little camera.

This is my favorite shot of 2020 if not my favorite ever. And I think it fits this strange past year quite well.

Mitakon 20mm F2 4.5x Super Macro Lens Reviews - Miscellaneous Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

There are three reviews on this. I stumbled across this a few days ago while searching for a prime in the 20mm range. Seems to be a very special lens with a very limited use case.

Thank you all for your warm welcomes for her. I’m actually a long time member here but thought this was the most fitting topic to post this. I will encourage her to get her own account as soon as she speaks English :D



I know, I know. But she has the advantage of not having to buy her own lenses. I’m waiting for the day she asks if she can borrow my limiteds ;)

Mine was the K200D which I loved but unfortunately I had to sell it and it would have been too heavy for her anyways.


Yes the K-x is a great little camera. I never had one in my hands before. I really like the pictures that come out of it.


Good point, I will definitely do that.


That's why I bought her a Pentax. Building up brand loyalty early! ;)

The marketing of Ricoh has gotten better lately but still leaves a bit to be desired. So I decided to take things into my own hands to grow the user base.

Today I received a K-x together with the DA 35/2.4 and DA 50/1.8 plus SD card and a set of Eneloops for an absolute steal of a price.
So welcome my seven year old daughter to the brand. She loves her new camera. And I love seeing her use it.
