Is the absence of a modern FF TC an admission that quality suffers?

I've been using the same combo, K-3 + DA*60-250 and HD DA 1.4x converter, lately quite a lot, and been happily surprised to see the relatively good image quality. I did not expect (and not quite get) exactly the same quality as w/o the converter, but it's close enough for my needs and making the extra reach in focal length well worthy. Definitely better than just cropping. It only needs 1/3 stop (5,6 > 6,3 with the 1.4x) to achieve very sharp images, and even wide open it's quite okay.

Will be happy to use a FF-capable converter with DFA 150 - 450 + K-1 sometimes in the future... :)

... but isn't APS-C still better form factor for long lenses, giving more reach? And K-3(Mk3) already giving enough pixels for most purposes?

Really - and it's a matter of taste if there's too much color (saturation). Hard to believe it looks like that IRL.

I agree with Angky, and the droplet is doing its "job" very fine.

I seldom like oversaturated photos, but in this case it seems to work quite fine. What I like best, is the idea of the photo, anyway.

"If you notice it [the post processing effects, when looking at a photo], it's too much." - I think this is a very good approach as a rule of thumb.

A nice scenery. Besides the bridge, the sky (clouds) is wonderfully taken as a significant element of the photo.

Combination of snow and the colors of terrain / trees is wonderful. Gotta remember this when the first snow falls (sometimes October - November, probably). Pity I live so faaaaar away from Yellowstone, but forests we have.

Gorgeaus place and photo! B&W is fine, though it would be nice to see a color version for comparison.
