Just curious if you can post a landscape taken with your 28-105 that you deemed wanting for sharpness?

Have you tried out PixelShift to compare results?

What all ya'll think about my latest PentaxTips video??
I was able to rent the camera off a local and was able to make these videos :)
Therefore, this video was actually a bit harder for me to make, as I had to learn the camera and capture all the video in the relatively short I had rented the camera.
I still really like the result and I think this video will be a useful tool for new photographers and experienced alike.

Sharp? Sure. Yes.
Might say I feel it's a touch under exposed.

Vintage Lenses on the K-1 Mark II

Hello everyone!

Here is the second in the series of 3 PentaxTips videos from the rented K-1 Mark II!
The previous video was on iOS wifi connection, this one is on vintage lenses, and the last will be a complete overview tutorial video.

All vintage lenses can be used on any modern Pentax digital camera.
This includes all K, M, and M42 screwmount lenses.
Better yet, the K-1 series, with their full-frame sensor, can render the entire image circle of these vintage lenses!

Take a look here how to configure your K-1 Mark II to use vintage lenses.

I managed to rent a K-1 Mark II !

I've begun making an overview video, but there will be two 'sidecar' videos.
1) iOS connection and 2) how to use vintage lenses, then 3) the entire overview video!

Please take a look at the first of the series below:

... well setting it to 1:1 will make square images...
I think you should have it set to FF to compare your image sizes.
If it was auto cropping your images in auto mode, you must have had an APS-C lens on the camera..

The old 100 f/4 doesn't have electrical contacts, correct? I think that might be the problem?
I really don't know.
Cool suggestion using the negative effect to scan your negatives - will have to try that!

Might also suggest that the K-S2, K-70, KP, and K-1 II have built-in WiFi (no bluetooth though).
However, older cameras may be able to use a FluCard for image transfer (and in certain cameras a FluCard can be used for tethering and instant image review:

I don't know about you, but my mind doesn't turn off once I leave the office.
Indeed, my job lives rent-free in my head and I solve lots of problems and think up new projects on my own time frequently.
Especially because I like my work.

I can understand easily how an optical engineer who likes their job continues to think about solving problems outside of work.

I usually don't dig into articles past the first page..
I saw the post on PR and looked at the roadmap :)
Didn't even know it was already talked about! :P
I have the smc DFA 100 WR that I'm really happy with.
I can see nice application using the new lens in astro with less aberrations :) but for macro work I'm usually stopped right down and it's not bad for aberrations all the way down there..
You'd think a new optical design with fancy new expensive [heavy] glass would warrant a new autofocus motor (?)

...my smc DFA 100mm f/2.8 WR was the first lens I bought brand new (besides a camera and kit lens)

Asahiflex IIA: Overview Training
Posted By FozzFoster

The Asahiflex camera series are a M37 screwmount vintage great-grandfather to the Pentax brand we know today.

Manufactured by the Asahi Optical Co. in the 1950s, that same company would go on to produce the M42 mount 'Asahi Pentax' camera that would bare the name of the brand for all cameras thereafter.

These sort of overview videos helped encourage me to get into photography, especially film photography where every shot counts!

These cameras are not very common and can be a bit intimidating to use the very manual photographic acquisition processes. Therefore, I'm pleased to present our PentaxTips Asahiflex IIA overview training video!

I hope you enjoy!

50mm on aps-c at minimum focus distance will make for a nice tight head shot.
