PS:
the Leica pre-Asph Summicron-R 90/2 is a Walter Mandler design, which gives the WM rendering...
the Leica Apo-Summicron-R Asph 90/2 is from new post-WM era, an Apo design...

Hi neal_grillot,
I used RT 5.5 as well, exported in Tiff 16bit and finished work in LR. I have no problem with it.. Sorry, I can't help you...
Perhaps, you should create a special folder where you export your files...:hmm:

I do like everything in K-1 (II) because it is the only DSLR OVF FF IBIS camera in the world and a perfect complement/companion for my Leica-R lenses (mainly but for others brands as well including Pentax of course)... The sony sensor with Pentax software for Raw files is very well-designed and well-operated.. Perfect.

New Pentax Cameras Make Us All Richer!

Obsolete compared to what? Compared to the new criteria of enormous glasses? I must disagree with that analysis of the validity of this assertion. Actually, Pentax lenses are good enough to make excellent photos, their weakness (if real) is not a criteria for a bad shoot, far from it. If you choose new lenses for pixel peeping, ok you are right. But that's not photography, or perhaps I am completely wrong.

What are these two lenses? Perhaps, I could help you finding them...

Sold your gear for what? New Canon EOS R/RP? These cameras can't compete with Pentax K-1 for its quality price ratio!
Sony A7xIII? Their EVF is awful and a retina killer... Leica SL is a gorgeous EVF FF camera, but too expensive and Panasonic S1/S1R have been released...
I have been keeping my Leica-R lenses when Leica abandoned DSLR FF camera. I was so pleased with my lenses and as I din't want to invest in new lenses for financial reasons also, I decided to pair them with a third party brand camera. I chose Canon EOS 5D, 5DMKII, 5DMKIII, 6D for convenience without changing mount. One of my friend tried with Nikon but they were mirror slam issues with Nikon D800/810. With Canon DSLR camera, I was 50% satisfied because of digital noise in shadows even at 100 Iso. While Canon EOS cameras' price were bargain on second hands, I could accept it. When they released EOS 5D MKIV at obscene price, I began to look for a reasonable DSLR camera. The issue was to change the mount of my beloved lenses. I tried the Pentax K-1 with Pentax (/Tamron) 24-70/2.8 and was convinced by the quality of that camera. I took the risk of changing the Leica mount for Leitax thanks to David Lladˇ's valuable tips. I do not regret a second of having done it!
I still follow the efforts made by other brands to make superb cameras such as Panasonic for their new EVF FF cameras. I could go for them but the Pentax K-1 (II) still is the best value for my needs. And if I need another camera, I could get a second-hand Pentax K-1 for less than 1.000 €. My loss for selling it should be less than 500€ if I change my mind later on.
I hope I do not bother you for my long speech, but I had to argue my deeper thoughts...
Best regards.

A counterexample about Pentax K-1 II with SMC Pentax-D FA Macro 50/2.8. This lens is very cheap and gorgeous...

Welcome Erik,
I completely agree with you. That is why I use a Pentax K-1 (II) with my Leica-R Lenses most of the time... Still very glad with this perfect combo.

At 300 euros, it must be.. But the real thing is to keep wines (for some of them) for a long time before drinking them in a temperate cavum... And some cheaper wines but long-keeping wines are better than very expensive ones... I drank a lot of old (more than twenty years) long-keeping wines which were far better than very good expensive ones... :)

Hello Sandy,
the Rhone Valley's wine is not a top class one. Do not forget south west french wines which are very good and very cheap but not very wellknown... At 6 euros the bottle you can get a very good "Maury" red wine for example. take care of "sulfites" added in most of wine bottles...
Best regards.

PS: about K-1 (II), the grip is very cheap (200US$) and lighter than D850's...

Right. Nevertheless, better to compare to A7IIIR, Z7, D800/D810/D850, 5DSR (5DMKIV is out by far).. No, actually, the Pentax K-1 (II) is a fantastic tool for FF DSLR pictures. Of course, it's not good for video, AF has not to be compared to other brands, but image quality is exceptional... and exceptional according to the price. Thank you Pentax!
I am so happy with this camera.
Waiting for next generation (2 or 3 years time?), a new kind of (Hybrid?) HR-EVF camera with global shutter, a zero shutter lag, multi-frame stacking features and so on to make me switch. But for the moment, Z7 but especially Canon EOS R is not worth to spend so much money for this poor quality of image and an EVF less good than the last generation of Leica SL... It's just marketing, no more...
besides, I do not regret my updated K-1 to K-1 II...

Actually, the Pentax K-1 is the worst IBIS OVF FF DSLR camera in the world I must say but the only one, so I keep it! ;)
Best regards.

PS1: I made a mistake, there is another one, the Pentax K-1 MKII... :D
PS2: my lenses (majority Leica-R lenses) are out of fashion, vintage, old design. I use them to shoot but not to look at their characteristics...
PS3: for what I do with my camera, It's more than sufficient.. I am so bad at RAW processing at least...
PS4: I should wait for two generations more before buying EVF FF DSLR Camera.. I trust my Pentax camera..
