Perhaps one of my last shots with the Pentax DA40, as I will probably be selling it along with the rest of my Pentax gear. I've bought a used D700 :)
Still, I think I will miss shooting Pentax some times, they really do make great cameras.

I wholeheartedly agree! I don't dare to do any more than minor cropping with the D700 when I know I might print it. For web work (where most of my paid assignments end up) it's less critical. I try to stick to the 'crop in camera' rule ;)

Speaking of the viewfinder, that is the only thing so far on the D700 that bugs me. The K-5's 100% coverage is something that spoiled me a lot, haha.

I also recently switched to Nikon full frame, by means of a used D700. Ergonomically, it's a toss up for me between that and my K-5, but performance wise it's a different story. The Nikon is a MACHINE, with awesome focusing speed and accuracy. Their selection of 1.8 primes is now expanding rapidly and there are some gems to be found. In general the selection and availability of parts, accessories and lenses is much better, which I like.

I will keep my K-5 with a few primes, as well as all the analog Pentax gear (Nikon film gear is expensive!) for when I want something lightweight, small and unobtrusive. The combo of K-5 plus DA 40 is unsurpassed in that department. Heck, I might even still buy the 77.

As far as the files go, I'm happy with either. The Nikon does have the edge in having that full frame look of course. By the way, I did underestimate how different the RAW output was going to be. I'm still in the process of adjusting my workflow to the Nikon.

Don't know if I posted this on the forums already, anyways here we go. A bookshop in a former church, beautiful location with great light. Nice selection of books too :)
I have more pics from the same spot, just need to upload them to Flickr sometime, if anyone is interested :)

And one converted to b/w, which Ektar handles very well in my opinion.

Thanks a bunch! I really like these as well :)
They're so colorful and sharp, they almost look like digital shots.

I have more photos coming up from the same roll, different subjects though.

All three shots were made with an ME Super + K55 1.8

You've developed a style of your own and you sound like you've given your gear and processing choices quite some thought. Very inspiring!
I'd be delighted to see more of your work, thanks for sharing :)

It's been a while since I've touched my camera. I started my first full-time job last month, wonder if that got anything to do with it? ;)

So do I, b&w shots can usually handle an extra bump of contrast. If you ask me, you're right on the mark in this shot :)

I like the three layers of texture (water, rocks and clouds) a lot here.

It was a beautiful foggy evening in Nijmegen, so I had to go out and shoot. Mostly used the DA 40, it rarely came off my camera every since I got it last April.

Took a closer look at the negatives and yes, it does show up all the way through to the sprocket holes. But on the entire roll, there's only 5 streaks and their locations are not related to longer intervals between those frames.

Oh well, I haven't replaced the seals yet so that is probably the culprit.

Shot in Brussels last summer with my Yashica Electro 35 GS. Some more shots from the same roll show this blue band through the left side, but not all. Could that still be a light leak?

Really like the third one! And you've got some incredible detail and sharpness in those shots, wow! Is that just the film + dev combo, or is there some post-processing in the mix as well?
