I agree. But the higher dynamic range of the newer panels is quite noticable. Escpecially if you play HDR content.

That bird is flying towards you. A Pentax can not possibly focus under these conditions. Conclusion: you must be cheating!!!!

Because Pixel shift uses electronic shutter, and normal mode does not.

Pentax 28-105mm f/3.5-5.6: HD D-FA any reviews yet?
Posted By timcatn

I just bought the 28-105 as my all-round lens for the K1. I think it is very good. Even sharpness across the frame. Only drawback is the smalle max aperture compared to the 24-70. It so good (and expensive) that i would hesitate to Call it a "kit lens". The measurements done by E-photozine says it all imo.

However if you plan to stay With APS-C then 28mm might not be wide enough as an all-rounder.

DFA 24-70 or DFA 15-30 for the K-1?

Tamron manufactures the Pentax Version, but With Pentax glass. I don't see this as starting from scratch at all. Pentax already has a high quality Production line for glass so that they grind lens elements and ship them to Tamron seems plausible.

He didn't say different shape, but higher quality glass. The base formula should be the same.

Not sure this is the right Place but ill ask anyway.

I was in the shop buying the 28-105 for my K-1 today. I find the 15-30 very tempting for landscape use. The guy in the shop told me that one of the reasons the the Pentax is so much more expensive than the Tamron Version is that it is not really the same lens. The Pentax is supposed to be manufactured by Tamron With their formula, but With Pentax lens elements and coatings. This could explain why the Pentax gets good reviews for even sharpness across the frame, and the Tamron is criticised for the opposite.

Anyone know anything more about this?

Not me.

Compared to the K5 (original) the AF speed is faster and more snappy on K1 with my DA*300

Did my first atempt at BiF shots today. Using the DA*300.

The difference from the K-5 (classic) is impressive. I used AF.C With Auto 9 setting. It worked really well in my opinion. What i found is that, like With the K-5, SR needs to be turned off.

I have already bought a K-1. Keeping the K-5 as backup or for when i want to travel light.


I'm really surprised that the larger viewfinder made it so much easier to get the composition right.

The arguement was that only 5% actually NEED FF or whatever high-end equipment. I think that is quite correct. You are obviously among those 5%.

I'll freely admit that I'm part of the 95% of fools Norm is referring to. However, I am also aware that I am part of that 95%. For me the equipment, or rather gadgets i should say, is part of the fun. This does not mean that i actually believe an expensive lens or whatever makes me a better photographer. Photographing, RAW development and cool equipment is all part of the hobby.


To answer your question I think very few (ignoring the lack of range)

Slow Aperture on D-FA 100mm
Posted By timcatn

Views: 608
Thanks for the tips everyone.


I ended up going for it. I removed the lens mount. I could not see any errors so i slightly moved the starting position of the lever. Effectivly tightening the spring a small amount. The drawback of this is of course that i might have skewed the f-stops slightly (depening if it was correct to begin with). Will test when i get home from work. The operation was fairly simple and took around 30min.

Slow Aperture on D-FA 100mm
Posted By timcatn

Hello folks.


I discovered today that the aperture lever on my D-FA 100mm Macro is quite slow. Using a flashlight i can not see any oil or other foreing substances on the Aperture blades themselves. I believe it is mechanical friction in the lever mechanism. It is not sticky, just slow.


I have removed the mount of a MF lens before (Auto Chinon 135mm F2.8) with no trouble putting it back together, but I'm a bit hesistant to do this on an AF lens. Do anyone have experience in opening up an AF lens with WR?


My intention is to very carefully lubricate the moving parts in the lever mechanism.




Best regards Tim
