Shutter shock with small primes

So I took my K-1, my FA31 and my FA77 and sat down shooting from 1/50 through 1/250 and I really can't se any shutter shock. Taking several series there are a few sample variations where some shots are less detailed than the rest but not at any specific shutter speed. I used f/4 and shot at close range.

Is there a focus distance part in the equation?

Here I have two of many portraits I have taken with the FA31 and FA77 at these shutter speeds...

My guess was also the rapid movement of the magnetic pole.

Following this thread with interest.

I don´t know. We have very strong customer protection in Sweden. Some things does not need to be written down if there is a general consensus to what is expected.

You always have your "drulleförsäkring" as a last resort but I really hope they still do the right thing.

I guess the warranty is treated different depending on where you live. In the Nordic countries I think they are more prone to fix a camera with water damage, honoring the commersials that clearly states that Pentax gear is "water proof".

I also always keep it hanging out in rain, sleek, snow and what not. Never had any grave problems due to moisture. It may be a måndagsexemplar. Also, do you have the latest firmware?

Image Sync for Android not working after last update

It connected and worked. I lost contact, tried to connect but it did not connect again. Removed the app from the list of recent apps. Tried again after restarting the camera and it connected.

What I do is first to connect with the phone wifi. Not via the app. Then starting the app. Sometimes it does not work and the app wants me to enter network and password. I do so but then it never works... So if it happens, I enter any password, just one letter or so, let it sit for a few second before I press the cross in the upper right corner and it connects.

To access the custom settings you first press the small button next to the four way controller, up to the right, then press the custom funktion you want to change.

The OK button will center your focus point when pressed in "Fokus point selection mode"

In live view the mirror is already up so it will be grayed out. In normal shooting 2s timer opens the mirror first then 2s and the shot. MUP should work in all other scenarios but you will need to use a remote if you want the camera to be still.

Or use the remote app on the phone.

I would guess when closer to the sensor and infinity is possible that it will no longer cover the whole sensor?

If using Live View and an adapter that lets you move the lens inside the mirror chamber you will be able to get infinity focus.

If you wan´t the mirror in up position, just turn on LV. There will be no mirror slap but maybe some shutter slap since it closes the shutter after 12s and then opens and closes to take the shot.
With 2s timer in LV it closes the shutter directly and the open/close to take the shot.

The results in DCU was more or less the same as in ACR. When setting the sharpness I twirl so that it says F and push it to more or less 75%

And I saved it on 4 stars jpg

Normally I use DCU to sharpen, get the PS-developement and then export to TIFF 16bit and do the rest in ADOBE Camera RAW

k1 with DA 1.4x teleconverter?

And I suppose you did a side by side compare with and without the TC? Do that and you will find that @450mm you are topping out on resolution. I have had 3 150-450 and tested this on two of them, both showed the same.

But, if you put it together with the DFA*70-200 you will find extra detail when using the DA TC.

If you ask me the IQ suffers to much so you won't gain anything by using it @450mm.

I would argue that PS compensates for lens imperfections and problems with polution in the air between the lens and subject. I have developed both files in Adobe Camera RAW 10.5 and in the latest Pentax software, DCU and I find the detail to be much clearer in the PS file, also less noise is visible. How come you do not see that I wonder. The following is from Camera RAW and edited exactly the same.

Looking at the Polish remover there is a significant improvement in detail. Also in the text on the clock. I am looking on the embedded jpg so if you are looking on a processed RAW you will need to up the Fine Sharpness of the second file to gain the extra detail.
