I added some additional/better photos of the equipment.

Ignore the photo dates. Used my Wifes camera and apparently the date is wrong.

Hello all,

I got the samyang 85mm 1.4 lens for Christmas and I noticed when mounting it. If the lens is set to A I can't get the lens to mount properly. I have to close the aperature some then it will lock in. Then I can change the lens to A and it works fine.

Thanks.

How long do you think it will take for someone to make a z-mount to k-mount like the Sony Mirrorless. I'm pretty interested in the Nikon but not in jumping away from Pentax. Would be great to use my Pentax glass on the Nikon Mirrorless.

I was able to pick up a K-3ii with a couple lenses on ebay for a real good deal. I upgraded from the K-S2. I really miss the LCD being able to move around, a LOT lol. But in every other aspect I love the K-3ii. The shutter noise is shockingly quiet compared to my K-S2. I plan on upgrading or adding the K-1 eventually and I will get my tilting screen back then. Or the new K-3 if that ever happens.

Hello All,

I am traveling to Seattle this weekend and am looking for any suggestions on cool spots to photograph. I have been there a couple times so I have a few of the main spots done already. (Bubblegum Wall, Pikes fish market, Troll, antique area, Pier, Grey Whale watching)

We have hiked a few spots around the area but I am looking for a good hiking spot as well for the trip. I have been to Mt. Rainier but the snow closed the road to Reflection Lake. Considering doing that (I believe you can just park nearby and walk up rather than hike. Which would allow for another hike)

Best Street Photography/walk around lens. Emphasis on Bokeh capability

Yeah it is a lot easier to figure out with a FF K-1. Hoping to upgrade eventually though. I think the 35 mm is good most of the time and fits the low profile bill, but its a bit narrow on the crop sensor. I do have my Pentax ME that I have been messing around with. Which is even more low profile.

Yeah I was nervous about getting a used 24mm Samyang. But IQ so far seems great. Though for the type of shots I am using it for currently its probably hard to spot any issues on the corners. We will see when I shoot some astro photography.

Yeah I guess I considered it street photography in the sense that I am walking around downtown streets taking photos when something catches my eye. Would it be more walkaround photography? :D I guess it could be considered night photography. Sometimes I catch people in the photos but they are rarely the subject in the photo. More like blurred silhouettes to give it some character.

I do really like the Samyang 24mm IQ. Its just large. I would love to have the 31 limited. Eventually I probably will unless Pentax picks up the pace with its new lenses. Or possibly a new crop sensor camera to go along with them.

Its kind of crazy that the Pentax lens that fills that slot was made so long ago.

Yeah the Sigma 18-35 would be great I would deal with the weight with that range/aperture. That price though haha.

I do use the 35mm f/2.4 a bit. But sometimes I am stuck trying to backup when I can't. I like the 24mm a lot. The Samyang is just a large lens to walk around with. Sometimes I just want to throw on a wrist strap and leave the shoulder strap at home. But carrying the 2 lbs Samyang can get tiring after a hour or so.

haha well unfortunately there aren't a lot of newer options for the Pentax K mount like we see on other brands to fill this void. But I like the weather sealing and ergonomics of the Pentax bodies way too much to switch brands. Plus I like being the underdog ;)

I tried out a friends Sony A7Rii. I felt like it was going to drop it at any moment or just break from setting it down. I have had a lot of people hold my camera to be wow'd by the ergonomics compared to their cameras. Yet its still a hard sell to people being an brand with little recognition in the overall camera community. But I digress haha

It seems like the older sigma's are a good option as well. I hadn't seem those come up in my searches. I would say the 31mm limited is probably the king in this realm but its not a budget option. If I was going to spend that much I would rather get a K-1 and just use my 50mm as a walk around and be done with it haha.

I know there are two versions of the 30mm Sigma and the HSM has a lot of reports of color fringing. Does anyone have experience with the older variation and what the fringing is with that one? I really want to like the 30mm Sigma but I really don't want to have to edit that fringing out. Although its possible I won't see it as much with the type of shots I want it for. It seems like the fringing is particularly bad in day light and more noticeable with landscape shots.

That Kiron 28 f2.0 seems like a quality walk around lens as well. I used to have an old pentax 28mm f/2.8. But that was when I was just starting out and I didn't know how to use it well so I sold it.

Hey All,

What do you use as your walk around lens for street photography. The idea is you leave the bag at home and make do with only one lens while out walking around taking photos.

The reason I posted the emphasis on bokeh was to steer the conversation in that direction. I know any zoom lens would be great like the 18-135, but I am more interested in near focus bokeh background shots. Which requires a large aperture. After searching around I really don't see a good lens to suit that need aside from the 31mm f/1.8 but that's above my budget and probably most people sitting at $1k new.

With the crop sensor K-3ii the 35mm prime is good but a bit narrow with the conversion pushing it above 50mm equivalent on FF. Which has me looking around 31mm and below. I was interested in the 30mm sigma's but everything I read says the purple fringing is just unbearable to work with. The pentax 21mm would be nice but that f/3.2 would make bokeh shots difficult.

So currently I am using the 35mm f/2.4 or my 24mm f/1.4 samyang. The samyang is rather large to be used as my walk around but it does give me some wonderful photos. I dont mind the manual focus but I do enjoy the on camera aperture settings. Most of the shots I am looking for require manual focus anyway.

So what is everyone's experience with street photography? What lens do you gravitate toward. I am pretty satisfied with the Samyang 24mm but its a bit large for walking around in crowds. In that sense I love the 35mm f/2.4 but its a bit narrow at times. Does anyone use the 30mm Sigma lenses and have good experiences with them?

I attached a few photos of mine to show the type of photography I am referring to (all taken with the 24mm). But I am interested in anyone's experiences with street photography.

Does anyone have any experience using the moneymaker? I am looking at picking up their new single camera strap. Or a new strap in general, but there are very few options that look appealing and are functional/comfortable.

I love seeing legit reviews of Pentax. They always come out with nothing but great things to say. Even unbias comparisons are rare but wonderful as well because Pentax almost always wins. The CameraVille youtube channel has some good videos displaying pentax capability.
