DFA*50/1.4 first review

I only have 2 50, both Marco (FA and F)
Sometimes I do feel I want something with larger aperture and silent AF, DFA24-70 serve me well though.

I don't think they sell the one in K-1 like they did with APS-C, I heard there is third party, but the website doesn't seem to work.

I see, thank you.
My mind must have underestimated the cost of camera repairing.

Sony has phototech for NYC, not sure do they repair Sony camera from other place.
My friend went there with her A7RII for the fried chip after one week on trip. (One more reason to hold my horse on Sony)
Took about 7 days if I remember correctly to get her camera back.

I fully understand.
Just out of curious, does other place for "Majority brand" cost hundreds for small fix too? This is my first time to send camera to repair.
Luckily the marks are close to the edge and corner, guess I need to treat it like the sensor. So I can wait until pass fall to send it in.

I only wish the service in US is cheaper, Precision Camera charges 3 hundreds USD, even for smallest fix(let me know if I am wrong)
Somehow...I left a mark with my nail on the focus screen on top of the mirror of my K-1, totally my fault, I never expect it is so fragile...

So many paparazzi:lol:
Glad I learned a new word, thank you.
In my language we called them "Dog Team" "狗仔隊", since they follow you and can sniff every one of your thing.

Camera Brand Culture Shock (Pentax to Sony).

I also have a Sony headphone, the wireless one for Playstation. It becomes the best torture tool whenever I wear my glass and put it on, it is like the water-dripping torment.
Surprisingly those Playstation are still running(the older version), though I had a Playstation 2 that broke so many time that we have to give up on fixing it.

I would love an EVF when I using my MTO-1000 with more than one teleconverter, the OVF gets kind of dark even in the morning, well, it is f/42 after 2 2X.
I tried LV, but the sunlight kind of make it difficult to see, and it is kind of slow in K-5IIs. (Hope the K-1 is better, it is still miles away from my home.)

I also got gear envy when at the beginning, I was like saving up for the best FF, spent hours, days, weeks to dig up all the info I can to pinpoint which brand is the best.
I spent more time looking into gears than taking photos. The "want" got me really good, luckily I cooled my head and woke up.
My friend wasn't so lucky, spent more than 10K on the first buy, (A7R2, 12-24, 24-70, 70-200+a lot more.), and I rarely see her taking any photo after the first few weeks.
Also her A7R2 got fried chip after one trip to Europe.

My best guess is they are mostly 70-200/2.8 or 24-70/2.8
I will pick 70-200 if I am a paparazzi, since I have to chase the running subject, and he/she may run or securities will block you once they see you.

That's why there is 索尼大法好 in Chinese forum.

I am interested on Sony too, but they too expensive...and fragile...I am planing to go 2 systems, if I have enough money.

I go wandering around a lot with my Pentax, and I will not bring a sony to anywhere I wander into, one hit on the ground and it is gone.

For wildlife and bird in the future, I may pick either sony or nikon.

In this case, I have one more excuse to get a new APS-C body:lol:
I guess this new 17-50 will not come out before K3-III, maybe both come out together?
Speak of APS-C, how did the KP go? It seems like the silent kid in the class.
