New video review: Pentax 31mm f1.8 limited Vs Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens on K1

I've finally made my choice for best lens brothers, and it was a difficult one indeed. The loser was packed up and sent away, but not without a tear of regret in my eye. 'We'll always have Paris.'

I compared the illustrious old Pentax 31mm f1.8 limited lens to the lauded new Sigma 35mm f1.4 on the K1. I made a video review showing how I made my decision, and included sample videos and photos for you too.

Check it out here...

I've had the Pentax K1 for a while now after choosing it over the Nikon D750 and even D810, as well as other options like the Fujifilm XT2 and Sony A7R series. Which is better, and which do I use more? I've made a couple of videos - first when I had used the camera for a short while, and a second when I understood it.

Brothers I really love the Porst 55mm f1.2 - it's a really interesting lens and has a different character in different uses.

Their coat is good for specular highlights so with enough flash from the right direction and a darker background they can shine. Otherwise they're like black holes!



This is with the Samyang 135mm f2 lens which is pretty much as sharp as the Pentax 70-200mm f2.8 lens but warmer and manual focus.

Brothers, the Samyang 135mm f2, when compared side-by-side with my Pentax 70-200mm f2.8, is smaller, lighter, has the benefit of a larger aperture and seems to have slightly better image quality. It's also very, very good value. This comes at a cost of manual focus and no weather sealing. But it's a bargain of a lens.

Thanks, yes there's definitely more to mirror lenses than the doughnut bokeh, it's good fun to have the compression & reach in such a compact lens. The depth of field is shallow too so gives an in interesting look with stitched photos...
