Sharpest K-mount lens with K-1? Any f-stop.

cheap, flexible, fast, dreamy Bokeh and very sharp FF zoom. Better as a lot of modern FF Zooms in this range! SMC Pentax-M 1:2.8 35mm - 1:3.5 70mm (all the way f2.8, only at 70mm it is f3.5)
Ricoh should make it with AF.

50-135 versus 70-200 in IQ?

if you ask me, the 50-135 is a fantastic lens. If you have a K-1 you can use it in crop mode with the same resolution of a K-5 ... I never would sell this lens. It is to good!

the only way the Metz Flashes work as Masterflash with the K-1 is if you use the APS-C Crop Mode. In FF and 1:1, the Masterflash function does not work. So if you want to use the flashes as Master you have to work in APS-C Crop Mode.

Pentax 300 lens choice

The DA*200 works well with the HD DA 1.4x Converter on K-1. Only a little bit vignetting in the corners. Not very strong. The A*300/4 is better than the DA*200 with the HD DA Converter, but best results you get from f5.6 on with the A*300/4. The A* has a neardistance of 4 meters! The modern 300er are better in this concern.
Best Converter for the DA*200 is the A 1.4x-L Converter, but it is a manual Converter no AF, but also no los of IQ with the DA*200. Best thing with the A 1.4x-L is you can stack it with another Converter liek the HD DA 1.4x or the F 1.7x AF Converter or if you are crazy and have a real good Tripod stack all three of them. The A 1.7x AF at the End and you have fast AF with a very long tele ... works fine, but no chance without a good tripod!

My copy of the DA*55 shines on the K-1. It is better than ever before on all my other bodys. I can recommend the DA*55 if you need a lens for Portrait shooting with that lengh.

@Rondec: f18 isn't the sweetspot of this lens. Best Resolution is between f4 and f11 if you look at the MTF charts

The DA*55 is a realy great performer with the K-1. It is razorsharp from f2 on with fantastic bokeh. In my opinion the DA*55 performs better with the K-1 than with all other bodys. Just try this lens and it will stick like glued on your K-1.

I own the A*300/4 a really nice lens, it is very good from f5.6 on, but the min. focus distance is 4 meters. Why you dont use the DA*200/2.8 – great bokeh and tac sharp.

the Metz Mecablitz 48 AF-1 needs the firmwareupdate 6.0 than it works fine with the K-1. But the 48 AF-1 only supports the slave-mode, for master-mode you need the bigger brother, the 58AF-1 (with firmware 6.0)
