I took this one two days ago at morning sunrise. Image is of a Canadian Coast Guard Cutter at the north end of Baynes Sound. Sunrise produced a wonderful backlighting to the ship. The Pacific Coastal Mountains share in the Glory. Image taken with my K1 Mark II paired with a Sigma 70-200 HSM OS

Well done Mike. These images of the Loons and Cormorants are outstanding. You obviously have that lens calibrated to perfection.

viewfinder manual focus harder on the K-1 harder than on the K-5

I"ve had the opposite experience with my K1 Mark II. I have a number of manual lenses that I have never been able to use effectively on either my K5 or K3II. Now that I have the K1, I'm using my manual 400mm lens as well as a number of A lenses that I have collected over the years.

It appears to be a great design would be nice to see the concept widened to include other focal lengths as well as implement it in full format.

Do k-1 mkii raw files open with no problems in LR6?

LR handles the DNG files, but the PEF files are not recognized. Also there are no profiles available for the K1 Mark II at this time. If you are satisfied to work with the LR defaults then no problem.

I should think that developing one or two teleconverters should not be that complicated. Pentax has already successfully developed a converter for APSC glass. It seems to me that the biggest challenge they faced with that converter was the electronics.

I have a Kenko Pz-AF 1.5x Teleplus MC Teleconverter and have used it on my K1Mark II when paired with my FA*300 f4.5. Focus is fast and reliable. I have used it on stationary items, but haven't tried it on moving objects such as birds. Hope to give it a try this weekend.

I was looking at the $15US a month which becomes $180 per year. Convert that into Canadian Pesos and it is about $235 per year. Currently, I'm paying $24.95US per year for Flickr.

Yes, the image was processed in Topaz Glow. Nothing is real in the image. Just thought i would try something different. Thanks for noticing.

I have a pro account on Flickr. When I heard that SmugMug purchased Flickr I checked SmugMug out. Very expensive membership fees. I'm concerned that my annual pro account fee will increase to the point that I can't afford it. I presently have thousands of images on Flickr. Hate to lose what I like about Flickr. I'm hoping for positives, but may have to move somewhere else.

I too am impressed with my K1Mark II. I had a successful shoot of the RCAF Snowbirds on Thursday. Camera handled the fast moving jets quite well. Focus was spot on. RCAF Snowbirds | Flickr

Video review of the Pentax K1 mkII

I just got back from shooting the RCAF Snowbirds at Canadian Forces Base Comox. While the jets were in flight I shot exclusively with my K1Mark II paired with an FA 300 f4.5. Haven't looked at all the images so far, but one thing was certain. The lens never lost focus as it has done frequently on both my K5 and K3MarkII. Focus felt very confident even when shooting moving jets at 1/2000 and 1/4000 sec.

Since the work has already been done for the teleconverter for the APSC lenses, I imagine the biggest challenge will be in the glass. The electronics in the present one should port over seamlessly with few modifications.
