Fragaria vesca - wild strawberry, one of the most beloved berry of summer and we actually don't know how it looks real close.

Sunset at the boglake couple of summers ago. Remeber that I stood on the turf in the water and someone took a lens from my bag and threw it to me for that snapshot.

Have anybody compared image quality of 35/2 and 20-35/4? Modern 15-30/2,8 seems too big, so I’m looking for alternatives among old and light wide angles.

Carrot-top. After official photoshoot I had my chance to take some photos at abandoned concert hall. After noticing this bright green graffiti was clear that some photos should be taken there. (Btw, the carrot-colour is natural, just a bit boosted in PP :-)

On Safari with the K-1 and the Pentax-DA 60-250mm lens

Today I found a review about using D-FA 150-450 with a DA 1,4 teleconverter - - and it made me to share similar dilemma I had a year ago. Found this thread, seemed appropriate.

In February this year a safari in Kenya was ahead and I didn’t know which tele lens to take along. I had modified 60-250 for K-1 and it worked perfectly - no (significant) vignetting etc. But I assumed that 250mm is a bit short for safari and thought how 60-250 with DA 1,4 TC would work on K-1. Made thorough testing and found that this combo is mostly like disaster, TC amplifies all the weaknesses of 60-250 and adds some new. It would be usable at cropped mode of K-1 (but I wanted to keep it FF as to leave the room for cropping). Results:
- Acceptable sharpness only at F8-11 and only in the centre of the frame
- Heavy purple fringing
- Heavy vignetting (from some point not recovarable in PP)
And what I found - Pentax DA 1,4 TC works pretty well with old Tamron 70-200 :-) Actually, on K-1 in FF mode Tamron 70-200 F2,8 is sharper around the frame than Pentax DA 60-250. Pentax is said that if even some DA lenses work on K-1, these are designed for APS-C, i.e. the IQ might not be as expected. And I’ve found that it results mostly on softness in corners and edges (in my case more on DA 60-250 and less on DA 40 Ltd).

So, for safari I rented D-FA 150-450 and I was very happy about that decision.

Time after time I drive over that bridge. One night when first snow of the season covered the land I took a step aside for that view.
