I can confirm.
I applied the same firmware more than two years ago and never had a problem.

Thanks for playing along this week.

I had a hard time picking a winner and changed my mind multiple times, but finally choose Glenn5995. It was a close call between him and Todd.

I really like the golden tone of Glenn's elaboration, reflecting well the light present at the moment the picture was taken (shortly after sunrise).

On the other hand I'm particularly fond of the velvia look. It reminds me so much of the postcards that were sold here in the 80's and works really well on this image.

Seeing Glenn's image for the first time, I thought "this is the winner", but the more I looked at Todd's elaboration, the more I liked it. In the end it was a toss-up and I went with my first instinct.

So congrats Glenn, looking forward to your next challenge!

PS: Just for fun, I also edited the picture. It's not what I usually would do to an image with such luscious colours, but I had fun doing it.

Thanks!

The vineyard is near my house and I can photograph it from my loggia. The hill is classified as agricultural zone and construction isn't allowed, but sadly this isn't true for the area beneath the street.

At the time, framing was a pita because of a tower crane and my neighbour's tree :mad:

The crane is now gone and my neighbour cut the protruding branches, but the white house on the right still disturbs the view.

For this week's post processing challenge, I chose one of the first pictures I took with the 55-300mm PLM. I'm very satisfied with this lens and would recommend it to everyone who owns a compatible APS-C camera.

I'll close the challenge next Wednesday 2/27.

Two shots taken from my bathroom's window with the K-S1.

The DA 55-300 PLM is one of my most used lenses and I'm very happy with it.

Time to give my S-M-C Takumar 50mm F4 macro a spin. The borage in my garden is crawling with bumblebees.

DA 21 ltd replacement for K-1 ?

My 55mm standard lens hood has the same measures. 24mm high and 58mm diameter.
However, the 55mm wide angle lens hood is closer in size to the original Takumar 28mm 3.5 lens hood. The Takumar is 6x7cm, while the Chinese lens hood has a diameter of 77mm and is 22mm high.

I mounted the Chinese lens hoods on the SMC Takumar 28mm 3.5 with a 49-55mm step up ring. The Takumar lens hood is on a Super Takumar 55mm 2.0 and I used bubble wrap to match the slightly different lens height.









You should be fine with a 49mm wide angle lens hood.

You're welcome. It's also a great source for Arca-Swiss compatible quick release plates, L-brackets and clamps.
Shipping takes a while, but I've never been disappointed with any of my purchases.

I just verified and my k-30 has the same behaviour. If even a problem, I consider it very minor.

Took one minute. The typo in the title (Ojektiven instead of Objektive) made it a very easy find.

From October 11 to December 25 I shot 1505 pictures and the maximum interval between shootings was 7 days. It's not me, it's the camera.
