Also try using CIF, it works pretty well when focusing fast, manual lenses.

Google drive for clients and a 4tb Seagate NAS at home for a sort of cloud backup. Works very well so far(2+yrs), no monthly fees. I've also never in my life had a hard drive fail so am not too paranoid.

Is this lens designed for APS-C or full frame cameras? Does it have filter threads? Thanks.





It is designed for full-frame, no filter threads due to the large front element. Here is a link to the user reviews page:Samyang 14mm F2.8 ED AS IF UMC Lens Reviews - Samyang Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database
It's the same as the Samyang.

This has been a fun month for me, though tough to be consistent, especially with the flickr issues. I'd wanted to try the FA*24 for years but could never really justify it on paper. But like the FA LTDs that's not what this lens is about. The colors and bokeh are unparalleled. The sharpness is exactly where it needs to be. It's a professional lens in the sense that it does it's job without compromise. I'm probably going to sell it but only because of $$ reasons. But it will be tough as this lens is as good at pulling my heartstrings as the FA ltds are. A 3 lens travel/hiking kit of the 24, 43 and dfa100 would be pretty sweet.

This is my fav shot from the month:

As always, I really enjoyed seeing everyone's photos this month. This is a great little corner of the forums.

Pentax DA*55 mm 1.4 vs FA43 mm 1.9

I preferred the bokeh and overall look of photos with the 43. And I can use it on film cameras and with extension tubes or reversed, which you can't really do with the 55.


If you like the 77, you will like the 43.

On crop though I would recommend the 31 to go with the 77. Throw in a 15 and you are golden.

This copy has seen some use, but all functions work fine. The push-pull ring for the power zoom feels a little loose. Glass has the usual old lens dust but is otherwise clear.

Anyone use clarity or skin tone correction in KP or K-1?

I use skin tone 2 on the k-1 with some regularity for people shots which I won't have the time to PP. It works pretty well I except that it's very very slow to write. So it's a no go (mostly)for events, or group shots which is frustrating. I wish it would let you burst a few and then process them.
