K-1 mark II imminent

hmmm. I have to agree that minor upgrade is good thing. seems that K-1 has managed well, and there is a way to improve that, so why not. as Rondec said at previous page, K-3 is getting little long in the teeth and might get replaced, I have thought exactly like vise. but will it be this or next K-1 . . . there is the question. better high ISO and functional Pixel Shift hand-held shooting sounds good. I think that I’ll wait and see. but atleast here at Finland, high ISO is quite often needed.

interesting.

I do also think that they are cooking something even more interesting stuff what will be coming to that aps-c flagship, and from there to FF and 645 system, so this is not just buying some time. if that accelerator chip is so effective, it could be also upgraded for next generation models. I suppose that improved PS ability and there fore SR functionality improvements are opening whole new things. It is getting more and more IBIS systems, so need to improve that.

time to wrap up. Samyang 14/2.8

I'v had this lens for quite long for now. I had earlier this month the Idea of having 15-30 to get 15 and 20-35/2.8 in one, and also I have had that lens in my mind (LBA) for Loooong time. well. Let's say that this month cured me from that. I did do some shooting with 20-35 and I thing that that lens will do. with this 14/2.8 for what I need to shoot when I want wide. I'm not if I have mastered this lens yet, or not, but I think that I know what I should use it for. I can see why some one could be obsessed whit these, but for me, it is not obsession, just fun.

Technically this lens has a lot of lackings, everyone knows them, by looking at reviews. Also that goes for the strengts. I actually did not mind some times that moustash distortion. And sometimes correcting it did take that 'pop' away from the shot be cause it went straight. wide angle lens needs some distortion actually, at least IMO. It is lens, that is quite a lot of fun to shoot with, and really good bang for buck. Dial f 8 and shoot away, you'll be good. Edges leaves something to wish for as does flaring. That is the price that you pay for when you go for better lens. But IF you use this wide lens just every now and then...this will do. My fingers are itching for after my limiteds now.

all in all, great lens. If I would look for wide lens now and I would not have this already, I'm not sure if I'd buy this lens again. I actually bought it for my K-3 when I wanted something more wide than 16 mm. I think that I'm back in square of finding 18-20 mm prime to have light option and then something more narrow than that. I had lot's of fun too at this month. So this lens is not going anywhere. I will use it when needed. Thank you all for this month!

here is couple of my favorites from this month.

I think that 36 MP is just right. General performance could always be improved, and I think that it will. I have already found that raising flash sync to 1/200 has solved many things on that field, now improving thirdparty functionality, it would be even better. I'm not worried of shutter shock BTW knowing it and doing workaround is enough. AF needs improvement more than SR. IMHO. :)

Hi, no pixel Shift, just a Flash to add some crispiness to picture. Hand held f5,6 on ’macro’ mode on that lens.

Well, that DA 55-300 is quite good on FF too. I have it as WR version. Nice and zippy AF on K-1.
Look, I have nothing against having fun with old gear, where you can find great bargains. But those bargains should not diverse idea of what is worth and how much. I and a lot of others have paid K-1 what has been asked, And quite frankly, I have no regrets. As I might have for example some other gear that I have paid for. I liked my K-3 too, but this is so much better ergonomically, functionally...so I am happy with it. Is it worth it. Yes. But in couple yrs.there will be better one ;)

The thing is that here is not any moves like that going on.

And actually K-1 is great for what it is what you want it so cheap, is that you are Little cheap. Especial Wien you have bought Sony A7 When it is so cheap, it kind a underlines that. Now D850 is great, but it is also more expensive, where as D610 is what it is...making K-1more cheap does not change much things, atleast on your list. So what bring it up?

Sure when net model eventually comes it changes, but as Kenspo said, there is not much like that to be waited ni near future..

I have also 55-300 WR and have been not using it lately because of those corners, but one can always crop..but at middle, it is good, if not great.

Thanks, yes, K-1 SR is really effective with this wide lens. just have to remember to squeez that trigger, not push, then it can even go 0,8 or even 1 second. 0,4 is doable and repeatable. sorry for my funny english words :D

Great details from that old crop lens, Savoche.

here is one from today with my Sammy 14, 3 image stitch, did not correct 'profile' with LR. So it kind a extends its faults and turns it to almost fishy.
