are you happy with switching to FF?

I have to say that I did not switch to FF, but I came home to FF. Growing up with Pentax cameras in the film era, it took a little bit time to get used to the APS-C format, when I bought a K10D back in 2006. And although the K10D was, and probably still is, a fantastic camera (the colors!), I instantly felt home, when I took a first look through the viewfinder of the K-1: Alas, what a great sight! My glasses form the F-series perform very well on the K-1, I don't really care about the weight and size, so for me there will be no turning back to APS-C, I'm really happy with the K-1.

I have to admit, that this box was the only one left from the film era - I used to store the SFX-Body and the then popular Skylight-/UV-filters in this box.



Don't worry, nothing strange at all. I'm glad and thankful, that Pentax/Ricoh maintains this kind of backward compatibility - one of the reasons for sure the K-1 is such a success.

I currrently own the following lenses:
  • F24-50 F4

  • F28 F2.8

  • F50 F1.7

  • F50 F2.8 MACRO

  • F35-70 F3.5-4.5

  • F70-210 F4-5.6

  • F100 F2.8 MACRO

  • F135 F2.8


They all are widely used on my K-1 and perform very well, my current favourite being the F50 F2.8 MACRO: It has a wonderful bokeh and is ultrasharp, it's nothing short of amazing.

I used to own a F35-105 F4-5.6 and a F28-80 F3.5-4.5. The focal range of the first one didn't suite the APS-C sized sensor (for me!) of the K10D and the latter one, well, the performance is just bad.
You have to stop down to f8 to get at least decent images. So I was glad to sell both.

What I love is the colorrendition the F-lenses produce, really vivid and natural.

After starting photograpy with a PENTAX Program A, I bought a SFX with the F50 F1.7 lens in 1989; 27 years later I had a FF-body again:

If my memory serves me right, UHS-II has a theoretical transfer speed of 312MB/s. I'd say a very good real world implementation would deliver a maximum of 90%, that's 280MB/s. With bypassing the camera buffer this would result in 7,77fps with a 36mpx sensor and 6,66fps with a 42mpx sensor directly written to the SD-card until it's full. So I would opt for a 36mpx sensor.

Here are two shots, where the K10D performs very well (imho), even at ISO 1600. These were taken at a circus especially for children, where the kids learn some tricks and then perform them in front of the parents a few hours later. Of course the following task was only perfomed by one of the circus professionals;)

Well, I think the Pentax-F 35-70mm is neither insanely overrated nor overrated at all. It just delivers good IQ, even nowadays on a digital camera. It is definately not worse than my DA 18-55II and it is not so far behind my primes (F-28, F-50, F-100) in terms of sharpness and color rendition. I once used to have F 28-80 (only usable from f8 onwards), F 35-105 (1m minimum focusing distance) and the probably worst lens ever made by Pentax: FA 28-80 3.5-4-7. (never got a decent sharp image). Compared to those, you just can't overrate it. You might criticize the not so close minimum focusing distance or the fact, that it has only a double zoomrange, but you won't argue the IQ.

Sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused, you're absolutely right. I just had the impression the forum's software would scale them down to approbiate sizes automatically and present clickable links to the higher resolutions ....

Just fiddled a bit with Flickr's sharing options, hope it looks better now.

The K10D is my first and so far only DSLR; just waiting and putting money aside for the upcoming FF....
What I really do love about the combination of the K10D and lenses from the F-series is the great color rendition. Here are some of my all time favourites:
