Leaving Pentax

I had Pentax (K100Ds, K20D, K5, K5-IIs, K-3, K-1, K-1 II) and a lot of lenses (best for me were for example FA31, FA43, FA77 and DA*300) but I sold it all. why?
good focus only on center and not always, the production of new modern lenses has slowed...

now I have Sony A7R3 with EyeAF and good focus out of center (in april 2019 new firmware with animal EyeAF) with Voigtländer 15/4,5 III + Sony FE28/2 + FE50/1,8 + FE85/1,8 and no problem.

what can we expect from CP + 2019 ? GRIII + HD11-18 and that is all. sadly.

Fenwoodian: I do not have K-1 anymore :-(


I just tried to compare with K-1 II classical Pixel Shift from tripod (motion correction ON/OFF), handheld Pixel Shift Resolution, handheld ES (electronic shutter) and handheld normal shot.


full scene - K-1 II + FA43



normal shot - electronic shutter - Pixel Shift from tripod motion correction ON



Pixel Shift from tripod motion correction ON - handheld Pixel Shift Resolution



Pixel Shift from tripod motion correction ON - Pixel Shift from tripod motion correction OFF - handheld Pixel Shift Resolution



for me, the best is classical PS from tripod, but handheld PS is also OK. so no big surprise.


but what surprised me was the AF with K-1 II (this I absolutely did not shoot so well with K-1) look at the photos, in different light (sunny, cloudy, in shadow, fluorescent light, at night):
AF-S, spot AF (a small photographed subject and far from me)
FA77/1,9 Limited


FA135/2,8

HD DFA 28-105/3,5-5,6 WR




AF-S, spot AF with composition change, FA77/1,8 Limited @f2,2




AF-C, SEL-2
FA77/1,9 Limited @f2,2







the weak is only 4.4fps and a small buffer






AF-S, spot AF, FA43/1,9 Limited @f2,2
lights off in the office, ISO 3.200

photo taken through a double glass in the window with reflections from inside, ISO 2.500

AF-S, spot AF, FA31/1,8 Limited ISO 16.000 (@f10 due to the ISO test)


I hope that K-1 will also get firmware with AF algorithms from K-1 II :-)
...so where are the bad results from Dpreview?

PS: I'm sorry for my English

I do not believe in all the reviews. I sold K-1 and bought K-1 II.


benefits for K-1 II:
- accurate AF-S (no hunting), better AF-C (only about 5% of inaccurate focused photos)......but only for spot AF point and A-9/SEL-2 mode
- Pixel Shift Resolution to be used handheld without artefacts
- K-1 II ISO 16.000 look like ISO 12.800 on K-1


on the left K-1 II, on the right K-1....the same lens, the same settings (DNG, NR OFF.....export from Adobe Lightroom CC2015 without adjustments)
AF-C SEL-2, ISO 1.250, Tamron AF SP 70-200mm f/2,8 Di LD (IF) Macro

AF-S spot AF, ISO 6.400, Pentax HD PENTAX-D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6 ED DC AW



I would buy K-1 II again if someone asked me.

DA200 2.8 - good for portraits (on a K1)?

zeitlos: thank you. anyway, DA*200 is for me too long for portaits. I like more FA77/1,8 Limited for the 3/4 body portraits.


K-1 + FA77/1,8 Limited (from f1,8 to f2,2)











Tamron 70-200/2,8 is good zoom and cheap, but DA*200 is opticaly better for me and lighter, you can not use zoom ofcourse.

DA*200/2,8 SDM is excelent on K-1, sharp from f2,8, 3D rendering, creamy bokeh, but it is to long for comunication with the models (on Nikon D750 I like Nikkor 135/2DC), I'm waiting for D-FA HD 135/1,8 PLM WR :-D

FA43 or DA*55 ?


FA43. why? because rendering.
f1,9

f2,0

f2,2



I own FA31, FA43, FA50, FA77, M135/3,5, DA*200, Sigma 24-70/2,8IF EX DG HSM and my prefer lenses are FA43 and FA77.
To play with DOF I bought cheaply FA50.
I also tried DA*55 and did a bit of fringing at f1.4 (sharpness was better like on FA50).


others APS-C lenses what I tried on my K-1 (without postprocesing)
DA40 @2,8

DA50 @1,8

DA*55 @1,4



good luck :-)
