Some convient neck-strap solution for GR?
Posted By i5_david

Hey there,

after shooting K-1 for more than one year I am falling in love with my GR all over again.
For me the GR puts my feet always again on the ground, because you really have to take GOOD photographs to have good photos with it. On the K-1 you shoot in f/1.4 and the bokeh does the rest in some occasions ;)

Anyway, Most of the time I hold the Wrist strap of my GR and put it in my jackets pocket. I wonder if there is any convenient neck strap solution for the GR. I saw a picture with Peak Design's strap but this system takes another 50 (yeah, call my cheap).

Does anyone carry the GR with a neckstrap? Thanks for input and ideas in advanced! Have a nice sunday!

Hey Ranchy, great shots. Like also the Bokeh photos, nice use of the glas.
Thanks for some IRIX love. Looks like this lens is really a coo UWA alternative for Pentaxshooters.
This and Samyang 20 are on my list right now.

Momentary more lurker than active poster... but KEEP EM COMING! Love this thread!

Cool, thanks guys. I was pretty sure I was naive about this... thanks for the insights. the KAF4 mount sounds really good. Maybe we will see some good glass in near future based on this concept? The K-1 is capable of handling KAF4 lenses, isn't it?

So, now all eyes on Ricoh, they have in a few hours their conference, don't they?

Sigma has their mount changing program. Ok, I am not a pro and understand all the implications behind this, but to me it seems that it is not that hard work to produce a lens in different mounts. so, since all glas is produced in the same hall... why wouldn't they produce some pentax versions too when it is only a change of the little tiny metal element on the back end (I am sure I am missing something, so I fasten my seatbelt to learn something :)) thanks mates!

I cannot really understand why sigma seems to abandon Pentax. ITs the first FF model and ricoh has not the fast primes ready (yet)... why should/would sigma not harvest all those pentax ff shooters with their art lineup!? don't understand this...
fingers crossed for ricoh.

Hopefully we will see some glass coming up for Pentax during photokina.
Seems that Sigma has forgotten us... no new ART for the K-mount.
Lately all new glas is a Sony-E or so.

Anyone with some news and information for our Pentaxmount?

DA* 55 on FF

I am planning to replace my FA 50 1.4 with the DA 55 1.4
To be honest I really like the hood that comes with it - does it really have issues with attached hood?!?
Somehow I see different opinions regarding its FF compatibility on K-1.
Is it worth to upgrade or will I be disappointed or have to crop my shots manually after the shooting!?
Thanks in advanced!

Kai has really disappointed me with this poor show video. The jokes are bad and pathetic (didn't get the idea with the dildo!?!), he has no plan what camera he had to review here. He said the limiteds are his favorites glas ever and he shows 700K people his butt crack when shooting the beach scene the 100th time.

They could have done it, but as they said in these interview series they really wanted to have a pentax camera. and I like the fact that they used and kept the "pentax" alive...
(btw. still waiting on my grip :D)

Cool idea though.
Did you use lightroom for putting these together? Never did a multirowpano yet. like the fov and the sharpness of your shot, Bernard.

What exactly is this focus limiter. I read so much reviews of these 100er macro lenses but I couldn't fiddle out what this focus limiter is.
I have a DF-A 100 Macro 2.8 here and the WR Version in the mail (the other will be sold then, that I have at least one WR lens haha, I had to be quick since these lenses are somehow really rare here around)
