FWIW, to my eyes, on my monitor(at work), the background in the first shot, looks warmer than that of the second shot. However, the book looks warmer (perhaps just richer?) in the second shot, than that of the first shot. All IMHO of course.

Thanks for posting the photos, very nice. Unfortunately I've decided to hold off on any new photography items at this time.

Best of luck.

Hi,

Is there any chance you could post a couple of uncropped photos taken with this lens? If not, I understand.

The bud on this flower was about the size of the sharpened end of a pencil, unfortunately I can't remember what it was called.

I think this is the first photo I'm posting here. I guess I've never felt any of my photos were good enough to share. But I like this one, although I have no clue when it comes to processing. I have three photo-editing programs, and can't quite get the hang of it.

I thought maybe there was some adapter, or method, that was a bit more......elegant, or stable. as opposed to jerry-rigged.:D:p

I had reattached the original knob with "high-strength" hot-glue, after it fell off. I cleaned both surfaces thoroughly & roughed up the inside of the aluminum knob. Didn't work, I lost it somewhere. This time I was thinking of trying some type of epoxy, I had heard of something called Tite-Bond or something like that.

The new knob comes with the plastic selector shaft(?) already attached, but I am NOT taking my camera apart. And if it's glued on with the same crap they glued the ones that fell off with, it should easy to separate & it would have just come off again anyway, like the original. I just have to wait for time to go to Home-Depot and see what adhesives they have.

Yes, they must have recently lowered the price, it was $135 at first.:eek:

I ended up caving and bought one at the $30 price, as I didn't see any other options materializing. Now I have to figure out how to attach it, so it doesn't come off again.:o

K-01 Mode Dial problem

This is awsome!! :D I'd be happy to send my K-01 as I'm not really using it right now. I'm on the east-coast.

One thing about the knob. Is the plan to have the markings "raised" / proud of the top plane of the knob as shown? IMHO it would be better if they were engraved, or recessed, into the knob surface, this way I could fill them with paint to mach the factory markings. Just a thought.

In any event, this is great news, private message me if you'd like.

someone was kind enough to post pictures & measurements, would that be enough for a 3D printer user?

Dust on/in a lens doesn't bother me much, but that filter ring dent gives me the willies, big time!
