K1 back now..what is best 24mm lens??

Hi the K1 has better IQ/resolution than the D500 of course..was thinking to get the D850 if I sell my K1 & lenses?? more that no WA primes are coming from Pentax/Sigma for a long time it seems. & the D850 in crop is 20mpx... prob the best camera out now for the price.
But if its moving stuff --birds ,wildlife.etc... the D500 rocks.. Group AF I use the most,with a function button on front to switch to Single pt AF..So far best results that way.I use manual mode with auto ISO, like the Pentax auto ISO mode.Jpegs are quite good, but I always shoot Raw+ Jpeg,as NR on Jpegs cannot be totally turned off. At ISO 6400 I can quite clean bird shots..bit weird as 3200-6400 is sometime better than ISO 1200-1600?? I use DXO if their is noise,as their Raw noise algorithm is great.
Live view is quicker than Pentax, but still slow..never use it much..Video is better than Pentax as 4K. Lenses go on the other way..still messes me up ;) it feels great in the hands..& lighter than K1. The PF300 is like 1/3 ligher than other 300 F4, & with a 1.4 TC is so handy to use. For Landscapes I use K1 as res. is better & DR..
And the buffer on D500 is 200 shots raw!! with QXD card..never have run out of buffer space..hate the K1 is 12 frames(raw) then locks up for 1 min or more..missed too many shots. But now the K1 upgrade is out it may be close to D850 in high ISO & DR?? m must see tests.. Hope this helps

Hi Dick
Good idea to try it there.. with the 1.7TC it works on K1, 1.4 center is ok--but not optimal
Good weekend to you as well :)

Cheers Shanti

Hi Dick
depends alot on your needs to.. I was hoping the K1 upgrade would address AF problems,but pixel shift & lower noise not my priorities ;) & buffer of 12 shots(Raw) sucks for BIF
after I got the D500 , It was like coming from stone age to 2017..as far as keepers go with AFC
since your in Holland, I use my friends at Fotolooman for new gear..usually great prices & very friendly

Hi Dick
the lens is sharp & great IQ/contrast--my problem has been AFC tracking for BIF & Pentax is still yrs behind Nikon.. after using D500 , I decided to keep Pentax K1 for landscape/slower wildlife(still have DA300) ..so don't use it at all ..therefore selling.

Cheers Shanti

I do not want to harm the birds..diffuse extender may not be as hard as 'raw' flash?? ..just so dark the next months here..normally never use flash but want to experiment. also have LED lights but not waterproof for outdoor use...ISO 12.000 gets me in focus shots..but details lacking ;)

Hi what is a good flash to use on K1 + 300mm/150-450mm for fill in light for birds/BIF at close distances. I will use an extender of some sort.
Thanks

Yes my point..how hard to make a 24mm even 2.8 lens .. of course the 24-70 is great,but a bit heavy if one needs other lenses as well with,for trips
just too bad my old Sigma 24 doesn't fit(Oly mount) as great lens in my film days

I just wonder if my 4 yr old DA*300 will focus faster with a new SDM motor. Don't think the old SDM now is bad--no noise,just so slow to acquire focus on K1. In crop mode a bit faster..use single point mostly for birding
Thought maybe a new motor coul dhelp?? anyone have experience with this

Thanks
