Is there a post-process way to manage reflections then? That's a main reason I carry (or wish I had carried) a CPL.

Tulip mania - Wikipedia

The point? You are never going to be convinced. Others will never be unconvinced. What would you spend your $2000 on? Computers? Hats? Baked Beans? Someone will be able to come up with some condescending reasons why that would be a waste of money. Why not just decide for yourself that the A*135 is a waste of *your* money and get on with your life without ridiculing those who might disagree?

Are you talking about the Japanese sellers on ebay? I send messages to them all the time. I've never bought a lens at their advertised "Buy it now" price. I always offer about 75% and they usually counter with something or they tell me to buzz off. If the former, we negotiate a little, and if the latter, I go on with my life. If the former leads to success, then I usually end up paying 80-85% of the asking price.

Focussing screens for the K1 DIY split image

While reading threads here on third party focusing screens and trying to figure out whether or not they will include all the needed shims for a proper fit, and whether you guys are satisfied or not with your screens, the good boys and girls at focusingscreens.com put up a new link for K-1 mII screens now for sale. While I have no doubt these are the very same screens already available for the K-1 original, the fact that they did this while I was doing the research seems to me a Jungian synchronicity, so I suppose I should buy one.

I recently picked up some fast A* primes and have the K50/1.2 already and have been aggravated at low hit rate despite having just been told by my eye doctor that my eyesight is pretty good for the middle-aged but not yet quite old fart that I am. So I presume I need a focus assist of some kind.

I'm a bit leary of the S-type screens due to the brightness dropoff phenomenon, since I use some of my lenses with TCs that lower max f-stop past f/4, so I suppose split image finders are better? If you're using a FS screen on your K-1, which did you choose, and how did it work out for you? I'm leaning toward a split-image but also find the examples of the microprism assists quite striking. I'd also be interested in hearing something on the Nikon screens since everyone seems to get the Canons.

I still think polarizers are a good investment... that is if one can keep track of them. I'm going to resign myself to one set of filters per camera bag, which means I guess I'll have to buy 1000 sets of filters. :o

I've found the Kaesemann B+W filters are pretty good, and can be found used for a fairly reasonable price.

Bruce, what's your opinion now that you've got some more experience under your belt on the general utility of Pixel Shift vs Photoshop stacking? Do you have a bottom line summary in a few words? It looks like the stacking solution is working out well, so do you still use Pixel Shift? If so, when would you opt for one over the other?

I pelt you with questions as I've spent time fiddling with dynamic Pixel Shift and have so far been underwhelmed.
