K-1 not recognising Samyang lenses
Posted By othar

The focal length 14mm is not transfered to the camera you have to input this information yourself for a correct working Shake Reduction system and to show the correct focal length in the metadata.
What should be transfered is the aperture (if your top display shows F-- it means your aperture ring is either not in the A position or you need to clean the contacts of the lens and camera mount before putting them together again.)

edit: the focal length isn't transfered to your K20D too, but if this is your only lens without focal length transmission to the camera you might have to input the focal length just once and never again, because it doesn't change.

Limiting the Widest Aperture on K Mount?
Posted By othar

Imitate a A lens either with paint or tape by recreating the pattern of another f2.5 lens on the lens mount. The metering for small apertures like f8 or smaller will be wrong but for nearly open like f2.8 it should be fine (or lets say the metering will be right but your lens won't stop down to the correct F-stop)

K-1 video lens?
Posted By othar
Replies: 7

I just play around with videos from time to time on my K-3, so I am not really skilled when it comes to video.
Nevertheless here are some thoughts I have on the topic:

- The video resolution is not really high so you don't need the sharpest lenses available, your main concern will be focal length and aperture according to your desired video settings (low-light?, indoor/outdoor? how thight is the area? something like this)
- I don't know about the K-1 but when I change the aperture with the camera on my K-3 during filming my video freezes for a short moment, therefore I recommend a lens with aperture ring to change it manually - preferably a lens with de-clicked aperture ring (preset lenses are a cheap possibility (Helios 44, Meyer Optik Lydith 30mm, ....) or some other old lenses which can be easily converted to a de-clicked aperture ring, new possibilities would be available from Samyang.

edit: If the K-1 doesn't freeze when changing aperture or if you don't have any changing lighting conditions during filming your kit-lens or in your case your D-FA 24-70mm will be fine too.

What's the Fastest Lens You Own?
Posted By othar

I have the Samyang 35mm f1.4, I usually shoot at f2 when photographing stars.
My Pentax A 50mm f1.7 usually gets used at f2.8 in low-light situations.
For general photography in daylight I use both at f4 - f5.6 sometimes f8, depending on the DoF I need.
Both (especially the Samyang lens) are good enough to use wide open, but focus is easier to achieve when stopped down a tad.
