For me #10. Others had also good contrasting colors, but they are inferior for composition and other details.

Yes, exactly. I have always used proprietary PEF. Have no Lightroom and have no reason to use DNG.

And yes, I know Aperture is no longer spported, but when you have all your library on it and the software still works well there is no reason to revolutionazie your workflow and messing up everything. Particularly with software from a company that asks you to constantly pay for sofware usage instead of selling it to you...

Thanks for the feedback. I will try the Adobe RAW to DNG thing and will see...
But it sucks. I do not understand why they have to sell updates without providing plug-ins to read what they produce... Or do they expect people to develope a workflow in Silkypics...? Wew...

I have just discovered with much displeasure that RAW files from newly updated K1 Mark II can not be read by current Pentax profile embended into the Apple Camera Raw. I have 60 GB of images that need to be processed. I do not use Light Room and still stick with Aperure, thing that anyway is irrelevant, since it is the plug-in that makes them visible. Is there a way around it without using Pentax sucky software?

Laowa 12mm infinity focus

I grew to believe that it is a characteristic of the lens, despite I assume it was not intentional. Many lanses have difficulties in reaching full infinity. Being an ultrawide, it is supposed to be used in relative proximity to the subject, making it ideal for interiors rather than exteriors. Stopped down at f8 or 11 it is normally or acceptably sharp (even if not outstanding, in my opinion). Particularly in good light condition. Anywhere below that, you'd better have your main focus closer than infinity. It certainly is a pity (or also a waste of resources, if you want) having an f2.8 12mm that you can't use for low-light situations at the widest focal, be them landscapes, building or interiors, since af f8 or more - distortion set aside - you are pretty much served with other cheaper and even older solutions. F2.8 and high iso (and I mean 800... which is by no means high) on Pentax K1 give an horrendous and useless infinity detail, mostly unusable, inside large buildings like churches or palaces. I tested it a bit during the holiday. Results in that sense where quite deluding. I am certainly used to very high definition for certain jobs, and perhaps demanding to a 12mm the same you have from a 20mm is not proper. But a blurry/soft background, is beyond that, I guess. I contacted the guys and was requested some samples; they promised to look into it and let me know. But I haven't heard from them anymore.

I purchased a Laowa 12mm last month from Adorama for a job in January and I am having the same issue. I brought it in Italy to test it over the holidays and I noticed it does not reach infinity. It is really sharp at close range but infinity remains evidently fuzzy. I m already annoyed at the iter I will have to go through when I will be back to Tokyo, to send it back somewhere to have it fixed. There is evidently something wrong with the lens...
