Was able to get a brief sample of an Fa43 on the K1. I forgot it was set to square format, lol. I don't mind the bokeh at all.

After much deliberation, I just added the DFA 28-105. For a few hundred dollars to get a weathersealed, versatile zoom, it just made sense. especially since i'm viewing the k1 as my landscape camera.

The 43 will be my next and possibly final lens. Actually, i keep getting tempted by helios 44 and lensbaby velvet, lol, so maybe them as well!

Panasonic S1R

Panasonic (and M43 in general) are quite similar in many ways to Pentax. They build very well layed out camera's. Plenty of us use both. It's mainly the cost of the S1 line that has put me off.

I think I'll stick with my K1 for FF use. I got mine barely used for 1/6th the price of an S1R. That's a heck of a lot of money for the convenience of an EVF.

It's not a manufacturing issue. It's simply CRK not wanting to overstock on a not-overly-popular product line. Sigma lenses would be the bulk of their business, not Pentax gear. And of that gear, the full frame bodies probably wont be the biggest sellers either.

DA 35 and FAJ 70-300

K1 users: what lenses do you use?

I'm making do with a pair of cheap primes -DA35/2.4 and DA50/1.8 . The 35 has had most use in my three weeks of K1 ownership. Yesterday I bought a cheap FA-J 75-300 in a thrift shop. I have a k55/1.8 somewhere around here that I haven't used on the K1 as yet. I have a 50/1.4 Sigma but I'm having problems with AF accuracy and I find I prefer the smaller form factor of the DA's.

I'm strongly considering the 28-105 for it's weathersealing, and the FA 43 for its focal length. It's a shame the 15 Limited doesn't cover FF. I'm not sure what to do with the wide angle issue. I can get a 15-30 for a very decent price but it's very big and filters are awkward.

I've been using my Mk1 for about a week. It's simply great to use and I'd happily use the money saved on a MK2 on a lens instead.

Handheld jpeg, NR turned off iirc, Iso4000.

I have only seen this at phone size, I'll be curious to see it on a 17 inch screen.

As a newcomer to the K1, my contribution to any "which lens should I get first" is now unquestionably the DA35/2.4 . Ridiculously cheap, light, small and it has character on the K1. (I do need a lens hood for it though). If only it was weathersealed, lol. Incidentally, are any of the smaller primes weather resistant?

These are jpegs, two of them are at iso1000 and i still love the oof area's.

This lens seems far better than its price would suggest! Small, cheap, light and it even proves useful on the K1 sensor.

I picked up a Pentax-A 35-70 macro a few years ago, then promptly forgot about it. Put it on the K1 today. It's not overly inspiring as a general lens so far, but the macro focusing at 70mm is interesting.

Quick update:

1) The concept of the multi function dial is sheer genius. There are a couple of functions that I wish were something else, but I love mechanical access to avoid menu's. Immediate availability of wifi, crop frames etc is very cool and something I will use.

2) I wish the movie switch under the mode dial was access to the metering modes instead.

3) This camera encourages contemplative shooting, not least because the wifi function is so slow, lol.

4) I'm having some focus issues with the 50/1.4 . It misses sometimes even though the camera has confirmed focus. I can sometimes get much sharper results with manual focus. Looks like a session of AF adjustment beckons. Or I might send it off for calibration to my body.

5) All things considered, I think I'll pick up the 28-105 rather than the 24-70 Sigma also on offer. Hopefully it plays nicer with the AF system , and weather sealing makes a lot of sense.

6) I need to run the 35/2.4 and 150-500 to see how they behave.

7) it's a fun camera to use. And the files look beautiful if I do my bit right. And I haven't even looked at the Raws yet.
