K1 users: what lenses do you use?

Hi,
for me, my historical lens FA 20-35 F4 is always on my camera.
After, the FA 50mm F/1.4 is realy good.
and more rarely, I use the FA* 85mm f/1.4 and the incredible DA* 300mm F/4, for mountain landscapes.

K-1 ii + DA* 300mm F/4.
The association of these two products is terrible.

Hi, good question !
The DA* lens have the sameoptical formula than the FA*, with the new lens traitement.
In used market, it's usualy the same price, for an modern prime lens. Then why do you look for an FA* ?

Hi,
For me touchscreen only works with girl fingers.

For exemple, I can't write proprely on my cellphone, because I have hard worker hands, with the skin of my fingers too thick for it to work well.
And the last Pentax are all-weathers cameras.
Did you try to write a text on a wet touch screen?

A touchscreen is no the priority for me.
An autofocus system that works well, also with a 4k video mode, that's the priority.

Hi,
Pentax can not please to everyone ! Play in the same class as Nikon & Canon, is this the solution fot Pentax to be sestainable ?
But...

My girl have a Canon EOS M3, with a digital wiewfinder, plug on the flash socket.
In low light, it's realy comfortable, better than a pentaprisme. I don't know how work the preview fonction on this camera.
But I dislike the reactivity of this mirorless Canon camera, you always see reality with half a second behind.
And working on the sensor can heat the sensor if I don't make mistakes...
So what for Pentax in the futur ?

Hi,

The A 50mm F/1.4 have a better bokeh than the F/1.7 version.
Why an A 50mm, and not the FA 50mm F/1.4 ?
You can find a cheap on on Ebay.

Hi,
It's time to change my K-x.
Witch camera to replace it ?
For me the K-p has a too little autonomy.
The K-3ii is hold, but it can make the job.
The k-1 can be the solution, I don't need pop-up flash.
I often photograph landscapes, boats, work sites photos for the job.
Alls my lens can work in full frame.
I'm not hurry, I can wait pentax annoncement at Photokina.

If you have any adcive.

Hi all,
For me, 50mm F/1.4 on an APS-C camera. But 50mm is too short for a full frame like K-1.
For a K-1, A or FA 85mm F/1.4 will bee the good chos.

FA* or DFA WR lenses?
Posted By Le Fanfoué

Hi all,
To have an idea between the FA and the D-FA series, you can compare the FA* 200mm F/2.8 and the DA* 200mm F/2.8.
It's exactly the same optical formula, except that the treatment of DA * lenses is better. And the DA* is WR.

That why the DA* 200mm F/2.8 kill the FA* version.

Hi all,
If you want a fair comparison between these two lens, put a hood one the FA 50mm F/1.4 ...
Remenber this post, posted by MightyMike :
About Lens Hoods IMPORTANT! - Page 4 - PentaxForums.com

The FA is really better with a hood, " improvement in contrast and overall sharpness ".

Hi all,
A Teta With For Heads !
Pentax is chronically in late to realase new projects.
What's the futur for K-p series ?
I heard they put all the programming algorithms of their autofocus in the trash to start from zero.
I seriously guess Pentax works on the K-3 III, with the technological advances of the P, and a new Safox with more points and a new sensor.
