I don't have the 31 (yet!) but I'm sure it's worth owning the 43 too!

I bought a used (LN-) 43mm Limited lens from KEH a few months ago but didn't actually get my hands on it until late July. I'm gobsmacked. There were no indications that the lens had ever been touched by human hands, let alone used, so huge praise for KEH. It is an absolutely lovely lens and it seems like a match made in heaven for my K-1 Mark II. The focal length is very convenient and, while I'll admit that the bokeh is a little busy at times, I love this lens and, for me, it is already a no-brainer for my "desert-island" lens. Here are a few photos from my first couple of weeks with it. These photos were all taken in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado USA, which is a stunning location. The structures were built by native peoples approximately 800 years ago and many of them are in remarkable condition. The structures, in their day, were plastered and colored and I imagine they were even more stunning then than they are now.

Thanks Eva for starting things off again. Some nice photos so far -- birds, spiders, sunsets, dogs, flowers!

I spent a few weeks in the U.S. including a week of camping in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. Fabulous place. Ancient (circa 1250 A.D.) ruins built onto cliff faces by Ancestral Puebloans. Many of them are still in remarkable condition. Some wildlife and gorgeous scenery as well.

Nice!

I'm a little embarrassed to admit it but I've been playing with the Unicolor Bold digital filter on my K-1 lately. I generally find selective color to be cringe-worthy but I admit it's been kind of fun too, and this car would have been great!

Greetings Eva et. al.!

Here are a few from my week.

Some night shots of Hong Kong, some birds I saw at my neighbor's house (I've only seen these guys once in my neighborhood), and a gorgeous lizard of some sort that I've seen off and on for the past couple of weeks on my walk home from work. I finally had time to run home and grab the camera. Not only was it still there but it posed nicely for me.

There are some fantastic photographers who routinely post on this site, but I like the idea of a newer / less-experienced but enthusiastic Pentax shooter having a fair shot at winning a prize so I support Mark's suggestion. Demonstrated enthusiasm and active participation on the forums effectively gets you a raffle ticket. And any photography-related goodies with a Pentax logo on them would be great!



And this is a great idea too!

Tough call. I can't even decide which single lens to take for a day around town...

I'm excluding my F 50 f1.4, which might be the obvious choice for my K-1, because it'll soon be on the market.


My DA 70mm f2.4 is a lovely lens (even on full frame) but it's a little too tight to be an "only" lens. I have high hopes for the FA 43mm f1.9 Ltd that is waiting for me in Florida, but for now I would probably have to pick my DA 35mm f2.8 Ltd. I think I have the same answer for both my K-5 and my K-1 Mark II, though the DA 35 does have some significant vignetting on the K-1...

I wish I had known about this a couple of years ago! I lived in Westchester and would have made a point of visiting.

A number of years ago (er, well, maybe a large number...) I took advantage of an opportunity to volunteer to work on restoration of the B-29 Superfortress called Fifi at Boeing Field in Seattle. I built some wire bundles for some communications equipment and cleaned wheel wells with MEK. Cool experience.
