Two shots from the garden this afternoon ...
K1 and the "good old" Panagor 90mm f2.8 Macro PMC (forget the EXIf ... I selected 85mm focal length for the SR as there is no 90mm in the menue)

Yes, it seems that at least in the virtual domain people get excited and/or upset about everything.
Well, in this case Pentax is offering for free an additional option which may be usefull for some ... but they are not taking away anything from anybody. We still have what we have paid for and what we have (hopefully) enjoyed so far.
No reason at all to get upset ....

But at least I had a few hours ... and the K1 with the SMC A 2.8/20mm

Absolutely no reason to apologize Ivan! Appreciate your posts in any thread:)

Thanks for your comment!
I got my Q7 together with the 02 and 06 zooms (bought is as an open box item at the BIC camera outlet in Tokyo).
Both are good lenses and the combination is very good if you want to travel light.
But the 01 prime is a much better lens ... if you are willing to "zoom with your feet":).
I guess that around 70% of my Q7 shots are taken with the 01 lens.

Hi Ivan,
Are you sure this are "Q" shots:)? EXIF says shot with the K1 ...
Nice rendering of the Tak by the way.

Sigma 70mm Macro vs Tamron 90mm Macro

You can't go wrong with either one ...
It is more a matter of personal taste, I think. On APSC for me the 90mm might be a little "long", as I tend to use the Tamron also as a "general purpose" lens on my K1.

Aftermarket K-1 Focusing Screens: metering impacts?
Posted By volley

These impatient young folks :lol::lol:

I'm using the Canon S-Type screen from fosussingscreen.com in my K1 since about 18 month or so.
Obviously the improved hit rate with manual focussing lenses i(which I use a lot) was the main reason to change the screen. And yes, some careful shimming of the screen is necessary, but that should not be a surprise for anyone.
I am very satisfied with the improvements for MF.

I have not noticed any inconsistant behaviour regarding measurement/exposure ( I had this with some cheap replacement screen in my K3). My impression is that mostly I need another -1/3 exposure compensation. With the original screen I mostly used -1/3 now it is -2/3. But if this is just my imagination is hard to tell. As I am shooting RAW only and at least 80% with fully manual settings this is no issue for me. And as long as exposure measurement is predictable and consistant I'm fine.

Over the years I have been to Tokyo maybe 30 times or more, always for work.
Sometimes I stayed over the weekend and enjoyed walking with my camera through this great city and take some shops ... or buy some new Pentax stuff:lol:

Yes, I know, Exif says 85mm . But you can't select 90mm in the menue:)
