Hi guys because the weather has been dreadful haven’t been able totest the camera fully but indoor shots hand held with the Zeiss 35mmf2 are superb and exactly were i focused its like having a new camera
So a big thanks goes to john Pye technical for calibrating the camera
I have so many cameras and lenses that i have now reevaluated things some lenses i will never sell as they are ultra rare but my cameras have been interesting fugi gfx 100s i am selling to my friend with all the fugi lenses at first i liked the camera but the ergonomics for me i wasn’t keen on
Nikon z7 with some of my Minolta lenses and Yashica lenses is really good but one problem i have is evf eye strain and the same with the fugi i don’t really need to keep them so both are going
This may surprise some people but there just not for me hasselblad 907x i am keeping as the colour reproduction is amazing i managed to get all the Zeiss zkmount lenses of a friend in japan so im now happy i have the full collection for Pentax Nikon d850 i also am keeping as i like the optical viewfinder ergonomics and wildlife lenses
But for some reason i have this love affair with Pentax and i am keeping my k-1 and nearly bought another k1-mk2 but because of the magenta cast and i decided just to wait for now i have far to many things
I don’t know if any other members have the mirroless cameras but the evf for me is a no go when i think about it an organic light emitting diode 1 inch away from your eye cant be good the one think i loved about the gfx and the z7 was older glass and mf but now my k-1 is calibrated im super impressed at how good this camera is and to be honest my favourite lenses are the 31mm Ltd the 43mm Ltd and the 77mm Ltd i also converted my contax collection with leitex adapter but will end up selling them as i know have the full set of zk
at the end of the day having all this gear makes no difference i need to get out there and start capturing those moments
I'm glad Pentax haven’t gone mirroless as the evf for me and my eyes give me dreadful headaches
Ive compared the k-1with pixel shift vs gfx and hasselblad and to me the pixel shift images have that fine edge detail that the other cameras haven’t got yes gfx is medium format to an extent but field of view isn’tthe end of the world for the money the Pentax k-1 is incredible
i am very lucky to be able to own all these cameras but at the end of the day taking photos is what counts

sorry for late reply basically the 35m has front focus problem with the pentax k-1 -10 in af fine tune isnt enough but in debug mode 130um is razer sharp and i do mean razor sharp the difference is night and day

the only problem is i can be bothered with debug mode and leaving the sd card door open and having to remember each setting the lenses so i will either get the lens and camera recalibrated i think debud mode is good to see if you have a problem but i find the battery drains a little bit quicker

Yes i have calibrated it its at 130um which is -13
But pentax only allow -10 or +10 nikon and canon
Allow -20 and +20 if pentax allowed this in there
Cameras they would sell more i think..my lenses front
Focus past -10...the difference now is amazing
The zeiss is razer sharp so the debug mode does work

i went into the debug because all my lenses are front focusing never had this problem with my nikon or canon so it has dissapointed me a bit as i love the pentax k-1 and pixel shift its when i am hand holding i do everything correct high shutter speed steady hand Sr ON .but front focus on zeiss pentax ltd lenses really annoying

when i rang up service in the uk they said just send the camera in and they can recalibrate it

Hi guys i worked it out i decided to give the debug mode a try Pentaxk-1 1.53 firmware and when i changed the um settings the focus went crazy but the good news is i have changed some of them to different um settings and they focus better now than they ever did pin point accurate im finding my way around the debug im just hoping i can save each fine tune adjustment for each lens
the difference the debug setting for fine tuning lenses is incrediable ill do further tests tommorow in good light

Hi guys k-1 driving me mad Ive got a fair few lenses so have started to test them and a lot of them have either front focus or back focus problems anyway today i tried my Zeiss 25mm f2.8 Pentax version of the lens and noticed it front focused so i got my chart up and when i held the AF button to get green hexagon to light up on the chart it was out of focus but when i moved the focus ring to wear my eyes thought it was sharp it was sharp
Do you think this could be a camera calibration problems
When the green hexagon was still it to my eyes it still wasn’t in focus more blurry a slight move of the focus ring and it was sharp

allso this was on a tripod via the view finder not live view so it was steady
