Vanguard Up-Rise II 38 bag: what is this?

Hi Paul, I also live in Melbourne and I almost got exactly the same bag for Christmas gift from my wife as well...
then I felt it's a bit too heavy and finally got a lighter and cheaper Manfrotto bag: Manfrotto NX Messenger Bag | Ted's Cameras, though quality is not as good as your Vanguard bag
Enjoy!

Hi Barry, could you please give your opinion on the Laowa 15mm? I'm thinking about this lens, too.

New wide angle prime lens Laowa 12mm f2.8, or Irix 15mm f4 for K-1?

Thanks Sandy for your tips. We will stay two nights in Alice Spring, and will check it out the places you mentioned.
DA55-300 works quite well with K-1. It is indeed a great travel lens. DA*300 is better but I have to leave it at home to travel light.

Thanks to you all for your advice..The Laowa 12mm is announced and won't be available till October. and its not cheap~US$1000. Irix is in total silence mode...
So I'll just take my DFA24-70 (heavy!) and 55-300 to Uluru. Sandy, this is my first trip to NT. Exciting!

Rising small companies are making K-mount lens:
Irix 15mm f2.4
Laowa, 85mm, 60mm and 12mm f2.8
Kerlee 35mm f1.2

I'm looking forward to a wide angle prime from these companies. Irix 15mm or Laowa 12mm....

Hi all, after a close examination again, I find that two images out of 101 taken with K1+DFA 28-105 lens at 1/100s have some double image blur...Too bad it's there! Sorry I should have be more careful before I posted previous comment.

Hi all, I've checked in Lightroom my 250+ photos that have shutter speed between 1/80 - 1/160. None of them have motion blur or double image. I do not think this is a common problem.

Two new wide angle prime lenses are coming in a few days/weeks:

Laowa Zero-D 12mm f/2.8 distortion-free lens: http://photorumors.com/2016/07/24/laowa-zero-d-12mm-f2-8-distortion-free-len...ced-next-week/ The 'distortion-free' feature of the Laowa lens is a reality according to this review:

http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/reviews/lenses/laowa_12mm_f2-8.html

Irix 15mm f2.4: Irix. Prepare for more. Looks nice on their website.

I cannot wait to get one of these for my coming trip to Uluru (Ayers Rock) in late August. Night sky there should be perfect for shooting stars...which one should I order? Decision....decision....though none of them are available to order yet.

Pentax 24-70 vs 28-105
Posted By David L

Hi, the closest focus distance at 105 mm end I got is around 28 cm (distance between the object and the front of the lens without hood).
I have both the 24-70 and 28-105. at aperture f5-f11 they are both good and I cannot tell the difference. The 28-105 is so much lighter therefore better for travel, but the 24-70 can do f2.8, and has nicer bokeh.

The 24-70mm is huge and heavy; 16-85mm is relatively small and light - great for travel/hiking...

Thanks Wizofoz! I went to Kirks this afternoon and grabbed one, after I canceled my pre-order from Ted's at Knox - they told me ETA time of June...
Paul at KirKs told me that now only one unit left in his store. So be quick!

Unfortunately I didn't order from them. I order from Ted's and no news from them yet.

This is reply I got from Pentax Australia Facebook page 20 min ago: "At this stage we are waiting for shipment to land - the pre-ordered units are the priority and will be shipped chronologically from first order"
At least the messages from CRK/Pentax Aus are consistent today...
