I think MZS does it very well.
Contax G2 as well.

I have been blown away by these images that are coming out of K1. But I have to ask - is it mostly in my head or are they really so noticeably better than K3-produced images? I am NOT trying to start another pointless debate, it's just that I know that I am easily influenced by my expectations, visually speaking. For example, once I was looking at B&W images from a recent digital Leica with Summicorn 35/2 and they took my breath away. But in my gut I knew I could get same effect with several other body/lens combos. I no longer own any digital Leicas but I do own and love Pentax gear and and am soooooo tempted to get the K1 body and seeing the images in this thread is killing me.. I am not sure I can resists. So, is it just my biased brain or do these images (scaled as they are for online viewing) really do show the objective superiority of K1 for landscape and portraits? Please don't yell at me, I mean every word.

One of the sexiest lenses I've ever owned.
With the Pentax 1.7x TC it auto-focused with minimal pre-focus effort.

Seriously? The 1000 little shiny plastic "diamonds" staring out from the lens are way too loud for me. With that thing hanging off your chest all you need a fur coat and a golden tooth to complete that pimp look .. :D:D:D

Thank you for the link to your video, I enjoyed it, and I have to say, it's always a bit of a shock for me to hear a pretty woman swear with an Australian accent, no joke.

Thank you, sergysergy, for asking me to test the autoexposure function on this body, I learned something new while doing this. I never actually had the time to use this camera, bought it entirely for its looks. But now I've read the manual and played with it with the right lens - wow, this little beast is really advanced!

Lots of "Thumbs Up" style grips out there for "numbered" GR "X" models but no one is selling one for the plain old Ricoh GR (16MP, f/2.8, 2013) that I can find.


(credit: pentaxrumors.com)

I am hoping that at least one of those would fit my GR.. would appreciate some advice.

Thank you, PiDicus Rex, for the advice! Especially about the highlights, I didn't hear that before when trolling for tips all over Youtube. There I was inspired a bit by this














You Tube




I would love to see the feature you created but somehow the IMDb site doesn't want to show it, I can't get past movie info (I can view other films there). I wonder if it has to with geographic regions.

My BMPCC kit so far includes these accessories - a cage, a "regular" K mount adapter (no focus ring that I can see), the "Fotasy DA-M4/3" adapter (it has a focus ring), and the dedicated Metabones EF mount adapter that is supposed to reduce the crop factor and increase lens speeds. For that last mount, I ordered the Canon 28-135 IS lens.



Also planning to get a decent external battery + adapter, something like this one I think; I do want to keep the whole rig as small as possible though..



I am taking time off this coming week just to try this rig out.. next step is a right-sixed gimbal and a good audio recorder, but audio-wise I have near ZERO idea of what I am doing.. this should be exciting :eek:

Thank you for the tip, I will definitely give this adapter a try. Did you find any of the DA lenses giving a particularly pleasing look on the BMPCC4K?

Howdy, I recently acquired the original Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and am in the process of getting some lenses to use with it. I wonder if anyone on this forum has used any Pentax lenses on one of the Blackmagic pocket cameras and would be willing to share their thoughts.

Here is the camera
