I have only bought one new "modern" lens since acquiring the K1 in November and that is the DFA 24-70 2.8 which I think is a terrific lens. Indeed i have sold my DA*16-50 and FA 24-90 to help raise...

A Waddon Swan

Thanks Gary, the Waddon Swan was playing ball that day and the light was bright but with some cloud cover, which helped keep contrast manageable.

A cheap, but effective reflector

Cheap, effective and a bit smelly! .....that seems to be the agreed consensus here :lol: It certainly has brought a surprising amount of light onto the flower, and no batteries required .

Wanted: Good Samyang 14mm f2.8

I made the painful decision to sell my Pentax 15-30 partly because I've been tending to use it like a prime at 15mm and the 24-70 covers much of the rest of the range. I've already got the Lee S...

SDM Failure strikes again

After some posts last year I'm now convinced the issue does not lie with the SDM Motor in these lenses. I strongly suspect it points to a capacitor (or capacitors) on the circuit board, which need...

Second ever wedding (first with K-1)

Great set of images and well executed. You seem to have a talent for weddings which I can imagine are stressful. Keep up the great work Phil :D

Astrophotography with the K-3

It was really hard to get the noise level down and still preserve the dust clouds from what I can remember. I had other versions that had more punchy blacks but I ultimately preferred this version.
