Hi Guys, few photos from today with the Sony and FA43 Ltd. Most shot wide open, all shot at 125th, the shot with the milk is iso 2500. Hopefully get a few tomorrow with the 31.

So much for the FA limiteds not being up the task of performing on digital FF. These look great.

+1!

I love n. 1! IMO is explains why so many are moving to FF. (Edit, to avoid misunderstandings: I mean photographers in general, not Pentaxians in particular)

I cannot help thinking that with the K3 Ricoh has released a camera that in average is better than most, but it is not the best in any particular field.

Thanks Damian,

I'd love to see some pictures taken with the 31mm at full aperture to see what bokeh it can produce on this camera please!

Hi Giorgio, no problems will get a few tomorrow, on one of my other lens (closer to the sensor) wide open (1.4) I've had some vignetting so will be interesting to see how 31 copes, though I'm not expecting any issues.

Thanks for the link, Damian. I'd love to see some images taken using old A or M lenses if you have any......

Hi Jonathan, I have a 35/2.8 A and a 50/1.4 M, both are with friends at the moment, I'll get back this week and get a few shots next weekend.

Those pics have an Amazing quality about them. It's not resolution as they're only 800px, there's just a certain something that make them stand out.

I'm not even sure whether it's just down to full frame either. My mate's FF Canon 5D can't come close to that.

Hmmmmm.
