It's nearly 2am so the video must wait. That first image really hits you between the eyes - it's magnificent.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Excellent images Geoff, love the light and drama. I think the long exposure ones are less interesting compared with the others but then you were there to see the options and I wasn’t! It looks like you were part of a small group, was that an organised tour you booked or just a group of friends?

I was also intrigued by the DA* 60-250 lens on the K1, the results look fantastic but was there any vignetting or unsharp edges or did you just go crop mode? I am wondering how it would compare with the new FA 70-210.

Thanks Rob, my time on flickr I have made some good photography friends and we meetup throughout the year to photograph stuff we are a group of 6 and this is our 2nd annual visit to Skye, next year think we are looking at Mull or Harris/Lewis maybe even the west coast of Ireland which would be my personal choice. We club together and get an Air B&B for the week car/food share so it works really well.

Regards your question about the 60-250 on the K-1 Take a look at this, top row of images illustrate the vignette that's apparent using the lens on the K1

I found it a little too much for my personal tastes and was having to crop images aggressively so, I decided to do the baffle mod and I'm more than pleased with the results (bottom row). As for the 70-210 if I was looking for a 70/200 lens right now, I think the additional weather sealing and comparable image quality the new lens delivers, the 70-210 would be my choice also you dont wouldnt have to dick around with the internals of the lens.

Regards
Geoff

The light and composition of the first image are wonderful, Geoff. The snowy mountain is very much present, yet seems to be trying to hunch down into the shadows...
The second image has a beautiful painterly quality to it (the rendering of the sky and mountains especially), and the bit of appearing/disappearing wall in the bottom right is an intriguing punctum.

There's a thread on here that I made where I showed the bellows coming out and how I modded mine. My Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 is relegated to back up camera bag and the Pentax DA 60-250mm is now in the bag permanently for use on the K1.

Super light in all of these Geoff... my own favourite would be the second... it has a lovely softness to it, but a super set all round...

Best
