First shoot with the Pentax K1
First photo taken with the new Pentax K1 and 24-70 dfa lens. Cappella della Madonna di Vitaleta, San Quirico D'Orcia. I am amazed so far by the dynamic range having loaded the photo into lightroom. The tilt screen absolutely excellent and essential in landscape photography. I never felt I had to bend down and therefor assisted in my final composition. Unfortunately the AF did not perform to my needs in low light conditions, so i was forced to use my head torch to light up the foreground to assist in focus. Also to note, apart from the splendid resolution, is the sharpness of the lens. Having read the mixed reviews I was expecting a lot less, but i am very impressed by the results. I really wanted to push the K1 to its limits on this visit to Val D'Orcia this week, and although the weather wasn't as dramatic as I would have preferred I still managed to put the combo under some challenging conditions.
Looking forward to analising further photos taken on this trip to Val D'Orcia and performing a better judgement for a more in depth review of the camera and lens.
