    I have been ignoring the K-5, pretty much, since getting the GRD3. I was looking in PF at the 15mm thread and thinking that I had really not done much with my 15 for ages, so I wandered out this morning and got that sorted PDQ. Here's some then, from then.

    And now, I'm besotted with my DSLR all over again.

    Than you, Rich. I've never got a starburst from the DA15, managed it from the FA43, this was a first for me. Or, rather, a second, there was another from earlier which I haven't posted (yet).

    The starburst is pretty cool. My difficulty with the DA15 was getting it to focus properly. After trying all sorts of micro adjustments, I finally returned it.

    I seem to be having focus issues with my FA43 on the K-5 but I have not yet looked into the method for correcting focus on individual lenses. It was fine on the K-r but has been a bit of a pest on the K-5. I really must do something about it.
