For Pentax's New full flame camera, the puller lineup of changeable lenses is problem. Though, it is pleasure to check and fine the lens for APS-C format which is useful on full frame mount.
In my collection, there are two lenses that is effective for new camera.
One is smc DA 12-24mm F4ED AL, that can be used on between 18mm to 24 mm escaping interference by image circle. another is HD DA 20-24mm F2.8-4ED Limited DC WR, on between 28mm to 40mm. I have not expect using them on full frame.

The new single-lens reflex camera with K mount have been released on April. The new model is so rare that there is no sample on shop front and few stocks on online shop of Pentax. I have been able to look for the shop that could deliver this camera early and have clicked to order one. Then the article have come, the name of camera is "PENTAX K-1", produced by RICOH.
I have been waiting the full frame camera with K mount and did not upgrade my camera, though there were many release of new model made with APS-C sensor until today. Especially a low-pass filterless sensor make high-pesolution image, the system started with three previous generations, K-5Ⅱs. Now I can get the image-sensor which have both specifics, full frame and low-pass filterless.
For full size camera, it is matter that the maker produce few of lenses for full size image sensor. But don't worry, some of lenses for APS-C can make good image without aberration of brightness. In my case, I have some lenses which can use with Full frame. These focusing length are 28mm, 35mm, 43mm, 50mm, 85mm, 200mm. It is enough, I think!
For my first impression, most useful function is focusing. It becomes faster and higher accuracy.
It is effective not only for auto focusing but for manual focusing. It is easy to take a picture by manual focusing with the function of catch in focus. The shutter will be released automatically when the focus length is adjusted. Though, I can't try all functions.
In this season, I could have times of fishing, one reason is busy works and another is new baby are coming. So I should finish to this season at once, but I will be back soon!
At first of this year, environment around me are changing in various way. For example, new baby's coming, the charge of my job, and most big is the change of my company's management environment. These much variation was coming in a row.
On another side, there is no change matter for long time. I have known many trouts have been living in small stream in the forest. I have frequented there for a few years. There is small change but they are still alive.
The destination of my first fishing journey was Gamada river at opening day, March first.
Weather of the day was very cold and there was much snow on the road.
The world of snow was very beautiful but it was hard condition for fishing because of too cold and stiff wind.
Water level was a little higher and temperature was lower than the nominal condition.
On such condition, I could catch some fishes which were beautiful, even though they were not so big.
I stayed overnight at Howzan-so in which I enjoyed dinner and drinking with co-fihermen.
It was very funny and special time.
I went to fish rising trout at the last day of this season for trout fishing on river. Though the water was still high and I could not approach the favorite place, I could enjoy fishing another place where I tried fishing at first time.
I could enjoy fishing until very end of this season.
Still rainy days continued and I should fish with wet situations fishing again. But it will often make good condition for fishing, if it can escape water level becoming too high. Then I could get such chance by good luck.
I could catch these fishes by light tackle CIRCA 389 & CLICK Ⅱ, though tippet was 5X...
On this year, many typhoons came to Japan, so then I fished with rainy days at any time. Once time ago, I had stopped fishing when rain started to fall because I had not have enough rain gear. But new rainwear that I bought at early time of this year is very comfortable under rainy condition and I can continue to fish. Moreover my camera lens becomes waterproof type and I should not worry for wet.
But though my equipment increase water resistance, water levels of river become too high by long spell of rainy weather. I had no choice and should have gone to highland again.
Fishing condition was better and I caught more fishes than last trip. At the beginning, I thought it would take two hours for fishing through the short zone. But it have taken twice time actually. And I could not remember how many fishes I caught.
Many typhoons came to Japan this year and left much damage. Last one left much damage on east side of Japan. On the midland where I live, also much rain has fallen and almost rivers came up too high water revel.
On such bad condition I went to highland to fish. Around the river I selected, there was not so much rain and the water kept still low level. Few of rain would rather make good condition.
The season became fall on mountain and there were a lot of dinner for bear. On this area others have watched bears many time, even though I didn’t see at once.
Thin curtain of rain hid me form fish and therefor I could catch many fishes. The average size was not so large but their condition was very good. They were not nervous and take my fly docilely.
Small body but wild faces...
The average size fishes...
The biggest one that was over 1 feet.
Tomorrow is ...
