    great set John. I find that fiddling around with manual focus and not having a camera up to my face makes it easier to shoot natural candids with relaxed expressions. But you need to skills to get the shot. And you nailed these.

    The K-01's focus peeking really amped my enthusiasm for MF lenses.

    Nice work, John. I've used my Sigma 30mm f/1.4 and DA 50mm f/1.8 for similar work on my K-01. The FA 43 would be nice.
