K10D + 18-55 Never, ever sharp!!!
Aug 10, 2010

I´ve had the K10D for about 3 years. I've used it with the regular 18-55 and a Tamron 70-300. I get some nice results with the Tammy, but the 18-55 is just horrible. I never ever have gotten a really sharp photo. Some are better than others, but never completly sharp.

Until now I've been living with it, pushing the unsharp mask as far as I can, but this summer I went on a trip and took plenty of street photography mainly with in AV in f8. Almost all of them were not at all sharp. Some were even blurred, especially if there was movement (at speeds like 1/400 there should be no blur when taking pictures of peolple riding bikes and so).

So, I'm really fed up with this lack of quality. I don't know if its the lens or the camera. I really like the feel of the K10D but I'm considering moving on to Nikon or Canon.
Someone else has this problem?
