disappointed with k5, could use some help
Dec 23, 2011

So, I sold out of Sony, which I liked, but was bulky (A700 and high end lenses) and bought a k5 with some very nice primes (31, 43, 77, 200, zeiss 50). I can't seem to get a good shot indoors (blew a ton of pics where the autofocus was off)...blew a few from focus problems outside...and the color is really pretty lousy compared with what I'm used to with the Sony.

Granted, I haven't read the manual yet...but I can't figure out why the pictures are so bad. Is there a garbage setting that I can turn off? I've read so many good things about this camera, I'm thinking I must be missing something...

Any thoughts?

No, this isn't a troll post...I'm honestly trying to get this camera to work for me...
