k3: Too sharp?
Oct 8, 2013

Here's the link to the Ricoh sites sample images from the K3.

Is it just me, or is this camera just too sharp for portraits? I mean, I zoomed in to check eye focus and got a whole lot of mustache and beard from the poor female model, who, I imagine, probably didn't expect to to be so intimately examined.

I can imagine this being great for shots blowing up huge murals of the moon or landscapes or bug macros and such, but for people portraits it's just a little too much for me. Maybe they should have used the AA filter despite it not being intended for such purposes.
