K3 - Need help to get sharp image
5 months ago

I am having problems getting a sharp image from the K3. I traded-in my K5IIs about three weeks ago, but have yet to shoot what I would consider a sharp image.

I shoot birds with a DA*300 and have had great success with K7 and K5IIs.

I have tried various focus modes, check the front/back focus which seems to be OK but so far none of my shoots have been what I consider sharp. The following two images show the full frame and a 100% crop, which I think should be sharper than this? Or is this what I should expect from this camera?

The full frame

I would welcome any comments or suggestions about testing the camera to see if I have a ‘dud’.

Thanks

Tony
