In reply to Richard Pavek, 6 months ago

I Posted some KF's last week when I went outto test some lenses and EC's here are a few that I either glanced over or had to do some works on. I had a problem with the Pied King fisher with blown highlights due to the black and very bright whites. CPA blew the highlights and spot either overexposed of really blew the highlights. This is not a E-5 problem all the other people I talk to have the same problem. Anyway I used RawTherapee to recover the highlights. Its a grat package but a bit unstable on my system.

All of these images are crops. I was amazed at the resolution on both of these lenses as  lot of these crops are 100% I.E. a 1:! pixel crop. A few are actually enlarged I.E. 800 unscaled to 1024. One thing I have noticed with the SHG lenses is the inclination to overexpose a bit.

Any way here they are. Some are not that great but shown for interest sake. These where mostly taken with the 90-250 and the EC14 as I wanted to really run this combo though its paces. The bigma took its normal great pictures. I was happy with the 90-250.

This is actually my favorite of the whole bunch. And its not a KF.
