K5IIs/DA 12-24: Long Winter Ahead in Edmonton, Canada!
Nov 12, 2012

This is not a comparison of the K5IIs vs K5 or the K30.  I sold my K5 to get the K5IIs but have not made any direct comparisons to the K30, which is a great cam.  The K5IIs seems slightly sharper out of the camera but lets wait for the detailed reviews to quantify.

This is a sunrise from Edmonton, Canada taken wide open (f4) on the DA 12-24..  We have had 30-40 cm of snow in the past week and it was -10 deg when this shot was taken.  It looks like a long winter.

To be honest, the image size does not do that sensor any justice but it is a great picture!

It is not meant to be a pixel peeping excercise.

Edmonton, the Klondike gold rush...the universe of Jack London, wonderful and terrible. Dale, What a beautiful journey through time and space, in the memory, too, with this magic name, Edmonton. : The Call of the Wild.

And especially for a child of the Mediterranean Sea, a long time ago but it's like yesterday.

People can't just appreciate a good picture here anymore. Your job is to test the sensor. Testing first, picture taking second.

Nice shot - framing, color, perspective, etc. - it tells us about the coming winter.  I was last in Edmonton around 1975 in mid-winter when there was a Chinook.  We'd come from Regina where it was -40F and Edmonton was 60F - 100 degree difference in one day's drive!

Hi Pete:

Yes it was -10 deg and the K5 didn't miss a beat.

Congrats on the new camera!

Lucky you have some snow, it was around 18C here in Montreal today but it should get colder during the days to come.

I like the perspective you got on that shot!

And I thought it was cold here today. Your shot is a story that one can almost feel.

Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Spyros
