IMO, a matter of taste. You can fine tune both to do more natural.

On Pentax K-3 real-world samples gallery article (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

Conjure: The 18-135 is a very good zoom lens (at least from 25mm to 100mm) but it is not as sharp as a prime lens. As far as I know the test shots for the review will be taken with a sharp prime lens (DFA 50 macro?). And because Pentax/Recoh usualy includes some improvements (WB, AF) in the firmware updates, I have no problem to wait for the final review until the first firmware update.

The reds were the only weak point of my K-5. (If you know it you decrease the exposure to correct it in PP). It is still not perfect with the K-3 but it seems to be much better:

IMO the selection of the real-world samples is quite OK. The detail of some photos is really impressive: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/photos/2744933/imgp0422?inalbum=pentax-k-3-samples-gallery

Dear Nic, you know how much I like my pentax equipment. But maybe my English is not not good enough.
I do usually RAW with my K-5 and I did not intend to blame anyone. Pentax improved the reds.

On Tamron to develop 150-600mm F5-6.3 ultra-telephoto zoom article (193 comments in total)
In reply to:

Giklab: I bet that this doesn't come in Pentax mount because it will be released later as a DA lens.

I think the SMC PENTAX-DA 18-270mm F3.5-63 ED SDM is a rebadged Tamron

In reply to:

Will Edwards: It's not in my camera bag, but if in the city in the middle of the night or for sunrise shots, I carry a 9mm, and I know how to use it. If out in the woods, it's a 45mm. And I am not talking about camera lens.

This is the perfect camera for street photography. I cannot imagine that anybody would complain if you take a photo with these “tools”.

Also Leica does this but less consequently:
