  • Raj, Those two programs are my most used plugins for PS6.  There are other programs that are as effective but for me those two are a simple easy to use and see the visual process at completion. ...
  • Raj, I am attaching the photo.  No changes were made other than Focus Magic and Neat Image. These were done in Photoshop 6 in seperate layers and combined. Mike
  • I really enjoyed #2.  I ran the print though PS6 an applied a layer of Focus Magic and Neat Image to the photo and it removed all the blotches in the sky and sharpened the image without haloes. I ...
  • This is not the asm version of the lens but I sure like the 1st few sample shots on the way home from picking up the lens. the EXIF identifies the lens as the Pentax 28-105 but it is a Tamron ...
  • Sorry folks ignore this post it should have been in pentax forum.  I had too many tabs opened and it the wrong button. It took longer than the 5 min and dpreview would not let me remove it. What ...

  • My very 1st SLR was the Spotmatic in 1964 while stationed in Japan, and it still is my favorite.  The spotmatic replaced my Petri 7s rangefinder camera and I knew I had arrived as a proud owner of ...
  • I have it currently set on 70, but I tried at 135 and at 200 it did not seem to make any difference as far as focus and f stop and shutter speed were concerned.  The focus seems spot on the ...
  • Just arrived and did a few test photos in the yard today but this lens is a keeper.  It is much better in all aspects compared to the 50-200WR Pentax lens.  A few test shots included and all were ...
  • Josh, Well done and welcome to Pentax land.  You did a excellent job on composition and exposure. Mike
  • Replied in Bottom Line
    Great advice David, I took my lens and K-50 to an old railroad siding and marked a tie with chalk  near one end and shot it was easy to tell where the focus point was located on the tie and the ...
  • I set my k-50 on a tripod an shot every lens from - 4 to +4 then viewed the results on my Mac.  I selected  the best setting for each lens and then attached each lens and set the correct  setting ...
  • Thanks for the comments! I should have added this to the original post, it is important to use the Auto Focus Fine Adjustment for each of your lens.  I used this adjustment on my kit lens and the ...
  • These three were taken with the K-50 and the 18-55 WR kit lens. I really like this lens on my K-50 it seem to capture exactly what my 75 year old eyes are seeing at the time of shooting. Comments ...
  • Please don't complain about any lens unless you have used the auto focus fine adjustment built into the camera. My 18-55 WR kit is tack sharp at a -3 setting. I used the tripod and shot from a -4 ...
  • Rick, Nice set of B&W with the k-50 and kit lens.  I love my same setup the WR kit lens is tack sharp across the lens and the k-50 is one of the finest camera I have owned in my 75+ years including ...
  • I have replaced the eye piece and the focus screen with the following two items. I replaced the viewfinder with the (Pentax O-ME53 Magnifying Eye Piece). and replaced my focusing screen with the ...
  • Thanks for the answer to my question. Mike
  • will the Pentax lens hood for the 50-200WR lens fit the 18-55 kit lens also. The hood that comes with the 50-200 is: (Lens Hood PH-RBD49), and it looks very much the same as the standard kit hood. ...
  • Very Well done series - My favorite is the last shot of the owl looking toward the camera. It would make a nice tight crop mounted and hung in a den. Mike
