  • Replied in FA Lens K/PK?
    Saying a lens is a K/PK lens is basically saying, it's a lens that fits a modern Pentax SLR.  That is, anything you can physically fit onto a DSLR without an adapter.  As opposed to screwmount, or...

  • It's really impossible to say if there is a probkem without seeing a sample image you are not happy with.  But I'm going to guess it's a matter of expectations.  Have you used a DSLR before?  Do...

  • Replied in HD DA 15
    Not shake - it's the much shallow DOF of a DSLR compared to a P&S.  The plane of focus is perfectly sharp as far as can be seen from the posted images; but the portions of the image nearer the...
  • Definitely post images you are not happy with.  My guess is that it will turn out to be a simple matter of your not having controlled where the camera focuses, so the specific part of the picture...
  • FWIW, I still lurk some, posting only *very* occasionally. As people who do remember me may recall, I'm a musician.  As in, that's what I do for a living - teaching more so than performing these...
  • If there were images there providing what I asked for, I didn't see them.  But I can tell at least you aren't a complete noob :-) Marc Sabatella
  • I say, post some images traken under controlled circumstances you are not happy with, and explain why.  It's hard to tell if perhaps you just have unreasonable expecations, or maybe don't...
  • It's the *exact* same lens optically.  So what you're seeing is either sample variation or testing variation.  And given that Pentax (or any camera company) spends millions on manufacturing...
