Pentax K200D vs. Nikon D60

Camera settings:

  • Pentax K200D: Pentax FA 50 mm F1.4 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters, Self-Timer
     
  • Nikon D60: Nikkor 50 mm F1.8 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters, Self-Timer
Pentax K200D
Nikon D60

4.0 MB JPEG (3872 x 2592)
3.5 MB JPEG (3872 x 2592)

At print or on-screen viewing size you won't see much difference between these images but again the K200D is being slightly let down by its overambitious sharpening algorithms. The Nikon strikes a much better balance between sharpness and image artifacts and produces a slightly softer but also much cleaner image.
