I wasn't trying to impress you. It is data. It is what is is.

Actually if you ignore that bottom left corner I would call your results impressive.

The edge drop of at the range you were shooting at I suspect falls into field curvature (it not a macro after all) and as such is itself quite pleasant especially for portraiture.

And the Pentax delivers its contrast/resolution with aplomb.


My wife just measured. The end of the lens was 1.4 m from the card. I would redo the photo, but have lost the sunlight. I am concerned about that left corner, though, and eventually want to determine if that OOF is reproducible. I am going to drop out now. I do not want to be accused of hijacking the thread. I was just trying to be helpful.
