Re: Hey there! (KP + Tamron 17-50)

Nice, I like it.  However the 17-50 at 45mm and f5.6 should be much sharper.  I have the K3 and Tamron 17-50; not that dissimilar from you.  If that bird is about 15 feet away you should have roughly about a 4 ft in front and 4 ft behind the bird as a DOF.  And at 45 mm and f5.6 the Tamron 17-50 performs about as good as it gets right across the frame.  The feathers are not as sharp as the lens and camera can do.

You may wish to double check the micro focus adjust.   Adjust as required.  If this was a SOOC jpeg then you might wish to double check the noise setting - noise reduction shouldn't be required for ISO 100 and at this EV (12.5), and double check to see if the anti alias was off - I recommend off unless you are shooting something than will obviously produce moire (like a finely checked piece of clothing or an intricate repeating background.)
