Sharp? Really?

I dunno but that pencil is not at all sharp...just look at the tip?  No way it's in need of significant sharpening for sure.  

Ohhhhhh, wait, you mean the PHOTO...well, yeah that's beyond sharp...

Great shot Dean...

Re: Sharpen Up

Dean - Interesting shot.  Very sharp.  I just received my K-5IIs late yesterday.  Have not even had the chance to look at it yet since I am trying to dig us out of the worst winter storm of the season.  Lots of snow and high winds make it difficult to plow.  Just part of the fun of living in Michigan!

Thanks for posting.

Re: Sharpen Up

Hi Jim snow looks wonderful but I'm sure it is a real inconvenience, you'll be able to do some serious snow flake shots!

Re: Sharpen Up

Man, Dean, nobody needs to tell YOU to "get the lead out!" You got it out and got it so sharp it can cut diamonds, even though it looks dull.

Great job. Looks like I'm gonna have to break down and get a K-5IIs, after all, assuming the sale's still going.
