  • Replied in Noise
    In this image the focal length used was 189mm so, rather than using "excessive cropping" which magnifies the noise, you could have magnified the scene nearly 60% more by zooming to 300mm. Philip
  • It could also be that the newer sensor, processor(s), and software (firmware) of the K-1 combine to produce improved image quality compared with those of the K-5 II. Philip
  • I agree, and that lens is a pleasure to use. Philip
  • Replied in K5IIS pics
    I agree with Suse's choice, but perhaps cropped closer to the frame of the door mirror to remove most of the bright spots in the surroundings. Philip
  • He looks quite interested in  you - did you have some food for him?  The photo seems over-exposed overall, which has resulted in loss of feather detail on the gull's head.  It appears to be good ...
  • It seems reasonable to assume that the next K-3 will have better ISO performance than the current version, so low light could be a lesser problem. So perhaps you would consider something outside ...

  • Peter, I hope you will disregard these quoted comments as they are not the case, and in my view they come across as patronising and arrogant. In the local camera club everyone takes photography ...
  • Personally I cannot understand why any Pentax user would want to get rid of any Pentax Limited lens, unless perhaps to replace an SMC version with an HD version. Philip
  • Yes - it works like the fridge door. A good zoom for the K-70, in the standard to short tele range, is the new D-FA 28-105 - it's not too big and it has impressive image quality across the APS-C frame.
  • If you are asking this because you are not too keen on post-processing in computer software, then replies like the previous two are not particularly helpful.  Shooting in JPEG format is a ...
