k20d and Pentax DA* 50-135

Just got the new lens, and I was excited to see how how it would do. I took some shots outside, and I am amazed at the detail seen when used on the k20d. I posted a few pics here. Look at the "original" size to see full detail. On the pic with the cell tower, I think I can see the circuit connections.

Congratulations on the lens! I can't wait to get mine. Of course, I only have the K200D and not the K20D, but I'm expecting good things to result from the lens.

Thanks! I am posting some shots with the k10d in the same link for those interested. (Wish I could edit the thread title)

Awesome, thanks for the comparisons.

Maybe it's just me, but the K10D pictures actually look more clear than the K20D. Do you have different settings enabled on the cameras, are they hand-held shots, etc?

Just curious. They all look great when pixel peeping, but for some reason the K10D pics to me look a bit more contrasty and slightly clearer. An example -- The bricks on the fireplace in the house shot.

Interesting obervation. Both are hand held, and both are RAW conversions at highest quality and "natural" tone.

I would be interested in others opinions on this. I have always noticed that my k10d pictures have a slight green tint to them. Note the sky in the picture. The k20d is blue, and the k10d has that slight green tint. It is subtle. The pictures from the k20d are always a little closer to what my eye saw. Is it possible that the slight green tint makes the color on those gray/yellow bricks appear to stand out more?

cputeq,
I just noticed, one way to see the resolution improvement of the k20d is to notice that you can actually read the printing on the tires of the truck.
