DFA* 70-200 mm f/2.8 VS HD DA 16-85 mm f/3.5-5.6 at 85 mm FL : IT'S A TIE.

I took the same exact picture first with a DFA* 70-200 mm f/2.8 (upper image), then with an HD DA 16-85 mm f/3.5-5.6 (lower image) on a 26 Mpx Pentax K3 III.

RESULT : IT'S A TIE
Both images are practically indistinguishable,
the HD DA 16-85 mm seems a little warmer.

Today's special : No more ice on the Saint Lawrence and huge discharge. Pentax K3 III + HD DA 16-85 mm ED @ f/13 and 16 mm FL.

With the K3, I used to bracket my exposures +1, 0 and -1 stop. With the new K3 III, all I need is to bracket -1 and 0 and I will get a perfect exposure. A +1 bracket will really degrade the image too much.
