Последните снимки от Потсдам и Виена са меки,нямат рязкост,което е неприятно....
Защо?
Only the out of focus areas are soft.

here is a crop of my Vienna pic. Its a handheld auto HDR as mentioned with the FA*85mm @f/2.2 ... i was quite surprised how well the automatic alignment of the HDR function works!!! And see the crop, I think its sharp enough for 2-star handheld HDR-JPG OOC

Please don't get me wrong - pictorially the shots presented here are lovely.
But my eyes are finding that the images have a certain softness about them?
Many of the photos are focused close with a wide aperture making for a very narrow to razor thin in-focus area. A photo forum such as this is going to be filled with people exploring the artistic aspect of photography and the bokeh of a lens. Any softness seen is entirely the usage of the lens.

Case in point, photographs that are stopped down: Take a look at any of the originals of IGP0354 -> IGP0336 in this album http://public.fotki.com/m8o/memorable_images/scenery/cityscapes/ and tell me they're 'soft'.

Here's some of mine

Pentax 16-50, ISO 6400


Vivitar 70-210, ISO 400


Vivitar 70-210, ISO 800


Tamron 18-250, ISO 800


Tamron 18-250, ISO 1600


Great shooting! You just try to tell my Squirrels that there is a resolution deficiency in that fine Squirrel Photo! They would laugh someone off the Forum if they did!
Best Regards!

Three shots from my K5.

#1 K5/ smc 4.8/80-200 MF lens



#2 K5/smc 4.5/80-200 mf lens



#3 k5/Da35mm ltd lens (Today's Temperature!)



Considering1 & #2 are taken with an old MF lens, and with my spectacles, the result was quite breathtaking IMHO.

IQ does not equal sharpness. These images are also absurdly sharp. Keep in mind we are looking at web-sized JPEGS... and please take this discussion elsewhere...

here is an appropriate dumping ground where you will find all the answers to your questions...

+1 Here is the crop of the photo that I've shared. The leaves of the cloth is even visible though this is not a macro photography. In such a big size photo if such sharpness is obtained, it's not possible to talk about softness.

Some great shots, right through, and good testimony to the sharpness etc of the K5.
Having read through this and the other thread, I have come to the conclusion, ogl and his doubting comments, are just a waste of time and space. My opinion, anyway.

I here the arguments and see the pics BUT how do they differ in any way from my FEW amateur pics in my pf gallery in terms of sharpness, color, etc - all taken with an ancient K10D?

I should avoid PF for a while. It's making it harder to resist my CBA.

This is just imho, but K-5 to me seem like it has superior light-to-dark transitions that make it pop in more ways than one. If you think the images are the same, then more power to you I do think K10 is one of the sharpest dslrs that there is, but the K-5 has that special quality that the K10 dont have.

On the other hand, I think K10 also produces way more filmlike (C41) images than K-5...

What Really Matters......
I brought Otis in to view these shots for his Professional Squirrel opinion. Not much else matters if a camera can't render a great Squirrel Shot, does it? He viewed all the shots here, and generally thought they were excellent, but when he got to the Squirrel on P.1 , he did think it was soft....and "cuddly"! He also thought that those thinking the K5 is deficient are in need of some serious counseling, a major eye examination, and a visit by his Squirrel Army. Otis is not much for BS....unless he is the provider, and wonders how this kind of insanity comes about in the human world? Me too!
Best Regards!
