The DR of this baby still blows me away + the PP headroom is incredible!

Thanks guys, the K5 really makes it easy to shoot into light conditions that would trip up a lot of cameras. And what you don't get you can easily recover with some PP.

I like shooting into the sun with the K-5. I love the combination of blown highlights and the bringing up of a clean fill light because the K-5 has the DR to handle it!! - Artistic!

Did a little night shooting late last night in DC, not a good night for me - was able to pull off some ok ones of abe although my framing really sucked and had to crop them somewhat, had a hard time at tj's memorial trying to get a different perspective with the 8mm inside the dome - lens flare and bad framing got me there, will evaluate and get back to tj's memorial soon and try to grab some good ones. All shot with the 8mm FE except the one of abe, shot with the 55mm Tak:

Abe is a little hot in both, but the other two images are really nice. I like the perspective and the tones you captured there quite a bit.
