Some strange shots with the K5 IIs

These were shot in a rather strange antique store near Dallas, Texas.
K5 IIs and the DA 35mm macro ISO 1600 to 3200 It was very, very dark in this warehouse.



I'm not sure what this glass thing is.. maybe a vase or part of a light fixture of some kind.. really could not tell.



I found the colors to be interesting.. this is military footwear of some kind.. from India.



I found a bunch of shells in a box and thought it might make a nice monochrome.



In the very back corner of the warehouse there was an old weathered door with a crucifix hanging on it.. a bit of light coming in from a window. ISO 1600.



The shot below was taken in the darkest part of the warehouse.. the camera actually "saw" more than I could see with my Mark I Eyeball. 1/13s at ISO 3200. Handheld shot which could have been sharper. This is the fabled Typewriter Graveyard.



And a couple from the rail-yard in Grapevine, Texas.

Those shoes look really great. I mean, it looks like a painting, forgot what movement. But the colors, and lines just flow. Not to mention retention of detail.

I did the right thing by upgrading to the K5 IIs..

Two weeks into using the K5 IIs and I am convinced that my upgrade to this new version of the K5 was worth it. The fine detail that I am getting from this camera is just what I was looking for. I am a happy camper.. now if my DA* 16-50mm will just return from CRIS I will be a very happy camper.

Here is another low light shot of an old register using the DA 35mm

Great detail, Jim!
I thought so as well. I believe this was shot at ISO 1600 or 3200.. not sure, don't have the original file with me at the office. I am very pleased with what is coming out of the IIs.
Thanks for looking and commenting.

A great series of shots. The only thing missing in that first one is Norman Bates talking to Mother.

Very inspiring, some wonderful shots to get me out there when it stops being dark or grey.

I'm still getting used to my K5ii, quite different to what I'm used to.

K5 IIs with the much maligned WR 18-135 Kit Lens

I visited a construction site today and one of the workers had just finished spray painting some drywall. He had just taken off his respirator and I asked him if I might take his photograph. He agreed.

By the way, this was taken with the much maligned Kit Lens WR 18-135mm Looks pretty good to me.. maybe the lack of the AA filter on the K5 IIs is working for this lens rather than against it.

awesome pictures, I recently bought a K5 IIs and I am really happy with the results.

I am looking for a 1.7x teleconverter, the legendary pentax TC plus a good 300 or 400 or even the 500.

anyone have any picture with that combo?
regards

Ok, my poor cat is sick of me chasing it around. come on summer!

Here is a shot with my K5iis and my new DA *50-135mm.
3200 ISO, 1/30 sec F 6.3 around 110mm focal length
unbelieveable considering my k10 couldn't even pull off a shot like this I don't think this lens will ever come off!
indoors as well



wish I could make it bigger but photobucket seems to be limiting it lately

thanks for looking
