Fantastic shot showing how ISO 5000 and the FA31 on the k-5IIs is just phenomenal. Looking at the picture at full size, the amount of detail available on the bottom lip of the cup and the fruits next to it are crazy well preserved, even with the high-ish ISO. Even more amazing is that leaf on the lower left side of the cup - you can see the pattern detail with no blur.
Amazing what it can do.... I think the 'S' denotes Steroid!

Nice photos!

I notice K5IIs is not ideal for close up portrait when using good lenses, too much details. :P

Of course there are always LR4.2 tools available.

the 16-50 bokeh can be nervous at times, love the details on K5 steroid, those tiny cobwebs can be seen on original size;

The DA* 16-50 isn't the sharpest of lenses, and 50mm F4 in your image shows a little softness in the leaves. But still, it managed to resolve those cobwebs, and the sensor captured it!

I second this. I tried that once with the FA77 and a borrowed DA40 at f5.6 in good light- I ended up wasting 2 hours removing extra details. lol =))

the AF in the K5IIs is excellent for Wildlife - the camera was able to keep track of this bird that was getting blown around by the wind in the upper branches of this tree.though I have to admit this lens took some time to calibrate properly for the K5 IIs.


Sigma 100-300mm f/4 APO EX DG - Pentax K5 IIs 1/250th f/8 ISO 400

they love apples, here is a 100% crop. The sigma lens does a superb job on the K5IIs - but the initial focus inaccuracy of the lens irked me. I'm still not 100% happy with the calibration of my sigma 180mm f/3.5 APO EX, but I hardly ever use AF with that lens.
