Wow.
I've been waiting for a shot taken with the K-5IIs which would come close enough to my style of photography. And you have succeeded. Thanks, now I'm a few notches closer to the buy side.
The detail in the hairs is exquisite and the lighting is really pleasant. I've never seen a plant quite like this.
Thanks again for both the fine photograph and showing what this camera can do.

It was my pleasure and if this shot helped you in any way then that doubles my pleasure!

Very, very good detail from that new camera EM, any sharpening applied at all? Thanks for showing us, now I can drool at least.

Not a great deal of PP required. The camera amazes me with it's ability to give these results.
