Five for Ten
Lens: FA 100, Bokina, smc A 28 Camera: K10D Photo Location: Denver, Colorado USA ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/200s Aperture: F4 
Posted By: rbefly, 10-16-2014, 03:31 AM

Here's five recent photos taken with the K10D, using three different lenses. Sticking to low ISO's, slow A/F (or, use M/F) and a few other fiddly tricks to work around the older-body tech, seem minor when the color rendition, hues and blending are this fine. CCD sensors rule!
Of course, all may not agree. For those that do, there's a dedicated camera (body) club here, too.
The first three used the FA 100mm f/3.5 Macro, the 4th (pink petal) was done with the Vivitar 90mm f/2.5 @1:2 and last (trees) used the Pentax A 28mm.
Hope you enjoy these!
Ron

A cool, eclectic collection, Ron. You could burn your fingers on that first one!

Thanks!

Thanks, Charlie and Jer! I'm pretty happy with the color rendition and overall 'look' of the photos, the K10's sensor (and other limits) mean it's not great for everything. But slow-moving trees and plants turn out OK. Once the ISO gets to 400, out comes the K-5.

I really like the selective focus on the 2nd one Ron, great colors as mentioned. I think it has more to do with the photographer than the equipment and I think you've proven it with this selection and variety of photos here.

Thanks!

Thank you, Bob. Coming from someone with your skills, particularly doing outdoor photography, I consider it a great compliment.
The 2nd photo is a sort of sentimental favorite. It doesn't blast you with vivid color or blistering sharpness, it's more subtle and textured. Glad you like it!
Ron
