In praise of the K20D (I just completed my 2011 archives.)
Lens: Many Camera: K20D 
Posted By: normhead, 05-03-2020, 10:46 AM

If anyone's interested, I just posted my Best of 2011 K20D and Optio W90 images. An example.
K20D and 18-135


K20D and DA* 60-250


K20D and Sigma 18-250


K20D and DA 10-17 fisheye.


K20D and FA 50 1.7


K20D and DA-L 18-55


K20D and 21 ltd.


K20D and Tamron 90 macro


The K20D was before Pentax started to improve the autofocus, which got really serious with the K-30. This image also taken with that impossibly slow DA*60-250. It must have been divine intervention.
OMG, how did this happen?


Here's the link to 73 images, at least half K20D images.

Nicely eclectic series, Norm. And I had the same appreciative thoughts about the K20D after looking back at some my old files.

For some reason we tend to remember how bad it was instead of how good it was. It definitely had low light issues and I had weird chroma noise ruin a number of images. You definitely had to nail the exposure... but, when you nailed it, it was properly nailed.

I was more than happy with my K20Ds... so much so, I was still using them right up until the FF came on scene.

Trust me that was some long wait.

It wasn't good for my little birds. It had to go.
