It may just be the WB setting but when people say "what do you mean by muddy Tamron colour" .... that's exactly what I mean, those mages posted in the first series.

That muddy magenta/purple is somethign i just don't see with Pentax glass.

I really like your pictures! It looks like Tammy 70-200 is a very capable lens, perhaps my next purchase will be this beautiful Tammy!!!
I have a question about changing focusing points in K-x: is it convenient? Are you using a dial to change them or you have to go threw the menus?

Just checked my K-x. It's pretty easy. You hit the OK button, which is in the center of the directional pad, it will brings up the AF point selection menu. You can use the dial or pad to select 4 choices. Auto 5, Auto 11, Center, or manually pick one of the 11 focus points.

You can also access it through the info button's quick menu. Which takes a few extra steps to get to, and once it's over the AF point icon, you can use the dial without entering into the main AF Point screen, then quickly go and make any other changes in the quick menu.

Thank you for the info. I see it's pretty easy to do, but you cant see/control the actual selection in the viewfinder, since it's empty, I mean K-x doesn't have the red dot indication like the K-m, which I am using. So in order to select the desired point manually you have to use LCD screen, which is ok, but still takes an extra second or two. Thanks again for the info!
