I think there's room in this thread for some examples with the Q and adapted lenses. . .All were shot in jpeg with in camera sharpening set to -4. The Screech Owl and turtle are captives, the rest are in the wild.

FA 50/1.4 at f2, handheld, PP with NR, sharpening.


D FA 100/2.8 Macro at f2.8, handheld, PP with NR, sharpening






DA 18-250 at 250mm/f6.3, handheld, PP with NR, sharpening


DA 55-300 at 300mm/f8, with a tripod, PP with NR , sharpening


FA* 300/4.5, at f4.5 with a tripod, PP with NR , sharpening, some local CA/PF correction


DA 50-200, at 200mm/f5.6, with a tripod, PP with NR , sharpening, some local CA/PF correction


Tamron SP 300/2.8, at f2.8, with a tripod, PP with NR , sharpening, some local CA/PF correction


I'm slowly going through my lens collection, but I've got quite a few to go. . .

Impressive images snostorm. You are really pushing the limits of the Q. Even " bending the rules" by shooting beyond f4. Surprised at how well f6.3 and f8 held up. Will reconsider some lenses I panned before. Keep up the good work.
thanks for sharing

Hi barondla,

Thanks!

I've learned that accepting "conventional wisdom" about digital photography is not necessarily in my best interest, so I usually go out of my way to think outside the box and try stuff that's not supposed to work. I realize that I probably have lower standards than many about what is an "acceptable" image, and I probably rely on PP more than most to get some of the final images that work for me, but if this works to my benefit, it's all good.

I've still got quite a few lenses to test, and unfortunately too few subjects to shoot. Most of my normal haunts aren't producing much this spring, and the unusual weather isn't helping, filling out the trees prematurely, and I'm learning new techniques to shoot the Q all the time. I should be showing some new results with more lenses pretty soon.

Can't wait to see more images. You always manage to capture good critters. Know what you mean about the weather. Couldn't shoot outdoor macro or long tele with the darn 15-30 mph wind all weekend.

Spent Sunday afternoon fixing the tripod mount on my Q to PK adapter. The original screws were so short that they only used about three of the threads in the adapter. Now they go all the way thru.

A few shots with the Q and #1 prime

A very aggressive black and white mode, I like it.

Incredible cathedral jezza323. Has great clarity and a 3D look. Everything looks so ornate.

MEXK, the dog portrait is so sharp. Well done and good use of the Q.

Ve2fvd, really like the high contrast image of Pentax lens cap.

Thanks barondla

Bit further up the aisle, with some HDR (probably a bit too much HDR)

Defo too much HDR in the last one but we forgive you just this once
I suspect this was done in PP and not using the camera HDR mode
because the latter has never given me a result looking like this?
