K-1 Pictures on amazon

I was browsing amazon for some a/c coil cleaner when my mind wander to my one of my favorite past times (photography). Soon I found myself looking up the K-1 and low and behold there it was with a whole bunch of sample pics I have not seen yet. Now, supposedly these are from DPR but I have not seen them on the site when I have looked in the past.


what is really interesting is these seem to be rather large crops (full size maybe?) of the pics.


If this is posted or alluded to else where sorry for the redundancy.


Enjoy!

scroll down to the sample pics section to see them.

It's a shame the photographer missed the focus on that guy's eyes, but the pores on his nose are awesome!

not available on the UK site yet

His left eye (on the viewer's right) seems to be pretty close to in focus, Wonder if the lens was decentered and throwing the right side of his face OOF. The whiskers on his upper lip are also an indication of excellent IQ.

Yes, they were on the DPReview site. (At least, a number of them were). In fact, I downloaded DNGs for 6 of them before they were withdrawn at the request of Ricoh.

Interesting, that would explain why I couldn't see them when I looked. I wonder what Pentax thinks of Amazon posting them. Probably ok with it as they are not full res images.


How are the DNG's? Do they clean up well in post processing? I hear the raw files are pretty good if not excellent for the k-1.

75075 on Flickr

Here's a 100% crop from one of the samples here: http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/S/amazon-dp.dpreview.com/sample_galler...x_k1/75075.jpg

Looks kinda weird, doesn't it? It's taken with the HD PENTAX-D FA 24-70mm F2.8ED SDM WR lens at f/4.

I'm not sure what that means. The DNGs are just normal DNGs, as I've been using for many years.

I'm assuming that what I'm seeing is all about the basic performance of the camera and lens, rather than anything special about the raw files.
