AN excellent series of images... it's looking like this camera does everything... That botom image where the dresses look so sharp it's almost artifact-ed, I'm used to seeing that on my SIgma DP2 which is seriously over sharpened with in camera processing, interesting to see it on the K-3. A whole new level of sharpness, that almost has to be softened when you downsize the image.

The following is my first night shot. Tameron 70-200 f2.8 @70 mm. I probably should have left the 18-135 on. Boy was it cold, like 22F (we don't usually get real cold/snow until December around here, but I had to go and get my daughter from "Hunger Games" so I brought along something to keep me occupied. Un-retouched.

A brother's cat is not living leisurely as your cat :(

Your cat seems pretty comfy, nice shot!

When I asked permission to enter a brother's home, I saw his cat, and it did not look happy under the cold weather conditions of being outside to sleep.

The poor thing is out in 40 degree cold weather with an attitude! I just looked at the poor cat and it just...hates me!




Now I'm just joking around, I saw it willingly leave the house in order to play outside. Unfortunately, it did not expect me to be out taking picture of...



Birds!

<--- 100% cropped.


I still have to get the hang of this camera, but it is not so bad! AF tracking seems to be great, except for some occasions.

<--- like this

And I did not adjust the aperture during my first outing as I loved having the aperture at 1.8-2.8 indoors. SO I quickly changed it when I spotted a purple BIF.

Also...I feel terrible for enslaving my camera to my whim of 1000 shutter count in two days! Worse than my nikon's 400 in 2 days!

If you go to your image on Flickr there should be a tab that says something like "ways to share." Pick the BBB link and just paste it into your post.
