Turn your High ISO Noise reduction off, it's astonishing.
My understanding is that only affects in camera jpgs, right. Wouldn't help me.

I'm sorry for linking you to that focus technique.
I'm sorry for ending my sentence with a preposition, but what focus technique are you referring to?

Hi klkitchens,

While I appreciate the humor generated by your OP, I'll try to actually help with your problem. What you're seeing in this shot is motion blurring, probably camera shake. Its pretty easily seen in the glasses, the chain links on the near earring, and the air on the near side.To be more precise, it's about 7 pixels at about 70 degrees from horizontal towards the upper left quadrant of the frame.

I'm attaching a quick and dirty camera shake correction on your crop using an older version of Focus Magic that I use for this type of thing. Settings were 290, 7 pixels, at 75% to reduce harshness -- not perfect, but reasonably close. This example is a case where technique is likely the problem.

SR might also be a component, but you didn't mention if it was turned on or off. If it's SR, then technique also comes into play, as all people don't shake their cameras similarly nor consistently, so one might need to tune their technique to take advantage of the stabilization provided by the camera. There is, as they say, no free lunch. . .

LOL... I didn't have any problem with the output at all. But thanks for trying to correct it. we all have tools to remove the minor issues, etc... my point was showing how good the K-3 was at putting out great photos even at High ISO in tough lighting.

I got a new harddrive so I can take care of the extra sharp shots of a K-3. Send it to me.
