Pleased to meet you Ed. For some reason, I thought you were down around St. George in the Beehive state. I guess if I followed your videos I would have noticed the frequent local Oregon flavor.


Same here Steve! I lived in Portland for over 20 years, but I've been in NE Oregon and now Boise for the past few years. Portland was a GREAT city for photography!

Once I got my presets in order, I notice no difference whatsoever. With the K-3 I use less sharpening in my presets and turn off sharpening and edge sharpening altogether when necessary. My sharpening with K-5 tends to be in the 30-40% range. With the K-3 in the 10-20% range or turned off altogether. I lose no detail unless I have to turn on noise reduction or otherwise mask noisey images, but that is far from a common practice. And there is never else detail than there would be with a K-5 in the same sized image.

If we are talking about jpegs, I'm out, i have little experience with them.

Yea, that's a good point. I shoot fine sharpening on my Jpegs for the K5IIs and they turn out great. I set that on my K3II and I think it's overdoing it. I need to reset that back to default. The K3/II needs less/different sharpening for sure, among other things.
