Greetings from Texas!

As a new Pentaxian, let me introduce myself:
[FONT=arial, verdana, 'trebuchet ms', 'gill sans', helvetica, tahoma, 'lucida sans unicode', sans-serif]After graduating from NYIP in 1981, I then worked for New York commercial photographer Arnold Katz, learning the craft of large format product photography, shooting books for catalogs, developing 4x5 and 8x10 sheet film, and assisting in a high-volume commercial studio. Enjoying the creative potential of darkroom techniques, I first studied black and white photography in the Seventies and Eighties, corresponding with the late Mr. Ansel Adams via black and white postcards. Mr. Adams "exposed" me to cold light printing, composition, the Zone System, lens characteristics, and various darkroom techniques. Transitioning from film to digital imaging, I find that my Quality Assurance detail-oriented skill set complements my photographic imaging and Photoshop work, hence "[FONT=arial, verdana, 'trebuchet ms', 'gill sans', helvetica, tahoma, 'lucida sans unicode', sans-serif]

Thank you! I am always happy to help others with photography questions! In fact, I may need some help with the K-5, as I am new to the Pentax System. Regards, Steve

Thank you! I am most happy to help others with photography questions! In fact, I may need some help myself, with my new K-5...I want to assure myself that I am getting the utmost in sharpness and resolution from it and the lenses I use (DA 15 Limited, DA 35 Limited, DA 16-45, DA 50-200). I know about the Custom setting for AF Adjustment...I just need to experiment with it as time permits, since a few of my shots so far have been a bit soft. I look forward to your Pentax expertise as well!
