Use the Sigma 18-35 set to f/4, Av, and use live view with a 2 second delay on a tripod. Set your K3 to do raw+, and then look at the JPEG output.

The Nikon Coolpix A is similar to the GR, as I said before, and both have dedicated integral lenses that make them as sharp as possible.

The Coolpix will also have in-camera processing designed to produce a sharp output. In contrast there is usually no in-camera processing (including sharpening) applied to a RAW (DNG or PEF) file.


Set your camera to RAW+ e.g. so it creates both a PEF/DNG and a JPG. Set the size of the JPG to be the same as the size JPF produced by the Nikon. Now you are starting to compare apples with apples, though of course the processing the K3 does will differ from that of the Nikon.


I see there's another insult above as well, 'amateurs'. You are not being picked on, you are so convinced you are right that there is something wrong with the hardware that your mind is closed to any other explanation in which case why did you bother posting here?

Give what I said above a try. I think you will be pleased with the results.

But I understand well Petax users, they heve never seen sharp picture. But donīt worry. If you not study other stuff you will be still satisfied and you will never admit that something could be wrong with the Pentax equipment.
That crossed the line to just plain trolling. This thread is done.
