K20D Enlargement.

Quick question. Have anyone ever made any enlargement up to 16x20 with K20D and FA/DA limited lenses and had good result. I'm thinking of adding medium format for my serious work, but I never try to enlarge any pics of my K20 with my DA limited lenses. thanks

I've had my K20D only a short time (less than a week) so I haven't made enlargements with it. Unfortunately I do not own LTD lenses either.

I have made 18x24's with my K10D and DA 16-45mm and 10-17mm as well as a Tamron 28-75mm and they all turn out terrific...good enough that people buy them. I would think the limited series would be even better than what I have.

I've been toying around with picking up either a 21 or 40mm limited for landscape work.

Assuming it's a technically good shot (properly focused, exposed, etc...) and un-cropped you should get good prints without interpolating sized:
10x16 @ 300 DPI
20x32 @ 150 DPI
26x40 @ 120 DPI

16x20 would be ~243 DPI

(My K20D outputs RAW @ 4864 x 3136)

Yes, but Ben cheats. He kidnapped Tinker Bell and makes her sprinkle pixie dust on his sets and equipment.
