You should have taken the same photo with the K100D for comparison.

Dan, would it be possible for you to share raw files for any of two comparisons.

Thanks

I have the files, but I don't have anywhere to upload them. I could email to you.

I don't know why you want my examples though, when you have a K100D and K-x.

I am particularly interested in k20d/k-7 vs k-x.

Can you upload it to RapidShare AG, Cham, Switzerland

If you prefer email, you can also email me at ymantijunk@gmail.com

Thanks

Thanks Dan. Well, may be a personal preference but somehow I liked the k-x colors more - green is a bit different though but overall, k-x feels more vibrant and real. May be the lighting was different between both the shots.

Here are 100% crops from your RAW files. In each comparison, first one is from K20D and next one from K-x.

1)




2)




3)




4)




5)




6)

What did you do to the K20 files, they're all blurry. Did you notice how the K-x blooms on strong red colours?

Bizarre. I would have thought her dad was a 35mm man in which case the film was where it was at for colours.
I tend to agree with you. It is a throw back to the film days.

Well, it's the same file you uploaded, you may want to check it out if the wrong file was uploaded.

To me, k-x red looks good without losing any details. Either we call k-x red blooms or k20d red a bit dull.

Has anyone seen an improvement in colors using the new Pentax 1.4x AW tc with say Sigma or Tamron zooms (like the 70-200mm f2.8)??? I like the Ex line in terms of sharpness but when it comes to IQ its colors seems regurgitated. The new Art series has improved on this front tremendously, but they're not even close to those dulcimer Pentax tones....
