Yes, Tulip, Spiral and Paperclips are K10 the other colour shots are my K100d Super, another CCD camera. The Tulip shot is almost as it was straight from raw

Wow, I've never seen such colors on a parakeet before! I didn't know they could achieve red in those birds - nice shot.

Dirt cheap for what it is.

birds kept in cages, irks me, why do they do it?

nothing better than seeing the birds fly free, create bird attracting gardens instead is a thought.

Τruly Ι agree with you 100%.
Let's free all pets.
Let's close all zoos.

I wish you Happy New Year

A snapshot of the late afternoon sky today. I didn't boost the saturation at all in post processing -- this is the natural level of saturation that you get from the 18-55mm kit lens with the 10mp CCD. Now that I've got a copy of the kit lens that actually works well (my fourth one), I'm starting to quite like it.

Nice one. I'm glad you're becoming a 18-55 fan! Is it one of the latest which collapses to a small size?

That would be the 18-50, not the 18-55. It's a slightly different lens.

Thanks Russ. It would be fun to try out the new collapsible 18-50mm some time, but mine is just the standard 18-55mm that came with my K-S1. I wonder if maybe Pentax has updated the coating used on the kit lens recently, because this one gives a much nicer rendering than the other ones I've owned, with more natural colours and a more sophisticated handling of the transitions between tones. Maybe I just lucked out and finally got a really good example of the kit lens on my fourth try.

I assume that your latest one is the WR version, Dave. I upgraded from the first version of the 18-55 mm to the WR and I can see a big improvement in the images it produces. I need to use it a bit more than I do.

I wish it was WR, Ray, but it's just the standard version.

My first 18-55mm was a version 1 that came with the *ist DS. It was fundamentally unsharp at any focal length or aperture, and I ended up binning it.

My second was the Samsung D-Xenon version. It was reasonably sharp but had a nasty bluish-purple cast to every shot I took with it -- perhaps Samsung used different coatings than Pentax? I gave that one away to a friend.

Third was the 18-55mm WR. Again it was fairly sharp, but it tended to give a pinkish cast to shots. Its rendering style just didn't suit me personally, and I ended up donating it to a charity shop.

I seem to have finally struck lucky with the fourth one. It has a neutral colour rendering and more subtle contrast characteristics than the others, so that finally I've got an 18-55mm that captures shots in something close to the way I naturally see things.

I just (Christmas) upgraded to a K-3 II from my 2007 K10D. I was wondering what to do with the K10D body (eBay?) but now I think I may just hold on to it <g> It was a big jump to go from it to the K-3 II (which honestly I am still learning). I don't have any real shots from my new body yet (just hundreds of test shots and goofing around shots) but once I do, I'll be sure and compare it to the K10D.
