The K10D was my first DSLR. I have so many fond memories of this camera.

Here are just a few pictures. My two Grandchildren, the Memphis Belle, Anchor Chain on the USS Battleship North Carolina, and a Pano at a local lake.

Thanks for taking a look.
Beautiful photos - I esp like the first one Do you no longer own your K10D?

Wonderful work with the K10D -- I particularly like the last two.


Here's one from yesterday of a spring lamb that didn't make it through the spring. Shot with the Zenitar 16mm at extreme close up -- the skull is actually no bigger than a tennis ball.

The K10D is my first and so far only DSLR; just waiting and putting money aside for the upcoming FF....
What I really do love about the combination of the K10D and lenses from the F-series is the great color rendition. Here are some of my all time favourites:

F 70-210






F 135



F 100



F 50



F 28

There really is no need to post images as large as these. Please consider resizing in future so that the image fits on the screen....because I don't scroll sideways to look at your (or anyone else's) images. Thanks.

I'm enjoying the juxtaposition of a dead animal with what appears to be a lovely day you were having over there :P

Thanks. I originally saw it in b&w, but then when I got home I decided that colour made it seem even sadder that the poor little lamby-wamby was missing one of our rare Dartmoor sunny days. But now I'm leaning back towards b&w again because of my deep-rooted sense of morbid gloominess.

All of which means that basically I didn't take the time to pre-visualise the photo properly when I took it.

Regardless, it's a nice shot. The front element of your Zenitar had to be practically touching that skull!

This is just a walkaround shot taken at high noon, while walking the dogs near our "returning" lake. This area of the lake has been completely dry the past few years due to drought conditions, but has returned with the heavy Spring rains we've had. Sigma 17-70 at 17mm:

Sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused, you're absolutely right. I just had the impression the forum's software would scale them down to approbiate sizes automatically and present clickable links to the higher resolutions ....

Just fiddled a bit with Flickr's sharing options, hope it looks better now.

Cheers Axel

Fits fine on my 27" iMac, no scrolling required... or maybe I'm seeing the reworked down sized images now.

DA35 Macro bike ride

Didn't use my K10D much the last few years (mainly my K-x), but toke it with me on a bike ride a few weeks ago with the DA35 Macro mounted.

Ah, yes, that is much better now. At the larger size I could not appreciate how good those images are. And they are very good. Thanks for sharing. In fact, they would look good even just a little bit larger.

I think you are seeing the resized images. I have a 23" Dell screen and I would have had to scroll a long way to see the all of images. I doubt that they would have fitted on a 27".

That 16mm is an excellent lens. Than you for the extra info re the size of the skull. I would never have guessed that it was so small. A great shot. I like both the colour and mono versions.

You have reminded me I must take my little one out for a walk before it rains again

Nice shots Tom.
Thanks Steve!

What I did notice is some raw artifacts (eg moire like colours on the water) which I don't see on the k-x. Probably caused by the sharp da35macro combined with the weak aa filter on the k10d.

I guess this will not be an issue on the k3-ii because it has more pixels.

I think I messed up the quote.

Really nice pictures.
