K10D and ETTR & High ISO

Hello,

Previous K-5 user. I am currently a m43 user.

Recently I used a friend's K100D (not Super) body. While I didn't like the viewfinder and general responsiveness of the body (maybe it had to to with the bad-looking after on the body) I was impressed with the colors and the 1600 iso clarity. Here are few examples I took with the body. The images were made with a Pentax A 50mm f/1.2. These are just for giving the camera + lens combo a go, nothing artsy or technical;







These are all shot at ISO1600-f/1.4-1/160 (the kit lens is 1/15) under dim-ish light. I overexposed these shots by +0.3EV (or maybe +0.7, not sure) and then in photoshop I slightly pulled the bright areas and moderately darkened the shadow areas. This method is supposed to yield clear high ISO images in any camera, but I still didn't expect the K100D to provide such clean images. There is some selective sharpening and contrast on the images too. A very very mild amount of NR applied.

The 6MP sensor of the K100D might have something to do with the high ISO too. Seeing this I am thinking of getting a cheap used Pentax body which will not irritate my wallet. Since I will be using it with the only Pentax lens I have, which is a manual lens, I think a K10D with a pentaprism would suit me better with its brighter VF. But since the K10D is 10MP I am not sure about the high ISO performance. But it has more pixels than the K100D and that could be a positive factor too, since size reduction greatly takes care of the noise.

So how will the K10D yield in this process? Or would you recommend me another body?

Any information will be appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you so far, I cannot justify the price of a K-5, even used and low-price for its market. The K-01 seems a better option, I know it is very low in second hand. Any chance I can shroud that design and colors with a body case or something? :))

Need a Pentax body

Hello all,

I am a former user of Pentax K-5. I switched to (actually, back to) Nikon to the D700. But due to some difficulties, I had to sell my FF equipment. I am now enjoying an Olympus E-M5 with Pan 14mm.

Recently I got my hands on a nearly mint Pentax A 50mm 1:1.2. Instantly grabbed it so that no one else can :lol: I have been using it on my E-M5 for some time and I have to say; it is an handsome piece of equipment and yields good results on the E-M5 even wide open. But since there is a 2x crop factor on my body, I thought I could use the lens with a larger sensor, in order to do it more justice.

Ideally I would like to use the 50 with an FF body, for that I should go film Pentax or a Sony A7. I know I can find a cheap Canon 5D Classic, but Canon bodies are a non-starter for me. Film might be plausible, but I am much more of a digital person. And I am not yet convinced of the A7 performance,

All that said, I might spare some funds for a Pentax or APS-C mirrorless body to utilize this glass a little better. I already have a mirrorless, so buying a Nex-something will only bring me more of the same and probably will cost more than a KxxD Pentax body. But if that will serve me better, I might look into those cameras too.

Otherwise, what cheap and good Pentax body would you recommend? The body should not cost much, since I will only be buying the body to use it with the 50 and will not invest any more to that ecosystem.
