Thanks again everyone. It turns out that you can't use the CIF function with the laowa lens. I tried, I really tried.

Thanks again.

Thanks everyone. I'll try these suggestions when I get home tonight.
I should add that the 15mm is also a macro lens which is why I was hoping to use CIF on it.
We'll see if we can get it working.
Thanks again everyone.

Pentax K-70 soft image issues
Posted By scottish_explorer

Yeah, the photo is underexposed and that will contribute to the problem.
Even when I have proper exposure and with a different lens I feel the images just aren't very sharp.

I'll add a few pics here for you to see.

I may well be over compensating with 1/400, I have shaky hand lol.



---------- Post added 04-09-20 at 07:12 PM ----------

I think there was definitely a problem with the lens.
While pics aren't generally as sharp as I'd like, the pics from this lens were awful.

Hi,

I hope someone is able help me with this. I always feel that images taken with the k-70 are quite soft, not very sharp at all. I've tried various f stops, shutter speeds and ISO range and nothing seems to make a difference. I'm going to attach of photo of my son so that you can see what i mean. It was shot at f/3.5 1/400 at ISO 500.


Any ideas or help would be appreciated.


Thanks

hey, thanks for the reply. i tried that and it didn't make the difference. what i had to do was set the aperture ring to "A" for the lens to work. i am new to pentax and thought i had to set the f/stop with the ring lol. oh well, another step on the learning curve. thanks again.
