I dips me lid to you, Dave. You do things I would never think of doing. But, I have to admit that such experimentaion is how we learn. The first two shots are interesting in that the centre is far better than the edges but that third shot is very good. It is the pick of the bunch.

The hot V8 ute was a Maloo. HSV GEN-F2 / Maloo R8 LSA. A very desirable vehicle.
The Malibu was a mid-sized sedan available from 2013 to 2016. https://www.motoring.com.au/holden-malibu-scratched-from-australian-line-up-104377/

That is so good that I am not worried about the joins. Hardly noticeable anyway!

Another superb "kit lens" shot. Flower and stamen really stand out.

Big seas running at Spoon Bay today 9 November 2017. First two with Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.0 DC Macro HSM 013 Contemporary, last one with SMC Pentax-DA 50mm f1.8.
The big swells were caused by a low pressure system off the coast between Australia and New Zealand.

The low-angled light on that shot lifts it above the ordinary. Nice work, Paul.

Oh yes, that is so and will always be the case because of the massive actual size difference between a phone sensor and an APS-C sensor and the size of the pixels when they put more pixels on a phone sensor than there are on a 6MP APS-C. There are situations where size does matter.

I checked out the full size image on Flickr and it is still pretty good for 6MP. Those older cameras can still deliver the goods.

Don't feel bad. You are not the first and you won't be the last. We are fortunate to be able to have a foot in each camp.

Thanks for looking, Mike. Yeah, that CCD sensor in the K10D loves nice bright colours.

Yes, that Chevvy Bel Air is a '56 model. Plenty of chrome for Chromefest.

Dave, that is a superb, spectacular, fantastic reflection image. And with a couple of humans for scale which really adds to the story. A great example of what the Super-Tak 55mm f2.0 can do. TFS. That is one of your best.

Thank you all for your kind words. Once again, the K10D with a kit lens and default JPG settings did not disappoint.

Yes, Paul, that Chevvy ute (that's what we call them!) was very well presented.

There was a lot more sun today. Yesterday was slightly overcast.

Yes, the colours are better today. So, now you know why I would not consider selling either of my 18-55mm Pentax lenses. Most of my K10D images were taken with those lenses. I'm not about to part with them.
And to back up what Paul said earlier, I am also stuck on APS-C. With my K10D and a K-3 I have no need for anything else while they keep working.

Thank you very much, CR.



Jpeg settings are: Image Tone | Natural, Saturation, Contrast and Sharpness are all on 0. No adjustments.

I have just returned from Day 2 of Chromefest and it was much busier and more crowded today. Pretty much as expected and tomorrow will be even worse. Today I managed to prise the Sigma 17-70 off the K10D and decided the give some love to the SMC Pentax-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL WR. Here are a few samples and again unprocessed JPGs apart from resizing.

I don't expect that I will see the 18-55mm WR. I still like it. And I still have my original version 1 18-55mm that came with the K10D.

Maybe the following might influence your choice of the Sigma 17-70. I sometimes feel that I overprocess my images so today, after attending day 1 of Chromefest, the only processing I did was to resize the JPGs SOOC. K10D JPGs are good enough to do that.
