Pentax 16-50 f2.8 woes

Hi there. I did the test where I change the Micro Focus whilst shooting a flat test piece and I uploaded the images here

Micro Focus Tests - philrosephoto

I have also uploaded one image from yesterday shoot which seems soft to me. Today I volunteer as I do every Wednesday at the local Humane Society where I Photograph cats. I will take both the 16 to 50 and the 16-45 and do some with one and some with the other. This will be a baptism of fire since cats in boxes are notoriously difficult subjects! I will let you know when I have added the results to the same folder and you can tell me if I am being a pixel peeper. It seems like perhaps the best bit of advice I've had is that I just need to take lots of photographs and hope one of them comes out in focus which is clearly not ideal. This doesn't seem to happen and anything over about 3 feet, by the way.

Oh, the photograph taken 16-45 had no micro-adjustment. I have never found I needed to use that feature. Somebody asked whether maybe my focus point was slightly off but since no other lens has this problem I'm assuming that that can't be the case? It can't be that the focus point is off for one lens and not for others, could it? The fact that it seems to do a very good job focusing on flat subjects does kind of suggest that that could be the case. What do others think? Would it be possible for the focus point be off for one lens and not for others? I usually shoot spot or customisable spot (is that the correct name?) And don't find Pentax is very good on multipoint focusing so pretty much never use that.

Thanks again to everyone to sticking with me on this.


I like turtles.

While I shoot commercially with my K5ii, K5 and K20 my bad back means I travel with small G Series Canons. Here is my daughter, Ally, at the age of 10 dancing by the post office in downtown paris. Shot early in the morning before the crowds descended.

I found these plants near the top of Mount Baker in Northwest Washington just as the sun was setting.
Thanks for liking and recommending this image!
