It had been raining the previous days leading up to this morning, but the sun came out and really gave a spectacular show of color at Fishermans' Shoreline Park in Monterey, CA. ... This is a 5 shot HDR with Topaz Glow applied.

DxOMark K-1 review

I saw this review today on the DxOMark website today that just bestows all kinds of accolades on the K-1, even going so far as to say that it has the third best sensor ever tested, just behind the Nikon 810 and the Sony A7 R2.

I saw an ad for the Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di zoom lens that supports full frame from B&H and couldn't resist getting it as it was the last NEW one they had in stock. I'm sure glad that I did.... it's a great walk around lens. I'm hoping that Tamron will reintroduce the lens with updated optics and silent drive. The resized photo on here doesn't do it any justice. It is sharp in the sweet spot like most lenses of this type, although a little soft at the far end, but then again, I'm not always shooting at 300mm... Oh yes... this is London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

I saw this rather colorful thistle growing and just had to shoot it... Cropped and post processed with Topaz adjust and glow. I apologize for the missing EXIF but it got stripped off somewhere in post. Taken with a K-3 and a Pentax 18-270mm zoom...

Pentax K-3 II Officially Announced

I just received my K-3 II today directly from the Pentax Web Store... Even though I paid MSRP for the camera from the website, I did get two bonuses, one of which was unexpected. First, the known bonus is a Pentax branded sling bag which is actually pretty good quality... The second and unexpected bonus is a Pentax FLU Pro 16gb wireless SD card.... So all in all, paying full price for the camera wasn't such a bad deal after all... :)
