Over exposure's not the fault of the lens. Assuming that the two images, right and left, are shot with the same exposure, if the right side suffers from over-exposure that suggests better light transmission for the lens in question, either because of fewer groups of elements in the lens and/or better anti-reflective coatings.



Maybe you're right about portrait shooting, but I'm more concerned with capturing aesthetically pleasing (as opposed to "realistic") color data for landscapes, so I bring a completely different perspective to this issue. If there's a loss of data in the red on the left image, again, I would say that's an exposure issue (it's very easy to clip the red channel). But if more red data (or, rather, a larger percentage of the red part of the color spectrum), that's a testimony to greater light transmission and more color data being captured by the sensor (and more data to work with in post).

To be sure, as has already been mentioned, there isn't much difference between these two images, but to the extent there is a difference, I prefer the one on the right. The image on the right has more contrast and richer colors. Look at the white cup on the side. It's whiter in the image on the right — more testimony to better contrast, greater clarity, brighter, more vivid images. The image on the right also has, to my eye, a richer, brighter red color, and more attractive tone of green on the strawberry petals.

Traveling with DA* 50-135 or 55-300 PLM?

For longer trips, the DA 55-300 PLM, paired with the KP, becomes mandatory. I rarely use it otherwise, as for local shooting and shorter trips, I tend to use only the K-1 and I'm not into shooting APS-C lenses on FF bodies. On my recent trip to Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons NPs, I took over a thousand shots with it. It makes a great companion for the DFA 28-105 on the K-1 as it enables me to easily switch from a standard to a telephoto zoom without swapping lenses.
