Pentax K10D Digital SLR - Test shots – Full-res crops Review

”A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages.

Some pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.”

This image is taken from a PEF RAW file, converted using Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop CS3, and then saved as a JPEG using minimum compression. Compare with the Nikon D80, Olympus E-510, Canon EOS 400D and Sigma SD14 among others.

The 1.5x conversion factor for the APS-C sensor means the 18mm wide-angle end of the kit lens is equivalent to 27mm on a 35mm system.
