Hi All,

Has anyone seen this yet? It is an Hungarian web site. The image is at ISO 100 with the K10D, as best as I can guess:

Waiting for your comments.

Nicholas

Neat photo - wonderful DOF. The K10 is certainly producing some nice pictures, both here and elsewhere.

It is a great shot. I don't know how the photographer managed ISO 100, there must be far more light inside that church/cathedral than any other I have seen or else there is a monster flashgun involved.

After reading and seeing the K10 results here it is definately on my "want" list. Unfortunately, the Christmas budget is blown, so, hopefully this spring.

Hello All,

I am trying to determine which lens was used. If I go with the K10D I definitely want whatever lens was used for this image.

Can anyone try translation?

Eagerly waiting your responses.

Thanks, Nicholas

A tripod. That was a 30 second exposure at f/9 according to the EXIF.

Ifind the lack of detail, not to mention the noise level, very disturbing. I have to go out and buy a Cancon right away.

BTW, I read a Swedish informal review of K10D in a forum. The guy was very positive, except about "the extreme difficulty to find appropriate lenses, new or second hand".and :angry:

someone translated that review over a dpreview here -

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=21252919

ok, i have a question for the k10d owners here:

in the sensitivity mode, i read that you get to use the index finger dial as a program shift selector - does that mean i could use my A series lenses, set the sensitivity with the thumb dial and set the aperture/shutter values with program shift with my index finger? because that would be heaven and worth the upgrade alone!

If you read through the guy's translation of the review that i linked to (at dpreview) he stated the photos taken on the site were with the kit 18-55, a sigma 105 or the pentax 50-200, so, with the exif data showing 38mm it would have been shot with the kit lens.

Hi All,

Ok. I got it.

If you can take this kind of image with the kit lens, Pentax should use it in a national TV ad campaign.

It is simply fantastic.

Nicholas
