I took these shooting jpg yesterday - no RAW shots. My settings were "bright" with the saturation at 0, sharpness at full, and contrast at the lowest setting. Then processed in cs2. I'm still amazed at the IQ of the k100d. What a great little camera! And I thought the 55-300 performed very well. Lots of detail...cheers...Don

One of the spots I shoot wildlife



A Young Female Wood Duck



A young male...



Song Sparrow with the motherlode....



Flower with a bee busy at work...



After viewing these and seeing the results I got, I'm going to have to try out the k20d's jpg engine and see what it can deliver. I was quite amazed at the IQ that the k100d's jpg put out. Much better than my long gone Canon ever achieved...cheers...Don

Your shots are fabulous - I agree that the K100 produces excellent quality. The K20 does really well with jpg but the settings will be different - you'll need to experiment to see what you like.

Those are very impressive photos, the color in the ducks, and the sharpness in the bee are great. I'll have to try those settings on my K100D. What color space did you use, sRGB OR adobeRGB?

You have mastered the body/lens combo! You have demonstrated both landscape to close-up capabilities. Great pics--like the #2 and #4 the best!

The IQ of the K100 doesn't surprise me because I use it regularly. The lens, however, is another matter -- I just got through reading several favorable user reviews and the chief complaints about the lens were the lack of macro capability. Your no. 5 makes me wonder what they were complaining about! All five are good, but that shot is amazing.

All those are very nice shots Don. I really like the colors in the last one.

Thanks everyone. Yes, the k100 is a great little camera. Still think it's one of the best for IQ out there...D.
