I think they're pretty good with the right sweet spot in terms of aperture, especially the DA 50-200 - quite versatile...







Regards,
Marc

Marc, I think you could produce results like that from a pinhole camera... That 2nd picture reminds me of the final battle scene of Excalibur, the fog and sunrise (edit).

Stunning, Marc. Great capture on that hummingbird. That must not have been easy.

Our weather looked like your second shot this morning on my way to work. But, I was running late and didn't have time to stop. It was very eerie looking.

Hi Marc,

The hummingbird is stunning!!!! The fog scene is no less enchanting!!!! I think we would all like to be able to capture images like these. I know I would...

There's no way that I ever got even half that great of a shot with my DA 50-200. To be fair, it's got something wrong with it - I think it had a problem when I first got it, but I wasn't smart enough to figure it out until it got really messed up. On the other hand, I couldn't do that well with ANY lens - those pictures are awesome!

Both shots are impressive, but #2 is really sensational. Good to see another Arkansas Pentax shooter.

Welcome Marc. I too am a Kit lens shooter. My 18-55 DA Kit lens is always with me. Here is a photo taken with mine. http://www.steves-digicams.com/potda/11272007.jpg

We (my husband and I) are BRAND NEW to dslr's. We took some photos this weekend with our 18-55mm lens at a polo match. We used the green mode with the program mode set to "normal" for a portion and "high-speed priority" for a portion. All of our photos turned out dull in color (the greens should be greener, the blues should be bluer). I took photos with my Canon point and shoot to compare and the colors on the point and shoot turned out better. We would appreciate any suggestions as to how to improve..........???
