I love the third one in your series! I'm out of town at the moment and forgot the power cord for my computer. So I'm looking at these on my tablet, not the best thing to judge pictures. But I just love the lighting on that one. Tomorrow I'm going somewhere that I'll want to take pictures at, so I'm saving the battery. I might manage to get to a store to buy a replacement, but I hate to do that when it isn't lost, just forgotten.

Maybe it's my computer or maybe it was intentional-but all look "soft" to me-except for the last one. I still have to use "unsharp mask" on all my K-5iis images-even after professional adjustments-very disappointing. Always liked the "model shoots" at the photo conferences.

Yes, the first two in particular are very soft, I need lots of practice to effectively hand hold the camera at low light levels. I never seem to get the focus right, or I still have camera shake. I'm not sure if sharpening would help that much, so soft that the picture will develop sharpening artifacts quickly. For now I will stick with better lighting where ever possible.

You might want to also check the focus on your lenses. That K5 was off on some of mine and I used the fine adjustment on it. Those lenses didn't need any adjustments when I got the camera back, I had them do the extended warranty cleaning/adjustments when I sent it in to have the lens release button put back on (wasn't that the button that fell off of quite a few K5's?).
