  • [myK-01] Focus Peaking MF Test Shots

    Rained twice in the afternoon and late afternoon, the lighting condition is bad, but it didn't stop me from doing some test using manual focusing with focus peaking assist. I must say, initially it is not as easy especially when shooting at wide open aperture. In this case, I was using the DA70.

    Here's the test results:

    The colors are unretouched, just exposure adjustments and sharpening. I just love the Pentax colors...

    Focus peaking is a great tool for manual focusing. Coupled with Shake Reduction (Mode 2, with live preview), it makes manual focusing a breeze once you get used to it. Suddenly all the M42/PK manual lenses become very attractive again.

      So the K01 does have SR as well, nice to know. Now it's really tempting to switch from a K-x to it. Hm.. Tempting tempting
