    I think I have things sorted with this kit, so will be shooting exclusively with it for this week and with the Zeiss pair of lenses. I'm also experimenting with the in camera JPG settings so shooting DNG+JPG - and this week will sick with the B&W settings for that as well. A bit of cross...

    Pentax My first walk with Pentax Q10 (Queenie)

    I took out my (new to me) used Pentax Q10 with the 5-15mm f 2.8-4.5 and 15-45mm f 2.8 lenses, no goal specifically outside of trying to see what kind of images it can make and the user experience. Little wet duckies, light rain made things a bit more annoying so I stuck with the 15-45mm lens...
