Once again the images 'related' to the article are way off the mark, taken with anything but a K30(or even a K5-same sensor)

And the 'partnershop' is Wexphotographic! What happened to SRS??
Cheers, HG

K110+DA40, K200+DA35, K3 and a bag of lenses, bodies and other bits.

Mustn't forget the Zenits, or folders, or...

PPG entries.

Is that true? If so what exactly is going on? I noticed the 400 ISO test card isn't even in focus.

The 'related' photos were all taken back in 2008, long before the K7, let alone the K5 or K30 were even a future dream.
