K100D at Rocky Mountain National Park
Few pictures from today at Rocky Mountain National Park. The hike starts off at Bear Lake to ends up at Emerald Lake. Very short and easy one. Elevation is between 9,000 and 10,000 feet and temperature was in the high 40s at Emerald lake. Not extreme at all, but I though it was worth mentioning it. K100D shows a tremendous amount of details in the shadows. Not so great in the highlights: when it is gone, it's gone. Multizone metering performed flawlessly. Obviously, one still needs to use spot metering when appropriate. I like the synergy between K100D and the kit lens: in most cases (static subjects) SR compensates for the relative slowness of the lens. And the lens performs great when stopped down as it should when shooting landscapes.v All pictures taken with K100D and Pentax DA 18-55mm lens.
