Quick and dirty test to evaluate how SR performs with the K10D and K100D. Lots of people are asking me about SR performance and I wanted to provide a bit more than just my suggestive evaluation.
I used the Pentax DA 50-200mm for this test. For reference, I also added 3 shots from Nikon D200 with Nikkor AF-D 80-200mm f/2.8 (obviously, no SR).
All shots were hand held (duh!) and taken at 200mm ISO 400 f/8 and around 1/5s. Yes, it's over 5 stops below the minimum recommend shutter speed!
I took exactly and only 3 images with SR OFF followed by exactly and only 3 images with SR ON. I didn't discard any image.
In short: SR works great and has been improved in the K10D over that in the K100D, as claimed by Pentax.
