what can i say - it´s big fun shooting the kx!
(and for the record - yes, i´m totally boring and got one with a dull black body... dull & boring work together fantastically ;D
I think more important are the colours inside the camera, not on the surface ) I also rather spend the saved money on lenses.
[BTW - as my friend always say - we´ll wear black until someone finds a new and darker colour some day ;D yess.]

I was somehow sad after the second - deeper - session on friday with my new cam, for I knew I had focussed very accurately and all I got on the computer monitor was quite soft.
I admit to have shot in the greenhorn mode a lot and also in the p mode and somehow it didn´t occur to me that I could have changed the colour mode (I think in the newbie mode you can´t anyway) and the "bright" colour mode isn´t my thing at all (ok, there are lots of them..)
But what I noticed in the evening when making a few more tests in the M mode - I did perfectly focussed shots. I didn´t care about stepping down aperture during the day-shots so I think that was the culprit.

The above shot (our old Bottlebrush Buckeye /Aesculus parviflora/Strauchkastanie) was one of the rather soft focussed looking pics, I sharpened it and had a little cropping - it looks great I think.( forget the framing, nothing too innovative here) And i never thought I could manage a decent bokeh with the 55-200 lens, poor newbie who I am again ;D
I was imagining I never had to pp again those things when shooting dslr - don´t ask me why ;)
