    Default Pentax kit lenses a liitle below par

    Hi, im new to the forum and own a K7 pentax, problem being i am noticing some very heavy blooming effect when taking basic test shots, i have not had the camera in the field yet, but i am concerned about the quality of the lens.

    i'ts noticable on parts of the image where it goes from focus to dof and makes it look like a steamy room, or an old playboy mag warming effect.

    I cant believe the lense is that poor, although i do appreciate that, the lense is a price saving part of the kit.

    however you do not expect it to this degree on a 900.00 camera

    anybody else having the same issue?

    is it something that can be sorted with firmware (ie, lense correction) or is a new lense needed.?

    Other then that... i am very impressed with the camera, and the build quality is unbeatable in my opinion.

    ive owned the k100 super, the k10d, prior to this camera and its a noticable improvement on focus time,and continuous shots,but image quality isnt that far ahead, sure the size is larger being 14.5mb but theres no noticable changes to the images.
