Some SGPro r2 / XL2 Footage - Thoughts?

We just finished our first real production shoot with our SGPro r2/XL2 combo and wanted to post some of the stills for feedback and any pointers for our upcoming shoots. It's part of a serio-comedic short film I'm writing/directing.

These have been flipped around and have the Magic Bullet "Basic" profile applied to them.

We're used two Pentax-K mount lenses for this -
SMC Pentax 50mm f/1.4 AF
Sigma 28mm f/1.8 II Aspherical
Both lenses were pretty wide for the majority of the shoot, the 50mm being between 1.4-2.0 and the 28mm between 1.8-~2.5

There's the upper right edge being black (a lesson learned about some monitors....) that needs changed.

Any comments or feedback would be so helpful and greatly appreciated!

Look nice. Yeah, i think you need to zoom in just a touch more there.

Some are sharper then others, which goes to show how much more critical setting focus is when using an adapter.

Yeah, we were using a little cheap 4" LCD monitor to try to focus the camera too - which just wasn't giving us enough. We're bringing something larger with better resolution next time.
