DA* 16-50mm F2.8, show us what it can do.

Lots of threads here about reliability issues related to the DA* 16-50 F2.8. Let's not get into that in this thread - this thread is about photos only. Please post large, but not too large, and keep the EXIF data intact, or provide a link (to Flickr, etc...) where the EXIF can be seen.

Very nice captures John.
I have quite a collection of keepers of my own using this lens - some of which have been displayed before:





Both relatively long exposures on a K20D.

This thread revisits the notion of having a searchable database on the forum for images captured with certain lenses.

Very nice picture from my home city. Sometimes I wish I had more time to visit the "tourist" locations nearby.

I haven't had the DA* 16~50/2.8 very long and I'm still exploring its possibilities. Truth be told I shoot longer telephoto most of the time so this lens is quite a departure from the norm for me. At the moment I suspect I'll use it for group photographs and interior work such as the image below.

Like this lens a lot.

Shot at a wedding party. The 16-50 was on the camera the most of the time. It's my workhorse for most of my photography.
