Finally a quality Zoom lens to match a prime

My LBA got the best of me and I bought the Pentax DA*50-135 a couple weekends ago...thanks B&H....I wanted a quality zoom so bad. Let me tell you I am not disappointed. This picture was taken yesterday at the Caroline Summerfest at 135mm /ISO 100/5.6/ 1/400. What amazes me is that it is not soft at 135mm. You have already seen the shorter end shots, but I thought I would show the long end crop. Stunning detail and quality...finally a quality zoom to match a prime or at the lest give them a run for their money.

Wow. Very nice. Unfortunately, it's out of my price range. Maybe someday...
