Have used my 28/3.5 on my K10D while out and about doing deliveries in Sydney/North Sydney ... on a nice bright day.

No hood or filters used .... I was mainly playing with Hyperfocal distance while on the move and stationary in traffic. It works nicely when I wanted to get a shot or 2 off quickly due to time limitations.

Would like to try this again though with the 35/3.5 if i can get the chance.

Shot through my windscreen ... see tint strup at top of image

Ira, nice pictures!

But 35mm can be perfect, or itself can even be too wide. I like crowded craft fairs as you mentioned, or festivals, or events with a lot of people. The smaller FL's help ensure a wide DOF and can even be used to shoot without the viewfinder, although the DA-21 shot below was a VF shot. Also under crowded conditions, one may not have the distance that even a 35 might require. I'm waiting for a K24 f2.8 to arrive from ebay :-)


DA21 again, art walk
