DA 55-300

My "walking around" consists primarily of walking on my own property in the woods. I am surrounded by tall mountains so there are very few opportunities for a good wide angle photo.

When my camera is put away in its bag, it is always fitted with the 55-300 so I can grab it quickly when I see something. It is also my most used lens.

At the moment it's FA43 non-stop on the K-x
Sometimes the DA*16-50 when i need something wider and
for potraits the DA70.

Soon the FA*24 will be joining the gang for some "walkaround" use

Tamron 28-300 for when it's dry out, Pentax 18-55 WR for when it is wet or looks like getting wet.

I use 35mm film cameras only. For me it's almost always a 35mm fixed focal length lens.
In the case of my Pentax SLR cameras it's usually an M 35/2.0 lens.

Love your photos, especially the middle one... and if I might ask.. how do you link from flickr so that the image shows like that instead of just a link?


That's a dramatic shot... what is going on there? is it all one photo?

DA 35mm/2.8 ltd on digital followed by the A 50/1.2. However, I often run with 2 digital bodies and will typically have a DA 21 ltd on one and FA 77 ltd on another.
