Lens Porn

I don't usually snap shots of my gear but I was thinking about having photos of them incase I ever sold them (which I probably won't any time soon!) .....not to mention they are beautiful lenses.

so here's some lens/ camera porn :P

DA35 Macro F2.8
-Certainly one of my favorite lenses. It's small and incredibly sharp.


DA40 F2.8
-Great portrait and street lens. It's short lengthy makes it difficult for subjects to know if you are actually shooting them. Also it's incredibly fun and has fast AF


DA10-17 Fish- Eye F3.5-4.5
-Incredibly fun with no limits for creative captures of otherwise normal subjects.


DA*55 F1.4
- I hesitated to purchase this lens due to complaints of horrible BF/FF, and slow AF. I bit the bullet and I'm glad I did. It's one of my new favorite lenses. F 2.0 is exceptional and sharpness is good to 1.4. On the K5 focus is fast and only needed minor AF adjustment.


DA12-24 F4
-This lenses filled my itch between the DA*16-50 and the 10-17 Fisheye. This rectilinear wide ange is sharp...and obviously very wide. It has the same creative fun of the Fisheye and the versatility of the DA*16-50.


DA*16-50 F2.8
-My frist DA* lens, this buddy has tested it's durability through 3 months of rain, dust, waterfalls, and mud in Costa Rica. It's sharp at 2.8 if the focus is nailed just right. My go to lens for everyday life.


DA*50-135 F2.8
- My second DA* lens which also saw the same conditions as my DA*16-50. Sharp at 2.8 and produces lovely bokeh. One of my favorites for portraits and everyday life shooting.


DA*300 F4
-My favorite DA* lens. I started off with a Quantaray 70-300mm a few years ago and noticed that I was always using it at 300mm. I upgraded to the DA 55-300 lens a year later and loved the small size and versatility of that lens. When I came upon a camera store lens clear out I couldn't pass up an opportunity to pick this one up for $1000 new. (there was a DA*200 that I was drooling over too). I sold the 55-300 and haven't looked back. This lens is DA35 macro sharp at F4.


the DA* line up


and the new baby...the K5




And the good ole k20d
