Pentax-645 FA300mm/5.6

If some are interested here are some quick test shots with my new Pentax-645 FA300mm/5.6. Looks quite good even W/O but slightly better just stopped down to f/6.3-8. Those shots were taken in bad light inside my house last night.
Taken with the K-01, in RAW without any sharpening on a tripod.
Will try to shoot in better light in the coming days.

At f/5.6

At f/6.3

At f/8.

Impressive. I suspect you'll be shooting wide open most of the time to get that creamy BG!
