DA 70mm Limited

I've been playing with this lens orienting myself to the stuff Pentax sent me...Is this baby sharp...ridiculous. Being that I haven't used it before I cannot believe what comes out of this thing. I'll use it in ten days for a shoot in studio...Can't wait.

Ahh don't talk about the DA70, still can't get it in Australia...

Attention Pentax remember us, big island down the bottom of the map... please give your Australian distributor at least a few of your premium lenses...

Actually I am keen to see more samples from this lens, though it will just make the wait more painful for me.. LOL

I'm really enjoying my DA70, which my wife graciously allowed me to buy, to give to her, to give to me - for Christmas. Here's one I shot right after I got it. At f/11 this one was shot far from wide open, but it gives you a flavor of the lens nevertheless.

Ouch! Jer, that thing is sharp enough to cut! Does it come with gloves? And I have to say that what your wife did seems quite unusual. At least my ex would have found it so.

NaCl(looks like both the lens and the wife are quite sharp)H2O +
