A few from yesterday, K-3ii with a DA14 f/2.8 ED bolted on. I have only used this lens for night skies so it was fun to take it for a spin in the daylight.









that is a great lens, I sold mine off to a friend in Jamaica when I changed systems and replaced with the comparable Fuji (which got stolen in Paris 2 years ago while I was shooting a protest - bag got picked while I was distracted )

I love my DA14/2.8 - and I'm the odd duck that always suggests it over the DA15 Limited...

I actually prefer the starburst on the 14 over the 15 although the 15's night-time starburst results off streetlights and such is quite pronounced. Maybe even too pronounced for me.

Just a word on my Sigma 20mm:

I had sent it back to Adorama for repair (due to a horrible overexposure issue); they found that the lens had a sticky aperture and repaired it...

when it arrived, I noticed damage to the lens that was not there prior to me shipping it...


before:




and yesterday:






I've already notified Adorama about the damage....
