Here's a different subject:




Jpg from RAW, almost no PP, I think only some slight white balance modification.

The lens out resolves my k10d. I can make out individual branches on trees that are over a mile away.

netuser and gus > thank you haha

Okay I found a non-food shot I took last month when I was bored at home. I find myself using the DA21 80% of the time and am playing with the DA35 now.

Nothing special, just a photo of my dog when I saw him jump up on our chair:

Diego, your pizza photos show off the capabilities and focal length of the DA40 nicely. I like that it's just wide enough (compared to a 50) to put any given item into a little context, but not so wide that you have to be right on top of the object to come close to filling the frame with it. Now, some day I hope to actually light and compose some food shots as well as yours!

Thanks Marc! Now I'm having a hard time choosing between the DA35 and DA40 when going out of the house

I have been selling off a bunch of old lenses, and trolling thrift stores for stuff to resell, with the idea of buying a 31mm. Realized today that I have the cash, but couldn't quite bring myself to pull the trigger. I already have a DA 40mm, and it kicks butt; I can't remember ever wishing for a wider aperture. I have wished for closer focusing, though. So I looked at the 35mm, also tempting. Finally I pulled out my DA40, shot a few pics, and even took some with a cheapo "close-up" lens on the front. I think I will just ride with this one for a while - a great little lens.

The DA40 is definitely a lens that I could not sell. There's just something super neat about it that catches my eye... and not just the external looks, but also the pictures it takes. It's sharp, has great color rendition... I've taken some pretty awesome shots with it. AND it's super uber small and super uber light.

I have also been tempted to sell this one off, but I just can't.

Oh, and I think it works well on film cameras also
