Pentax SMC M 135mm 3.5 samples

Hi everyone

I finally got out of the house today (winter blues you know) and decided to take a few shots with my newly aquired Pentax SMC M 135 3.5.
I usually never go out to shoot this time of day (I am very fussy about lighting in my photos) but what the heck.

I did not post this picture for being a great photo, but wanted to show others the detail and sharpness of the lens, if anyone is considering getting one.

here is the origanal

and here is a close crop of one of the birds. a little jpg artifacts which I could have removed but didn't get to fussy as it isn't a earth moving shot to me

I have to say I am very impressed with it! all manual is new to me, and if it wasn't for the green button and the focus indicator, I would never had got a fully manual lens.

all comments welcome

BTW, K10D, photoshop CS2 shot in PEF raw.
