Ouwehands Zoo with the A 135mm/2.8
Lens: SMC Pentax-A 135mm F2.8 Camera: K20d Photo Location: Rhenen, The Netherlands 
Posted By: Rense, 08-07-2010, 01:38 PM

Last week I bought my fifth 135mm lens...., the A 135/2.8. Why? Who will say?
135 mm is definitely not the length I use the most.... But I love the A series lenses,
and when this one came by...I couldn't resist. Today was the first day to try it, and
these are some of the results. It's a mixed bag, all shot at Ouwehands Zoo in
Rhenen, The Netherlands...

It seems to perform up to your usual standards. Nice series and that first one is a killer.


PS: My daughter is a hugh owl fan and I now have drool on my keyboard.

Tim! How close were you to the owl? I will be going to the San Diego Zoo in a couple of weeks and I am thinking of picking up a 55 - 200mm for my kx. Great shots!

Rense, it doesn't seem to matter what lense you put on your camera you make them all sing but I have to agree that the A series lenses are special.
