Out of the Dark, Into the Light
Lens: DA 50-200mm Camera: K200D Photo Location: Deep Woods ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F5.6

I was intrigued by this fern which was wavering in the breeze, partly in the light and partly in deep shadow. It's not as sharp as I'd like but the pattern of the fronds and the dark background appeal to me.

If you hadn't mentioned the softness I wouldn't have noticed it at all. Great shot!


Are you happy shooting with your DA 50-200? I need to purchase some longer glass in the near future.

Thanks for your comments, Chris. I bought the DS 50-200 before the 50-300 was available, and it is the lens I find myself using most. It has limitations, mainly that at 200mm in lower light it can be a bit grainy, but I've largely been happy with it. It is a little frustrating when photographing small birds in the wild, though. I will probably replace it with the DA 50-300 at some point, for that extra bit of reach at a reasonable price.
