Part I: All DA35...All the Time (Color)
Lens: DA35 Limited Camera: K-x 
Posted By: nate_b, 09-04-2010, 10:42 PM

A new job in a new city and the sale of our home have conspired against me exercising my favorite combo in more than a month - K-x + DA35. Just before all of this life change, however, it was all DA35...all the time. Here is some photographic evidence in color to support this claim and motivate me to get out and shoot.

A great series from someone with a fine lens and the talent to use it well.

Very nice set. I don't love the composition of the swing, the others are lovely.

Thanks for the compliment, Pablom, but I certainly can't take all the credit. Fact is, I take better pictures when the DA35 is attached to the camera. It deserves a great deal of credit, and really is an amazing piece of glass. If you happen to get a copy, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Thanks, grainbelt. I appreciate the C&C, and agree that the composition isn't the best in the swing photo. Nice gallery shots. The DA35 certainly is a great walkaround lens, and I find it an excellent dancing partner for the K-x.

Thank you, Jim. The 35 has a way of making whatever it's pointed at look good -- with the exception of my wife and kids, of course. They're already beautiful
