DA 35mm Macro shots
Lens: da 35 macro limited Camera: k20d Photo Location: california 
Posted By: Timtast1c, 09-09-2010, 09:24 PM

I recently acquired this awesome lens from another forum member and it has to be one of my best decisions ever! It is super sharp and fills the gap of versatility hat my Sigma 105 macro lacked.

here are a collection of shots from this week

most images are F2.8-F4

Man, that little gem is razor sharp and has a very smooth bokeh.
Thanks for sharing these - very nice results.
Congrats and keep shooting with it!

thanks everyone!

Its an awesome lens and does what my DA 40 2.8 couldn't do with the same sharpness.

I definitely think its a must have lens!

Those are some impressive e images. I have the 100 Macro WR but for some reason I still want the 35. You gave a gift with composition.
