Very interesting! Would be nice to see this photo also shot with a regular K-7. BTW- where'd you get the IR modded k-7?

DA35 is the killer flower lens. I keep saying it and it keeps being proved true. Nice one.

Thanks for the comments.
Adam... Next time the sun is out at my house (it's been pretty foggy) will see if I can get a similar shot with the regular K-7.

As for the modded K-7... Recently had Spencer's do an astrophotograpy conversion (clear conversion with a heat reduction system). Spencer's Camera - Digital Camera Infrared IR Conversions & IR Photography - AstroPhotography

rparmar... Yes, the DA 35mm does love plants and flowers; and pretty much anything else for that matter. Such a versatile little fellow. Take him out so often, think my other lenses must get jealous.
