First photos with the Pentax DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro
Lens: Pentax DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro Camera: Pentax K-7 Photo Location: Palm Beach, NSW Australia

Yesterday, I picked up a Pentax DA 35mm Limited Macro, after lusting over Flickr contact Xhanatos' shots with it for a long time. I haven't had much of a chance to use it yet but it's very impressive... I love its rendering.

Everything shot on the K-7. When I picked it up I asked the store if they had any K-rs but no luck yet!




1/13sec, f2.8, ISO 6400



1/40sec, f2.8, ISO 320



1/40sec, f4.0, ISO 500



1/40sec, f8.0, ISO 320



1/60sec, f4.0, ISO 200



1/40sec, f9.0, ISO 1000



1/250sec, f4.0, ISO 100



1/60sec, f2.8, ISO 100


Comments on the photos welcome. Full set on my Flickr.

Impressive, Isn't it? Welcome to the club.. By the way, you're supposed to take that first photo showing the speedometer going 160kph.

I think that even with image stabilisation, camera shake might have been an issue!

Congrats- what a superb do-everything lens it is. Can you custom set those red tick marks on your speedo?

Absolutely. I've never had a macro lens before, and especially given the 35mm focal length it really is a one-size-fits-all -- it's so great to be able to get as close as possible.

As far as I'm aware you can't change the red marks - they're a bit pointless for Australian conditions, I would have preferred them at 40kmh and 60kmh (common speed limits)

Thanks guys! I'm taking it out for its second outing this afternoon - dusk in the park should be a nice test for f2.8.
