Fully Clothed Lacie
Lens: DA*50-135 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Texas ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: Rupert, 02-24-2011, 12:19 PM

I still have some unprocessed photos of my girls I am finding.......I think the 2nd one here might be one of my favorites of Lacie....

The DA* 50-135 is SDM, has a bad reputation for some, and I did have one fail also, but I use it mostly MF. If you shoot portraits and such, do not miss this lens, it is superb and I would want it even if it did not AF. The entire range is excellent and it is a pleasure to use in MF.

Best Regards

Lacie

I can't argue with that Bob! They are fun girls and lovely too!
I usually take a half dozen lenses with me on a shoot, and invariably end up with the DA* 50-135 as the most used. Being able to zoom from any shooting position is a great advantage for me, and when I "get it right" the lens never fails to deliver outstanding results.......remember, I said "when I get it right".

Best Regards!

Thanks Scott/Susan/Jer......Lacie is a lovely young lady and lots of fun to work with. Sometimes I wish I was young again too, but I don't know if that is wise. The world is very different than it was when I was young, and not as easy or as forgiving. These young kids don't know what they missed in our old world...it was pretty neat I thought!
Best Regards & Thanks for looking!

I hear you, my friend. But, whether wise or not, it's not possible . . . . . the second law of thermodynamics says it's a non-starter. Indeed, the three laws of thermodynamics tell us that "you can't win, you can't draw and you can't leave the game."

Yes, I am familiar...but you can leave the game feet first if you can't draw fast enough!
