New Lens Work Out
Lens: DA21 Ltd. Camera: Kx Photo Location: River and Forest 
Posted By: tessfully, 03-18-2011, 12:43 PM

Hey all. I have been pretty busy lately. Hoping to get back to enjoying everyone's photos over the weekend.

I have a few to share. I got a new lens, a Pentax DA21mm Ltd. It is a tiny pancake lens and on my Kx the whole camera feels almost like carrying a Point and Shoot... just so light.

I really really really like this lens and now I want the DA15mm!!!

I also got a monopod. I can't say enough about how handy and easy it is to use and carry.

Anyway, here is a diversity of shots taken with the new lens should anyone have an interest in how it works. I am not a great photographer, but the lens has done a fine job with colour, depth, texture... and the macros I tried with it are good, but the bokeh not as good as the Tamron... than again, that could be me and my settings.

Thanks for looking!
