Quick image from Da 18-250
Posted By: BrianK, 12-15-2007, 02:57 PM

This was just a quick shot of a Christmas Centerpiece this afternoon with the new Da 18-250 and built in flash on the K10. This lens looks like a keeper. There is a second shot, not focused properly, but it does show that the lens works well close up. I will try to take and post some more tomorrow.

Not to take away from your artistry, but I am amazed at the quality of the images from a 14:1 zoom.

I had nothing to do with creating the centerpiece and only had about two minutes to snap the photos and get going to an open house. The centerpiece was done for me by a local florist shop so I could give it to the people hosting the open house.

I have not had a chance to take any outdoor images but from what I saw in these two, the lens looks like it will perform well.

Chako has some images taken with it outside in Ontario at
