Beautiful, who says you need a pricey lens to take a good shot.

great shot,... I've read some comment about this lens being a little soft, It doesn't look soft at all to me, is this the current model. Beautiful colour!

Thanks all. I do hope these two make a home in the box and raise up some young for more photo ops. This lens is the rebranded Quantaray, exif shows it as a Tamron. It's gets a little soft wide open, and has bad PF in certain situations. This was shot at f11, and I used a little USM in PP. Shot from a window in my shed on a tripod. I entered the wrong camera though, this was with my ist-DS, not the K200.
