We are having a late spring here around Chicago but I went to the Botanical Garden because it was such a great day, 80 degrees and sunny. There were not as many flowers in bloom as I hoped. I spent my time using my Tamron 90mm macro. Before I left I popped the 50mm 1.7 on and got a few nice shots. There were lots of folks with cameras but I was the only Pentax, it made me feel good, I like being outside the herd. Of course when i got home and read about the price increases I was second guessing my choice. oh well, since this lens was on my fathers old ME I guess it doesn't matter what a new lens costs.

Really good colors here - the lens price increase just makes our marketplace more valuable.
