Hope you like! I'm still getting used to this lens, which I received yesterday (was only 26... bargain!) :-)

Thanks! :-) That's my fav one, too - I love those little hoverflies, they are so cute :-)

The Bokeh in the first one looks straight out of a Monet.

The bokeh on this lens is absolutely fantastic! It can be a little tough sometimes to get the focus just right on subjects that are a few meters away, but when you hit the sweet spot, it's really really nice :-)

I love the first shot and the hoverfly. What a great deal you got on that lens. Really nice series.

Glad you like, Susan! :-)

The lens was a steal! I had just lost out on an auction for the same lens, which ended at about 32 including postage, as I'd forgotten to stick in a high limit - found this straight after and put in a best offer for 26, which was accepted :-)

Can't wait to experiment with it more!

I assume the 50mm 1.7 is a Pentax lens not other brand!?

Nice series... macro-like quality .

If this is you getting used to this lens I wonder what you do with it when you're finished doing that!
