Nice shot. The detail is incredible. I wonder what the story behind the injury to the right ear.

Great shot Charlie! Could go right on an Easter greeting card.

Don't see many wabbits around these parts, must be because of the mountain lions and wolves.

It was between 16-50 or this lens and I chose this. Just having a good long zoom prime is has been a dream for a very long time...

Ror,

Well, somethin's gotta give somewhere. I have several lenses in the 300mm range and sold a couple of the Pentax's away this year. I was leary at letting this go... but how many can you put on a camera at one time?

I had so many lenses that I have obtained in my career that I tried to thin it down to thirty or so keepers. I have had to let some classic and treasured lenses go in the culling.

But I have gotten my hands on Pentax's rarest lens fairly recently and hope to produce some nice images if I can master the lens.

Stephen
