Nobody commented on my Gull shot with "Lady Luck" @ 1/4000s, F1.7, ISO 100, thought the F1.7 reported aperture might have at least raised an eyebrow on a F1.8 lens.

You may well be right, magic and pixie dust go hand in hand you know.

Missed this one! How did I do that! Nice bokeh background! Photoshop a shotgun barrel into it, that would be funny!

So, three years later and still no explanation how a lens with f1.8 maximum aperture takes pictures at f1.7? What is your fascination with avian vermin, anyway?

There you go someoneís on the ball...

Itís an unexplainable Pentax understatement of a high performance lens.

As for the bird, cos it was there in front of me.
