DA 50mm contes:t Ferns in Redwoods
Posted By: DonnaMarie, 09-01-2014, 09:26 AM

To be sure I would like to win the DA 50mm prime lens offered by Larry aka crewl1. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I have always had a camera, from a childhood Brownie Starlite and a 620 Box camera, to my father’s old 35mm Minolta. My 30 plus year love affair with Pentax begin in 1979 with a used K-1000 sold to me by a police officer friend after my Exa 35mm was stolen from my motel room at a major horse show. I upgraded the K-1000 to an SF10 and SF7 with zoom lens’. In 2005 I made the leap to Digital with the new istDS.(Since re-homed to a High School/College student with two lens for her photography classes) I have upgraded my DSLRs every two to three years to the K-30 and this June 2014 to the K-3.
I have never had a prime lens except the original lens on the K-1000, now a keepsake. I do have a Optio-90 WR as a“pocket”camera in my purse so as to always have a "real" camera with me. (I don’t have a Smartphone or I-pad/phone.)
This contest is a opportunity to get started with a prime lens. All of the reviews indicate that there is a lot of fun and innovation to be had with a small prime lens like the DA 50mm. I do realize there are some areas where a zoom lens is just not the thing; so this is an opening to learn a new photographic perspective, thanks to Larry aka crewl1.
Photo submitted was taken with the K-30 and my 18-135mmWR lens over Christmas, 2013.

No, security has been applied to the original submission so you cannot edit or delete. Would take a moderator to do it.
I see your photo.
