Bokeh lesson by Pentax DA*!
Posted By: mikerigel, 05-14-2008, 06:31 AM

You just need to find a nice subject, a colorful flower will do.. and take the shot!
Here's the result:


1/1500s f/4.0 at 135.0mm iso100. K10D and DA* 50-135mm.

I love how sharp and soft it is at the same time.. definitely my favorite lens!!

Of course you don't need this lens -- You're waiting for the DA* 60-250mm f/4 !

THe 50-135 is certainly awesome, though. Depending on the 60-250 reviews and price, one of them will be my next telephoto purchase.
I think with either one, you can't go wrong
