Posted By: xs400, 05-31-2008, 01:42 PM

Here are some of my first few shots with my new-to-me Pentax-A 50mm f/2.8 macro. I've wanted a macro lens for a quite some time and mine arrived in the mail yesterday!!

Kim,
Thanks for your comments. I posted the first shot of the watch to show the DOF at f/2.8. The focus was on the 'Q' in quartz, so you can see the DOF is very shallow at f/2.8. But at f/19 everything is quite sharp!

I also found out I need a new battery for that watch - it always says 10:55.
Frank
