Cheers, since I got it I sort of forced myself to use it to get used to it's quirks. I love UWA lens and really missed the Zuiko 9mm from my Oly so this is a great alternative.

These were a lot of fun to view. Wish there had been a little space between each one as my old eyes could have taken them in a bit better. The lens produces a nice starburst as well.

I rented one of these, and now BH has a very good deal on this lens. Seeing your pictures is really pushing me to break open my piggy bank. Nice work across a variety of subjects.

It's a great little lens and gives a great starburst stopped down a little bit. I'll put a gap between the next lot, cheers ��

Thanks mate, it works well for what I like, nice and wide and allows me to get very close.

Do it mate, you won't be disappointed, its hardly left my camera since I got it. I watched them for a while and got a good deal on one on eBay, I couldn't resist

Being Boxing Day yesterday Adelaide pretty much shuts down, I went to the movies with the Mrs and kids, when we came out the start of a massive car cruise was happening, (Jaf's Bored after Xmas Cruise), I quickly took the Mrs home and went back (only 10 mins from home). It was the biggest gathering of muscle cars/streetmachines I have ever seen, Tea Tree Plaza is a huge shopping center here, there were cars as far as the eye could see and surrounding the whole place, over the road, the side streets, servo, it was crazy. The pano shows a small part of what was there. At 8 pm, people started the cruise, down to Port Adelaide, along the beach and to Marion shopping center.
My camera and tripod was in the car and all I had on it was the 10-17mm fish, I left in such a hurry I forgot to grab more lenses

I think you may have pushed me over the top in my decision on buying this lens.

I love those cars, I love the serendipity of coming across a cruise in. I really like seeing the cruise-ins from Australia, because there were some cars that lived on there after US automakers discontinued them, and other models that are unknown here. Great colors, chrome, classic lines!

I really like the longer exposures and motion, very creative and well captured.

Please consider putting some of you shots in this PF group: Car loving Pentaxians - PentaxForums.com

I have posted a few things there in an effort to keep it going , maybe renewing some interest.
