Great composition...well done. I've thought about getting a Samyang 135mm F 2. By the looks of this photograph, I would venture that you are pleased with this lens.

This was the first outing and the outing that sealed its fate in my kit maybe forever LOL here is a gallery from the outing, All shot with the Samyang 135mm F2.0.

Nice Mightymike, but, I recognized Bird Kingdon I suspect I've been there too often.

I took the Tamron 300 there earlier this year if you didn't see the pics.

Some great photos. I do like that Samyang 'effect'.

I'm now motivated to dig out my old Takumar SMC 135mm F 3.5 and M42 screw mount to bayonet mount convertor ....the old Tak may not be as fast...but I do like the 135 telephoto look.

I have the early silve and black preset Takumar 135mm F3.5 (5 element version) despite owning the Samyang I won't sell that one, its too good.
