A stunningly sharp photo which blows mine out of the water.
Looks like if you are also from Melbourne you took your pic yesterday, which was a beautiful Spring day.
I was out and about with my K1 and a 34 year old manual focus SMC Pentax A zoom 1:4 70 - 210 lens
Couldn't get nearly as close as your good self, but was able to severely crop to get my pic. I was really quite pleased with the amount of detail available even with such aggressive cropping
Looks like I can only do individual uploads of photos, so the first one is the before crop.

And here is the "after" crop

As I was saying, the amount of detail still available with such an old lens was greatly satisfying. I have heard it opined that the Pentax K1 was a a gift from Pentax to all the long standing owners of Pentax gear. I am inclined to agree.
