Just finished processing Saturday's images : K3 + FA 135 mm f/2.8 IF : SHARP !
Lens: FA 135 mm f/2.8 IF Camera: K3 Photo Location: Quebec, CANADA ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F11

I was trying my new "old" FA 135 mm f/2.8 IF. I wasn't sure it was up to snuff when I saw the first pictures taken with it, which were kind of blah! and dreary. My other FA primes are all extremely good and the more I use this 135 mm, the more it seems to perform equally well. The dead of winter in Canada may not be the best time to check color rendering as everything is kind of "blue" (Winter Blues ... lol!) and monochrome. I can't wait to try it in the Spring when plants begin to sprout new leaves.

Blue is the color of the day with a little orange. It is a nice sharp image which depicts the rough and chunky surface of the ice. Spring colors are something to look forward to. Nice capture of a blue winter scene.

The FA 135/2.8 has a permant place in my bag. It's small and light, very sharp and, at 200 mm equivalent, it's perfect for long landscape and long candid portrait shots in APS-C.
