Sainte Anne River. Sharpest image I ever took.
Lens: DA* 50-135 mm f/2.8 Camera: Pentax K3 III Photo Location: Quebec, CANADA ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F8

The original full-resolution image is a beauty to behold ! The DA* 50-135 mm f/2.8 zoom was set at 75 mm FL and f/8 and the K3 III was mounted on a heavy tripod. Perfect combination with early morning summer light.

Wow, you are right about that. It is razor sharp, with beautiful greens and blue colors. I have thought a lot about that lens lately. I recently missed a golden opportunity to pick one up for a very low price that the AF wasn't working but was otherwise in excellent optical condition. I knew that it could be converted to screw drive. Unfortunately, someone beat me to it.

Agree with you and Todd, a very sharp image and also a nice composition. Good, rich greens and blues in the image. I don't have the lens. I opted for a Sigma 50-150, f2.8 zoom when I needed a fast lens for indoor volleyball. The 50-135 showed its worth in this image.
