Couple of shots with new toy (da10-17) (5 shots)
Posted By: vievetrick, 05-16-2009, 08:05 PM

Nothing to exciting but wanted to share a couple of shots that I took with the DA10-17 I got the Friday. So far I enjoy it. I had a chance to rent one a few weeks ago so had time to play with one and tell I liked it. I am in between two editors and not sure if this makes the difference this one seems a smidge not as sharp as the one i rented. I think honestly that is just me and the porgram. Time will tell. WARNING DEAD PIG BELOW!!

went to local farm that was having a Pig roast/Bloomin Festival. The combined it with a little tag sale as well. Only a couple shots and comments always welcomed.

cool 85year old guy that has collected buttons for 200 years he said.

The pig's head reminds me why I'm a vegetarian!

Yes, a lens like this is a wild beast and will take a bit of reining in. The shot of your daughter brings out one of the great things about really wide angle lenses - that sharpness you can get through the whole image. And by moving in you've tamed some of that curved horizon. Enjoy, enjoy!
