Random Test Shots - DA* 55 F1.4
Posted By: legacyb4, 08-12-2009, 08:35 PM

Dugrant135 and I met up last night for a quick lens swap (his DA 40mm for my FA 35) and I had a chance to test out his new 55.

Shot at dusk, handheld so not ideal testing conditions but was still impressed to shoot with the lens. The exterior color aside, it's like a baby brother to my FA* 85mm down to the teacup-style hood!

F1.4 | 1/80 | ISO 100


F1.4 | 1/250 | ISO 100


F2.0 | 1/160 | ISO 100

Is this a permanent swap?

Significantly more impressive rendition at f/2, though that's much to be expected.
Thanks for sharing.

No, not a permanent one. We've just happen to live in the same area and have different lenses so every so often we get the bug to try out a lens from the "other guy's camera bag".

For both of us, these lenses are dormant and not being used much so it was a good chance to have a little fun.

Decided to bring the DA*55 F1.4 to Japan. Pics to follow... in a few weeks
I think the FA35 F2 and DA*55 F1.4 will make a killer combo for all I'll be taking while travelling.

It's pretty cool how we can test out each other's lenses. Sure makes things cheaper in the long run!

Great shots again

So you leaving the DA 35 macro behind after all? Darn, I should have borrowed that one too! ;-)
