Random Test Shots - DA 40mm F2.8 Limited
Posted By: legacyb4, 08-12-2009, 08:52 PM

Testing out the DA 40mm that I've borrowed from Dugrant. I've found that I really enjoy shooting with the DA 21 & DA 70 and was quite keen to see how the DA 40 would feel. Needless to say, I'm blown away by the diminutive size but incredibly sharp, contrasty images.

Random sampling from playing around yesterday and today.

LBA is biting... was considering the FA 43 to have the FA ltd trio.. but this lens looks great and will go well with the K-7.

Thanks for the posts
