First Shots With My DA*60-250
Posted By: Ari, 10-15-2009, 03:51 PM

After trudging through the rain, I finally got some time to play with my new lens. So far, I am impressed (but it is HEAVY!) Here are just some quick snapshots (all were converted from RAW and cropped for size):

F4. 1/90, ISO 400 @ 102mm

Donovan McPugg.

f4. 1/180, ISO 400 @ 250mm

Pangoban. I mis-directed my flash sideways instead of up. But I still kinda like it.

f4. 1/90, ISO 400 @ 68mm

My twin brother (and fellow Pentaxian)

f4. 1/90, ISO 400 @ 68mm

My neice's easel.
Thanks for looking!

Looks very sharp and well contrasted wide open.
An impressive lens no doubt.
