Oslo using the DA 70mm ltd
Posted By: alehel, 12-29-2009, 09:44 AM

I tok a trip to Oslo today to buy some clothes and I brought my Pentax K200D and the 70mm ltd with me. I ended up trashing most of them as they weren't particularily good, but here are the ones I kept. Once again, I'm impressed with the sharpness of the DA 70mm ltd.

1/250, f/4.5, ISO 400, EV +1.5
We've had a lot of snow the last week and several cars have been more or less buried in snow because of the snow plows.

This woman was feeding the seagulls and it didn't take long before a whole flock of them arrived.

1/250, f/4.5, ISO 400, EV +0.5

1/500, f/8, ISO 200
When viewing this image at full screen I was really impressed by the details in the picture. I could actually see what people were doing inside the building, something I'm not used to with previous lenses. This lens has great resolution. Makes me wonder how much more I'd be able to see with the K-7 sensors 14 mp.

This picture of Obama is hanging outside the nobel peace prize museum in Oslo.

I hate taking pictures in winter. It's such a hassle to get the snow correctly exposed.

I don't think that Gallant will get out. Nice shots and good to see the streets from the other side of the world

That's a lot of snow.
Yep, it does pose exposure problems - may as well have EV+1.0 set as your new normal for winter.
Last one's a sharp capture.
