Really love the bridge composition. I would like some post contrast but that is my main problem with the 40xs. That last one has plenty of contrast though.
Thanks for the feedback, Yes I'm still learning my camera and the lens. I think it's better when I use spot metering with the xs and now I'm using EV bracketing +/- 0.7. I find It is better with stronger colours. I also find that at high ISO The IQ is noisier than some of my other lenses. For me though the largest prints I do are A4 and I hate doing PP feels like I'm cheating however I will crop and straighten. For me though the size of the lens lends it to be brilliant for just snapping away and weirdly I don't think much about the picture composition when using this lens I am a happy snapper.

Apparently only 5000 ever produced, sold only with a silver K5 Ltd edition. I tried to flog my one around the high $200AUD to low $300AUD but failed, this guy seems to be selling low $200's as well, so yeah weird that it actually doesn't really bring a price increase at least not at this point in time.

Here it was sitting on my Silver KP, made for each other!





FYI I bought my silver KP from the states, I was the the second owner, the man selling it was the Silver K5 owner.
OMG now I want one! I have two silver KP's

Well here it is, not me selling it but it's my very own one seen in the images above taken last year. This seller bought it from me, seemed to have a play with it for a few months and is now passing it on;
