If you dont mind the lowly FA20-35mm then:

All @20mm / K-7







Reasonably sharp @ f4 (ISO 800, 1/40th)



And same f4 (ISO 800 but 1/15th)

Could I sneak the 20mm shots taken with the Sigma 10-20mm in here or will the bouncer toss me? I find myself shooting on the 'long' end of that lens quite a lot.

Normally I would never join a club that is willing to have me as a member, but I'll make an exception in this case.

Some photographer friends of mine on a beach expedition. SMC Pentax-A 1:2.8 20mm. Single exposure, no crop, but with a fair bit of monkeying around in PP:

Does my FA 20-35 count if I only use pics shot @ 20mm?
As longs as it's Scouts honour, only used at 20 mm, we will be cunningly checking.

He may well be checking to make sure it's the 20 mm end that's being used exclusively.

Well then we all feel honoured.

Great sense of depth with that shot of the wide open spaces.

Love those (almost) empty shots that force one to go beyond the three seconds attention span!

Yes, I'm very happy with the contrast and the colors, and so far indoors very easy to handle and focus.I have to get outdoors to experience the wide wide wide. Soon.
