Please excuse a proud first time Grandpa!! I picked up this lens awhile ago having preordered it from Henry's on a tip from leopold on the "other forum." I'm normally a landscape kind of shooter, but we had a new addition to the family at Christmas and it sure changes your photographic interests. So, I haven't really had the time to get out and shoot landscapes with the new 20-40 yet, with balancing work and new baby visits! So here is a shot from the lens anyway. I normally shoot primes and picked this up since most of my prime shots are in this focal length range. We'll see how it works out for kid shots!! Taken with the K3 and DA 20-40 at 40 f4.
Fotogaffer, glad you got that lens from Henry's.
Congrats, you're grandchild is so cute!
You will like that lens for sure.

Thanks leopold! I enjoyed reading your review of the lens on your blog. I share your opinions on the lens and enjoy having it very much. Look forward to getting out with it sometime soon!

the more pictures I see shooten with this lens, the more I wonder about the review written here in the forum. It looks, like this lens only needs to be shooten with.
Thanks for all those pictures!
