A composite image of six shots (3 interceptors, missle, moon, stars) merged in photoshop. For the Pentax User Group fortnightly competition. Pentax K20D, AF 500 FGZ and AF 360 FGZ flashes, SMC-M 100mm f/2.8 lens for all images except the moon.
Cool!

It's the opposite of the 40-80, superb handling, easy to focus and sharp wide open throughout the zoom range...

Kx + Pentax M 40-80/2.8-4.0

In Macro Mode, one stop down, tight crop. I want to love this lens, colors and sharpness is there, it just takes so much effort to coax it out of the 40-80

Yeah, I know what you talk about. But I have to say, that focal length has a lot to do with lot of things. Some times at 75-80 these lenses are neck to neck. but M 40-80 takes more effort. Here is some shots with M 75-150/4.

(superb shot your last one!)

Rick - looks like you're able to squeeze every drop of performance from that 40-80! Nice job.
repaap: Nice ones, the M75-150 is an incredible lens. Sorry to say I don't give mine anywhere near the use it deserves I should get it out right now while I'm thinking about it!

Paul, Thanks!

Yup, M 75-150 seems to be quite nice. I haven't really have time for it, but what I have seen is good so far. I'm waiting for weekend to do some serious stuff(not too serious with these M zooms.

When using an M zoom, what do you set the focal length to? Do you guess where you'll be doing most of your shooting and plop it in the middle?

That's pretty much what I do & it seems to work ok so far. Mine spends a lot of time on my *istD, so setting FL isn't a problem (no SR)

Thanks Paul and I even have to admit that last shot with the 40-80 looks good But I have to give repaap credit, who also uses the 40-80, for giving me advice and motivation on this quirky lens!!!

If there is a setting right in the middle of zoom I go with that, otherwise I will pick the next higher FL available. I will also, for instance on the 75-150 set it at 120mm for both SR and my way of remembering which lens I used (since I do not have a prime 120). The only time I've noticed any problems with SR and FL input, I was using a 35mm prime but forgot and left my SR at 120m it seemed most of my images were a little blurry...
