Some say that the 3.5 is better than the 2.8. These shots indicate a very fine photographic sensibility combined with quality equipment.

I can't compete with any of the latter posts, or many of the earlier uploaded images either. But I have been mostly satisfied with a handful of results obtained from my recently purchased SMC Pentax-M 28mm f2.8 lens, used on a Pentax K-5, which I'm also only slowly becoming accustomed to. To be honest, I was extremely disappointed with the performance of the kit lens and its limitations have been cruelly exposed by the sensor and resolution offered by the camera. This was the main motive for buying an old M-series lens. The manual focus doesn't bother me at all, because my pictures are invariably better when I take my time over them.

With the lens in question, it does not deliver particularly sharp raw images straight from the camera and there is not a great deal to be said for the unprocessed contrast either. Therefore I've been setting the sharpening in Lightroom at around 60 and applying an 'S' curve. The following pictures are all of brick buildings and so a touch more clarity helped as well. The weather in my part of the world has been dismal and mostly wet for several weeks and so I haven't travelled very much at all. Hopefully things will brighten up fairly soon and my images improve as a result.

Around-the-yard shots at sundown (dull light) - - *istD + M75-150/4 (I think first two are wide-open (f/4), not sure about the last one.)
