Another A* 85 shot. This one needed a little more PP to remove the purple fringing but nothing was done to remove any so you can see that it wasn't too bad to begin with on this shot. The lens can get pretty bad PF in the wrong circumstances shot wide open.

No she's not mine... once a year here they have a big Harley Davidson meet where folk come from all over Europe with their machines. It's called "Thunder In The Glens" held at Aviemore and sometimes I'm asked to go and cover it.

My biggest problems with the K's is that I can never remember the aperture that I took the shot at!

Thanks! F2 version of 35 mm focal length is also somewhere on my wishlist. But I'd prefer the K version (alt. A or M).
