I want to share my love for the M 35-70 f2.8-3.5, it's a gem of a lens. Here's an example, original and crop, shot with a K-5iis. It's from a jpeg with minimum pp. Cross post from the M Club.

Few shots with Auto Sears 80-200mm f 4.0 macro

This lens is clearly presented and labelled as a macro but is actually more of a close-up lens. The close-up shots with this lens may nowadays be rejected by many users as not sufficiently sharp, but I consider them at least usable.

SMC-Pentax M 75-150 at 150 wide open. If I do my part this lens newer disappoints me. I use it wide-open 95% of the time.

Until I purchased an HD DA 55-300 (the last screwdrive version), my longest lens was a Pentax SMC A 70-210 f4. Not quite as sharp as the 55-300 but the extra stop of light is useful and I prefer the colours of the 70-210.

Telephoto lenses tend to have smoother bokeh, even so, I prefer the 70-210's bokeh to the 55-300.



The combination of really poor lighting of the football field and manual focus meant that my "keeper" rate on this night was less than 5%. However, I would have had to use twice as high of an ISO setting if my maximum aperture was f5.6.


Finally, seven Trumpeter Swans a-resting, when the longest other lens I had with me was 135mm, This is cropped to about 60% of the area of the original.
