I don't usually visit here, but on finding an older shot with the Tac 55/1.8 taken with my K5, thought it was time. I don't remember which model Tacumar was used, but it was taken at 1/640 sec
A very nice shot, Arnold.

It demonstrates the pastel-like rendering that Taks are known for.

Artistic with the light coming through the leaves. I like the simple background on this one.

I like contrast between the edge and the central portion of the leaves. I think this would also look nice in monochrome. By the way, I love that Tak, Feels like a surgeon's tool.

Gorgeous shot. I recently picked up both the 55mm f1.8 and the 50mm f1.4 and have been out and about with the 1.4 a few times so far. I've always liked the solid feel of old Pentax glass and the Taks are no exception. These are both with the 50mm f1.4.
