Having finally bought the DFA150-450, I now have the full set of DFA zooms.

Yesterday I took the humble 28-105 on a trail run around my local hilly circuit. It's usually a pretty quiet spot, but this time there a few punters running the other way. Several hundred in fact - they were nearly halfway through the gruelling 56km Yurrebilla Trail ultra-marathon.

Anyway, I was very impressed at the focus hit rate of this humble "kit" lens in combination with the K-1 Mark II. Here are a few.

28-105, 15-30, 24-70 and 150-450? According to the Lens Clubs Index all but the 28-105 have their own Club.

Cross posted in "Post Your Photos" "K-1 images" "Waterfalls and Moving Water"

K-1and DFA 28-105

High Falls on the Nipissing River. I can tell you where it is, but you probably can't get there. it's in the middle of Algonquin Park, fly ins aren't allowed, it takes even an experienced young fit tripper a couple days to get there, slogging though rocky shallows and bog and few small lakes That give you a few minutes away from portaging every now and then) and some very rugged long dangerous portages, including the famous "Heart Attack Hill."

It's beside a 1300 meter portage, there are no short cuts.
