When the photography gods are kind to you on the 1st of January you know it's going to be a good year.
Let's hope the Gods of Good Light smile upon you this year! Nice one, Dave.

K-70 + da 50-200 ed

First image taken recently with new K-70 and the DA 50-200

I photographed this landscape from the roof of a multi storey car park in Bury St Edmunds, UK. The white office block is about 200 metres away, the church spire 400 metre and the sugar beet factory chimney approx 800 metres away.

That lens takes an awful beating in reviews but sometimes it's a great tool for the job.

Thanks Uncle Vanya

I've had that lens along time and it's always performed well but on the K-70 it's gone up a notch or two in terms of resolution. Focus is faster too.

My very first DSLR (I started long before digital) was the K100D Super with the 18-55 mk1 and 50-200. I took that kit to Paris my first time there. The 50-200 was a good choice for the occasional detail shots. The light compact lens was a great addition to the 18-55 and I'm glad I had it.

Today I'd likely crop an 18-135 shot from my k3, but your pic speaks volumes.
