I saw The Subdudes play a great show last night at a local venue, the I Bar Ranch. Great intimate show!
K-3 & DA* 16-50




Acoustic set closer out in the crowd, playing for a woman in a wheelchair up close. Fun!

Some of my first shots with the DA*16-50 and although the light was harsh I was still able to get some keepers. I am still trying to decide if I like the lens of love it ?

All nice daytona9. I really like the #5, especially the colors. I have this lens, but have mainly done action photos with it.

Thanks Russell. It's a versatile lens - I've used it for motor sport and BIF with good results.

I just did a shot like that with the K-3II + DA*300 when people were leaving the Rogers Cup Tennis stadium...
Man, this picture is incredibly sharp, even at 1/200, f5.6, ISO6400! I can't believe my eyes!
(no PP at all on this one, direct from the camera!)








When I enlarge a bit, look at the details! (next are screenshots from Lr on my laptop)



And this is the 1:1 image on screen, this one still without PP,









and the 2nd one, with some PP (highlights, shadows, sharpness and NR applied slightly)







Conclusion: I should use that lens more often

K-3 and DA*200 ƒ2.8

Mostly ƒ8
Around 1/500s
Mostly ISO 125.

If you hang around the garden long enough (because you just got a new hip and you'e only supposed to walk 1000 steps a day,)




Sooner or later an insect will come and land right on the flower you're about to take a picture of. NO stalking, nothing, just stand there , pictures, like magic.









Then when they leave you can just go back to the flowers....
