Some images not containing cats, in case a prospective owner doesn't have a cat:

K-5, light PP, ignore EXIF focal length - accidentally set to something silly in camera.

Nice shots! I have this lens, but the aperture blades are sticky (they don't have time to fully close to f/22 at 1/4 of a second). Should still be great at full aperture though.

This is a fun lens. I stopped using it when i was having manual focus issues with the *DL (thought my eye sight was going). With the K5, my problems are gone and I can focus accurately again with it. Go figure.

A little bit of vignetting added in pp.

All taken at f/2.4 or thereabouts. On a DSLR, using a really deep lens hood improves quality considerably at the wide aperture end. Wide open with a hood :

One of the gems of backwards compatibility. Amazing IQ for under $100, generally!
