Nice shots, can't pick between 2, 3 or 4. What's with the cage over the bird nest?

I'd been after one of these for a while but the price in the UK is a little more than I wanted to pay. Got a pristine copy off (US) Ebay for $70 while I was staying in SF last month, and I'm very happy with it..

(K-5, light PP, various apertures but generally not wide open)

Paid 58 for mine, a tad dear, but I absolutely love this lens already. Take a look at this boring shot of a seagull:




Is it just me swooning over a new purchase, or is there something about the way this shot looks that is just amazing? It's a crap shot, but something about the texture to it... I love this lens

I am always impressed with the image quality my M200/4 lens delivers on 35mm film.
