This is a versatile light lens I love to carry. I get more photos with it because it is the lens I have with me. These were all shot RAW with differing amounts of post.






This bridge had bad purple fringe but photoshop took care of most of it.


I really don't like the bokeh which is often quite harsh as it is here.

Here´s mine

Museo Municipal de Cartago, Costa Rica, f/7.1 iso 400 1/320s, with a little post for sharpness and contrast. 40mm lens portrait was taken with a 135mm f/4 manual focus.

It's a legend on the K-1 - incredible image quality for such a tiny lens.

looking for a little help

I am getting a little tired of almost losing the press on cap for the 27 mm lens on the DA 40 XS F 2.8 lens

does any one know of a source for either a screw on or snap on cap???

I lost mine and got a step up ring and a 38mm cap. Even without the cap the step up ring is great protection. Mine was silver color and needed black paint or it created bad flare.

bathroom wall art is sharp.


This guy is spiritual about his pipes I asked about a photo by holding up my camera and he didn't respond so it wa a quick frame and press and got it in one quick motion.

Just street lights were enough to catch this and the DOF was just a little shy.

Both with K 200D - I really like colors they "produce".
