Pentax SMC~A 28mm f/2.8

This one of my first shots with this lens. I just got it and I am looking forward to shooting with this somemore. Focusing was a little hard ,but I think it handled well. Took very well to PP using Paintshop Pro X2.
Exif: Manual
Exposure: 1/30
Aperture: f/2.8
Focal length: 28mm(42mm)
ISO: 400

Some pix with my A28 f2.8. Still learning this leans. A bit strange focal length for me (not too narrow, not too wide), but much easier to get the focus than with the M50 f1.7 It gets really sharp around 3.2 or f4.

- first one is with 0,5 sec, handheld, f3.2, ISO 800
- second is 1/6 at f4, handheld, ISO 800
- third "portrait" is with 1/125, f2.8 and ISO 400

SMC Pentax A28mm F2.8

Here is a link to some photos I've taken recently with this lens. I'll be adding more to my Flickr account in the coming weeks. I'm finally starting to like this lens. I'm not a pro or anything but I think this is a great walk around lens for street photography.

Very gloomy day before work, had to take some photos to get a bit of a fix.
Just some quick samples from the K-r:

This thread is hard to find. Architectural detail @5.6 (still to shallow for decent sharpness on the protruding part).

I'm still in love with Street Photography (in my books it must be B&W too)... the tonal range achievable with the K1 and my "Street Lady" Pentax-A 28mm F2.8, is quite remarkable.
