DA 1.8/50 for sports ...

I had some time on the weekend during a business trip to Japan.
Took the K3 and the DA 1.8/50 for a walk and could get some shots at a ballgame sneaking through the fence (and hoping the ball wouldn't hit the lens ...)

I think so, I'm fairly happy with the results. It was a very enjoyable Sunday

Framing is excellent, DOF perfect, really successful series.

Agree. Nice samples!
I had this lens earlier, but seems my copy was not so good.

fantastic plastic for basketball

Have had this lens for a couple years and its main use for me is BB pictures. Thought I would share some samples from the last game of this season.
