I know it's a good zoom, the demonstration are the photos you published, sharp and with bright colors, good framing too.

You are referring to this lens: HD Pentax-DA 20-40mm F2.8-4 Limited DC WR Reviews - DA Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Good shots, Mario

This is the sample thread section, the lens clubs are a different section, since they have both, there must be a reason. I believe this is for purely sample photos and not lens discussion.
