No camera gear this year - but a lot of family and friends. This is an ornament on our tree...

Merry christmas

It wasn't a christmas gift per se, but I did get a new lens for myself in the last few weeks :-). Having used almost exclusively a 18-250mm for a number of years, I upgraded in the telephoto range last year with a Tamron 70-200mm and a 100mm macro WR, which basically renewed my interest in photography. I recently decided I needed (well ok... wanted) to do a similar upgrade for the range under 50mm. After a lot of deliberation, I finally decided a couple of weeks ago to get my first ever limited lens, the 20-40mm. I didn't get a lot of time to play with it since then, so this Christmas picture is one of the first it has taken.

Look and handling are superb, as is the rendering (the bokeh from some of the pictures on this forum is what sold me on the lens, and although I still need to experiment with it, I don't think I'll be disappointed in that department). From the little time I used it, peak sharpness doesn't feel as high as the 100mm or the 70-200mm, but certainly good enough for my needs.

With that, merry christmas, and may the light be with you all in 2016.

Coolest Christmas display I've seen: made from recycled bottles! There was another from clear plastic plates, hung next to a window, but I didn't get a chance to take a picture. And of course, an obligatory tree picture. All taken from the local botanical garden.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Abigail put out cookies and milk and catnip, and kept vigil, but still the old elf was too sneaky for her.

Home made christmas cookies :)

I hope it's not too late. I just shot it with my favorite wide angle DA 14. I got no Pentax stuff this Christmas, but I bought earlier this year DA 35 2.4 which serves me well. Happy new year!

Not a particularly interesting shot to others, but captures a rare quiet evening at home in the midst of a season of nonstop festivities.
