I had the original screw-drive DA 55-300, a good and noisy lens, my older daughter took over it.
So I am mainly looking to add the PLM to my KP travel-kit.
I've got the DA 55-300, but results from the PLM sure have me thinking about getting one...

My PLM shipped yesterday from Adorama, interesting to see if it is packed any better than my 11-18 from B&H was.

Speaking of the PLM, here's another shot with that version of the DA 55-300 of the Yellowstone River in Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone:

Looking at some of your images taken with the 55-300 PLM is making me seriously consider acquiring one myself. Beautiful photo in Yellowstone, by the way.

Thanks. The DA 55-300 PLM is a great solution for those looking for a compact telephoto zoom and are willing to give up fast aperture.

Very cool shot. Could also be used as an hors d'ouvres tray/shark cage (depending on whether one is outside or inside), too.

Wood Turning Christmas Ornaments

One of my wife's hobbies is turning wood with a lathe. Right now she is making Christmas Ornaments to sell at a craft's fair.

FA 50mm F2.8* macro, focus stacked. 1/4" at F8, iso 100. These type are called "inside outside" type because of the way they are made.

Tell your wife those are really cool ornaments. And nicely photographed, by the way.

Gosh your wife might be more talented than her photographer spouse!

Totally kidding, those are great shots. I've not played with focus stacking but need to. Very nice results.

New FA 50mm 1.7 lens for my KP

Just bought a lightly used FA 50mm 1.7 lens from fellow Forum member K'evo and my initial report: this is a fine lens. Compact, sharp, lightweight - and fast enough for quite a bit of available light shooting. Coupled with the KP's high ISO capabilities, I think it will be a keeper.

The first shot (taken with my iPhone) shows the lens on my KP; the second was taken while shopping, at a local pharmacy.

Nice capture! I hope to get a chance to put my PLM to work this coming Christmas.
