I was using the K5. I used Lightroom for some basic pp with some, and those jets I used picasa before I had LR. There may be one where I used a plug in too to enhance a bit. I shot that lens all over Italy. Couldn't take it off because I loved how versatile it was. It can even do macro type shots very well. I picked up some Voigtlanders so I need to sell this as a matter of sheer prudence. I'd rather keep it. I just picked up a DA15 too so can't justify keeping the 17 wide capability.

Yes it is F4 constant, and with the high iso capability of the K5 series, you won't care either. I am amazed what we get away with using the K5 series.

uttam, I love the Voigtlanders and have a couple now. But I already traded the 43 for a DA15. All I have left is the 17-70. In excellent condition I might add.

A couple more shots with the 17-70 during my last trip to Venice. These were processed in LR and softened in Topaz Adjust.

I was first shooting the K5 with the fighter jets. The other planes and mountain are the IIS.

It's still available for $350.00. That's the price Adorama has offered me, but I wanted to offer it to a fellow shooter here first since I had already listed it here. I was going to ship it to Adorama this week if no one is interested. They already sent me the shipping label, etc. It's a great lens that I just cannot justify hanging onto at this point.

It's in the original box with all paperwork, both caps. I've taken very good care of it, and used it a lot given how versatile and fun to shoot it is. Focus is fast, and while it's light, it's well constructed.
