Free bump? Sure - mine just arrived a couple hours ago. This is an extremely versatile and fun lens!

These were taken from exactly the same location, at 12mm then at 24mm to show up-close aspect ratios for each FL:

24mm:


12mm:


24mm:


12mm:


Flower above @12mm:


Flowers below @12mm - they look like trees!


All wide open (f/4) & no PP.

jsherman: hey J, those pics were taken with this exact lens i'm trying to sell, right? ; )

ishino: shipping to, for example, California from Toronto will cost $25. I think price will vary depending on state, but generally at least $20. I prefer to keep it in Canada and not pay more for shipping, sorry.

Thanks in advance. Nice to be back on the forums after a while.

Both lens are very nice (you can't go wrong with either one - other than the price of course), but all things being equal, a pentax is a Pentax... there is something in it that I can't explain, perhaps, it is all in the coating or optics.

In the process...arranging with Ting on the logistics. When I see your list of fine lens, my LBA kills me.
