that turned out very well. Lots of crisp detail in the crop. If touched up with USM it would be sparkling.

i just posted the crop to give a rough idea of image detail.. a small bird would pretty much fill the frame no real need for any cropping at 15 feet.. useing the same lens at two feet would have just the watch filling the frame pretty near..

quite a lot of lens for the money.. and the little tamron converter dosnt degrade the image quality in any noticable way.. as i say hard to beat at any money..

sadly it dosnt say pentax only on the camera.. he he he
