I agree these are really nice shots, and maybe I am misunderstanding your statement, but do you consider 70mm to be tele?
anything beyond 50mm is considered as a tele. even a standard 50mm would be a tele in a 35mm equiv. on an APS-C dslr. this is because of the 1.5x crop factor.

@Pentaxor: Thanks for the info - I wasn't aware of that.

I think someone did the maths once, and worked out 43mm (on 35mm film FOV) about corresponded to the human eye's point of view. That was the original logic behind the focal length for Pentax's ultimate "normal" lens, the FA43 Limited.

To get that on an APS-C dslr, you need a 29mm FL. Anything more than that is really telephoto.

I agree with Nostatic...the 77 on the K7 isn't as magical as it was on the K10 - for whatever reason I don't find it nearly as sharp, and it's definitely not nearly as contrasty.

Either way...I use it as a portrait lens and I shoot raw so these problems aren't really of concern to me. The images have the 3d quality still and the magic bokeh, which is what I really want.

FWIW, the FA31 on the K7 is heaven on earth. I love this combination.
