I still think the Night Parrots mating would seal it. Thought for 100 years to be extinct until rediscovery in the remotest location. Maybe with a full moon behind.

In other words, I need an owl hatching with mum throwing bits of shell over the side, a lightning strike in the background and four Apostle birds looking on.

pentax 55-300 PLM: best in class for Digital Camera Magazine

I would guess back focus based on the ripples. I get this with back button focus when i don't let it up and shake a little. Focus finds new target before the shuttle clicks. When i am not shakey it helps but any jitters and i need to let the button go.
Still a nice photo at a small size. Not a scene you see to often.

I too have a bit of LBA, but for somewhat of a different reason from others in here. I like old photo equipment, over the last few years I have discovered I like collecting old camera stuff (Pentax biased because that is mainly what I have ever used)
I cut my teeth at the wee age of 12 back in 77, (Dad handed it down to me) on a Pentax ME w/M 50mm, f1.4 and a Vivitar 70-210 lens, (still have the M 50mm, will never give that one away, still use it too)
I actually have started to build a Pentax/old camera shrine(so to say)
but I also love using the old lenses and love the feel on them. I live in Vegas and there are tons of pawn shops and I am constantly stopping and going in them when I am cruising around town.
I would one day love to have a collection of Pentax bodies (complete from the beginnings to the start of the digital age)
I do however, love the newer lenses and use them mostly, love my DA* zooms. But I do like using my old manual primes especially on my K01 mostly. My K3 is my main workhorse and I use it mostly for "no nonsense worry free" shooting, so it gets all the automatic goodies.
I have many lenses and bodies I will never use but they sure look cool on my vintage photo equipment shrine/display, and I most likely will never get rid of any of them.
on another note, my daughters are showing an interest in photography and they will have access to any of my lenses in my collection.

It's been cloudy and windy in my area. Long exposure and BW help to keep me shooting under less than ideal light.

This staircase in a very old and historic building looks much better in mono.

The only Samyang lens I own is the 85mm f/1.4 in Sony A-mount. I've had no problems with it, except that the bayonet hood isn't a tight fit... it doesn't "click" into place, it just feels like it's held there by (very little) friction, and the hood itself feels "cheap". But otherwise, it's been a dependable lens for the couple of years I've owned it, and the rendering is lovely... Really, very good indeed. I hope I'll get more than another five years out of it, but I'd be the first to admit that the build quality doesn't compare to the all-metal lenses of old, nor indeed the higher-end models produced today. It's definitely built to a price, and I can believe QC isn't the most consistent :o

That is a LOT of money for something with a fungal infection. :(

Are these things rare enough to justify the asking price?
