Great stuff! The colours and general sense of depth are awe inspiring. Im still waiting for my first canon so I can try out the C/Y version. If I can capture anything that even comes close to these pictures I will be a very happy man. Very Happy

I can't stop staring at that last picture, it feels like I could actually cross that road.

Keep em coming please!

Thank you for the kind words! I like the lens more and more each time I use it, so here are a few more examples.

Really nice work. I keep going back for another look.

A great lense, but you also know how to use it.

I'm pretty sure the amount of people searching for this lens on ebay has just tripled.

How do you find it on a crop sensor? Do you think you could cart it around with you all day as your "normal" lens or is it a bit too unwieldy?

I'm sorry; too bad the number of available lenses has not tripled too. It still is quite uncommon to find one. One usually just stumbles across one without specificially looking for it.

I would think it's a bit on the heavy side to act as a "normal" lens. On the other hand it balances quite well on my K20D + grip, so I could really use it as my everyday lens. The ~42mm FOV (35mm equivalent) is actually quite nice, but it must fit in your photographic style of course.

I should try it on my 5D (although I know it won't work well without removing the diaphragm lever, something I'm not really eager to do).

You make all your lenses look good, but in this case it looks as though you have a legend in the making. What stunning results

We have just moved and I was surprised to find roses in our new back garden. So here are a few casual shots with the SMC Pentax 1:2/28... Smile

All are gorgeous shots, but in the last set the white roses is my fave!

Really excellent.

I bet you could take a nice picture with a coke bottle. Not to take anything away from the nice lenses.
