I took these snapshots Friday afternoon while visiting at my niece's house.

This is Amara, my Great Niece (my younger sister's daughter's daughter).


Hey, there's that guy with the camera again!





OK, I guess I'll look cute.




This looks like more fun.




OK -- one more and i'm sitting back down.

Jim,

These are very nice snapshots of a beautiful little girl with a very infectious smile.

The colors are nice and her skintone looks very good in your shots.

Were these taken with your KM 5D?

Yes. All were at ISO 400 with a Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D wearing a Minolta 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 on the long end, wide open at f/4.5

Here's the straight from the camera original for the last image (it will sharpen nicely), shot zoomed in all the way at 85mm, shooting with the aperture wide open at f/4.5, 1/250 second and ISO 400. EXIF under photo.

This is a very inexpensive lens, too (around $100 used). It's rapidly becoming my favorite walk around lens, with a useful 24-85mm focal range (about the same angle of view as you'd have using a 36-127mm lens on a 35mm camera).

It's only giving up about 1 stop on average at around f/4 to an f/2.8 lens (it's about half a stop down on the wide end at f/3.5 and about 1 1/3 stops down on the long end at f/4.5).
