Hello to all Pentax lovers/owners & fans!

Today got another "Sleeper" lens a Tamron 28-300mm first version model 185D so now I own two "Sleepers"...a Sigma 28-200mm & this one!

I try it...& want to share with you the results that got...with it!:?

What you say/think about it...honestly!:P

Peace,

Alex 007:|

Second one!

Why such "Stranger" bokeh?

Thanks for the posts - I can see why it has a poor reputation. I like the first picture, but the bokeh in the later ones is very distracting. It's a lens that looks like it would have limited usefulness.

Thanks for your honest input...yes my first Son ( a Nikonian D-300 with various lenses combination.Nikon Y Sigma), also dislike this "Bokeh" issue...he likes much more my Sigma one:?

Here another example...with Sky as background...NO problem at all what you say?:?

Peace,

i've got to agree with harriet here. the bokeh is simply horrible. i wish the shots had better exif info in them because the second shot has nice bokeh.. what was the different aperture values??
if you want ''sleepers'' try some kirons

Shalom my dear Roy,

Yes you two are 100% completely right!

It's the first time that got such "Horrible" bokeh issue...but now I'm pleased sharing with you one of my photos which do yesterday...here it's simply much...much...better what both of you say...:P

Use 400 ISO 1/500 sec shutter speed & F: 8 that is what the exif say... of course transferred to my Picasa photo organizer > PSP-9 > FrameFun & back to the same Picasa folder for mail & share with you:-D

Dear Roy...Kirons (Old Vivitar's Series 1), it's almost impossible to get here, much more with Pentax bayonet mount...so decided to stop looking for "bargains"...what accumulated till today is enough/nuff...what you sincerely think about:?

Peace,

Dear Harriet & Roy,

Decided to add another example both were snapped hand held at 300mm (450mm DX factor), same iso, shutter speed & F aperture, as the previous same PP but in this one & add Picasa "Soft Focus" possibility!:P

Enjoy!

Peace,
