How does it do further away? I know it's not a landscape lens but I'd still like to see something of that sort from it.

Nice shots. Great imptression of space on the landscape, but I love the last one with the curve of the bookcase.

Thanks Daniel,



Yes, the door was an extreme example, i've tried some indoor shots yesterday-evening and they look quite good. I hope I have some time left this afternoon, the sun is shining, to take some landscapes. Someone some tips on how to use it with the Sigma flash ?



Richard.

I believe you would need an adapter for wide angle use. I do not have any Sigma flash. Likely there is some oem products. For Pentax AF360) , the widest is only 20mm

Well, we were in school this afternoon, as soon as we came out, clouds came in...

I'm still trying to get the fish eye pictures sharper, this one is a test. But I really like the colours,they are almost like my digital Kodak DX 6490

(EDIT: I looked at the exif, shutter was 1/8, iso 200, F22 out of hand, so it's normal that it is'not very sharp.)

But, if you would like to see how I spend my sunday:

And this one yesterday:

http://www.petrusenpaulusschool.nl/f...e1/joepie1.htm

And this one the day before:

http://www.petrusenpaulusschool.nl/f.../voorlees2.htm

*(This one with the Pentax 50-200mm)

All shot with the DL and the standard lens*. Indoor photos -most- with the Sigma flash.

Most of the photos on the webside are from my hand, it's more quantity than quality, mothers just want to see their kids, no quality wanted. But I do my best and I have some I really like.



Richard.

Its an excellent lens for the price. Its my second most used lens next to my Pentax M 50mm f/1.4. Sometimes the lens will not focus to infinity straight from the factory, but it is easily adjusted, and once set up correctly is very sharp. Software like PTLens will correct the distortion you get, although many times that is not an issue. I think it is absolutely worth buying.
