In normal day to day use impressive.... but tonight a real exceptional opportunity...

"A" (50mm 1.7) lens with AE only on the K10D's part.....

But what astounded me was how FAST AND DEAD ON the AE was, in a rather exceptional "instant" circumstance....

further detail and images here....

Hayward, Those are some of the coolest fireworks shots I've seen. They are not at all typical and really grab your interest!

Yes and TOTAL accident they came so unexpectedly fast and furious barely had chance to even change apperture a bit let alone actually change lenses. And stuck with LITTERALY just picked up from the PO lens I had NEVER dealt with in my life` before that moment....(would have liked some wider)....I had been playing with.... but boy talk about an ACID test for for a lens never touched before/experienced, and a very capable K10D camera (Especially once you have JUST PLAYED with it a lot in unimportant situations).... YEAH WOW.

Sure a brand NEW (to me) lens... but now pretty well know the K10D body and capabilities.

And a recent thread reminds me of it being maybe too intimidating for someone.....

Only TWO thing required READ THE MANUAL.... AND THEN JUST GO PLAY!!!! for things/situations not at all important... then you will know how to deal with them when it is important and time critical.

The "FREE" (but battery drain) delete button is always there :-)

And honestly the "A" 2.0 are pretty darn decent too.... especially for the much lower price ( the 2.0 was $22 the 1.7 $80.... 1.4 and 1.2 get real crazy even used)) and just a half stop difference.... though interesting in the right circumstance and flat/near INF deep enough focal plane for the DOF drop to not be important... the difference 1.7 can make.
