great shots
that lens is rated as good as it's big brother the *28-70/2.8..
it's amazing what 1 stop will add to the size of the glass.
you also may want to get a pentax 35-105/3.5..
fantastic lens but is MF

Yes, Roy, this lens feels as cheap and flimsy as the FA 28-80mm f3.5-5.6 but takes pictures like a much more expensive lens, I really like it. Thanks for the comment Rodney.

Ira - your car shots show us a unique view - lovingly captured with so much attention to detail, to composition, and to perspective. It's not at all what I would think to photograph, but it is great to see the results of your talent!

Thanks for the kind words. I think I will probably try this approach with other subjects as well (I have tried a few in the past but now may be a time to take some snapshots as a record and then concentrate on the details).

The old FA 28-70mm f4 has decent close focusing and a fair amount of control over depth of field. I didn't use the FA 50mm f1.4 because it does not focus very close and lacks flexibility in tight confines.

I went through some of your other albums too. No clue which lens were you using as the exif have all been striped. Impressive use of the lens in your capable hands. Job well done
