Most talked about lenses on this forum (my guess), the 50mm f1.4, the DA 18-55 and 50-200, either Sigma 75-300mm and this 24-135mm. This is probably the most praised and reviled lens available for Pentax since a very high percentage of them do not work properly electronically, but those that do take great pictures (especially at the wide end).

nznhut, I must repeat how impressed I am with these shots, especially the first one. I can't wait to see more.

I also keep a Tiffen UV filter on this lens because of the very large front element. Since it is a good quality filter I do not think it degrades the image much. I have a UV but haven't used it much.

I live in Salt Lake, but fortunate to have a brother who lives in Monticello, Ut, which is an hour south of Arches, and on the doorstep of Canyonlands and Monument Valley. That area of Utah, as well as Zions, Bryce, Goblin Valley, Capitol Reef, is truly magical. Only an hour away from Cortez, Colorado and Mesa Verde. I have included4 more from the outing. Thanks again for everyone'ssupportive comments.

How did you get that boulder to balance on top of that formation? Great shots. I'd like to bring those geologic formations to my neighborhood to practice on.:lol:

All awesome! Your photos make me want to visit that area even more (we had a trip planned for this summer, but canceled when the price of gas went through the roof). Keep posting them - love looking at that area.
