Default Day hike with A-700 and KM28-75

My wife and I hiked to a sea cave and I carried my camera to get some pictures of it.

This was the starting point, we had to hike down and over the cliff you see to a U shaped cove.

Also got a picture of a five spot wildflower along the trail.

Coming down the cliff you can see the cave.

The combo of the A-700 and the KM 28-75 f/2.8D is great for a day hike. It's not that big, it's light and the range is excellent for all kinds of different shots. It also focuses very close for some decent up-close shots. My biggest complaint is the lens creeps out to 75mm while your walking. A zoom lock would have been nice but it's a small complaint for an outstanding lens.

Thanks for looking
