After a wait of over 7 weeks, my Pentax brand 28-105mm lens arrived this morning. It is the first real Pentax lens for my 1stDS. Here is a copy of my first shot with the lens.

It is amazing sharp with a great deal of contrast and clarity.

Can't really judge since I don't own dSLR (saving for *Ist DS).
To me it looks great but a bit noisy. Is this a 100% crop perhaps ??

MattH-

Yes, the sample photo is a 100% crop and to post it the file size is only about 480 by 370 pixels. So an attached photo included with a post always suffers.

The lens is excellent. The cost delivered from www.adorama.com was $218.

Yes I wouldn't mind one of these for my film camera, good range, but alas I am now poor (see my post in Speaklightly's thread regarding anyone being awake)

By the way the 28-105 3.2-4.5 gets great reviews... ;-)

Sarah, you seem to post up a lot of photos around here. I can offer you some free image hosting if you'd like. Private message me if you are interested.

Many thanks for your kind offer, but I am going to be taking a "sabbatical" from this forum.
