Thanks, Mark.

 

I have grown attached to it! :lol:

 

Just like I regretted selling off some of my Pentax gear, I think I would really regret selling this lens.  When I use it, I have some fun with it.  The bokeh is as funky as it gets, it is light and believe or not, fun to use.  Challenging as it may be.  And, the reach is nice.

 

Images are so-so, but you can really get a nice image under the right lighting conditions.

 

I think, I might like the newer version of it better, it has the orange stripe and can do Macro.  More expensive as it is much more sought after.  Might look for a deal on one of those.

Good to read that you're keeping it, Art!

 

Always fun keeping the "old stuff"... makes it extra challenging!

 

:rolleyes:

May eventually sell it.
