Standard-zoom bad rap?
5 months ago

I managed to nick the DA18-55WR off my daughter for a while, just for fun and to see whether everyone is right about dumping on this lens. After all, she basically has my Sigma 17-70mm and SMC-F 50mm/f1.7 "on loan" and I think I'll never see them again...

I had fun with this little piece of plastic dangling from my K-5 IIs yesterday, I have to say that as long as you stick around f8 or so, it aint half bad! Took some time getting used to such a light lens though. I might even end up keeping it hostage against return of both of my lenses (yeah, how effective would that be  )

These are all HDR's due to the weather yesterday and the awesome cloud formations I did not want to end up losing to overexposure.
