Kx & DA 50-135 @ Port Douglas.
7 months ago

A few photo's from a recent trip for a wedding at Port Douglas, North Queensland, Australia.

This is one of the gateways to the Great Barrier Reef and I also posted a few shots from the WG-2 in the compact forum (including underwater).

The Kx has been my mainstay up till now and the day i flew out, I purchased a mint used DA*50-135 and a Sigma 50 f1.8. (A K5IIs, DA12-24 and Sigma 17-50 awaits me at home upon my return home next week) These were all with the Kx and 50-135.

I have trouble uploading from work, so without boring people with too many shots, here's a selection from this beautiful small port town.

Really great shots. I've been thinking about getting this lens, but not sure I want to lug it around. How did you get on with carrying this thing around on a trip?

Nice shots. I was up there recently and I recognise many of the scenes and plants. It is a great place to holiday.

Cane,

No trouble really. I came from film days and kind of expect that a quality lens is going to weigh a bit. This trip meant that most other lenses stayed at home because I did some background detail shots for the wedding, so it was my lens of choice and I just dealt with it.

It is a decent weight and perhaps some will find it an issue. It's no travel zoom like the 18-135, I guess it comes out more so for weddings, portraits and specialised work........

Some people opt for compacts and Nex's, other tourists will happily lug around a FF ???
