K5 shoots for TopGear
4

I usually don't take photos of cars – I write about them for a job and rely on highly talented professionals to shoot them. It's a specialised skill, while I'm just a happy amateur who shoots landscapes and family. But this time I had the car for an afternoon several weeks ahead of the main press launch and there were no pro shots available, and I didn't have a photographer with me. So I did what I could.

Lenses were the DA15 (interiors and grille), FA28 (centre console), FA50 (statics by white wall) DA50-200 (action)

Ironically it wasn't me doing the writing this time, it was my colleague Tom, who drove it somewhere else and the embargo lifted at a time when I was frantically busy elsewhere. I wrote it up for one of TopGear's print editions.
