Hi everyone. I just joined DP Review. I want to ask my fellow Penatxians a question. Back in the days of film, I bought the 85mm soft focus F2.8 lens. Ever since Pentax came out with the built in digital soft filters in their cameras, this lens has been sitting in my spare lens bag for years. It's in 100% mint condition, same for the lens hood. Question is, should I sell this lens? Or should I keep it as a nice little oddity. It's kind of rare since I hardly ever used copies of this lens turn up on the used market. But I have seen it occasionally on ebay. I even have the manual to the lens. Any thoughts on this?

Waw, i would say: definitifely a keeper. I'm looking for it for some time, for a resonable price but untill today, not found. I would advise: keep it, you won't regret that. And just in case you changed your mind, sell it to me ... :-).

btw, véry fine shot's and ... i don't think or don't know how you can get this with software, left aside the extra time to spent.
