K-1 and 28-105

When I first bought the 28-105 ED DC WR last year, I feared that the relatively small reach of the lens would limit possibilities while hiking and doing nature and landscape photography.

I got it, however, because of its lightness, compact form and reasonable price. I was surprised by its image quality and it has become the main lens on my K-1.

In many cases it replaces the need to carry a longer tele-lens. Just an example of what the 24-105 and the high DR of the K-1 allowed for the buzzard that was circling high above me yesterday while I was hiking with a friend in the nearby French countryside:
