Pawn shop lens
7

I recently bought a DA* 50-135 in a local pawn shop for $150 canadian ( $112 ) US. The SDM was frozen so I converted it to screw drive. I am amazed as to how sharp this lens is, especially at the 'steal' I got it for. And it's a great companion to my DA*16-50 (also screwdrive)

Reviews say it's not sharp at f2.8, but this one was taken at ISO 800 f2.8 on my K5

There is no one so lonely as a person without their PENTAX........I said that!
