DFA* 70-200mm - Ninth set of images - Morning walk around town
12

Went for a morning walk with the DFA* 70-200mm and K-3 - some images attached.

Heard from Asahi Man regarding my DFA* 70-200mm:

"Hey hey...you are only the first consumer with the first 70-200 in the consumers world
It is the result of a good contact with the Ricoh distribution.
A hand full of lenses are out in the world and you got it first
So, it is a serial production lens
It was clear for me, cause your lens is at 2.8 200 a big step better than my lens ;-)"

So the delay of the lens was indeed due to a mechanical design change to create a higher level of optical performance and not a re-design to improve handling issue.

Cheers

Very nice set of images. Thank you for sharing.

Did you apply a lot of post processing (contrast)?

Cheers, Hans

Hi Hans,

Glad you like the images.

Yes, I did increase the contrast a little in Silkypix.

Hi Asahi Man,

The good stuff are every where - just a matter of seeing them. And of course a great lens kick it up a notch.

You have yourself a real lens there. I think it is more important to get that lens than a new camera. Beautiful picture as always thx.

Hi Sleepwalker400,

Glad you like the images.

Agree - this is a definitely a "real" lens, no if or but about - an excellent lens.

But with the K-1, this lens will shine.
