I went for a walk, and it was very, very contrasty sunlight (winter sun and not a cloud in the sky), so I took the opportunity to test the contrast capability of the Pentax K-x and the 35mm Macro lens. They did really well.
I like these two pictures which came out of it.
... And the lens is damn sharp, as Mike Johnston said. (He called it a "paragon".) I admit that sharpness is pretty incidental to artistic expression, but, well, I simply get a kick out of it. If I get a bigger home some day, I'll get a really big printer, just to enjoy the quality of images modern cameras can produce. Lord knows, back in the day I'd have killed for this quality.
Sorry, TTL, I did it again, I blogged again about the progress of technology. I can't help it, I write about things which make me feel stuff, and tech progress gives me joy.
