Just a few weeks ago I got a chance to get a used SMC Pentax Manual 135mm f/3.5 lens from a fellow (and undoubtedly a very nice person :)) PinoyPentaxian, Sir Joey Reyes. Even though it is already used, I could say that it was in real good hands (and hopefully I could give to it the same care :)). It doesn’t even have a scratch. It turns silky smooth when focused. No dust or whatsoever foreign material on it. The moment he handed me the lens I couldn’t resist but to smile..like this 😀
For almost 2 weeks since then I have been trying it out on my Pentax K-x. My Nikonian friends couldn’t believe that a lens with that focal length could get that compact, small, light and sharp, just 6.6 cm in length and weighs just about 270 gram 🙂 It really is an eyecandy..especially with K-x’s small built 😉
Just this last Saturday I went to SM Mall of Asia to scout for a camera backpack. Luckily when I get to the mall’s activity center a dance competition is about to start, titled Groove Dance Competition. Still, more luckily, my 135 is on cam, just right for the situation since I can’t go near to shoot using my 50mm (maybe I’d be next to the dancers if I’d do so..LOL :D). The place was crowded so I took shots from some few meters away.
Here are some of my newbie shots. Pleas bear with me.. LOL 😀
As of now I’m back to my nifty fifty as it is much lighter as a photowalk lens but 135 will always be on my pack in case the need arises.
I will be posting more of my shots soon. Hopefully this already 3-week running busyness of mine would come to stop for sometime so I could have more time to think of a theme for my future posts. Thanks everyone 🙂
