Very nice Max! These have a very painterly look to them, especially the first. Great light!

I was going to get this lens but wonder after having to lug it around all day if I would still like it as much.
Lightroom 3 to both sharpen and reduce noise, also I used On One Photo tools 2.6 to add warmth and reduced in Adobe CS5 to an acceptable level. DA star lenses are awesome in my humble opinion. The 60-250 has a little weight but I shoot most often hand held with no problems. Just keep speed and focal length numbers in mind and you should have no problems. There is a pentaxian that uses the K10D (he converted it to infrared) and 60-250 for portraits and he is doing some great work (just do a search for K10D Diva). I use 2 K20Ds and one always has the 60-250 on it while the other holds th 50-135. I would like to get the DA star 55mm and the 16-50mm if you have any experience with these lens pass on your comments. Thanks for your comments.

Max
