Errr... shouldn't that be 'Dog looks a stunner'?

Superb picture, though.

Rio has become a prop as opposed to a model for the next couple of weeks as a means to demonstrate the new DFA85's prowess

Jokes aside, this is a marvellous image Peter.

Zooming in you (or the lens!) have nailed it. Pin sharp on the doggie’s eyes, great result.

It's not the camera, it's what's in front of it.

Another nice couple of Rio portraits - the colours are so vibrant yet natural looking and the detail is excellent!

You're going to need a new camera soon Peter - you must have thousands of Pet Portraits alone, and that's without all your other shooting

1st image: Can't get it wrong with top subject material, serious quality glass on a Pentax body and some one who knows how to make it all work.

Stunning detail, composition and light.

Best regards. Stay safe.

I think what is going to define this lens is the way it transitions from in-focus to the out of- focus areas. There are better examples of it than I have demonstrated here. It is the same quality the FF LTD lenses display.

The secret of outdoor photography with him and his brother is for me to lay flat on the lawn, and wait for them to stop taking an interest in my camera and start doing "doggy" things like sniffing the wind

Yes, my favourite too. He caught a scent of something on the wind and went into track mode.
