Lovely tones in this one Andrew, and I like the square crop.

Thanks both,

I won't bore you with the saga of what I went through to get a decent 135mm K mount lens, once I'd decided I wanted one! Despite the unpromising name, I'm convinced this is a good one. Most important, it seems to love the K10 with which it forms a well-balanced, if heavy unit.

In truth, 135mm is a bit "long" for my type of photography but I find that having one fitted forces me to look for different pictures.
Best wishes,

Great use of that excellent tree for the compo.

It is a liberating thing going out with just one lens, particularly a prime, and forcing yourself to make it work

I'm not good in technical matters)))) I can only judge by the picture. This - is good. The original image would give the information.
135 mm lens will be helpful. Congratulations on your purchase, Andrew
