Massively impressed at your photo-skil in getting this shot. Tried it myself very many times but never got a crisp and clear image like this.

I will now start my quest again inspired by your marvellous work here which proves it can be done well.

Focus bang on the right bit too. Well done.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
