The seasons are so far out it's untrue!

These are popping up weeks before their time. They've had it if we get a frost!
I think the pop-up lens listing is wrong - it should read 70-210. And ignore the focal length - it was 70 (macro setting).

How lovely to see a spot of colour for a change. This is best seen large by the way.

Their growth is well advanced here too!

It is an underrated lens and thats because I also have one as well, so there
Nice Photograph and observation DavidWoz, I think it was the EL Nino year making the seas warmer in the Atlantic and the weather is still all over the place as a result

You are quite right Flan. This is a good example of latest, most modern, gizmo laden is best - or is it? How much is that Self Destruct Motorised 70-210 that is the current offering? This wonderful beast cost all of 16 - and it was boxed and it is in mint condition!
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

My version cost a hell of a lot more David but that was in 1987 or 6 I forget and still have the receipt , clear as daylight though to this day8 ( I store em right )
It works great with the K1 and the macro at 70mm is quite impressive, I tightened the precision screws uniformly and very carefully, hidden behind the lens barrel grip, a known weakness for movement
An easy job and I then could point up or down without the zoom forward or backward movement occurring when ones hands and eyes were busy with something else. I must take it out for a spin

Sheer quality - and has been said, from a very under-rated and often overlooked lens
