It won't be a very good review using old lenses, not that they aren't excellent, I am always please with the results from all of the old primes I have, although in all honesty I have
Only published pieces shot with the 35mm and the 120mm Macro.
I wish they had gone longer on the Macro than 90mm, even considering it as a portrait lens, something in the 150mm to 200mm might have been more useful.
Anyway, I hope you can get your hands on a 25mm If you get to do a review, by all accounts it is excellent, I played with one briefly In Paris, at the time I thought, it was nice, no better than my 35mm AF and in retrospect, I guess that's pretty good! Since i crop a bit, the wider 25mm will be a welcome addition to my bag. I especially love the fact that it has a Slot for a CPL; as believe it or not what lenses for what system has influenced most of my system and lens choices always, as I can't imagine not shooting with one.
If for some reason, there is a Phase, Hasselblad, D800E, Pentax 645Z mega shootout/review on the site, it would only be fair to use the newer Pentax digital lenses!
It sounds like the new version has a few nice changes.
being a bit faster is one of the things I am most pleased with.
The dramatic ISO increase Is something that really got my attention as ultra long exposures for some night sky photography will be a welcome feature for me.
At any rate, I'm sure I will be in the queue early for the new body!
We have had crap light for a few weeks here, but hopefully in June we will get back to perfection and I'll be on kauai shooting for most of the summer, pert of it I hope with the new body!
