Before I decide whether to switch back to Pentax gear I need to decide on what focal lengths I would likely want and see if Pentax has the lenses I want. Since 40mm is the longest focal length I have at the moment, I took a picture of the trees on the horizon with that limited 20-40mm lens. Note the trees in the center of the first picture that are furthest away. The second picture is a crop from that center portion of the first picture that I then up-sized to make the version you are looking at. See the birds in the trees? Now I have an idea of how much zoom-cropping I can do.
I made this check as I was trying to decide whether to get a zoom lens or the 70mm limited prime lens. Based on this check and some ideas of what I might be photographing, I decided to try the 70mm prime lens. My thinking is that I might do some of my walkabout and Homewood photography with the 70mm lens and the camera-lens combination wouldn’t be too heavy.
