"Iroiro, August 2006 (Ota-ku, Gotanda, & Shibuya)"

I should be focusing on specific areas, but I was testing an SLR camera body (Pentax ist DL2 - with a film lens (50mm f1.2) and I decided to toss some general photos from that camera-lens combination onto the wires.

My assessment of the Pentax 1st DL2? It was cheap - about Y50,000 - and works well in natural lighting, but I'm very disappointed in its performance under artificial light. My compact Ricoh and Olympus cameras do a much better job. The 50mm f1.2 lens I like - I wish it were an Olympus lens instead of Pentax though....
