Amsterdam with DA 70mm "Pancake"

I left Photokina Friday to spend three days with my wife in Amsterdam. As we both like to walk and explore, it gave me a great opportunity to test the new DA f/2.4 70mm "pancake" lens. The lens is from the final, pre-production run. Typically, these sample lenses exhibit the same quality as a full production unit.
I used the lens with a K100D. Photos were shot at various ISO's (from 200 to 800) and various apertures to see how the lens performed. All images were shot in RAW, and procesed in SilkyPix 2E.
