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.
(NOTE: If you click on the small images in my post, you should get a larger image in a new window.)


  1. I love Amsterdam, and you've done a great job of capturing it here. What do you estimate the street price to be of the 70mm pancake lens? When will it become widely available in the US?

  2. This lens is in my wish list... I love its compact construction.
