In June Leslie and I were on Vancouver Island and while there we visited one of our favourite city parks in Nanaimo, Bowen Park. Wandering around the park it didn’t take us very long to end up back at the unique resting totem poles that we mentioned in a previous blog post. This time I decided to give myself a little assignment and only photograph the totems using one lens only – a telephoto lens. I had with me the new Pentax K-5 IIs DSLR camera body and a number of Pentax lenses that were loaned to me for review on the K-5 IIS that I was working on for my Gear column for an upcoming issue of Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine. I paired the K-5 IIs with the Pentax-DA* 200mm F2.8 ED[IF] SDM lens, and since the K-5 IIs has a APS-C sized sensor the 200mm lens is equivalent to a 300mm telephoto lens on a full frame (35mm) camera. The combination worked really nicely and I got some great results with it. It was lots of fun doing my mini self-assignment and it is something that every photographer should do on a regular basis.
