Pentax DA* 50-135mm is my go to lens when it comes to visiting beach in the weekend. I have forgotten to bring in my flash for fill-flash for earlier scenes when the sun's overhead position creates lots of shadows on portraits. When I see the back lighting scenes, I am all happy.
While in the beach shooting some dogs portraits with Mervy, I find a lot of missing bird shot opportunities due to the lack of rich in the DA* 50-135mm zoom. I love the DA* short zoom and I am thinking of the possibility in getting Pentax DA* 60-250mm, I would have made more shots with both the dogs and the birds in the visit if I have that longer reach to 250mm.
I should have brought in my flash for the fill light to lighten up the shadows on the face.
