Himeji Safari & Amusement park : Pt.1

Last weekend during Golden Week in Japan a group of friends, the wife and I went to Hemeji Safari and Amusement Park for a day out. I've never been to Safari Park, although there is one back in Adelaide, South Australia (where I lived prior to Japan).

For this trip, I decided to take a few lenses for different purposes which included the Pentax FA 70-200 f/4-5.6, Super Takumar 135mm f/3.5, Super Takumar 55mm f/1.8 and the Auto Tamron 35mm f/2.8. The reason I took the FA 70-200 and the Super Takumar 135 was too just test out there differences in the field, from quality and practicality. I like the Takumar 135mm f/3.5 for quality and bokeh and the 70-200 f/4-4.5 for practicality and convenience.
