K3II/DFA 150-450 for Wildlife

I have had the DFA 150-450 for several weeks now and am finding the zoom range to be quite useful for wildlife. This lens also pairs well with the HD 1.4X TC. The Grizzly bear photos from Jasper National Park are with the 1.4X TC.

I'm glad to hear you used the TC for the grizzly. That second one's kinda scary!

Very encouraging photos ! The mean looking girzzly photo (2nd one) is a very good capture. You certainly need the 1.4HC to keep distance from the grizzly.

While the grizzly wasn't concerned about me, I kept close to my car when taking those photos.

These are all beautiful pictures. Did you take the trumpeter swan hand held or did you use a tripod?

I used a monopod for the swan picture.

Mega-super-awesome shots!

Did you use monopod for all of them?

I have a Pentax 300mm and a DFA 100mm Macro. I think this zoom is going to be by next big investment.
