The K-5 II.s certainly captures detail

Here is one I took a couple of weeks ago. The spot I usually sit in watching the Kingfishers has steep sided banks and trees all round so is well shaded and can be a bit of a pain for lighting. However, the K5IIs + DA*300mm +1.7x AFA handles it well enough at F6.7 and handheld. I did try once with flash but all the bird images had steely grey eyes... not a good look at all.

Strangely, I have only seen any false colour / Moire effect on a few images, all of which were Herons, and even then only when shot at about a 45 degree angle to the side. On no other bird shots, even those with very fine detail, have I seen this so it must be something to do with the feather construction?

Which Herons give you moire? I've been shooting Great Blues by the 100s and have yet to get one with moire.

The only ones I have noticed it on are the Grey Herons on my local patch. I have a couple from yesterday morning still to process so I'll see if it appears on those. Great shot by the way!

Given that moire is an interference pattern, I would think that angle of view has a great deal to do with producing it. You can test this out for yourself easily if you have a laptop. Open up a blank page in a text editor and make the background a plain color such as white or gray. Now point your camera and lens at it from straight on. You should see a marked moire pattern (with any digital sensor camera, not just the IIs). Then walk one way or the other and replicate. You should see the moire weaken on one side of the image.

I had a look at a couple of Heron shots from early thursday morning and noticed the same pattern showing on some feather detail. However, I was able to remove it using colour noise removal in Topaz DeNoise, so it may not be Moire related. As the shots I have taken , where this colour cast pettern has shown up, have all been taken very early morning in lower than usual light levels, it may be a related to high ISO / noise? Not too bothered though as it can be easily removed.

...and here's the Heron. Bit of a Heron popsicle thing going on there too from the frost all over it.

Beautiful bird shots everyone. Cannot wait to get my DA* 60-250 back from Pentax service and put it to use on the IIs.

Fine shots. Boy, are the Gray and Great Blue ever closely related!

Nice elegant duck, this northern pintail!
Since this is starting to be a birding thread: with the Sigma 500/4.5, although this "common pond duck", isn't nearly as quietly elegant as your pintail
