Thank you for the kind words. Just picked up a Pentax K-5 I ordered, now to see if my photography improves!

If that were how it works, then I need to buy a diamond studded Hasselblad.

Enjoy your new toy.

A mere Hassie won't do. You need an 8x10 view camera. Solid gold with platinum accents and a custom built 8x10 digital back.

Nice shot mate---I think that instead of getting the Sigma (Bigma) 50-500 lens I'm now looking at your sigma 105,Tess's 90mm Tamy or the Pentax 100mm Macro.When the world of small presents itself in the warmer weather I think that I will get much more use out of a decent macro lens. Comments anyone? I'm all ears --charliezap

Here's a revamp of that shot!

charliezap you won't go wrong with a Sigma 105mm F2.8 Macro and they make a great portrait lens as well.

I'm thinking along the same lines. I'm keeping my eyes open for deals in macro lenses around 100mm but they don't seem very common.
