Yard BIrd +
Lens: Bigma 50-500 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Texas ISO: 3200 
Posted By: Rupert, 05-11-2011, 08:18 AM

I have been playing with my Bigma and dialed in +3 in the lens adjustment....I do believe it is giving me sharper shots?

1/125 F7.1 ISO 4,000 @ 500mm

Young Male Cardinal

The red is very slightly off, I used Adobe, but could get it spot on with Silkypix or the Pentax software (which is Silkypix), no doubt.



The Plus?......a couple of Squirrels!

Do I look corny, eating corn?



Or do I just look plumb handsome!



My vote.....you just look "plumb handsome"!

Best Regards!

Absolutely it rules! Speed without noise...every shooters dream come true! Thanks Pentax, we needed that!

Best Regards!


BTW- Nothing personal here, but when you comment, try to say a word or two about how handsome the Squirrels are. Not necessarily how good or bad the shot may be, just how handsome and good looking they are. They read these threads and are very vain little fellows......if they don't feel they are admired, they eat more, and it costs me a lot more cash to feed them.
Thanks!

Looks super sharp to me, Rupert - the detail in the cardinal is outstanding. Impressive, man.

Thanks Bob, Jer..... I think the last Squirrel here has to be one of my all-time favorites, it just pleases me......even more if I could have got his big feet in the shot!

Best Regards!

Rupert, you forgot to mention how "handsome" he is, just a reminder. Bob
