Mirrored Macaws
Lens: The Legendary FA77 Limited Camera: K-5 IIs Photo Location: Disney's Animal Kingdom 
Posted By: MadMathMind, 11-15-2014, 09:57 AM

FA77 Limited @ f/4.0, 1/200s, ISO500

I think this is the best photograph I've ever taken; it also proves the huge amount of luck inherent in many great photographs. If I had known the birds were going to line up like that, I would have taken it again with more DoF! This is the first time I've ever seen moire on my K-5IIs. I was able to remove most of it, but some still remains, unfortunately.

I haven't owned it very long, but I see why the FA77 was the champion of the lens tournament. The sharpness and bokeh are otherworldly!

Thanks! It was luck that the birds turned in the same direction just as I was taking the photo!
