Backyard Bird, my first photo post!
Lens: 300 f4 Camera: K50 Photo Location: My Backyard ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/1000s Aperture: F4 
Posted By: BarnowlAnnie, 02-05-2016, 06:24 PM

This is my first picture post. I just got my 300 f4 lens in the mail yesterday! I decided to go ahead and update my lens. Later on I want to get a used k5ii, but for now I am very happy with my new lens. I wasn't out for long, it is pretty cold today. I hope the photo comes through. I'm still getting used to this lens and how to handle it. It is big! Ok, I've seen bigger, but for me, it is big!

That's a great first effort. I'm sure my first effort with y DA*60-250 didn't look that good.

Very nice female Northern Cardinal. What part of the Eastern US are you in? Is that a DA* 300 that you have?

Aww, thanks y'all! I'm in Kentucky. Yes, I have the DA*300. I had a hard time choosing my new lens, I probably won't get another for a long time. That 60-250 looks nice too. This was a huge purchase for me, not even sure how I talked my husband into it!

I might be able to buy one if I can sell some of my older stuff. But, on the other hand , I do have 18 distinct lenses.

Just 18? That's not even a mouse on a wheel. LBA says you need more.
