Thats a couple of cool customers you've got by the look of it Norm, I especially like no.2 - that DA* 200 is a pretty sweet lens it would seem!

I was really reluctant to buy the 200, but I absolutely love it. Both on the K-3 and the K-1. The trick to #2 is that I am down a hill from the dog, meaning I'm shooting at eye level or just below. Obviously that's easier to do with a longer lens. How far down hill can you be if you are 5 feet away from the subject?
