Yeah I wasn't getting anything like the stuff on this page from mine. I sent it back to Amazon.com and requested a replacement which should have been here today. I never got any tracking info so I called them yesterday and after 45 minutes of one of the most frustrating "customer service" phone calls I've ever experienced. They told me that my replacement order was cancelled because there was a change to my address that was made which invalidated the address that I made the first order with. The address was never changed, just the name so it showed that a different item that was ordered was coming to my son with his name on it. Then when I tried to order a new one they said it was backordered and I wouldn't get it until October....a serious group of Idiots on the other end of the phone yesterday. @AdrianM or @noelpolar care to post any heavy crops of the birds in your photos?

Any thoughts if the other Pentax T/c would work with this lens? 1.7 or 2.0 ?

I look at these images and wonder why this lens isn't called a DA*. It's definitely sharper than my A-400.

My 150-450 in k3 did not have to make any adjustment, but in the K3II I have to +5 and goes perfect focus.

I did some shooting last night with my Sigma 70-200/2.8...... felt so light and tiny! Funny what normal becomes after a while.
