I finally got my first keeper after getting my K-70 a couple of weeks ago, I'm not counting all the 'test' shots to make sure I had no front/back focus issues with my primes.

I'm impressed with how well it performed under adverse conditions as I was shooting into a very strong back-light (bright early afternoon sun plus snow) and through two panes of glass in the window! I was using my DA 55-300 at 300mm, f5.8 @ 1/750 sec and ISO 200. I had to do some PP work to tone down the highlights (bright snow), crop out unwanted stuff and bring up the detail in the bird but overall it came out OK.

Something different with the FA*250-600 + K-1
No PP, except a slight crop...
Actually, it was a test shot before I shot the snow geese last weekend...

Carnage alert! Penguin lovers may want to avoid this post.

Leopard seals have to eat too... K1 DFA 150-450

It had snowed that evening, leaving a layer of slush on the water about fifty yards from shore. Rather than swim beneath the slush and surface right at the shoreline, the king penguins were surfacing at the slush line and splashing their way to shore. This made easy picking for the leopard seals. Once they grabbed a penguin, they would spin like mad and essentially peel the skins to access the strong pectoral muscles.

On my last w-e outing, I tried to make a video of the Snow Geese with the K-1
at the beginning I was using the DFA24-70, but the last sequence was made with the FA*250-600 (hence permitting me to publish in this thread hopefully!)
This is the first time I tried the video feature on the K-1...
Didn't really figured out how to deal with the focus, so be indulgent...

How about lurking less and posting more? I do envy the AF and lens availability of the Nikon.

I'll second that!

Although we might have trouble getting Travis outside right now. It is miserably cold. Did a bird count yesterday and the only things out and about were dippers.
