Maybe I need to switch.
My studies have shown that 8 out of 10 New Holland Honeyeaters prefer to be photographed by Pentax. K-3 + FA*300 f4.5.



K-3 + DA-L 55-300

Of course! Honeyeaters are a species apart, just like Pentax.

This seems to supersede my study showing that they prefer the Pentax K-x and Bigma combination:

My studies show that deer prefer the bokeh from a K-3 II with the SMC A ☆ 400 F2.8 ED[IF] with Pentax F 1.7 AF adaptor! Haha! Great photos you two!

Shown before elsewhere - any Pentax works with the Honey eater: K20D with 50-200 - (sorry a bit short for the topic but wished to join the Pentax Honey Eater festival).

I'd say it complements your ongoing research into the photographic preferences of pardalotes Craig.

Nice shots. Are the plants kangaroo paws? (For our non-Oz members, yes that really is the name of a group of plants).

what he said +1

My own studies on New Holland Honeyeaters actually shows that they prefer to be shot with Pentax KP and Sigma 150-500;
(posted previously, but in the interest of science ...)

Stunning set of images Daniel. They are all excellent but the herons seem to have a 3D quality.

Thanks. I find that the 200-500 creates that “look” as long as there is some distance between the subject and the background. I find the rendering nice for a zoom lens.
