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.
I tried out a D850 with the new 500 f/5.6 at my local camera store the other day. What an amazing bit of kit that is. It just blew me away at how easy it would be to carry into the woods. Yikes!

Then I got the D FA 150-450. I just can't afford to switch.

Great pics BTW.

I am eyeing the 500 PF but will have to save for a long time.

Hi All, a first contribution to this group from me. I shoot with two qualifying lenses , the FA*300 f2.8 and the D-FA 150-450mm.
Attached shot is with the 150-450 and I used a KP body.
Do you have any pictures of your FA*300mm F2.8 that you can post. I would like to change my Sigma 300mm f2.8 EX DG and get one instead.

Good to know - I am holding off for the 600 5.6 - maybe for Christmas

Nice shooting - I have not had a chance to try my Eckla - a combination of bad weather and my wife taking a bad fall.

My wife had a bad fall two weeks ago. My sympathy goes out to you.

Lovely as usual.

Just for my education, do you shoot with a remote when using the FA*600?

I use a CS-205 cable remote most of the time.

This is what he thinks of Pentax for shooting wildlife.
There was a wildlife exhibition at my grade school when I was a kid. A raptor, species unknown, landed on the basketball hoop of the gymnasium and performed this party trick. I still recall being surprised at how much stuff comes out of them.
