Nice image of that Catalina; the foliage in the background works very well.
Thank you for your kind comments.

How do you feel the FA* 400/5.6 compares with your other long tele lenses?
I'd say it's a nice size and weight for the reach it gives...
Color rendition is on par to other FA* lenses... purple fringing a bit more when light is tight and not as sharp as my FA*250-600 or the DA*300 wide-open, but acceptable. Sometimes I miss F4 compared to DA*300. I'd say it would compare to a DA*300 + HDTC, but bokeh is much better with the FA*400

I whish Pentax makes a similar prime with latest optic technology...

My spouse spotted that hawk on the telephone lines the day before... We came back and it was still in the area. It was surprisingly very cooperative to our great pleasure!

Do you know the name and model number of this plane? I would love to look it up and read details about it.

Disappearing old girls. The Canso (You cannot land here, Can So) a Canadian amphibian that looks ever so much like that bird. Extremely reliable old air/sea craft, but painfully slow by today's standards.

I guess that's why she looked like the Canso (the Canadian name for the craft)
