I must confess the thought that ran through my head when I saw that first image was: "Oh my god, a flasher!"

FA 100-300mm f4.5-5.6

I previously had a F 100-300mm f4.5-5.6, - 2015, how time flies - and wasn't too impressed. I now have the FA version, acquired very cheap with an FA 28-80mm because both had lost the power zoom switches off the case. They were also described as hazed but that's pretty negligible.
Although the lenses are supposed to be optically the same, my first impression of this FA one is better. It performed nicely on my KS2, focusing quickly and accurately on the whitethroats. Big crops (~ 1500px, resized to 1k).

Not much to complain about with that IQ. There's always some variation from copy to copy of the same lens, so maybe you got a peach among the lemons.

K3 III + 150-450mm

Went out to test the camera/lens combo.

A couple of successful shots.

I think I need more practice and getting used to the camera's autofocus settings. There are a lot of missed focus shots.
