SMC Pentax M 400/5.6

This is my longest lens and one which I use primarily for bird photography. Any super telephoto lens takes some time to get used to. I spent several months with this one before I started to get results I was happy with. See the Forum reviews of this lens :

https://www.pentaxforums.com/lensreviews/SMC-Pentax-M-400mm-F5.6-Lens.html

for further details. In any case this thread concerns itself with examples of lens performance. Here are a few of my better efforts with this optic.


North American Robin



Canada Goose



Black-Crowned Night Heron



Eastern Kingbird



Song Sparrow



Red Wing Black Bird



Female Red WIng Black Bird




North American Goldfinch



All images with a Pentax K 10D

Liberty Memorial, WW1 Museum in KCMO
This is the WW1 museum and memorial tower which is about a mile away from where this photograph was taken. It was humid here, so it looks quite a bit clearer due to the dehaze function in Lightroom.

Does anyone else use this lens? Let's populate these sample threads with... sample photos!
