K70 /w 300mm/f4 Super Takumar

I took these photos while heading to Rama (Orillia, Ontario, Canada) for family Thanksgiving dinner. We stopped at an Enroute Service Center. There are always mooching seagulls there. But this one caught my eye. So mounted the 300mm/f4 Super Takumar on my K70 and took some shots. I guess the bird took exception and in the end pooped on me as he/she flew over.

Great shots. The ones with the gull on the light are nice and sharp, and I really like the last one. You can see the malice in its eyes!

Great shots! Especially considering that you had to focus manually.

Well-captured with such an old, manual focus lens! TFS.

Here is my 300mm/f4 Super-Takumar on the K70. I took these photos with the K50. I also noticed that the K50s sensor needs a good cleaning.....I removed all the dust and bits artifacts in Corel PaintShot Pro
