Saw this outside my condo about 40 feet up a tree.......male iguana......Pentax Q7 & Sigma 170-500......very low light conditions- in the branches- can't believe how improved the Q7 is over the original Q with noise.
Terrific! Glad you're liking your Q 7.

I haven't shared here in a while but I am attempting a 52 project this year so hopefully I'll have more to share. Both with the original Q and the 01 lens

First time birding with the Q7 + Pentax Q-K adapter + DA 55-300 HD WR + monopod with fluid pan head. I knew that I was taking a risk using a monopod instead of a tripod but I wanted ease of movement. I had practiced at home for nearly a week to find the optimum shooting technique and it turned out OK. Both shots at 300mm (~1400mm EQ) and one or two stops from wide open, ISO320, 1/1000s (mechanical shutter. Shake Reduction was on.





I suspect that the owl was taking off because he spooked by another photographer scrambling around the dunes (an ecological No No) with his big Canon gear and got too close.

. . . a risk using a monopod . . .
My solution's been to simply remove one leg from a light, inexpensive tripod of the correct height. Much more portable in the field than a tripod and very much more stable than a monopod. With a neck strap for the 'third leg' you can even have both hands free for manipulating the camera.

With a quick release or magnetic-mount ball head you can easily separate the camera and 'pod when walking.

I've just received a walking-stick/monopod, which I'm hoping to use in circumstances like yours. My first experiment with an adapted lens was taking a picture of our street sign from a block away using a 70mm-210mm Canon FD lens; I took that picture with no support (it was entirely hand-held), but it was quite sharp. Obviously I'll have to do a lot of experimenting with the monopod, but I'm hoping that the in-body "shake resistance" will be up to the challenge. Of course, your using a 1/1000 shutter helped your results a lot, but I view the clarity of your pictures partly as a tribute to the in-body shake resistance (and to your technique), so I'm hopeful that my walking-stick/monopod will also work out. Thank you for the encouraging results!

When I showed it to my wife, she said it looked like a drawing ... which was a complement in that setting.
