I guess it's about time to post a couple of newer shots in this thread, haven't done it in a while.

A few I'm kinda pleased with...

Black Vulture. They never let me this close, this one was in a residential neighborhood where I guess they see people a lot, sat there and watched me.



Frog that decided to set up housekeeping in my bird box. Macro taken with Makinon 135mm and 55mm extension tubes, flash used.



Prothonotary Warbler, the previous resident in the same nesting box.



Another macro, same rig, not as sharp as I might like but how often do you get a bee flying with a macro rig at all...no flash, natural sunlight.

Last hurrah with the K-30 before start finding a new home for it, DA10-17 Fisheye with flash. I've always complained about the TTL flash lag with K-30 but the last few times I used it with flash I turned all the in camera correction off and the lag is much more manageable.

It's a good lens, my new favorite! I mostly have Pentax primes but the Helios hasn't hardly been off the camera in a month.

Very nice pictures, sharp lens! I have tried using a manual focus lens, M50 f1.7 but my eyes are not good enough anymore to get sharp focus

I have to cheat and use the live view zoom a lot on fast speeds.

Post Your K-30 Photos Here

This camera has been an excellent companion, I owned a K-X before, but the K-30 really took my skills to the next level, I'm not that solvent to keep my old camera as I upgrade, and since I already bought a K-S2 (delivery scheduled to this Wednesday), my white K-30 is going to a good friend at a fair price.


Here are some of my favorites:

(info on the lens used attached)

Sigma 17-50 f2.8


Sigma 18-200 f3.5

Great photographs! I really like these very much, and they cover a wide range of subjects/venues. Enjoy the new camera, and I hope the pixie dust (with good advice and examples) encourages the buyer of this one.
