Thanks and a Couple More

Thanks for all the encouraging comments. Birding is always a bit of a hit and miss affair regardless of the equipment. Much more important is the panning technique, which will always improve with practice. When I was looking into the K-30, I found very little information about its focus tracking capabilities. So I guess, one of the reasons for posting this thread was to let others know that the K-30 can certainly hold its own when faced with the challenge of rapid moving subjects.

I found the Quick-Shift mechanism to be of little value when tracking birds. Perhaps others with quicker reflexes and more dexterous hands would have greater success with it.

Here are a few more taken this Friday:
