I'll take your word for it. At my age, slow is good.

There, fixed it for you.
It isn't so much tracking as latency. If I follow a flying bird without shooting the focus is quick and keeps it sharp, on the K3. When I start shooting it seems to get saturated, too much data coming in that it can't process quickly enough.

We will see what the K1 is like. A major improvement is good news. When friends with a bunch of different stuff, Canon, Nikon go out, we all complain about focus, and many times I'm the one who got the shot. So let's not think that everything is perfect over there.

derekkite, that also my finding . I dont want to argue here but most time when I use my K5 for bird photo , I have more keeper that the Canon guy. They rely too much on their equipment versus us who understand our tool.

He he I told you those lenses were monsters

I can't say how it goes after hours but for short time I felt them to be quite hand holdable. More than I thought they would.

It is very hand holdable; I am yet to put mine on a tripod, and yesterday I went on a 8km trail run (rough, steep track) with it on a BlackRapid sling.

Wow, handholdable it is then
I probably wouldn't be able to endure such effort, happy you are

Taken on my jog yesterday - 7.5km already under my belt so I was breathing hard with a heart rate of about 150. It's slightly back focussed as a result, and it was foggy with light drizzle, but you get the idea.

I chatted to the mountain bikers as I went past, then turned around for the shot. Hence the smile


Why I don't ride

Huh, Sandy said the lens was NOT YET put on tripod but used on blackrapid sling.

What is not clear in Sandy's statement?

Sandy is my hero. He spends his money on equipment and then runs wherever he needs to go. Cars are expensive and take valuable money away from things like lenses and whatnot.

Pentax and trailrunning, my idea of fun. Although I have yet to combine the two, let alone with such a lens

I believe that Ricoh/B & H has reduced the price on the DA* 50-135, likely due to the fact that the new D FA* 70-200 FF lens will be the lens that people go with in the future.
