Just got back from a trip east with my family -- seeing both my wife's family and my family in Virginia and Pittsburgh respectively. The DA *16-50 ended up being the lens on my camera 90 percent of the time -- you just can't beat the flexibility of a zoom...

A few from the Pittsburgh leg.

Nice shots Rondec. Not many Americans have any idea of how much of the fate of modern North America was decided at that little fort at the confluence of the three rivers. Most probable only know it as the site of Three Rivers Stadium and the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers. As your second photo shows, giants once walked over that land and decided the fates of empires.

I was out messing around trying to get the blind in a better position, and missed the good light, so all I have are some 1600 ISO desperation images....















Maybe better tomorrow.

Nice shots. Are you shooting through glass by any chance. I really like the bluebird. Is it a Jay?maria

I haven't had time to really try out my new K3 yet, but here's a quick selfie taken to test at ISO 12,800. I've cleaned it up a bit but I need to learn PP all over again with this camera's files. The K200D software won't open the DNG files and Paintshop Pro X4 exports the jpegs with a distinct red tint, despite not showing that tint in the software itself. I need to get some other software or learn to fix/compensate for it.

High ISO capability was not one of my main reasons for getting the K3, but as that's all I've been able to use it for up til now, I'm pretty impressed so far. ISO 3200 is very useable and even these 12,800 shots are pretty good for my normal purposes. From my attempts with even higher ISOs, I think they'll be useable for converting to B&W and bumping up the contrast a bit to make them look like old-school grainy film.

These were taken with the DA 35mm limited.

I have blind set up near my feeders so, no, not through glass....
And the blue bird is indeed a Blue Jay. Blue Jays are usually very hard to get, but these guys were hatched in the woods right behind my house and have probably come to these feeders every day of their life. As long as I'm in the blind they ignore me.
