Another one from my set. All of them were shot with the DA* 16-50mm

The car: MG SA, produced from 1935 to 1939 (pictured car 1938); 2738 units built but only 90 with the four door open touring body of the one pictured. A unique feature: a single set of hinges serves both front and rear doors. BTW: K3 + Sigma 17-70

That is beautiful. I have never seen one of those before. Thank you so much for showing us that wonderful car. Not too sure about the body strength with those shared hinges. I used to own an MG TC - many moons ago!

I concur that this particular MG is a really attractive car, lovely elegant lines. The Owl's Head Museum in the town of the same name in Maine has a very extensive display of MG's, allegedly the largest in the USA. Some of the fully enclosed models are a bit awkward looking, but the roadsters are generally appealing. Notice the blue two door behind, probably an older model with its straight window line and apparently no external door handles (not certain of that).

K-3, DA* 60-250 + HD DA 1.4 TC @ 350mm, 400 ISO, ƒ5.6
Cross posted many places.
Yearling wolf... the good looking one.

Looking on while two other siblings are at play. I think the big smile means he approves of the action. Probably thinking "I'm happy the little brat is bothering him, not me."


Looking wolfish...

Getting ready for a little shut eye.


Looking majestic.

An Iceland panorama, nine image stitch (allowed a lot of overlap), K3 & 16-85 (love this lens), pretty sure I did this one hand held rather than using the tripod (=lazy!).

Beautiful work. Has a sense of mystery to the image.

No way I can top, match, come close to that wonderful B&W portrait posted by wolfhast, so let me try for the antithesis of that stunning young woman. K3 & Sigma 50-500 (original version).

Here are a couple of wildlife shots with the K3 & DA 50-200 WR. This lens can be quite sharp when stopped down to f/10 or so.
It's funny. I have one, and it was a real underperformer with my K-5 and K-01. I rarely used it.

But with my new K-3 II it can be very sharp, even at the pixel level. It has really surprised me. I'll have to see if I can find a shot to post using the combination.

I went site seeing today, in a small 4 seat aircraft! Took the K3 along, and the stock 18-135mm lens. Great fun. It was pretty hazy, I would love to do it again with a slightly faster lens and a clearer day.

Silver man, hoping to make a living by just standing around. It appears that Colonel Sanders and at least one lady find him amusing, even if they're unwilling to donate. K3 + Sigma 17-70

I bought one to replace my 55-300, which is too big to carry on holiday, despite the reports or poorer IQ. I'd agree generally that the 50-200 is worse optically, though in a few shots it's pleasantly surprised me even wide open. Luckily for my use so far, on holiday in San Francisco & Seattle, I had mostly very bright days allowing me to close it down without boosting the ISO too much.

Here's another sample from the same combo.
