I am beginning to think that the D FA 150-450 is going to stay glued to my K3. I really, really like this lens.
If I come knock on your front door can I borrow it for a half hour?
When the 560 came out Pentax came to PhotoExposure in Toronto, and I got to play with it, as well as the 645D. Now there is no show, and there is no place to even hold a lens like this. My tactile method of buying is severely compromised.

Normhead,

Sure, I'm just across the lake.

A few more shots. All of these were taken at the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge about halfway between Rochester and Syracuse, NY. All shot were from the car as you can not leave you vehicle in most areas. All with Pentax D FA 150-450 lens.

Sounds like the kind of reach I'd like to have instead of having to crop from my sigma 100-300 f4. I wonder how the IQ would compare between the two?

Radeon

Am I right in guessing the lens used for that image is a SMC Takumar 35/2?

Awesome shot. From what I have experienced with this lens and seen from photos posted by users of the 100-400 f4 I think that it is as least as good. Below is a shot that I took with the lens at 410mm. The original and then two crops.

Impressive. I don't suppose you have anything above 400mm with the aperture wide open? Actually, I just found the 150-450 lens club thread...I'll have a poke around in there.
