Yep... could always use more from Chris and fewer perching birds and squirrels.
Thanks. If you took the birds and squirrel pics out this forum would be pretty empty.

New old lens

I just got a copy of the Pentax-M 50mm f/1.4, I think it's from the late 1970s (came in the box with warranty and registration cards, should I send them in?). I haven't had a chance to get out and about with it yet but I took a picture of the neighborhood near sunset and I really like the look. The other shot is up at Oahu's North Shore, with the 55-300 WR.


SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/1.4 at f/5.8, iso 100 1/100


Kaimuki, St. Louis Heights and Palolo Valley


DA 55-300mm F4-5.8 ED WR at 300mm, f/11, iso 100 1/5000

You are a shining example that birding is not just possible on a Pentax system, but the results can be top notch!

Once again Kengoh shows what good technique and proper equipment can produce. Should we be inspired, humbled or intimidated? A bit of all three.

Many of us love seeing & taking the wildlife shots; as well as seeing other images such as Chris'. It all works out well for whatever someone prefers.

Amen. More than a bit, on my part.
