That's a good idea. Keep the ocean down in a hole. Actually, I guess it is - even here.

Not a spider. (Seriously - spiders have two body sections.) D-FA 100mm plus Raynox DCR-250; two-shot focus-stack.

I've been mulling over the idea of selling my K-3 to fund a Fuji XT-2. Everytime I think I should, I take the K-3 out, take some pictures and fall in love again. Yes, I'm having bad gas right now.



I tested a Fuji X-T10 for the first time at my local camera store and just could not like it no matter how much time I played with it. It was too toy like I guess. I hated the Electronic viewfinder. I guess it's just not for me. Others love it though.

I too tried the X-T10 and didn't like it. However, i loooooveeee my X-E2. It's the perfect street camera. It goes almost everywhere with me on a normal day. I wish I could do that with the K-3 but it's too big. The K-3 only comes out on dedicated photography days.

The X-T2 is a beast. That focus tracking is insane. Not to mention 4k video. And the flip out screen would be awesome for street.

I AM IMPRESSED! Taken a number of shots of daddies, primarily in what is now being called the "film era," but not as fine as that one.

After a 24 hour K-1 shooting binge, I've come to a number of conclusions... the view through the viewfinder if you're used to a K-3 and the same telephoto lens, is disappointing.

Anyway, back to my K-3 today.

Those images look smooth and sharp. What lens tc combo are you using?

Just don't ever go mirrorless on us

It looks a bit better than the DA*200 on my iPad anyway.

It might be, or it much just be that I'm cropping less, using the longer lens.

Didn't have time to compose too much, but one of the many neat sites seen in Algonquin park.
