Those are some great looking images. We've been investigating this lens, the DA*200 2.8. It's definitely not as popular as the DA*300, but we have the DA*60-250and A-400, but we don't have 2.8 in a long lens. Those images are very good.

We've written this lens off a couple of times, but it keeps coming back into view.
thank you,
yes, this lens did not get much use in recent years , now with 24MP K-3 and cropping capability I rediscovered this lens again.
It will get much more use now.
kind regards

Sample birding photo

Hi guys,

Absolutely love the clarity and detail that the K-3 gives me for my birding photos.
The first one is the photo as it was taken and the second is a near 100% crop of the first.

In case anyone is curious this is a female White-winged Fairy-wren. They are very small and fast

Regards
Peter

Got my K3 the other day which replaces my K10D - what a difference all round. Here's a shot in poor light really with the grey heron sat in shadow as well but I'm really looking forward to getting to know the K3 and sharing some more shots with everyone.

Shot with Sigma 150-500 at 440mm, ISO800, f8, 1/640sec.

I'm very pleased with the faster fps of K3, capturing a shot like this is much more easier than K5-IIs.

sample shot

This was shot with the Sigma 50mm f1.4 HSM DG (which has been returned due to AF issues). Otherwise, 1/125 at f2.8, ISO100.

Sorry about having to return the lens, but still a great moment, I think the caption should be something like "Hey, I got a secret to tell you..."
