Got my K-3 back from the workshop...

Today, after 10 days of waiting, I finally got my K-3 back from the workshop and at the same time my new DA* 300 f4 came in the mail.

Just wanted to say that the sharpness and speed of this combo is really a lift from my K-5 + Tamron 70-200.

Why the K-3 was in the workshop? Well, my Tamron 17-50 and my Pentax 18-135 needed to be adjusted and the workshop did not yet have their own copy of a K-3 so they asked me to send it.

The K-3 and DA*300 are a high-performance combination.
Look forward to seeing some shots from you!

The weather in Sweden is rainy and cloudy these days so it´s dark and wet most of the time but I have a weather sealed lens and camera so I go out anyway.

This is called Nötväcka in Swedish shot using TAv and it gave me ISO1600 and I am pleased with the result.

1/160 @ f4 and ISO1600. Crop approximately 60%
