K-3 + Da 50-135

I think I have developed a envy for that Siggy 500/4.5! Great shots all.

D.Dawg shot No. 5's oof blur is so peculiar!

I have been having much more success in tracking things with the new K-3. This is shot with the Da*50-135. Not a BIF but still quite difficult to capture when on the move!

amen to this, I specifically got the k3 for wildlife to complement my ff nikon.
Hi, and for all those of you coming from "outside Pentax" who've now purchased the K-3 primarily for wildlife/birding, a warm "Welcome to Pentax"; and may I also encourage you to try out some non-telephoto Pentax lenses with your K-3. I think you'll like the results. :-)

There are many lenses, and user needs differ, but here's just a quick intro:

Portraiture: FA77 Limited f1.8. Aside from truly excellent sharpness, colour, bokeh and contrast, the image rendering is legendary. One has to experience it to understand the reputation this lens has in the Pentax community.

Macro: DA35 Limited f2.8. Stunning detail, breathtaking colours, superb micro-contrast and lovely macro bokeh. Doubles as a versatile walkabout lens also.

And there are many others.

Mind you, the lab test measurements and online lens reviews may not always be particularly outstanding, but don't be misled. We in the Pentax community are pretty "used" to this, and we know from personal experience gained through thousands of REAL-LIFE shots that the above Pentax lenses (and many others I'm not listing here) are just frankly, superb.

Happy exploring in the wonderful world of Pentax. :-)
