Took me a while to get through all of those images !!

That is quite a setup you have and I understand that you are proud to show it off, with reasons!

Cheers!

One thing I would say. Doesn't the GPS unit need to be on the hotshoe of the camera for most accuracy instead of on a flash bracket?
When you get a flash I would put the flash on the bracket and the GPS on the body if I were you.

Indeed, what a nice photo equipment that you have. And the pictures are superb, did you use the 18-270 to get the pictures of the planes?, because if that is the case the performance of this lens is much better than what I would expect.

Congratulations!!.

Thanks! All pictures taken from 18-270mm. Bought 20-40mm recently. I will not recommand 18-270mm lens for many reasons. I am professional graphic designer and expert in post production (Having 10 + years in graphics industry). My pictures are heavily post process. The result of this camera is 70% as per my satisfaction. Sharpness is the most "Big Issue" of this lens. Another issue is 3.5 A.

Wonderful pictures. 18-270 is a consumer lens. I think 150-450 or 70-200 might be good choice?

I thought you wanted to sell them; I kept looking for the offering price(s).

Very nice setup!

I have the 18-270 and I agree it's not the best lens optically - but then, a consumer zoom covering such a wide range of focal lengths is always going to be very much a compromise. The biggest problem with it, in my view, is a tendency to create small donuts on specular highlights in the bokeh (my Panasonic TZ70 compact does the same thing). That said, with careful subject placement, it can also produce wonderfully smooth bokeh (see attached pic).

That Vello flash bracket is interesting - how heavy is it? It looks like it could get in the way of the grip when in portrait mode, though, or am I mistaken? Right now, if I'm going to be swapping between landscape and portrait, I attach the flash via a cable and hold it in my left hand. It's not ideal.

Oh, and I have to say, those are impressive photos - nicely done!

That was my take as well, since the full kit was itemized. Offering stuff for sale outside the marketplace is heavily frowned on and against forum rules.

BTW...VERY cool photos and posters.

Vello Flash bracket is not heavy. Very useful, light weight and the good think about this bracket is, you can use with your GRIP + like I did see the picture closely. You can use for making portrait as well.

Pentax is new in Pakistan. Majority in fat 99% owned Canon and Nikon especially D7100 and Mark 5D here in Pakistan. Well I bought this from UK and accessories from USA & Australia. Pentax accessories price are way too high here.

May be don't know yet but I am looking for some other telephoto. 55-300 is not my taste because of no SDM or slow SDM. 18-270mm SDM is very fast.
