Love the pupil Dilation on this shot. By the way, seems the site compression is affecting the sharpness of the shot, is that true or just me ?

The big building in the first picture looks like the HQ of a marital aid Co., both male and female.

I have not thought of it at all!!!

Took out the DA* 50-135 with Kenko 1.4X DG Teleconverter for an evening trial.

Figures, I spot my first Barred Owl when I've only got an 189mm lens on, but this heavy crop shows the combo can still pick out lots of detail.

You see it in the opening squirrel photo too, but the TC adds something special to the already-special bokeh out of the 50-135. I'm stoked about this development.

Finally we have a photo of a brute. He chased away 3 adorable chipmunks.

Interesting. Have you tried the skin tones #1 and #2 ? Looks like the camera is processing the raw files, also I couldn't really tell the difference (I need to get some subject with good looking skin :-) )

I did quick test, with old Tamron 90mm, 20mm extention tube, and old 2x Vivitar TC. It's such a cool combo. Takumar macro 50mm preset is next.
Wow that Taku sharpness, impressive

Oh, no that was all withTamron 90mm. I plan to test Takumar 50 preset soon.
I could not do it yesterday, only tested with Tamron until sweat started dropping on weather sealed K-1
Even with old vivitar tc is was not bad. Still can't pull the trigger on HD 1.4x for the price of good lens...

FA 77 @ f5

---------- Post added 06-09-16 at 01:33 PM ----------

Oh and I'll post this photo as more of a showing of ISO performance as I rarely ever went over 800 on my K3.

This is shot with the FA 77 @ f2.8 and ISO 1600, 1/60th a second at night under 2 florescent lights. All i did in photoshop camera raw was adjust the exposure +0.7 and slight bump to vibrance/saturation

full size if people are interested
