Thanks Bruce! Very cool falls, love all the sepia to green tones and smooth water. The first 2 pics are just begging to be framed together in a double mat single frame

My wife texted me while on a walk near by when she saw a Great Blue Heron and I drove over to see if he was still there. I ended up taking shots for about an hour using the Bigma on my K1. Here are a couple of favorite shots.


Real good shooting, love the reflection photo & the pose perch shot.
Best Regards, Bob

Frederic, that first shot is strange; interesting & really cool. The second one is my kind of food.

Out and about today: I am really liking my K1-II over my K1. It just seems to do everything the K1 does only a bit better. And I am a big fan of my K1.
Terrific photos of terrific scenes, very nice work.
Best Regards, Bob

(both shot with the DFA 24-70mm)
Love the Tractor and Sunburst shot, both are a pleasure to view. Makes me want to get out in the fields and get back to shooting.

If you can afford it without a strain on your budget, I don't think you will regret it. It is by far the best lens available of its type for the K-1.
I have seen them used (like I got mine) as low as $1400. I paid a little more from a forum member and still saved a couple hundred bucks over new with no regrets.

My biggest problem is watching my DA*300mm and Tamron 70-200 F2.8 collecting dust. IF the DFA 150-450mm was a hair smaller and lighter, it would be a little easier to let the DA*300mm go, but in reality, the 300mm is a lot more compact and lighter and I can carry a few other lenses with it, while the DFA is a beast, and tends to dominate my bag for the day, and I usually only bring one other lens when I know I'm going to be using it mostly. It is not the kind of extra weight you want to carry on your shoulder all day for nothing, "just in case" you might need it. Picking my camera bag and what I'm going to put in it for the day is always a tough choice, heh.

That first shot with the FA35mm is great, the flower looks almost like reef brain coral.
Eric



Thanks Bruce! Of course you are right, the background has a lot to do with focus lock and track, but even still, I think technique has a lot to do with it too, because there are people who blame the camera even with a clean background. I was just being chirpy and having fun. No oncoming weaving bicycles for me. ;-) Using Select 9, and CAF with the DFA 150-450mm set with the range limiter to 6m-Infinity does make it nice and quick. It makes the old DA55-300mm on my old classic K-5 seem like a snail in reverse by comparison.

Mister Eric, you are doing absolutely fantastic with the beast lens. Really like these 2 shots and loved the Pelican series. Soon I hope to get back on track...soon

Beautiful water fall shots. You shoot quite the variety of subjects and do it well with each.

Hm - I did it ... and use a mechanical mule (Burley Travoy). It even can lay down ...



And it can carry a lot more as you can see. Drag it and go by feet or attach it to a bike. I love it. But that may not fit for everybody and of course there may be terrain where it simply doesn't work.


Backpack LowePro Vertex 100 AW. You can even put the whole Lens with attached hood in the middle and place the camera at the right or left side. Some more room for lenses and other things.


Really like your set up. One of these days I will post photos of an old day pack that I modified as a camera bag for hiking or on the mountain bike. Yours is really cool since it has it's own wheels and is much easier on the back. Thanks for sharing all that.
Best Regards, Bob

Thank you for your feedback. Looking forward to seeing your setup. In the image below you can see the Travoy's bag with Travoy inside leaning on the wall. The wheels run very well and if they're a bit muddy, packed into the bag there's no problem. You don't need to clean them up every time you were out. The Travoy is really very well thought out IMO. Perfect for us photographers.
