right on, bro. learned how to double clutch when i was 17 in an mga. hooked on sportscars ever since. here is me and little p my 2015 lease cayman.
fred from nashville

Nice Porsche....only one I've been in was an old Porsche 356 Cabriolet, back in the late '60's.

I learned to double clutch, but not as anything as glamorous as an MGA. I picked up the art of double clutching on our old (1952) International grain truck, on the farm, many moons ago. When you have a load of around 15,000 lbs. of grain on an old, modified dump truck with 'tired' Cornbinder IH Black Diamond inline six and a non synchronized crash box....you learn to be quick and precise with shifts, a missed or slow shift with the truck would slow it down and usually that would mean starting all over again, something you quickly learn to avoid.

FA77+TC x1.4.
I have to admit that I was wrong saying that is impossible to focus on moving toward subject. Practiced on my cat

Since that AF argument has become a bit tiring, here is a cross post with 3 samples from K-1 (including one with an A 35-105/3.5)

Yep, I kept that thread in mind shooting today specifically the cat moving toward me. It was easy since that bastard always runs toward when he sees me focusing, and ruins my shoots.

I'm going to shoot a baseball game, but can't bring telephoto lens at the stadium. So, I'm trying to mask K-1 as an "amateur camera" with the short lens, but take at least TC to get closer. So, I practice the action shooting in high ISO, and relatively low speed.
It seems that combo might work. (also will grab DA70 just in case)

You did it! Now try focusing on the cat riding a bicycle! That's what the objective tests require!

Nice hummer! It's great to see a more natural setting than a feeder too!

Checking in to post a few hummingbird photos. Really enjoyed zhuxyg's shot!

These were taken with the Samyang 135mm lens. It's challenging shooting hummies in flight with manual focus, but catch in focus makes it surprisingly doable. The white background is not photoshopped - the siding under the eave where the feeders are hanging is white and since it was blurred out, it made the background look nice and clean. I did turn up the highlights a tad to get more separation.

Really really loving the K-1 and this Samyang lens is an absolute gem!

On a separate note, I tried shooting hummingbirds with the K-1 and DA*300 with the HD DA 1.4x rear converter. I also tried with the K-3, same setup. The AF on the K-1 was infinitely better about locking on to the birds in flight. The K-3 had a terrible time even finding them and would just rack back and forth most of the time. With the K-1, it immediately saw the birds and then tried to lock focus. Now, it was a bit slow and not always accurate, but I attribute that to the little devils moving around so fast and the tiny DoF I was working with. Just my unscientific findings, FWIW.

It's a pain to nail the focus on them. Great job!
