Eric, thank you for the comments, the nephew & I are having a great time with the new wonderful digital optical stuff.
<snip>
Last year when I started looking at the many good photos on this forum I determined that one lens I wanted was the DFA 150-450. Knew that long before deciding to buy the K-1. Well finally I was able to afford it. After just a few days of shooting I am happy with it. Over 20 years ago I first saw a humming bird moth, and since then wanted to capture the image that I now post here. A lot of people would not consider that to be very important, but for me it was almost monumental. In the future I hope to get back in to wildlife photography and hope to get some decent shots to post.
These shots were taken hand held from about 8 feet away and the converted jpeg looks as good as the RAW.
Best Regards. Bob
Looks like it was money VERY well spent. I've always said it's better to save and get what you really want, than to waste money and time trying cheaper alternatives that you are either stuck with or have to sell at a loss, then end up having to go buy what you wanted in the first place anyway. Good on you buddy!

That 3rd shot is the winner for me. I've always wanted to catch a great pic of a that moth, but they are so skittish. That lens is on my "definite maybe" list, but it would have to replace my DA*300, in the bag, and prolly my Tamron 70-200 f2.8 would have to go too.... the 150-450 would have to become a major portion of my bag space, along with the DFA100WR and either the Tamron 28-75 or the Tokina 20-35. Those 3 would be about max, unless I hire a Sherpa to lug it all. I'm a big guy in good shape but when the backpack gets close to or over 20lbs w/ tripod, lunch and water, I'm about done in this hot humid area. So far I've just admired the 150-450 from afar.

Eric

mattb123, WOW, fantastic moon rise. I want to catch one next to my barn but it certainly will not be any where near as great as that one, excellent job.

Thanks! Don't sell yourself short as anyone can probably take a fine moon rise photo with some patience, planning, and good technique. I practice a lot and have been chasing the moon rises and sets for years. On this particular one, I was lucky with the clouds which had only just opened up a little after being overcast and stormy earlier. As for the moon its self, I would have gotten a better photo with more moon detail had I shot it the previous evening when moon rise was earlier and the landscape would have had more ambient light.
So for your barn photo, try it the day before true full moon. It will still look full and it's much easier to expose for the moon and landscape in a single exposure.
Good luck and have fun!

I overlooked some pics I took a couple months ago while hicking in south of France, all taken with Pentax SMC FA 20-35mm /F4 under perfect weather.
Here are a few B&W shots developed with ON1 Effects 2017, a change from my usual Nik "Silver Efex Pro2" processing.
Last picture is a Panorama of 6 shots, handheld.
I instantly remembered this very nice looking country in France and immediately had to look into my image archive - same ancient location eight years ago. Thank you for the remembrance! Here's my version. I beg your pardon - not taken with a Pentax but a Canon Powershot G10, just have to show it :
