Still getting to know the 55-300 PLM but impressed so far.

Outstanding! The O-GPS1 is something I will have to purchase sooner or later... (I'm afraid later, the battery grip has the priority now that my second silver KP body has arrived, but time will come!)
Thanks WhiteFeather! Great taste, my KP is silver too.

Astrotracer sounded gimmicky to me until I tested it, it's actually a great feature! I just wish KP had it built-in, then it's one less battery to worry about.

Very impressive for a superzoom- which lens was used for the dragonfly?

Two from Bastia (Corsica Island), again with the 16-85, which is glued to the camera most of the time when I travel...

Be prepared for people to think you are rocking a film full frame and what to yap about it while you are trying to shoot, well if you are using a shorter lens.
Had more than a few people blow my shots wanting to talk about the Pentax right as I am pushing the button, kind of like when people cough or talk when a golfer is releasing the swing. I have given up trying to take beach night shots around here during tourist season.

Red Capped Robyn Female.... DFA 150-450 (Over sharpened I think.... playing with a one month trial of Capture one). A flighty thing.... but tricked it with a phone app.

Saturday 23 Aug 2020 the cruise ship WORLD DREAMS is moored at the Holland America quay in Rotterdam

Earlier this year, the ship of the Asian cruise company Dream Cruises stayed in the port of Rotterdam for 4 months, for maintenance in the dry dock at Damen Verolme in the Botlekhaven and subsequently in the Waalhaven at Uniport for further work.
The arrival at the cruise terminal has to do with a "technical" visit. There will be bunkered, water refreshed and other things that can only be done at the quay.

Since the end of July, it was, like the Nieuw Statendam, Zaandam, Emerald Princess and Seabourn Ovation, near the anchorage in Scheveningen in anticipation of better times.

As a ship (especially cruise and ferries) enthusiast I can only thank you for the nice pictures and very interesting explanations behind them! Not a nice year for cruising industry at all , let's hope next year things will recover.

Here in Livorno we also have two Regent ships (Seven Seas Voyager & Navigator) moored and waiting for better times...

From my new KP, this is just the kind of image my K5 struggled with, a higher iso on a dull day in an almost monochrome landscape would produce a lot of sensor noise. It still exists here in the KP image but at manageable levels and the extra sharpness and detail from the sensor means less or no balancing of sharpness and noise reduction. There would be even less noise if I'd got the exposure right, very impressed with the KP.

And the photo is people walking out to Hibre Island off the Wirral coast
