With the DA* 300 + DA 1.4x. This was shot with tripod, but usually I shoot the DA* 300 (and the Tamron 70-200) with the grip, which I find essential. I would never have bought the KP if it didn't come with the optional grip.

This is from last July when I and my wife were walking down a small mountain nearby after the sunset. We scared off many of these birds sleeping on gravel, we couldn't tell what they were as they looked like dark blobs to our eyes, but I managed to take a few shots. I thought that I totally screwed up the exposure, birds were still dark blobs on the rear LCD. Well, screwed up I might have , but RAW image from KP had more room for PP than I thought. In the end we were happy not just because we saw that they were horned larks, but because we actually liked one of the pictures.


KP and 55-300 PLM at 300mm f/6.3, ISO1600, 1/40 sec. PP included boosting brightness by 2.5 stops among other things. I have to say I love KP for AF in dark places, SR that's good for 300mm 1/40sec on a crop sensor and low noise output that allows me to massage things in post even if I underexposed by 2.5 stops.

It's been a long time since I posted any pictures. I have been shooting some, but finding time to process the photos has been difficult. Anyway, we did get in a short camping trip to the Smokies earlier this week, and I did get a few shots. We saw 3 bears within an hour one morning.

Really stunning, and fabulous technique. Really nice work.
Thanks BIFF

I took a similar picture a few years back, but that was without the focus peaking and stacking and without the macro lens. It was with the K5. The detail that the macro lens can show is fantastic and I am looking forward to play around with it more

Smokies in Autumn

Depending on elevation, the leaf color change was just beginning, fully involved, or past. While we enjoyed the scenery, the crowds were so huge, that I don't think we'll come here this time of year again- it was a zoo at times.
