A few from the KP, not had much of a chance to get out with it due to nursmaiding my 95 yrs young mother but it seems like it's going to be a great camera...

Quite a beautiful area you live in and, very nice shots!

I've only gotten to take the KP out a couple times so far, so I'm still in the "banging away" phase, but this was handheld with the DA*60-250 in a dark room, f/5.6 and ISO 6400, SooC. I wouldn't have even attempted it with any of my previous bodies.

Cosmo is a very cool cat! You have large rocks and drift wood in a room?

That's Cosmo's room at the zoo. He's a Sand Cat (Felis margarita), a desert wildcat. Sand Cats are about the size and appearance of housecats, but have a number of adaptations that let them live in the desert, including large ears, fluffy feet, and the ability to live on just the moisture in their prey. They also have a Bite Force Quotient (ratio of bite force to body size) more than double that of a domestic cat and comparable to a jaguar or leopard - which one of the keepers found out the hard way when he tried to grab Cosmo. Even with bite gloves on, he had to go to the E/R for stitches. Gotta respect a Sand Cat!

I decided to take the KP to Italy, with a bunch of compact lenses. I am currently six days into an 18 day trip, about to leave Lake Como for Venice.

The growing album of shots can be seen HERE

As I familiarise myself with the body's quirks (coming from K-3/K-1 ergonomics) I am becoming increasingly impressed with its output.

Me and my missus love Como, did you get up to the chapel above the lake or Castle Vezzio?
Here's a couple from the Castle, excuse the N!&*n pics...

That little KP seems to pull some great stuff!

Has anyone here tried it for "moving wildlife" (birds and other such critters) with a da*300/4 and high ISO ?
