Today all the Park Rangers saw a Pentax K3 sporting the Sigma 500mm. Lol, it was mine.

34 is zoo weather? Wow.
Yeah, you'll find those animals who just sleep out the summer day are up and active when it's cool. I remember one night in Cincinnati (the Zoo's winterfest) we were waiting for some friends and it was about 25 degrees. We heard movement behind us and in that cold dark the red pandas were in their element, just frolicking in the trees. Unfortunately this was back in the film days and I wouldn't bother to bring a camera.

And here I am, just asking myself - 34 and 25 WHAT?

Yeah, I know. 25F. Great weather for the DSLR. Too cold, and the battery doesn't behave.

When the weather gets to about 10 hear (-12 celsius) my DA*60-250 AF doesn't work anymore if I have the 1.4 TC on it. It can be irritating. IN this case, it's just better to get out the A-400 for and use a lens that's made to be manually focused.

Well, rope walking like a little too niche to me...
'Slackline' is a very big deal under 30.

Hate to burst your bubble but those guys in the video are definitely real, hard core climbers. From my days in the distant mists of time as a serious climber, it looks totally real for some guys out practicing their skills and having a good time. Most every high-end rock climber has spent practice time in ratty jeans (have you every seen the climbers' camp in Yosemite Valley?) and walking a slack line is one of the training activities that every climbing school recommends. Usually it is done a couple of feet off the ground so falls are not a problem but it definitely builds balance and feel for the real thing. Actually, the skills those guys were displaying were pretty darned impressive. And the photography was pretty good as well.

Now, if that video makes for good advertising to the general masses, that is a different story. I was impressed but I have a different viewpoint. I know how hard that was. Mom or pop looking for a camera to photograph the kids might not see it that way.
No one drives a sports car the way they show them in commercials either, but 60-year-old guys are buying Corvette Z06's and 911's as fast as they can make them. Just try getting your hands on a Subaru BRZ or some tuner drift whip.

So while all the canikon fanboys are out spending loads of $$$ on new lenses, I'll still be haunting yard sales and pawn shops to pick up 30 year old Pentax lenses for usually under $50 that still work on DSLR...can't beat it with a stick...
Alternatively, while people are out shooting, we'll be out haunting yard sales and pawn shops .

I recently became a 2-system photographer. I'm still not using Canon or Nikon kit.
