Picture K3 and DA 55-300
11 Oct 2015 my wife and I went for a Sunday drive and I took the new-to-me K3 with my DA 55-300 just to see what the combination could do. Most of the photos were taken with the K3 in Green Mode. I wanted to see what Mr. Pentax thought of things. The K3 was set to put PEF on Card 1 and JPG on Card 2 so I could compare the camera JPG engine to what I could do in Lightroom 6.2. It turns out that for most shots, the camera JPG engine was plenty good enough, except for some tricky lighting situations with very high contrast. I could pick up a bit more detail in Lightroom due to the 14 bit wiggle room.

Picture Easter Sunday, 2015, in Creston Wildlife Management Area
This is one of our favourite places to visit, and we went for a drive Sunday. I used one lens, the DA 55-300 all day. We thought there were not likely to be very many birds, so I didn't take the 400 with me, just my DA kit of three lenses, and never changed a lens.

All of the photos except the Pentaxian attempting to capture Bald Headed Eagles in flight are at 300 mm.

Picture Coal Trains in the Elk Valley
Taken with my DA-L 55-300 at 55 mm. Our trains run 132 cars or so of clean coal. The coal is shipped out from the port near Vancouver BC, and is mostly used to make steel. The album cover is the head of the train, the other is the middle engine, half way back.
