“Big” lens problem of a different kind

I seriously doubt anyone can reliably handhold the FA* 600. If it's weight was in a compact form factor handholding might be possible--albeit very tiring--but it's just too lengthy.

It is a beast--I had to buy a new tripod especially for it. With a Wimberley head and camera+grip there's about 21 pounds on the tripod. (The added weight of the grip is useful for balancing.)

I have the FA* 600mm f/4, the Sigma 300mm f/2.8, and the Sigma 150-500mm. Although fast, the 300mm is really too short for most birding. The 600mm is excellent except it weighs a ton which makes being stationary desirable. The 150-500mm, although slower, works pretty well in bright light and is hand-holdable,

What your favorite coffee brand and coffee machine

Sometimes I feel like I am missing out by not drinking coffee but I've never acquired the taste for it. Tea, on the other hand, I drink every day. Irish Breakfast tea, English Afternoon tea, Prince of Wales tea, Oolong tea, maybe Earl Grey once in a while or Chai on a cool autumn afternoon or blustery winter day.

Some of us never had much functionality, anyway. ;). That said, I would definitely miss what little I do have.

At my annual physical last year my doc asked if I had seen an eye doctor that year and I replied, "No, what's he gonna do? Tell me I'm still blind? I already know that." And she went on to say how it was important for many reasons including those that people have listed in this thread.

What's the highest rated lens you own according to PF?
Posted By Buffy
Replies: 111

My top rated lens is the FA* 85mm f/1.4 rated at 9.75. Right behind that I have the FA 77mm Ltd with it's 9.73 rating. I feel they live up to those ratings, too, they're just spectacular performers.

Rounding out my top 5 K-mount are the FA 31mm Ltd (9.51), the FA 43mm Ltd (9.47) and the FA* 24 (9.23).

My best 645 lens is the FA 120mm macro with a perfect 10, a score I agree with wholeheartedly. My FA 200mm sores a 9.86 and I also have the FA 75mm, FA 150mm, and FA 80-160mm which each score a 9.5. I am rather surprised the FA 35mm doesn't rate higher, it's one of my 3 must-haves for 645.

Harness, waist belt and accessories for Pentax 645Z
Posted By Buffy

The holster is on your right hip and on your left hip is the harness release clip. You can probably fit another holster to the left of the release clip but that puts it more under your arm than in front. Depending on how you hold your arms that could be convenient or it could be uncomfortable.

I have an earlier version than is currently for sale and so it could be a little different so I would check with a sales rep to make sure. Before I purchased mine I called to be sure I could two fit 645NIIs on it comfortably and the sales person was very helpful.

I have the Cotton Carrier chest and waist combo and put the 645z on my chest and the K-1 on my hip. It is effective at redistributing the weight, particularly the chest slot, but pulling a camera out for a shot quickly does require some practice. A camera switch, i.e. put one on the harness and pull the other off--is even harder so if speed is paramount I would guess there are probably better systems.

I should also note that I am not particularly busty but having boobs is a mild impediment for the chest harness. Men might have it easier.
