Seconded, wish even a quarter of my birding shots with the HD55-300 were that good!

I find mine tricky to get the best out of. I've done lovely shots of insects and things like that using it as a tele-macro, but it's never produced anything outstanding from a distance. I've been eyeing a 60-250 for that reason, and for the noise aspect. I like the noise, but birds don't apparently!

Lovely colours indeed! Was that with a polarising filter? The sky looks a very dark blue in comparison.

I've always wanted a GR, but held off buying one second hand because of the dust ingress reports. With dust removal built in the only barrier to me now is the price. Hopefully the lens performs at least as well as the past two!

There is now the 1/1.7 used in the Huawei P20/Mate 20 Pros that has a 40MP resolution, I'm pretty sure I read about a newer one but I'll have to look for it. I would be seriously tempted by a Q that oversampled like the Nokia 808 and have you a choice of resolutions, oversized sensor for aspect ratio change like the LX7 would be good too.

Must get a Q for the collection anyway...

Looking at you pictures, I think I might need one too! Not sure the British weather will do it the same justice though...

Nice shots as ever!

Which colour mode are you using? I tend to use standard and find the K-50 gets everything in a nice balance. Vivid I would say oversaturates everything...

Nice pictures, I'm always intrigued by fungi, not sure why I haven't turned a lens on any yet! Nice use of natural lighting and inspiring to me to get out and shoot some myself!

Poll: What should the next Pentax Full Frame be?

A bit rich for most though, a 'KF' if you will, compact but able to trade blows with the D610/6D2 on price and quality (the D610 is particularly cheap at the minute), while offering the OVF and rugged build Pentax are famous for I would see as having a fighting chance of differentiating itself from the CaNikony alternatives. Though of course with Sony's current business model, you could opt for the Mk1 or Mk for mouth-wateringly good prices (£749 and £1199 with kit lenses!) so they would probably need to include the K-1II sensor to make it tempting, and that may not be viable...

I just can't see that happening with a Pentax 'sports ready' full frame, there are three other players (four if you count Olympus and the EM1-2) in that area already and I can't see them getting enough of a lead to jump ahead and carve out their own piece of the pie. A self-calibration facility for AF would be appreciated though, I'm sure I heard Nikon offer something like that.

I'm not going to sift through the already 9 pages of posts in case someone has already said this, but that's going to be a tall order for Pentax/Ricoh and we all know it.

I wonder if it would be better to target the smallest full frame DSLR in the style of the KP or similar, to give them a USP of sorts. They're not going to overtake everyone on a sports camera, and I can only see the business case there being to try and make something competitive, but then undercut rivals. Not the best position to be in for profit it would seem.

An approachable full frame for consumers with 'enough' hardware controls and a not overly large/heavy body could be a route not explored yet?
