What is your drink? (Alcohol related)

I'm not a huge drinker these days, but I do like something over the weekends - I'm very traditional - my go-tos are decent scotch if there's a bottle around, (my son gives me different, interesting ones for birthdays etc) beer (ale in pubs, lager at home, usually), inexpensive wine (red or white, never rose) and gin and tonic (Gordon's) in the summer and at Christmas (also sherry and/or port at Christmas) - with the odd bottle of champagne for celebrations - I don't really drink much else, although I'll try most things once :)

A great feeling!!

I know I don't need this camera, I haven't got any APS-C lenses, and I've got no cash to spare, but it's hard not to feel like your're missing a great party ...

If I could afford the 150-450 and the K-3iii together, that would be a different story :)

We were treated to a visit by a mature male sparrowhawk to our balcony as I was making supper. Fortunately I had my camera (K-3) to hand with the 70-200 attached - it was set to an unnecessarily high shutter speed ( I forgot to check in the excitement) which resulted in a higher ISO than I'd have chosen, and it had to be shot through a double glazed window, but bearing all that in mind, I'm very happy with the result.

Not the technically best ever (apart from my own shortcomings, to me, the FA^400 has never seemed as good on digital as on film?) , but I liked the character of it - a European starling trying to access a feeder not made for it (K-3 + FA^ 400/5.6)

I'm interested that the USA has got the camera before the UK - I seem to remember it was the other way round with the K-1 - fairness or randomness, I wonder?

Actually, no - I'm aware of it, but I was still using MF film, but also having a bit of a hiatus photographically speaking when it was around - I'd just got back to England after a few years in South Africa, and I found to difficult to visually adjust to the rather tamer everything :)
