KP vs K3 ii for wildlife photography

I'm VERY tempted to acquire a KP instead of waiting for "the next APS-C flagship".
While I like my K3, because I do a lot of shooting in less than ideal light conditions, I have "fallen back" using my trusty old K5 for this sort of photography (birds in deep woods).

According to the reviews, that would be a great choice.

Who said the K10D was "obsolete" ?? You surely manage to use it with great efficiency …. Bravo !

I'm not so sure about "better resolution" (I thought resolution had to do with MP, i.e.: 16MP vs. 24 MP, etc.) but I own a K3 and like it for the wildlife shooting I do (90% of my shots are wildlife of some type).

The only drawback is its performance at higher ISO settings... noisier while keeping good details though. My old K5 sure beats it in that department but has a lesser performing AF.


I have tested the K3 with the 150-450 … great combo but, then again, if you are going to shoot in less than ideal light conditions, the KP might be a better choice. (according to reviews).


I think that Aslyfox posted some good comparisons up there in post no. 4 above.

Well done "study", Mike ! :cool:

I assume you've owned a K3, so what would be your "guess" about the final ratios using all of those lenses on a K3 and AF-C? (comparing your results while using the K-1II).
A "wild guess" would be good enough for me ... :)
Cheers!

Is the 150-450 WORTH it on crop sensor?

Indeed the 150-450 can become quite heavy after a while, especially as you mention, for BIF photography.

Nice grapes !!
Is this what they use in Oregon for wine making?
I've heard good things about the wines from the northwestern shores.

Would the O-ME53 eye cup for my K3 be worth it (for birding).

Well, I can deal with that.
As long as I can hear the "beep", I'll know it's in focus, plus the K3 has those great top and rear LCD's which I use all the time.
So it seems that I'll give this "gadget" a try ! :)

Thank you both ! :)
Since I seldom use manual focusing while birding, do you think this could be a deterrent while using AF ?

This is probably a shot in the dark (so to speak) but I was wondering if this magnifier would be of any use to me:
My eyesight not being what it used to be and the fact that I have astigmatism in my dominant/shooting eye, I thought that this could help a bit.
I mainly do birding, especially in forested areas where the light isn't always at its best, using a K3 + DA*300/4.
BTW, I do wear glasses.

Any thought(s) on this anyone?

Does this ABC/ABCII "actively used" on the newer DFA lenses ?
