Some portrait shots from a few minutes ago. SMC A ☆ 400 F2.8 ED[IF] with Pentax F 1.7 AF adaptor. The fox is now 7 years old, I call him grandpa. He is the only fox around here with the left eye fur tuft so he is easily identified......And he is use to hearing the K3-II shutter....and the 1st D and the 1st DS....

The gray fox, an omnivore, also loves peaches, apples, pears and wild grapes and will scale many things to get at them. We now have many new wine tasting places in the Texas hill country that grow some grapes vines and they fuss about the fox eating their grapes... I have wild grape vines in my back yard, some 40 feet tall and the fox can get to almost any of the grapes on these huge vines...

It is a gray fox, an excellent tree climber. No photoshop involved....I was looking out my back deck when the male fox was looking for a meal.

I had to see how far this stacking would go, not much more I am afraid.... cropping will be better than to stack all of these.....SMC A ☆ 400 F2.8 ED[IF] w/ 1.4XL, DA 1.4X and AF 1.7 [In that order]

The females pose nicely after being dive bombed by the males! Usually they do some feather ruffling and chirping, which I can barely hear.... Here is a rare to me house finch orange/ yellow variant , first one I have seen in my yard.

If the images from the 400 f2.8 are not sharp it is operator error, every time.....I am again attempting AF-C and burst [after ignoring it for 6 months] so many of my latest post may be slightly "fuzzy!' Now that I have a minimum distance established for the lens [with the AF 1.7] to track flying objects, 30 feet, I am pleased with the results so far.....just need some more sunlight...

Miscellaneous development at Ricoh Imaging

it is an interesting development , I myself am awaiting for the 400 f2.8 auto focus patent....... but something may happen soon regarding that so stay tuned........ I have no confirmed information any 400 f2.8 autofocus lens from Ricoh/Pentax so you all will have to wait like me if Ricoh/Pentax decides to announce an upgraded version [autofocus] of the F 2.8 400....which in my opinion [possibly only my opinion] is the best lens Pentax ever made........... So before anyone wants to flame me, please tell everyone here on PF of your personal experience with the A* 400 f2.8....... and allow me to respond! I have used this lens since 1988. It is a spectacular lens, incredibly it gets better with age [ I can confirm MY experience only the K3-II], it was expensive when I purchased it new......
and still is expensive if you find one for sale as it should be for such a superb lens...
