Nah a bit more drama and shows the contrast well with the feathers.

2nd one.
Because the birds are quite dark, also less of the ripple effect distracting from the bird.

IMHO.

Been trying to bring these guys to the yard for weeks.
Changed feeder and changed up the feed, they have been swarming this morning.

While not the most clear on the noise front I cranked the shutter speed up to get the wings clearly. Not sure which of three species of hummers that are in the area but happy none the less.

HA I felt the same way when I got my KP with a PLM.
Then it hit that birding is actually kind of enjoyable when you get that shot of something that just fidgets around all the time, you have to be lucky or quick or quick and lucky. Been trying to get a shot of the Anna's and Calliope hummingbirds around here, or even the several pairs of bald eagles but they all seem to know when I have or don't have my camera.

A few from the recent King tide on the Oregon coast.








Oh and that tower is like 50 feet tall those rocks are a jetty top.
Wind was so bad it blew off my shroud's CP gate. Not a chance in hell I was going after it.

I use it the most next to my sigma 18-50.
As others have said beyond 250ish they tend to go soft and you are better off manually focusing it, lower f stops with it with linear objects like grass will get you some seriously cool surreal bokeh.

I love the PLM's bokeh on linear objects like the pine needles in that 2nd shot.

The PLM is just flat awesome, it lives on my KP and loves the 1.4 tc also. I find it focuses a bit faster than my da*300 racked out, which is a shame the DA is a great lens but the weight with all the stuff is kind of a draw back.

Recently added a FA j 28-50, I thought for 10 bucks off ebay in rough shape it would be a fool around lens. Honestly a bit shocked, had a few rather nice shots out of it in the short time it was on the KP. Considering devoting some more time playing around with it.

Pretty much the same but got mine off amazon.
The one from my Benro tilt head is living on my 300.

Got a name crossed since I was looking at monitors earlier.

Worth it!!
I have giant hands, like NBA star palming a basketball sized paws. While smaller manual lenses, or light weight AF lenses were not an issue my heavier 135mm, 20-80mm, Tair-3s and DA*300 made it uncomfy. In the wet and cold last week with the DA* I noticed I was balancing on the bottom of the body with my ring finger or pinky, resulting in hand cramps and deep between the bones ache.

By the end of a couple hours I was hating my camera and trying to get a steady shot with an achy unsteady hand. I was debating shelving my KP in the damp and cold and using my FZ300 instead.
Ordered it the next day.
First thing I noticed was the way the camera balanced sporting it tourist style, second thing was it got mistaken for a film camera and a fullframe.


Mounted a swiss plate on the bottom for when I using it on the tilt head on my monopod.

Anyone shooting with the Sigma 17-50 f2.8 non OS on the KP?

KP with a Sigma dc 18-50mm f3.5-5.6 can produce some scalpel sharp images.
I thought it was a cheap learner lens like my 10 buck ebay special plastic Pentax lens, but I was wrong... oh so wrong since I have learned to love it.
It has earned it's small space in my bag next to my m 50mm f/1.7, 55-300 PLM and DA*300.
