Yeah, with better marking and customer focus in the 1970's and 80's I feel Olympus could be a large force in the camera business today.

Wow - you're within striking distance of Crater of the Moon (I have some gools panoramas for there), Yellowstone and Glacier - location envy:lol: I really enjoyed a day at Crater of the Moon.
I live in Lewes DE - lots of bird pictures

This is a tough time for changing horses. I feel mirrorless will dominate and SONY has a very big leg up. If they, along with SIGMA, come up with some solid 500/600 primes/zooms I may have to switch again. The SONY A9 just seems like a leader and my guess is that SONY, which replaces cameras quickly, already has a follow on close to ready.

I really enjoyed my years using Pentax.

I really liked the OM system - had the OM-1 to OM-4 I also liked their lenses (for their time) and still have some lenses with mount adapters. I wish I had their original circular fisheye

Nice shooting - I have not had a chance to try my Eckla - a combination of bad weather and my wife taking a bad fall.

Thanks Terry
I appreciate the comment and the information about Carpenter and Bumble Bees - I thought they were one and the same.

A couple of bumble bee shots taken handheld using 105macro and 1.4tc
The optical quality seems OK but the DOF with the TC is too shallow for me
The bees are so enchanted I can get pretty close

Thanks Chip
I have a friend with waterfront property on the Magothy River near Annapolis Maryland. His property is elevated and he had the stand built. Part of having property on the water is the great views and part is the expense. He has a sea wall eroding and the cost to have large rocks piled up this winter will be $55,000 to $65,000.

Here's a shot of the Momma Osprey checking me out. I sat back and used a radio shutter once I set up but I definitely was spotted. The nest is deceptively deep, there are two large chicks bunkered down.

Sparrow Checking you out

Focus is still a matter of some luck but sometimes you get an interesting shot.
