Default Q7 and SMC-F 80-200

Short walk with my new Q7 and the Pentax OEM adapter with SMC-F 80-200 lens. Lens stopped down to F8 shot at ISO 100 First a Limpkin then a small Blue Heron in mating plumage in a small canal. Shots processed in LR 5. I got about 25% keepers using peaking and a LCD eyepiece hood This is a lens avail. on Ebay for around $50 or less

You are making me want to get the Q's out and play around again. I had trouble with manual focusing - did OK with macro but not so good otherwise. But I also didn't work very hard at it. These shots make me think I should try again. I'm getting tired of carrying the heavy K3, something I go through every so often.
